Freestyles with top scores in Achleiten

The third day of the CDI4* in Achleiten was all about terrific freestyle performances.


Most notably: the Swiss Birgit Wientzek Pläge with Robinvale! With a personal best of 79.125 percent, the 48-year-old from the canton of Solothurn won ahead of Lisa Müller (GER) with Birkhof’s Dave FBW, who finished second, also with a personal best of 75.5 percent.

Third place was taken by the Australian Simone Pearce with Scolari (73.5). The best Austrians were Franziska Fries and Atomic, who finished fifth with 71.975 percent, ahead of Italy’s #1 Valentina Truppa with Ranieri (70.65).

Birgit Wientzek Pläge won the Freestyle at her Achleiten debut, “It was a special honor for me to be allowed to ride here in this beautiful castle park. It’s unbelievable that we also won.“

It is also unbelievable what the 11-year-old gelding that Birgit Wientzek Pläge has been riding for three years showed in the dressage arena to the music of Enya, “I had the feeling that he really danced along for the first time today.“

Lisa Müller was equally satisfied with her Dave, “We always feel very comfortable here in Achleiten. I am super happy with our performance. Dave loves this Freestlye, he loves the music of Joe Dachtler. Our top score was the bonus.“

On Sunday, the Austrian-German dual citizen, who participates in the Grand Prix Special as well, will again receive support from her husband Thomas Müller, football world champion and star of Bayern München.

In the final show highlight on Sunday, the Grand Prix Special (starting at 1 pm), Austria’s European Championship candidates meet again in the direct score duel in the dressage arena.
