Verden. At the free jumping competition of the Hannoveraner jumper breeding programme, the young talents showed impressive performances. In the three-year-old class, two young horses were convincing: Cherobino and Cornetta Crisp PJ became champions with the same result. The best four-year-old was Oscar D. "Especially in the four-year-old class we had a strong field with many interesting participants, also from a sport rider's point of view," said Mario Stevens, who judged the Hannoveraner horses together with Thomas Schönig.
One of the first horses to start was Cherobino by Chacfly PS/Sunlight xx (breeder: Egest Thaden, Varel, exhibitor: Ekke and Egest Thaden, Butjadingen), who set the first standards with a score of 26.6. Cornetta Crisp PJ by Cornet Obolensky/Cassini II (breeder and exhibitor: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs, Bierbergen) was just as good. The bay followed her sister, Hann.Pr.St. Skippy Jo PJ by Stakkato, who left Verden as the winner five years ago. The 41 representatives of the 2018 vintage competed in three divisions, divided according to performance. The third division was won by a stallion from the Celle State Stud with 26.4 points. The granddam of the bay (breeder: Alois Naber, Saterland) is the full sibling of the internationally successful state stud stallion Iberio.
The highest score of the day of 27.7 was achieved by the 2017 born Oscar ‚D by Ogano/Quantus (breeder and exhibitor: Duchac Training Stable, Hann. Münden), who convinced with his nonchalance and his great scope. It was a double victory, also the winner of the second division of the 33 four-year-olds came from the Duchac training stable: Chica Bonita D by Chacoon Blue/Now or Never M, whose score for technique, scope and overall impression/jumping intelligence was 27.1.
The free jumping competition of the Hannoveraner show jumping breeding programme was supported by the State Stud Celle, the stallion station Ludger Beerbaum Stables in Riesenbeck and the company Eggersmann, Rinteln.
