WIESBADEN, Germany, June 12–Great Britain’s Laura Bechtolsheimer and Mistral Hojris easily beat Totilas and his new German rider, Matthias Alexander Rath, who finished third in the Grand Prix qualifier for the Special at the Wiesbaden CDI4* Sunday for the horse’s lowest ever score at Grand Prix.

The ride by Laura and the 16-year-old Danish warmblood gelding nicknamed “Alf,” was only the second of 2011 for the pair that won three silver medals at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky last year and are ranked third in the world.

Laura and Mistral Hojris, who was her mount at the 2008 Olympic Games and on whom she led the British team to the silver medal at the 2009 European Championships, scored 78.766 per cent, a long way from the best scores of well above 80 per cent. The range of scores for Laura and “Alf” was a high of 80.368 per cent and a low of 76.596 per cent but included a “10” for transition in the final piaffe-passage tour on the centerline.

German veteran Hubertus Schmidt on Valentino G, a nine-year-old KWPN gelding by Ferro, was second with 73.447 pee cent.

The third placed ride by Matthias and the 11-year-old black stallion in only their second competition, scored 72.915 per cent the lowest ever awarded at Grand Prix to the horse that holds world record scores at all three Grand Prix levels when ridden by Edward Gal of The Netherlands.

However, Edward trained and competed the horse for four years through small tour to Grand Prix. Totilas was bought late last year by Paul Schockemöhle who then went into partnership with Ann Kathrin Linsenhoff, Matthias’s stepmother but also an Olympic gold medalist for Germany. The first competition was in Munich a week ago and the horse’s connections have made it clear that the competition goal is the Olympic Games in London next year.

With Edward Gal, the lowest Grand Prix score for Totilas since starting the big tour in June, 2009, was 76.808 per cent at the World Cup Final in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, in 2010 but the pair went on to win the freestyle and the title.

Matthias and Totilas were on track to score in the high 70s but mistakes in the the one-tempi changes which resulted in marks of 4s and 5s and the left pirouette which received 3s from all five judges pulled their scores way down.

The score of 72.915 per cent was made up of individual awards of 74.574, 72.766, 73.085, 71.702 and 72.447.

The Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday night was won by the Spanish combination of Juan Manuel Muñoz Diaz and Fuego de Cardenas with a score of 78.825 per cent with Laura Bechtolsheimer and Andretti H second on 77.925 per cent and Germany’s Uta Gräf on Le Noir third on 75.300 per cent.
