Jacob Schenk & Grenzhoehes My Ken

Jacob Schenk Wins the Pony Dressage Derby

It happened never before in the history of the Dressage Pony Derby: a boy has won the competition. 13-year-old  dressage rider Jacob Schenk from Niedersachsen won in the finals with grey pony Grenzhoes My Ken ahead of his two female opponents Nina Verina with Petit Noir (second place) and Luisa Köllner with Gentleman (third place). Schenk has been riding the 11-year-old stallion only since October. ” Then I was nominated for the Derby and it was simply great,” the winner told, excited about his victory.
