Due to the corona pandemie, the Herwart von der Decken-Show took place in the Niedersachsenhalle and not on the newly designed show ground. Besides board member Jörn Wedermann and breeding director Ulrich Hahne, the Danish horse expert Ib Kirk from Katrinelund Stud belonged to the judges' trio. The excellent three-year olds turned the auction hall into a glittering ballroom. Like a prima ballerina Hann.Pr.A. Romy by Revolution/Belissimo M (breeder and exhibitor: Gestüt Greim, Bärnau) danced on the triangular course with a sure touch and was celebrated by the audience. Not least on the walk ring, the dark chestnut mare set new standards and became sovereign dressage champion mare. She goes back to the foundation mare Sefaza, one of the most successful Hannoveraner dam lines. The privately owned stallion Revolution, whose career began five years ago at the same place with a spectacular appearance at the Verden licensing and stallion sales, is thus providing a highlight with a representative of his first crop. The Reserve Champion Mare Bon Bon by Bon Coeur/Waterford (bred: (breeder: Marion Gabel, Kreuzebra, exhibitor: Eike Bewerungen and Marion Gabel, Oldenburg) left hardly any wishes unfulfilled: Impressive in expression and with a strong back she had a powerful hindquarters and modern riding horse points. Since she has not yet been shown at a mare show, she can now also call herself a Hannoveraner Premium Candidate. A total of 53 dressage mares competed for the coveted title. "We were excited about the Hannoveraner dressage mares," Ib Kirk summed up. "I am not surprised that the quality was so high."


The crown of the 19 mares with jumping genes was set by the daughter of Chacoon Blue/Stolzenberg, Hann.Pr.A. Charlize (breeder and exhibitor: Hermann Nehus, Haren). In free jumping, the modern, sporty bay from the dam line of Flimmerkind convinced with high elasticity. Equipped with spirit and wonderful type, she led the field. The Vice Champion, Poppy Lifton by Perigueux/Cheenook (breeder and exhibitor: Gestüt Waldsee GmbH, Bad Zwischenahn) was hardly inferior. The bay was born with this talent, a full brother of her dam competes on S-level. Not only can she be happy about this title, she was also awarded the Hannoveraner Premium on this occasion. 


Traditionally in the Hannoveraner breed the use of thoroughbred stallions is popular. A prime example for the importance of noble blood is Hann.Pr.A. Ixxi CE by Il Divo xx/Don Frederico (breeder: Indra Wallner, Moltzow, exhibitor.: Claudia Hein-Riemann and Eduard Riemann, Alsbach). The vividly modelled bay with dedicated movements was judged to be the best half-breed mare.
