The German equestrian federation has published the list of horses that impressed the selectors and are eligible to move on to the second and final German selection trial for the 2019 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo. 

The German NF holds two selection trials: the first one is a big three-day event in Warendorf on 17 - 19 June 2019, where the selectors made a short list of horses eligible to present themselves one more time, on 2 July 2019, where the actual team is picked.

The German WCYH selection panel includes judges Reinhard Richenhagen and Klaus Ridder, as well as German team trainer Monica Theodorescu, assisted by developing team trainers Sebastian Heinze, Hans-Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen and Oliver Oelrich.

The first selection trial included a mandatory training session in front of the selectors, followed the next day by riding the preliminary test.

Quite a long list of "famous" youngsters did not make the cut. The curtain fell for Caty OLD (by Sir Donnerhall x Furst Heinrich), the Danish owned licensed stallion Damon Gold (by Damon Hill), auction price highlight Eyleen MT (by Escolar), and Oldenburg licensing champion Furst Fabrice (by Furstenball). An important no show to the qualifier, but originally entered, was Bundeschampion Finest Selection (by Follow Me x Lauries Crusador). In the 7-year old division last year's World Championship finalist Flying Dancer (by Furst Romancier) under Dorothee Schneider did not make the cut.
