MUNICH, Germany, Nov. 10, 2017–The German Olympic team gold partnership of Dorothee Schneider and Showtime FRH returned to competition after almost a year’s out with an injury to win the Munich Indoor CDI4* Grand Prix Friday.

Dorothee and the 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding scored 79.280 per cent for the win that was the ninth victory in 22 starts since beginning Big Tour in June 2015. In 2016, the duo posted scores above 80 per cent in three Grand Prix, including the Olympics.

Following the 2016 Rio Games where the pair placed third in both the Grand Prix and the Special, Dorothee and Showtime fell from No. 3 in the world to 417th in the latest rankings.

Ingrid Klimke and SAP Geraldine placed second on 72.520 per cent in the first Big Tour event for the nine-year-old Rhinelander mare.

Ingrid’s debut of Geraldine came a day after she competed Franziskus for the first time at Grand Prix, winning the Grand Prix to qualify for the Freestyle. The German eventing star has competed at five Olympics, winning team gold on Abraxxas in 2008 and 2012 and team silver on Hale-Bob in 2016 and team gold at the 2006 and 2014 World Equestrian Games.

Catherine Haddad-Staller of the United States on Semper Fidelis was third on 70.920 per cent in the pair’s third CDI Grand Prix, all in Europe in the past two months.

Catherine, based in Califon, New Jersey and Loxahatchee, Florida in winter, with the 11-year-old Oldenburg mare is the current leader of the U.S. Equestrian Federation rankings for next year’s Tryon World Equestrian Games heading into the Florida and California winter circuits.
