Several top horses have "stepped into their childhood horseshoes" in the prestigious German dressage tournament, the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal, for dressage horses aged 7-9 years. The 2023 final, held annually at the Internationales Festhallen Reitturnier Frankfurt, has just concluded with an impressive second place for our fantastic breeding stallion Lord Europe with our talented German Helgstrand rider Leonie Richter. They finished the final with a great score of 75.365%.
In addition, they claimed victory in the Small Freestyle – St. Georges Special Kür with an overall score of 9.5.
Congratulations to Leonie and our entire German team at Helgstrand Germany!
The Nürnberger Burg Pokal competition is for the top 12 young dressage horses in Germany. It is often the beginning of a successful career for the 12 young stars who have qualified through 8 qualifying events throughout the year. The winners of the qualifying events go directly to the final, supplemented by the top 4 second-placed horses in the qualifiers.
