“I would describe this as the greatest success of my career,” Germany’s Patrick Stühlmeyer said after being crowned the overall winner of the BEMER Riders Tour 2021/2022 on home soil at Horses & Dreams in Hagen, after finishing 15th in Friday's CSI4* 1.60m Bemer Riders Tour Final. 

Almost exactly 365 days after collecting his first points in the BEMER Riders Tour 2021/2022 at Horses & Dreams, the 31-year-old showjumper from Steinfeld/Mühlen finished the series as the overall winner for the first time and was celebrated with a champagne shower.

None of the other riders could catch Stühlmeyer on the overall standing, as he had a 21-point lead coming into the final. “I scored points with four different horses, and they all belong to my boss Paul Schockemöhle. I want to thank him for making it possible for me to ride so well,” said Stühlmeyer with a smile. As to who will drive the brand-new Land Rover – the prize for the overall winner of the BEMER Riders Tour – in the future, there will no doubt be an agreement. Dominique Hendrickx (BEL) and Angelique Rüsen (GER), who finished second and third overall, also happily cruised around the jumping arena in their new luxury brand vehicles. 

It was Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) and Glamour Girl (VDL Zirocco Blue x Caletto I) that won Friday's CSI4* 1.60m competition in Hagen. Twelve of the fifty riders in the class moved on to the second round, where the Swedish rider and the 11-year-old mare were the fastest with a time of 44.83 seconds. With a runner-up finish for Dominique Hendrickx aboard Koriano Van Klapscheut (Lord Z x Darco), the Belgian rider climbed up on the overall standings, after finishing round two in 45.17 seconds. The third place in the class went to Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann (GER), who was best of the home riders with Messi Van't Ruytershof (Plot Blue x For Pleasure) in a time of 45.41 seconds against the clock. 

The first leg of the BEMER Riders Tour 2022/2023 will be jumped in Hagen on Sunday.
