The 5-year old Freiherr Peter and the 6-year old Visser's Hit Valeria VEC  became the winners of the rather small Bundeschampionate qualification classes held at the dressage show in Vöhl on Sunday 30 April 2023. 

5-YO: Freirherr Peter

Seven 5-year olds competed in the L-level dressage horse test but no horses obtained a high enough score to clinch a ticket to Warendorf.

The winner of the class was Mareike Mimberg-Hess aboard Peter Kremer's home bred Westfalian gelding Freiherr Peter (by Furstenball x Sandro Hit). The pair topped the board with a total of 7.60.

Mareike edged out her husband, Philipp Hess, aboard Bianka Schulte-Krist's Westfalian gelding Di Nozzo (by Dantano x L'Espoir). They were the runners-up with 7.50 points. The class was judged by Rolf Tassius, Michael Settertobulte, and Dorothee Lehan. 

6-YO: Visser's Hit Valeria VEC 

In the 6-year old division five pairs battled it out and one combination scored enough to make it to Warendorf: the winner of the class. 

Nicole Grosch aced the M-level dressage horse test aboard Sven Hecht's Oldenburg mare Visser's Hit Valeria VEC (by Vitalis x Diamond Hit). They received a winning 8.40 points from judges Ute Kombächer, Rolf Tasslus, and Michael Settertobulte. 

Two pairs tied in second place on a score of 7.50 pounts: Björn Steigauf on Jillian Wyrobnik's DSP stallion Floriano (by Floriscount x Alabster) and Hanna Rüther aboard Stephanie Schnettler's Oldenburg gelding Bugatti Gold (by Best of Gold x Sandro Hit).
