He came from Hamburg but was instantly acclimatized at the event in Mannheim: Daniel Deußer won the championship at the Maimarkt with Hidalgo. “I’m quite happy that Hidalgo won his first big competition today,” so the rider of the 9-year-old stallion. “He has made a further step and I’m very satisfied with him. I have the feeling that he could become one of my best horses.”
Second place in the championship went to Niklaus Rutschi from Switzerland with Dutch gelding Windsor, third place to Alexander Schill (GER) with Holsteiner stallion Chass.
