CHIO Aachen 2021

After an unforgettable day of top sport at CHIO Aachen, Germany’s own Daniel Deusser and Killer Queen VDM (Eldorado v. Zeshoek x For Pleasure) were crowned the winners of the €1.000.000 Rolex Grand Prix – the third Major of this season’s Rolex Grand Slam of Show Jumping. After being the best horse of the Sparkassen Youngster Cup in Aachen in 2018, then winning the RWE Prize of North Rhine-Westphalia in 2019, Killer Queen VDM took the most sought-after title of them all with Deusser when topping the Rolex Grand Prix on what is holy ground for the world’s best horses and riders.  

“This is definitely one of my top Grand Prix wins. To win the Rolex Grand Prix here in Aachen, is a dream come true,” world no. one Deusser said after his triple clear round. “The Rolex Grand Prix is always something special. Of course, as a German it was my big goal to win here in Aachen. I came very close a couple of times. It is an emotional moment to be honest!” 

In the collecting ring, Deusser’s long-time groom Sean Lynch was in tears as he realised what had just happened – while Stephan Conter was smiling from ear to ear over yet another success for his incredible team at Stephex Stables. As to Killer Queen herself, she took all the excitement with ease!  

Here we look back at some of the magic moments from Deusser’s Grand Prix win, as we congratulate him and his whole team on this incredible achievement!
