The 5-year Barcelona and the 6-year old Amazing Grace won the Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the Altenkirchen qualifier on 3 - 5 May 2019 but no horses scored the minimum requirement of 8.0 to grab a ticket to Warendorf.
Seven 5-year olds competed in the L-level dressage horse test and professional Jessica Süss steered Carolin Fehlings's Hanoverian stallion Barcelona (by Beltano x Sir Savoy) to victory with 7.8.
