The 5-year old Fürst Kennedy and the 6-year old Zoom won the Dressage Late Entry competition in Riesenbeck, Germany, on 30 June 2020. The L and M-level dressage horse tests served as qualifiers for the Bundeschampionate.
Portuguese Joao Moreira steered his own and Roberto Pedrosa's Oldenburg stallion Fürst Kennedy (by Fürsten-Look x Don Kennedy) to victory in the 5-year old division with 8.30. The black stallion earned 8 for walk, 9 for trot, 8.5 for canter, 7.5 for submission and 8.5 for general impression from judges Harry Lorenz, Michael Settertobulte and Katja Westendarp. Swedish Therese Nilshagen and Lodbergen's Hanoverian stallion La Vie (by Livaldon x Scolari) finished second with 8.1. points.

Johanna Klippert and Wilhelm Holkenbrink's Westfalian stallion Fashion in Black (by For Romance x Lauries Crusador xx) were third with 8.1.
The L-level dressage horse test was action packed with 16 pairs and several top professional riders presenting their youngsters. Beatrice Buchwald was fourth on her performance test winner Gaitano, yet Helen Langehanenberg had to retire Escamillo. He was already resisting in the warm up and did it again with a spin and rear during the test.
Langehanenberg had more success in the 6-year old division, which she won aboard State Stud Warendorf's Hanoverian stallion Zoom (by Zack x Don Schufro). The bay earned an 8.7 total after receiving 8.5 for walk and trot, 9 for canter, 8.5 for submission and 9 for general impression. Patrick Kraft and Lodbergen's Oldenburg stallion Finest Selection (by Follow Me x Lauries Crusador xx) were a solid second with 8.4. The black stallion earned 8.5 for walk, trot, canter, 8 for submission and 8.5 for general impression. Sabrina Gessmann and Harmony Sporthorses' Oldenburg stallion Spotify (by Sezuan x Hotline) were third with 8.3.
