Victoria Max-Theurer claimed her 11th Austrian Championship when she rode Eichendorff, her 15-year-od Westfalen stallion, to the title Sunday.

The pair posted scores of 72.87 per cent in the Grand Prix and 77.50 per cent in the Freestyle with European Championships team mate Karin Cossack and Lucy’s Day reserve on 70.62 per cent the Grand Prix and 72.83 per cent in the Freestyle, a wafer-thin margin over third placed Belinda Weinbaur on Dallas Debut with 69.83 per cent and 73.33 per cent.

The championships began in 1972 and Vici’s record of 11 straight victories far surpasses the results of any other rider.
