Cappeln: Superior double-win for Victoria Max-Theurer
Sunday 16. July 2017
Superior double win for Victoria Max-Theurer at Dressage Cappeln International.

After winning the Grand Prix, the Austrian Olympic Games-13th, World Cup-sixth and European Championships-fifth also won the Grand Prix Special, the “Popp & Kretschmer Modehandels GmbH” prize, on her top horse Blind Date with 74.13 percent. "An excellent test, but especially Beate’s (editor’s note: nickname of Blind Date) constant performances, after her longer break from shows, pleases me. She already appears highly focussed and in perfect shape during the last six tests in Munich-Riem, Fritzens and here at Stud Vorwerk", a happy Victoria Max-Theurer says. Indeed the preparations for the European Championship in Gothenburg/SWE in mid-August work out as planned, "… whereas we are just going to cut down the program again to make sure we maintain Beate’s really remarkable motivation."

In the absence of the current Austrian Champion Belinda Weinbauer, who had placed second in the qualifying for the Grand Prix, but who gave up her start in the Grand Prix Special in the favour of using her given CHIO permit next week in Aachen with Soehnlein Brilliant MJ, Pia Laus- Schneider and Shadow ranked second (72.21 percent) instead. The third place went to Emile Faurie, who is based in the Kasselmann stable, with Dono di Maggio (70.84 percent). The Austrian Christian Schumach with Auheim's Picardo (70.35 percent) and Astrid Neumayer with DSP Rodriguez (70.05 percent) followed at the places four and five.

Wolfgang Himsl completed the success record of family Max-Theurer’s show stable Achleiten. The veterinarian from Austria rode the Vorwerk stallion Dubrovnik NRW in the Inter I-final of the small tour, the Oldenburger Association-prize, with 72.36 percent to their victory. The Luxembourg-based Veronique Henschen with her Ferguson DELUX took second place (70.92 percent).

 In the final of the medium tour, an Inter II test, (the “Groß- und Kleintierpraxis Rottinghaus” prize) Christoph Koschel was the measure of all things on his nine-year-old Bellantines with 70.76 percent.

"We improve ourselves from year to year," Sissy Max-Theurer said. The Austrian Olympic Games-winner in dressage and hostess was able to welcome 50 riders from 20 nations with a total of 64 horses at her Stud Vorwerk. "Since we would like to organize a preparation show for the World Equestrian Games, which will be held in the US-American Tryon next year, we are planning the fifth edition of Dressage Cappeln International from the 10th to the 12th of August 2018."
