Showtime will not compete in the Grand Prix

I will not be competing together with my successful horse Showtime FRH at the CHIO Aachen. After our gold medal at the German Championships, we were supposed to compete in the CDI4* Tour in Aachen. However, after training on site, I decided together with our team management not to send "Showi" into the competition. We had made a great comeback at the German Championships in Balve. There Showi had competed again for the first time after a nine-month break. He won the Grand Prix and the Special, but did not compete in the Freestyle, as he was still in the build-up phase. Showi passed the vet check in Aachen on Tuesday without any complaints, but in the final training session he did not present himself as fresh as he had recently shown at the German Championships and also in training at home. Therefore, in consultation with the team management, I decided not to compete with him in the Grand Prix today, Wednesday. For Showtime, this also means that he will not be competing at the World Championships in Denmark from 6 to 14 August. "The way to the Championships team is via three competitions in Balve and a start at the CHIO Aachen. It is bitter to have to do without such a strong pair," explained Klaus Roeser, Chairman of the DOKR Dressage Committee.
