Hamburg Derby is one of the highlights of the year. First of all the big grass ring is really amazing to ride in, but the atmosphere is also really special. On sunday it was not possible to get tickets anymore to see the Derby, it was sold out.
For the young horses it's a pretty challenging arena because it is so big and can be very impressive for the horses. I must say I am very proud of Evita doing so well jumping clear and ending up with a 7th place in the youngster tour. Her next show will be the regional Young Horse Championship for Holsteiner horses in Elmshorn in two weeks.
Evita, myself and Fighter
Fighter also did very well at his first CSI4* show. He jumped his first 1.50 4* Grand Prix with just one fault on the last jump, we were the first out of the ribbons. With Fighter being only 9 years old he really made a step up to show us all that he can be a horse to count on in the big classes.
