Bettina Hoy Luhmuhlen 2017 4 star dressage 16 Jun 17

Bettina Hoy (GER) takes the lead in the DHL presents CCI4*

Luhmuhlen Press Release.

After day two of the four-star-dressage, Bettina Hoy (GER) and Designer take the lead with just 36.00 penalties. As the new overnight leader she is going start in the cross-country phase.

In second place are Julia Krajewski (GER) with Samurai du Thot (37.10), followed by Marilyn Little and RF Scandalous (38.00) in third and Nicola Wilson leads the Brits in fourth place on James & Jo Lambert's Bulana. After a day of sun, wind, rain and excellent sport, everybody is now looking forward to tomorrow’s beautiful cross-country.

“Designer was really relaxed today”, says Bettina, who won this event in 2005 with Ringwood Cockatoo. “I was a little annoyed about the small fault we had in the first extended trot, but otherwise he felt great. In fact, the last trot was so good I almost forgot to halt for the final salute!“ Further, Bettina commented on how much Designer has been progressing in the last couple of years and dressage trainer Sebastian Heinze played a major part in that. “He is very good in understanding the horse and what it needs to improve.“

Julia Krajewski said she had a great day with both horses today. “Sam was really concentrating on the job in hand and his trot tour was the best we had so far. Unfortunately we had a little hick up in the last flying change, which might have cost us a few points. Riding in front of such a big stage is a challenge and I am very proud how my two have coped with it today.”

Because all the scores are so close together, the cross-country is going to be really exciting. The first rider is going on the course at 1.05pm tomorrow.
