Austrian success at Dressur Cappeln International
Saturday 15. July 2017
Best mood is among the Austrian team, since the first, second, fourth, fifth and eighth place of the two main competitions on the first day of Dressage Cappeln International went to the riders from the Alpine Republic.

In the end Victoria Max-Theurer won the “Sieverding Heizungs- und Sanitärtechnik“ Grand Prix, the qualification of the Grand Prix Special on Sunday. The Austrian World Cup-sixth, European Championship-fifth and Olympic Games-13th rode her Blind Date to 74.06 percent and was simply happy: "Beate (editor’s note: nickname of Blind Date) continues to her former performance and comes back in shape after her long break. There is still room for improvement though. "Overall, the show at Stud Vorwerk was a great day for Austria. "We have a strong team, as never before and a great spirit. We eagerly await the European Championships in August in the Swedish Gothenburg." This is also the opinion of the second-placed Belinda Weinbauer, who received 71.60 percent on her Soehnlein Brilliant MJ: "Despite the rain, I had a very good feeling on him, he was very rideable. Soehnlein Brilliant MJ is a really relieable horse." Astrid Neumayer with DSP Rodriguez (69.64 percent), Christian Schumach and Auheim's Picardo (68.56 percent) and Renate Voglsang with Royal Happiness OLD (67.64 percent) ranked fourth, fifth and eighth. Only Pia Laus from Italy managed to break the red-white-red phalanx together with her horse Shadow on the third place.

In the Grand Prix qualifying for the freestyle test on Saturday, the “Uwe Kraft Reitsportgeräte & Metallbau GmbH“- prize, the Olympic team-second Helen Langehanenberg celebrated her already third international Grand Prix victory (70.58 percent) this summer with her only nine-year-old youngster Suppenkasper. The US-American Kathleen Raine and Breanna ranked second with 69.06 percent. Third place went to Renate Vogelsang with Fratello (68.36 percent).


In the international dressage horse test for seven-year-old horses Roberto Carlos MT, who grew up at Stud Vorwerk, and his rider Stefan Lehfellner/AUT, almost reached the magical 80 percent mark with the winning result of 78.28 percent.
