The 5-year old Willem and the 6-year old Faris Girl were the winners of the tiny Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the Heroldsberg Dressage Days on 23 - 25 June 2017. With only three 5-year olds and three 6-year olds entered the L and M-level dressage horse tests were not too exciting.
Franziska Stieglmaier, the 2016 German Under 25 Champion, rode Rhenania horses' Rhinelander gelding Willem (by Wynton x Lancer II) to the trophy in the 5-year old division. The pair scored a 7.6 total, which does not suffice for qualification for Warendorf. The bay gelding to 7.5 for walk, trot, canter, 8 for submission and 7.5 for general impression. Stefan Brünen and Henning Mues' Oldenburg stallion Show Time (by Serano Gold x Londonderry) were second with 7.4. The stallion got 8 for walk and trot, 7 for canter, 6.5 for submission and 7.5 for general impression.

Andrea Dlugos and the Wurttemberger bred mare Faris Girl (by Furstenball x Rubin Roya) finished first on 8.0 with 8 for walk, 8.5 for trot, 7.5 for canter and submission and 8.5 for general impression.
