Last weekend, of course, a lot of attention was paid to the Longines Global Champions Tour of Madrid, but in addition to that, some four-star competitions also took place over the past few days. One of those competitions was the Longines PfingstTurnier in Wiesbaden, Germany, where German rider Anna Maria Kuhlmann and her 13-year-old grey mare Pegasus Deau Re Mi managed to produce some strong performances. Pegasus Deau Re Mi is a daughter of Deauville de la Vie and Corofino I and she was born to breeder Luc Tilleman of NV T&L as Deau Re Mi T&L Z.

Kuhlmann and Pegasus Deau Re Mi made a first appearance on Sunday when they took the top five in the 1.55m main class. After a clear basic round, they were one of five combinations who managed to advance to the jump-off, in which they eventually secured 5th place in the standings. But the successful duo held their own during the CSI4* GP on Monday afternoon. In a jump-off for which 5 combinations also managed to qualify, they again managed to keep 0 on the scoreboard and a finishing time of 57.53 seconds this time earned them2nd place in the standings.

Besides that2nd place for Kuhlmann and Pegasus Deau Re Mi, however, we also saw a second Zangersheide horse in the top five of the standings during the CSI4* GP. For this, Swedish rider Antonia Pettersson Häggström and the 13-year-old mare Zara de Laubry Z, a breeding product of Haras de Laubry who combined the blood of Zandor Z with that of Chin Chin. Pettersson Häggström and Zara de Laubry Z saw a fault in that jump-off, which finally put them in 5th place overall.

Those who could also look back on their competition with a satisfied feeling were German rider Johanna Beckmann and the 10-year-old chestnut mare Noblesse Z, a daughter of Nabab de Rêve and Drosselklang II bred in Germany by Ansgar Holtgers. Beckmann and Noblesse Z were good for 8th and 10th place respectively during the 1.40m classes on Thursday and Monday, but triumphed during the 1.40m class on Sunday. Then they were slightly ahead of the competition with a clear round in 65.75 seconds.

Another striking combination was Belgian rider Koen Vereecke with the 8-year-old grey gelding Chance van Paemel Z, a son of our grey stallion Cicero Z and Cento from the breeding farm of Stoeterij van Paemel BV. Vereecke and Chance van Paemel Z started their competition with a 9th place in the 1.40m class on Saturday and the following days a 6th place in the 1.40m class on Saturday and a great 4th place in the 1.45m class on Monday followed.

Furthermore, Vereecke's compatriot Karel Cox also managed to win two prizes with the 8-year-old gelding Iron Wish DH Z, a son of Iron Man Van de Padenborre and Lux Z bred by the Spits - Ceulemans family. Cox and Iron Wish DH Z jumped to 5th place in the 1.40m class on Sunday and a day later they managed to secure 7th place in the 1.45m class.

There were also 2 placings for German rider Stephi de Boer and the 10-year-old stallion Obvious And Pure Z, a son of Orlando and Contendro I bred in the Netherlands by S. Krol. The duo finished 7th in the 1.40m class on Sunday and on Monday they jumped to a handsome 4th place in the 1.50m accumulator class.

Finally, there were also 2 Zangersheide horses who managed to get a podium place during the opening day on Saturday. For example, during the 1.40m class, a 3rd place was reserved for Irish rider Billy Twomey with the 8-year-old mare Ace of Hearts Z (Action-Breaker x Indorado - F: Ryton Live Stock E.Machon P.ruck) and during the 1.50m main class, a handsome2nd place for German rider Daniel Deusser with the 10-year-old mare Ellabelle de Rie Z (Elvis Ter Putte x Tornedo FCS - F: Equi Consult VOF).
