{ WDM Wiesbaden: top sport combined with top ambiance }

Wiesbaden - Pfingstturnier 2016

The inaugural WDM at Wiesbaden was a great success. The location, the sport, the ambiance and the organization was of top level. On Whit Monday the large crowd saw Germany’s dressage queen Isabell Werth convincingly win the WDM Grand Prix Special presented by Jerich International with 79.804%. The talented 11-year-old mare Weihegold OLD received 8’s and 9’s for her passage, piaffe and flying changes. Isabell said afterwards: “The Special here in Wiesbaden was of great value and importance to us. The mare is in super form, but there are still a few things that need addressing at home.”

Second were Hubertus Schmidt and the impressive stallion Imperio 3 (Trak. by Connery) with 74.510%. Their performance was smooth and Imperio showed a good passage and piaffe and the trot exercises were strong. Fabienne Lütkemeier, winner of the WDM Grand Prix Freestyle the night before with Qui Vincit Dynamis, had to settle for third place in the Special with D’Agostino FRH with 72.902%. The 16-year-old Hannoverian gelding has a very good extended trot and canter.

Show president Kristina Dyckerhoff said afterwards: ” WDM is, of course, an enrichment for our dressage tour. The cooperation was very pleasant and we are looking forward to a further engagement.“
Isabelle Kettner, Wiesbaden’s dressage manager was very happy too: “This was a very successful premiere on five star level. This inaugural World Dressage Masters competition was great for both riders and public and we are looking forward to next year – again with WDM and five stars and again with the sport on all levels, from ponies to the Grand Prix cracks.”
Camil Smeulders, managing director of WDM concluded: “Super sport, a superb location and large numbers of spectators. The cooperation with the Wiesbaden organization, Kristina Dyckerhoff and Isabelle Kettner was perfect. We could not wish for more.”
