Already thinking about tomorrow – when winning the first qualifying class for Friday’s Mercedes German Masters, the 38-year old German Daniel Deußer has set himself up nicely for a place in the second most important jumping competition at the 35th International Stuttgart German Masters Horse Show in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle.

Riding the nine-year old Belgian bred mare Kiana van het Herdershof (Toulon x Lys De Darmen), the team bronze medal winner from the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro pipped runner-up Luciana Diniz (POR) by nine hundredth of a second in the Prize of the XXL-Sicherheit. Deußer left all the fences standing when crossing the finishing line in a time of 66.34 seconds– the Brazilian-born rider needed 66.43 seconds. The Hanoverian mare Fit For Fun (For Pleasure x Fabriano) also completed the course without any faults. The third place went to the British rider Emily Moffitt in the saddle of the 14-year old stallion Copain du Perchet CH (Conteur x Ragazzo) with a clear round in 66.69 seconds. 

The second qualifying class – the Prize of Aragon Robotics – for the Mercedes German Masters is on Friday at 17.15 hours local time. Only the top twelve riders from the two qualifying competitions will then go on to compete in the Mercedes German Masters at 22:15 hours – Daniel Deußer therefore has a very good chance of being in the mix.
