Vitalis and Jorst Complete Final Test at 2013 FEI World Breeding Championships for Dressage Young Horses

RELEASE: August 11, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Helen Murray

Verden, Germany- Charlotte Jorst and Vitalis finished a respectable 13th on Sunday in the Final of the six-year-old division at the FEI World Breeding Championships for Dressage Young Horses. The Championship held annually hosts the world’s best up-and-coming dressage talents and often serves as a preview for horses that will represent their countries on the international stage.

Skagen Holding’s Vitalis (Vivaldi x Tolivia/Donnerschwee) was a bit unsettled in Verden’s championship atmosphere on Sunday, but Jorst (Reno, NV) was able to still show quality work. The Dutch Warmblood stallion scored 7.0, 8.5, and 8.2 for his walk, trot, and canter gaits, respectively. His excitement was reflected in the rideability score of 6.7 but the stallion was still rewarded with a 7.8 for his overall impression.

The pair finished Sunday with a score of 7.64.

“Unfortunately Vitalis got pretty excited in the electric atmosphere of the Finals today. Charlotte held her composure and improved her canter score from the first day, but unfortunately the excitement caused some tension in the flying changes,” said USEF Young Horse Dressage Coach Scott Hassler. “Overall, Charlotte and Vitalis represented us very well and generated a lot of positive talk here among trainers, riders, and officials. They are definitely a pair expected to return to the international scene! Charlotte and her trainer, VolkerBrommann were a total pleasure with; it was great team work.”

The winner of Sunday’s Six-Year-Old Final was Germany’s Oldenburg gelding Sa Coeur and Eva Moller with an overall score of 9.04.
