Prize money, world ranking points and trophy to Hans-Thorben Rüder

At Riesenbeck International, the riders and their horses have several high-quality show grounds at their disposal. While last weekend the riders were challenged on the new arena at the event hall, from Thursday to Saturday memories of the European Championships 2021 could be awakened.  Because there, where last September the championship participants had prepared for their appearances, the 13 jumping competitions had to be mastered.

At the Grand Prix of Riesenbeck, 51 pairs wanted to win prize money, world ranking points and the newly designed trophy.  10 of them qualified for the jump-off with a clear round.

And in this last requirement it went straight to the point on the beautiful large and by old oaks lined stand place. Hans- Thorsten Rüder with his 11 year old Dakota obviously wanted to win the prize money of 6375 Euros a bit more vehemently than the competition.  After 37.37 seconds the timing stopped for him, one tenth less than for the Dane Andreas Schou (0, 37.47) with I know. Philip Houston needed 37.84 seconds with Sandro's Bella without a drop - and thus took third place.

The organizers of Riesenbeck International had to accommodate over 100 more horses within a week, after last weekend had worked well, suddenly many more riders wanted to compete in spring conditions at the Surenburg.  Show director Karsten Lütteken and host Ludger Beerbaum - just returned from the Grand Prix of the Longines Global Champions Tour in Mexico as winner - were happy about the great response.

In the morning the tournament started with the final competitions of the Youngsters, the Small Tour and the Medium Tour. Here Jur Vrieling (NED) won with Kalimar, Kati Lekander (FIN) with O-Lando and Christopher Kläsener with Classic Donna.
