BALVE, Germany, June 17–Totilas was ridden by Matthias Alexander Rath to victory in the German Championship Grand Prix Friday, posting their first Grand Prix score above 81 per cent in the third straight week of competition for the pair.

Matthias and the 11-year-old KWPN black stallion that have been partnered for six months since being bought by Paul Schockemöhle and Ann-Kathrin Linsenhoff for Germany scored 81.021 per cent. Matthias’s three team mate riders from the World Equestrian Games last year filled the next three places in the dressage championships at the historic Wocklum Castle in Balve.

Isabell Werth on her still developing El Santo NRW, a 10-year-old Rheinlander gelding, was second on 79.574 per cent, Christoph Koschel and Donnperignon was second on 76.638 per cent and Anabel Balkenol on Dablino placed third on 76.468 per cent. For Germany in Kentucky last year, Matthias rode Sterntaler-UNICEF and Isabell Warum Nicht FRH on whom she finished sixth in this Grand Prix. Christoph and Anabel were partnered with the same horses.

The results showed a remarkable resurgence in German dressage–even if these were German championships with all German judges–just two months before the highly competitive European Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. At the Europeans two years ago, Germany with Isabell pregnant and absent while suspended for a horse drug offense won bronze behind a Totilas-led Dutch team and the silver medal-winning British squad. The results were the same at the world championships in 2010.

Matthias and Totilas competed in their first show at Munich just two weeks ago and at Wiesbaden last week.

Friday’s performance contained fewer errors before a stadium that was only half-full compared with the standing room only crowds of the previous two shows. An error occurred in the one-tempi changes for the second straight Grand Prix.

Matthias, aged 26, described the horse’s uncharacteristic unruly behavior in Wiesbaden as “adolescent.”

The two earlier shows were, he said, “a high learning factor” that “have taught us much for our way forward.”
