“There weren’t any real flaws in our performance – I’m very content,” British Michael Eilberg sad, happy about his success in the Prix St. Georges at the Schindlhof in Fritzens. The pair (two times World Champions in Verden) achieved 76,579 percent. Meanwhile the chestnut mare by Fürst Heinrich is nine years old and seems to grow into the big sport. “She has a special aura,” Eilberg said. “It is really nice to be able to guide her to the top sport. We want to take our time, I have to be patient and careful. But it really looks great.” Second and third place went to Wibke Bruns (GER) with Elisabeth Max-Theurer’s horses: 8-year-old mare Donna Caribica (72,026 percent) and 8-year-old stallion San Francisco OLD (71,421 percent).
Dorothee Schneider (GER) also had a great success. She competed in her first Grand Prix with the 9-year-old Sandro Hit son Showtime – and won by a clear margin. In the end, the result for this debut were 73,480 percent. Second place went to colleague Jessica von Bredow-Werndl with Zaire (70,240 percent), third place to Michael Eilberg with Woodlander Dornroschen (69,660 percent).
