VIDEO - Danish Daniel Bachmann Andersen kept the Germans behind for today´s Louisdor Preis qualifier

Prestigious victory for Danish Daniel Bachmann Andersen today in Hagen

Being foreign rider competing at this national Loiusdor Preis qualifier, which is a competition for 8-10 year old young Grand Prix horses, is as a startingpoint maybe not the easiest odds.

But a very solid and well balanced test without any issues from Blue Hors rider Daniel Bachmann Andersen with the 8 year old breeding stallion Blue Hors Veneziano by Vivaldi secured him the well deserved victory, in front of Germanys big names Hubertus Schmidt and Isabell Werth. 

Qualifier for the final is Sunday 10.30 at Hagen. 

Further qualifiers are:

  • Wiesbaden 18 - 21 May 2018
  • Werder 21 - 24 June 2018
  • Donaueschingen 16 - 19 August 2018
  • Ising 4 - 9 September 2018
  • Oldenburg 1 - 4 November 2018

Isabell Werth showed the expressive elegant stallion DSP Belantis by Benetton Dream, but he is still not settled enough to be able to show the piaffe steps as he is not really carrying hind, but instead showing a kind of pushing out and becomes somewhat crop high.
