Dressage: a Successful Ride into the Unknown

Totilas knows no short-time work. The now 20-year-old dressage stallion who is far beyond the limits of its sports in addition to popularity, is in demand as a sire. So a lot of times dad visited on the weekend for the deck service in his second home mills, while on his ordinary residence in the Hessian town of Kronberg, some of his children were directly behind the Stall you Can.

Matthias Rath, at tournaments and Championships in the saddle of the spectacular stallion, trained several of the sons and daughters. The current favorite is the 35-Year-old, however, is of other descent. Destacado, Raths, "in the past, complete test horse", has the genes of a Team-the Olympic champion Desperados. The second dressage festival at the Schafhof of the seven-year-old chestnut stallion, competed for the first Time in an S-test, and recommended with 76,341 percent, as the winner of the qualification for the final of the Nürnberger Burg-Pokal.

The unofficial German championship of the seven - to nine-year-old horses will be in each case decided in December the Frankfurter Festhalle tournament. Whether that will be in this from the Coronavirus-dominated year, even so, is still to be determined.

"We are still very positive," said Rath, whose family had acquired under his leadership, 2019, for the first time alone, the organization of the traditional event. That he managed to do this successfully, he knows to appreciate, in retrospect, even more. Now, the tournament Manager must be sure that he can rely on in the event of possible limitations due to the pandemic on his Team. No doubt it is for the family Linsenhoff/Rath but also due to the fact that an indoor event of this Dimension not being ridden at the normally front up to 7000 visitors, as the spirit of the tournament is out of the question.

The local Festival looked different. Here, trotted and piaffierten the Young four-legged friends merrily through the Square, while hardly anyone was watching. The riders were allowed to leave only from a Person on the premises, so that the specified limit of 250 people could be met.

According to their performance, they should leave the area around the tournament grounds. At the award ceremony, the three best were, like all the other mouth - and nose protection-supporting, grind, certificates and prizes to the foot of a table, while their horses were allowed to relax in their vans on the other side of the street.

The response was positive. Better you could not organize such a tournament, subject to conditions, said the Team Olympic gold medallist Dorothee Schneider, which regained its place in the Burg Pokal with the eight-year-old Villeneuve, and 76,049 percent directly behind Rath and three other tests won. "For us, it is important that the Sport is gathering momentum again."
