The first ones to enter the arena in Achleiten were the Children, i.e. the age category 12 to 14 years. There, the Viennese Katharina Fadrany (14) with Laureen 3 took her second international victory after her success on Thursday.

The athlete, 7th in last year’s European Championships, is trained by Stephanie Dearing, who proudly said, “Katharina is highly motivated and comes to us to Carinthia every weekend for training.“

In the category Young Riders, the Belgian Antonia Arl won just like the day before, this time before her team colleague Numa Verberne. Best Austrian once again was Victoria Wurzinger with Dorian on 3rd place with a score of almost 70 percent. Marie Christine Fuhs and Perfect Illusion SJP placed 4th.

In the category Juniors, the Belgian Antonia Arl also took the victory – this time with Equestricons Lagerfeld K and a score of 71.036 percent. The Austrians Nicola Louise Ahorner with Robbespiere (70.495) and Victoria Wurzinger with Bvlgari (70.27) ranking 2nd and 3rd showed their ambitions for the European Championships.

The European Championships in Dressage in the categories Children (12 to 14 years), Juniors (14 to 18 year) and Young Riders (16 to 21 years) will take place in Roosendaal (NED; 9 to 13 August).

Karoline Valenta and Valenta’s Diego used the U25 sighting for a double victory. On Saturday, they won the Grand Prix with a score of 67.713 percent. The U25 Dressage European Championships will be held in Salzburg, Lamprechtshausen (30 August to 3 September).
