After trying to win this class for the last 20 years, Holger Wulschner made it a home victory for Germany in Sunday's CSI3* 1.55m Grand Prix of Redefin. Wulschner rode the Holsteiner mare BSC Cha Cha Cha (Casall x Le Grand), and ended the jump-off with a time of 39,82 seconds – a second faster than runner-up Doron Kuipers (NED) with Charley (Calido I x Askari).

Third place was shared between Netherlands and Germany, as Michel Hendrix with Baileys (Indoctro x Come On) and Michael Kölz with FST Dipylon (Dinglinger x Lavall) both crossed the finish line in the exact same time - 41,56 seconds.

Rolf Moormann (GER) was just slightly slower riding Samba de Janeiro 3 (Stolzenberg x Glenfiddich), taking 5th place. It was only one more double clear in the class, that had eleven riders qualified for the jump-off – and that came from Germany’s Amke Stroman riding Forchello (For Pleasure x Collin). 

”I have been trying to win this class for about 20 years, and now I finally succeed,” Holger Wulschner said after his win in the Grand Prix of Redefin sponsored by Deutschen Kreditbank AG. ”Earlier I often got annoyed that I couldn’t show everything that she can do,” Wulschner said about his horse BSC Cha Cha Cha and continued “Andreas Knippling has been helping me, and then my wife rode Cha Cha Cha for six month and I was watching her. First then I understood what Andreas meant. I always wanted too much”.
