FRANKFURT, Germany, Dec. 14, 2018–Daniel Bachmann-Andersen rode Blue Hors Zepter to a personal best score to win the CDI4* Grand Prix Friday for the pair’s first victory outside their homeland of Denmark and in an event that saw the return of the two-time Olympic partnership of Kristina Bröring-Sprehe and Desperados FRH after an eight-month break from competition.

Daniel and the 10-year-old Oldenburg stallion score 78.543 per cent for the win in their fifth tournament since starting Big Tour nine months ago. The result was unanimous from the five-judge panel, with two judges awarding more than 79 per cent while his coach, Lars Petersen, a former Danish Olympian who now lives in Wellington, Florida and now rides for the United States looked on.

Kristina and Desperados, a former world No. 1 that will turn 18 on Jan. 1, placed second on 76.891 per cent. The pair were on the German team at the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games, as well as the 2014 World Equestrian Games and the 2013 and 2015 European Championships.

Fellow German Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Zaire-E were third 76.043 per cent and Isabell Werth on Don Johnson FRH in fourth on 75.087 per cent.

Kristina told dressage-news.com she is considering a few select shows with Desperados in 2019, and has no immediate plans to retire the stallion (De Niro x Wolkenstein II).

“I think he was very happy to be back in competition,” said the 32-year-old rider who started Desperados 78  times since beginning Big Tour in 2011.
