Verden: Bronze for ZINQ Escalla OLD FH


Last weekend, the horse town of Verden an der Aller was all about the German Youth Dressage Championships.

Also nominated for the Championships was Lana-Pinou Baumgürtel with the only seven-year-old Escolar daughter ZINQ Escalla OLD FH. The newly formed pair had recommended themselves by winning the Westphalian Youth Championships in August. And also in Verden, the 17-year-old Lana-Pinou showed great nerves of steel and drove the Escolar – Dimaggio daughter, bred by Maike Hinrichsen, sovereignly to bronze place in the DJM Juniors. A perfect 73 percent in the first round and 74.947 percent in the second round were topped by 77.2 percent in the advanced (S*) level freestyle dressage test on the final day. No wonder that a beaming Lana-Pinou Baumgürtel could be seen at the award ceremony.

We sincerely congratulate them on these impressive results and look forward to further glamorous performances by this likeable couple.
