Hann.Pr.A. German Girl was nominated best show jumping mare. Hann.Pr.A. Black Baccara K  was decorated with the oak wreath in the division of dressage mares before accomplishing her lap of honour. “I was already judge at the first Herwart v. d. Decken-Show in 2007. It was impressive to see how the breed has further advanced,” Dr. Matthias Görbert, Moritzburg, praised the participants. He judged the 65 mares together with Konrad Böth from Niederwalgern, member of the Board, and Breeding and Business Manager Dr. Werner Schade.


The show jumping mares shined during the spectacular free jumping under the open sky. Their pedigrees featured brilliant international competition bloodlines. The jumping capabilities of Hann.Pr.A. German Girl by Graf Top/Stakkato (breeder and exhibitor: Wilhelm Klausing GbR, Diepholz) were honoured with the highest score of 10. “Powerful and athletic, very cautious and displaying all possibilities,” was the comment of Dr. Werner Schade when evaluating the right sister of the Stakkato-prize winner Grand Stakkato. Reserve winner was nominated the I'm Special de Muze/Acadetto-daughter, Hann.Pr.A. I'm special Laisa (breeder and exhibitor: Frank Johannsen, Buxtehude). And Dr. Matthias Gröbert summarized: “The Hanoverian breed achieved the greatest progress with the jumping mares. They convinced with intelligence and potential. The future will be bright!”


The impressive trot of Hanoverian state premium candidate Black Baccara K by Bon Bravour/Rosario (breeder and exhibitor: Katrin Lüder-Kratzberg, Hildesheim) was already rewarded with applause during the presentation on the triangle. The black mare outshined her competitors and was nominated Champion dressage mare. “She convinced not only with her gaits, but also with her composure and overall view,” said Dr. Matthias Görbert. The eagerly moving Hann.Pr.A. Suri by San Amour/Fürst Heinrich (breeder: Bernd Volbers, Beesten – exhibitor: Heinrich Gießelmann, Barver) came in Reserve Champion. “The Hanoverian dressage horse breed has always been in a leading and trend-setting position with its solid damlines!”


Han.Pr.A. Leny B by Lauries Crusador xx/Donnerhall (breeder: Heinz-Hermann Leismann, Tecklenburg – exhibitor: Insa Borchers, Rastede) was nominated best halfbred mare of the Herwart von der Decken-Show.
