29th October 2005 in the Holstenhalle, Neumünster, Germany

The honour of judging at the German National Championship!

My husband Paul had the honour this year of being invited to judge the German National Mare Championship in Neumünster, Germany.  Paul was invited by the Trakehner Verband to be one of the 4 judges to select the overall Champion and Reserve Champion mare from the winning mares of all the regional gradings that have taken place throughout the year.  This was a very proud moment for Paul who was also asked to present the rosette to the Champion Mare in front of the audience of over 3000 spectators!

There were 12 mares forward all who had scored over 55 points in their grading. 

The Champion mare selected was: Pr.St. Evviva by Kaiser Wilhelm owned by Jikkie Willemsen

Reserve Champion was GoodNight by Connery owned by Katrin & Hubertos Poll
