The CSI4* 1.55m Grand Prix der Deutschen Kreditbank (DKB) in Groß Viegeln went to Emanuele Gaudiano (ITA), riding the only 8-year-old gelding Chalou (Chacco Blue x Baloubet Du Rouet).

There were 45 riders in the class, and ten cleared their way to the jump-off. The course set by the German course designer Marco Hesse had 13 obstacles and 16 efforts in it in the first round, with a time allowed of 79 seconds. 

Gaudiano clocked the winning time of 39,25 seconds in the jump-off, securing him the first prize of 6,300 euros and a brand new Mitsubishi ASX. Patrick Stühlmeyer (GER) on his loyal 14-year-old stallion Lacan 2 (Lando x Contender) placed second after stopping the clocks on 39,73 seconds in the jump-off.

"Patrick was quick, but not quick enough," smiled Gaudiano after the class. "We will definitely come here again, with pleasure!" said the happy winner as he thanked the show organizer Holger Wulschner for the great event. 

With a time of 40,27 seconds in the jump-off, Derin Demirsoy (TUR) on his 13-year-old stallion Harry K (Equest Carnute x Robin Z II) took the third spot and Ulf Ebel (GER) on the 13-year-old gelding Les Lennet (Livello x Cascavelle) placed fourth with a time of 41,96 seconds. Andreas Knippling (GER) on the 10-year-old stallion Hertoch van't Prinsenveld (Casario II x Cento) placed fifth with a time of 42,50 seconds in the jump-off. 

Show organizer Holger Wulschner thanked his team for the event that turned out a success, giving special thanks to his wife Astrid. "On Thursday we thought that maybe we should call in sick and stay in bed instead," Wulschner laughed. "But to see the audience stay here and watch on Sunday afternoon regardless of the weather - that was the biggest reward!”
