Jessica von Bredow-Werndl's Sir Max is spending a few days in the equine clinic in Wolfesingen to get treatment for minor injuries he sustained while slipping  and falling.

Sir Max is an 8-year old Hanoverian gelding by St. Moritz Junior out of Deliness (by Del Piero x Weltmeyer x Lemon xx). He is bred by Tanja Finck and owned by the Werndls in partnership with Tim Koch.

The bay gelding was first competed as a 4-year old by Marc-Oliver Blessing. In 2016 Kristina Olson took over and in 2017 it was Alexandra Sessler who took him tto developing Prix St Georges. Sir Max competed at the 2018 World Young Horse Championships in Ermelo, The Netherlands, where he finished 8th in the 7-year old Finals. 

Sir Max moved to Werndl's Aubenhausen yard in September 2018 and is being prepared for the Grand Prix work.

Jessica has competed him at small tour level this year at shows in Stadl Paura, Ebreichsdorf, Hagen, Munich, Kirchstockach and Ising. The last three classes she won in a row.

On Monday 18 November 2019 the tall black gelding spooked on his way to the field. He slipped and fell. Because he sustained some wounds to his hock, he was brought to the equine clinic for proper medical care.

"He has to stay in the clinic for a few days and I went to see him every day," said Jessica. "it is looking very good. He didn't get any fever and there was no swelling. We just need some good vibes that everything will be fine."
