This amazing mare was the oldest horse in the entire show. Born 1998, Daria won a lot of high level classes with her rider Michael Kölz. Even though she’s 19 now, she jumped 2 clear rounds in the GP in an amazing time. Her rider decided that she deserves to be retired after the show - they got an incredible second place. Such a fit old girl, she really deserves living in the pasture now!

Happy retirement, Daria!

Felix Haßmann realized his winning mount Cayenne wasn’t okay during the prize giving (he was sweating like hell and kinda dizzy cause it was too hot, especially with the coolers he had on), so he decided to leave the arena with Cayenne. Another rider, Harm Lahde, saw it and gave him his horse Opus Magnum, so Felix still had the chance to ride the victory lap while his groom was taking care of Cayenne, cooling him down. Such a great gesture!
