No one could beat Hans-Thorben Rüder and his speedy mare Orlanda (Julio Mariner x Caretino) in the CSI3* Grand Prix in Odense, and the German rider repeated his win from last weekend in Kiel.

Eleven riders were clear and qualified for the second round. Germany's Johannes Ehning with Judith Goelckel's Salvador V (Calvados x Voltaire) started as number three and pulled off a great jump-off in 29,39 seconds - putting some real pressure on those to come. Sweden's Rolf-Göran Bengtsson got really close with Unita Ask (Corrado I x Caretino) being just one hundred of a second slower. Then it was time for Hans-Thorben Rüder and Orlanda, that is in top form at the moment. With 28,70 seconds they secured the first place.

Germany's David Will went in as last rider with Mic Mac du Tillard (Cruising x Galoubet A), but this time he couldn't do anything about Hans-Thorben Rüder. Will managed to squeeze in to second place though with a time of 29,20 seconds.
