A rush of medals at the European Championships for the German national equestrian team!

Fendt is the proud sponsor of the national equestrian team. For many years, teams from Germany have dominated international equestrian events, as was also the case this year at the Show Jumping and Dressage European Championships in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and the Three-Day Event Championships in Luhmühlen, Germany.

Gold for the dressage team

Gold medals go to the German dressage team of (left to right) Dorothee Schneider, Isabell Werth, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, Sönke Rothenberger and Klaus Röser.

In glorious weather, medals were awarded in Rotterdam in the dressage and show jumping disciplines. The German team under national trainer Monica Theodorescu virtually swept the board in dressage.

With victory in the team competition and two more gold medals for Isabell Werth and double silver for Dorothee Schneider, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl rounded off a successful championship with a bronze medal in the freestyle event.

Silver for the German show jumpers

Medals in the show jumping were hard fought. A neck and neck race saw Belgium pip Germany to the gold medal. In the individual contest, Swiss rider Martin Fuchs finished ahead of Ben Maher from the UK and Belgian Jos Verloy.

Reigning world champion Simone Blum on Alice narrowly missed out on the medals, finishing in fourth place, with her teammate Markus Ehning in fifth.

One week later in Luhmühlen, the German team were victorious, leading from start to finish. 12 riders battled it out for medals and positions at the European Championships on home soil. The team led by Michael Jung and Ingrid Klimke took top spot following the dressage, and remained in pole position for the individual title after the cross country. In the end, gold went to Ingrid Klimke on Hale Bob, and silver to Michael Jung and Chipmunk – a fantastic result.
