Also this year, the E-line set accents: In the qualification of the 6-year-old dressage horses, the Escolar-Fürstenball son Ecco with Leslie Rohrbacher was able to recommend himself for Warendorf with a second place.
The qualification of the 3-year-olds was won by a granddaughter of Estobar NRW. The Escamillo daughter Elvissa won with Jessica Lynn Thomas in the saddle with a score of 9.3 (!). Second place went to a son of Escolar, bred by Hedda Ottmann-Droege out of a Belarus daughter. The gelding was ridden by Bianca Nowag-Aulenbrock. In third place was Ernesto BB, a son of Ehrenstolz.
In the 3-year-old stallions, the licensed Elastic by Escolar-Dimaggio under Maxi Kira von Platen placed second, closely followed by the also licensed Etienne by Escolar-Sir Donnerhall I, presented by Lisa Horler.
Also in the 4-year-old mares and geldings a daughter of Escolar impressed. The strong-stepping Escolar-Sir Donnerhall I daughter Ella Suerte was presented by Charlotte Tollhopf and ranked second by the judges.
We keep our fingers crossed for all finalists in the finals on Sunday.
