WDM Wiesbaden: Lütkemeier reins in Freestyle

In a beautiful floodlit setting Fabienne Lütkemeier won the WDM Grand Prix Freestyle presented by VIAN GROUP with Qui Vincit Dynamis. The pair danced to 76.750%. Fabienne was happy, the day before she said after the Grand Prix: “I never competed in the floodlight freestyle in Wiesbaden with him before. So I am very excited to see how it will go tomorrow, but I trust on his wisdom, he is 17-years-old.” And she was right, the Oldenburger gelding performed superbly. They received eights for their piaffe and flying changes and for elasticity and harmony between rider and horse. Afterwards the International Business School graduate from Paderborn smiled: “„I am completely happy with Quinci. He did such a good job and we really enjoyed it. I have used D’Agostino’s Freestyle as I did during the World Cup Final in Las Vegas. It is a difficult Freestyle, but Quinci can do it and it fits him.”

Second place went to Juliane Brunkhorst and her 11-year-old Hannoverian stallion Fürstano with 74.350%. The pair received high marks for their half-passes in trot and in canter and passage. Italy’s Valentina Truppa finished in third place with the 19-year-old Fixdesign Chablis with 73.450%. The horse is still in top form and Valentina was in tears after her test and said: “I have been riding him since he was three-years-old. He means more to me than a boyfriend.”
