Verden. He is one of the most successful German dressage horses in the youngster sector. Now he has been awarded the name supplement of Hannoveraner Förderverein: Carlos FRH. With rider Hannah Erbe, the dark bay has won eight gold medals at European Junior and Young Rider Championships so far and is preparing to continue his successful path with the U25 riders.
The son of Carabas/Weltmeyer, registered in the Rhineland, was born at Franz Johann Reinartz in Eupen, Belgium, in 2007. When Carlos was seven years old, Hannah Erbe discovered him with her trainer Heiner Schiergen. Just one year later, the two won their first titles at the Junior European Championships in Vidauban/FRA. The talented young dressage rider won many more gold medals. Carlos FRH was also top placed in the finals of the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal and the Louisdor Prize. "Carlos is an exceptional horse! He has given me so much," says Hannah Erbe.
Carlos FRH and Hannah Erbe have been training with Johann Hinnemann at the Krüsterhof in Voerde for two years and are on their way to Grand Prix level. They already celebrated their first victory at this level in May last year in Vreschen-Bokel/GER. The last title win was not long ago. In August 2020, the two became European Vice Champions with the German U25 team in Pilisjászfalu/HUN. "Carlos really deserves the FRH award, I still want to ride with him as much as possible," Hannah Erbe is happy. The awarding of Carlos FRH is planned at a suitable occasion in front of a large crowd of spectators for later this year.
