BALVE, Germany, June 7–Helen Langehanenberg rode Damon Hill NRW to victory in the Grand Prix Friday in kicking off their quest to repeat as German champions while Isabell Werth and Don Johnson FRH continued to show improvement to be runnerup.

Helen and the 13-year-old Westfalen stallion (Donnerhall x Rubinstein I) that was the highest placed German combination at last summer’s Olympics, scored 80.553 per cent from the all-German five-judge panel.

Isabell and Don Johnson, 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding, were scored at 78.340 per cent while Anabel Balkenhol and Dablino FRH that were also on the 2012 Olympic squad were third on 76.000 per cent.

Helen and Damon Hill won the World Cup title in April and the pair is ranked No. 2 in the world.

These competition at the Balve Optimum for the 10th time are mandatory for riders seeking to be on the German team at the European Championships in Denmark late August.

Noticeably absent was Totilas and his rider, Matthias Alexander Rath, whose performance here a year ago was the last public competition for the pair.

A viral infection knocked Matthias out of contention for a place on Germany’s Olympic team, the pair has been dropped from the elite German squads and is no longer amog the 640 combinations on the International Equestrian Federation’s world rankings.

The 13-year=old KWPN back stallion (Gribaldi x Glendale) has suffered a series of injuries since Matthias took over the ride from Edward Gal of the Netherlands after sweeping the team and individual medals at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky in 2010.

In 13 starts at five official international competitions from Munich in June 2011 to Hagen in May 2012, the posted eight wins and five other placing. The only championship Matthias and Totilas participated in was the Europeans in Rotterdam in 2011.

Since then, Matthias, the stepson of Ann-Katrin Linsenhof who owns the horse with Paul Schockemöhle of Performance Sales International, has switched training to former Dutch coach Sjef Janssen from his father, Klaus Martin Rath. He has repeated that the long term goal with Totilas is the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
