It's been home rider Felix Hassmann that so far has stolen the show at CSI3* Nörten-Hardenberg. The German rider snatched the wins in both Friday and Saturday's feature classes; the 1.45 Kreis-Sparkasse Northeim Prize and the 1.50 Championat of Nörten-Hardenberg.

Today's victory came on the 13-year-old stallion Horse Gym's Balzaci (Balou du Rouet x Ex Libris), in a competition where the German riders turned out to be a dominating force. The top four in the class all represented the host nation, but fastest of them was Felix who stopped the clock on 44.10 seconds in the jump-off. Far behind was Hendrik Dowe, two seconds slower on Una Acorada (Acoradox Coriano) while third place went to Markus Brinkmann on Pikeur Dylon (Diamant de Semilly x Carry). Fourth placed was occupied by Markus Beerbaum. 

Friday's victory came on Cayenne WZ (Claudio x Ramirado) for Hassmann, and again more German riders followed him. Franz-Josef Dahlmann was second on Carlson (Colorit x Auftritt) and Hendrik Dowe third on Con Touch S (Con Cento x Capitol I).
