Canela Fight, Mario, Diatendra and Crazy Daisy win titles
On the first weekend in December, Verden was all about show jumpers. The stallion licensing was embedded in the Hannoveraner Show Jumping Masters. Top sport was shown in the Niedersachsenhalle. Canela Fight, Mario as well as the two former Verden auction horses Diatendra and Crazy Daisy won the titles. The most successful rider was Alexa Stais, who, in addition to winning the seven- and eight-year-old classes, achieved four other top-three results.
The first Masters winners were determined on Friday. The Canstakko/Fighting Alpha daughter Canela Fight (breeder: Frank Johannsen, Buxtehude) took the title in the class for young show jumping horses with a score of 8.8. The typey Hannoveraner premium candidate was ridden by Antonia Neuburg. Second place went to Catch Me M by Cador/Silvio (breeder: Peter Mahler, Neuhaus/Oste) with Tim-Uwe Hoffmann, who had already won the Hannoveraner Show Jumping Championships in July - at that time still with Christian Temme in the saddle. Two horses finished third: Companero PJ by Comme il faut/Quality Time (breeder: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR, Bierbergen) with Roman Duchac, who found a new owner at the Verden auction in April this year, and Contendro KA by Contendro/Graf Top (breeder: Karsten Asendorf, Morsum) with Alexa Stais.
It was exciting in the six-year-old class, which competed in an M** jump-off for the victory. Harm Wiebusch had the best nerves when he rode his Mario by Marius Claudius/Graf Grannus (breeder: Andrea and Norbert Wulf, Schillsdorf) into the jump-off as the last competitor and won the title in superior style. Second place in the Hannoveraner Show Jumping Masters went to the Stakkato/Werther daughter Seniora (breeder: ZG Manfred Kregel and Anton Schindele, Laatzen) and Alexa Stais. Bronze went to Daisy and Julia Plate. The Diarado/Canstakko daughter comes from their own breeding. The two were lucky, they had so much momentum that rider and horse separated after crossing the finish line, but still delivered the fastest four-fault round.
The five-year-olds also had to ride against the clock in the M* jumping final. Eight of the 27 participants made it into the jump-off, only one delivered a clear round: The former Verden auction horse Diatendra by Diatendro/Carolus (breeder: Michael Schenk, Niendorf) won the white and yellow winner's sash with Roman Duchac. With the fastest time, but one fence down, Alexa Stais took another silver ribbon with her Toulon/Goldfever son Toujolow (breeder: Norbert Bramlage, Dinklage) after third place in the four-year-olds and second place in the six-year-olds. Third place went to the Clinton's Heart/Zacharias daughter Clinton's Edelbiene (breeder: Dietrich Brünjes, Alfstedt) and Melissa Fricke.
The last decision of the Hannoveraner Show Jumping Masters was made in the seven and eight-year-old classes. The jump-off was a triumph for Alexa Stais. The South African rider, who had already jumped to a podium place in all of the other age group Masters, won the advanced (S*) level jumping competition with Crazy Daisy by Chacco-Blue/Graf Top (breeder: Joachim Schwarze, Obernkirchen) and came second with the Ludwigs As/Stakkato son Lucato Mad Jo (breeder: Jochen Meyer, Allwörden). Crazy Daisy, like the winner of the five-year-olds, belonged to the collection of a Verden auction. This also applies to the Stakkato/Espri-daughter Suzi Quatro (breeder: Tessa Pfeil, Elmlohe), who was also bought by her rider Enrico Süßenbach in the Niedersachsenhalle and finished third.
