Versatility – The last championship took place in 2023, with title results at the World Championship for Young Cross-Country Horses. Barrington Alice is the new champion of six-year-old young horses under Izzy Taylor (GBR). In the seven-year-old category, the title remained in host country France. Leah Siegel (Upper Austria) and Sternenzaberin unfortunately slipped back from an excellent tenth place after dressage and cross-country to 29th with several jumping drops.
Yesterday (October 22nd) the shoot jumping results were thrown back together. Earlier, ten of the top twelve pairs of six-year-old cross-country horses were able to maintain their result after the dressage without any hurdles or time faults. Our red-white-red starter pair of Lea Siegel (Upper Austria) and Drekner mare Sternenzaberin also failed to score on the cross-country course and were in a sensational tenth place (30.3 FP) before the jumping course. Unfortunately, a total of four poles fell and both of them were awarded a total of 16 penalty points at the end of the dressage. With a total score of 46.3 minus points, it was a 29th-place finish for the reigning state champion and his star wizard.

Leaders in dressage and cross-country had a similar fate: Molly Summerland (GBR) and Mojo had to accept two drops in the final jumping, so both fell back to ninth place. The six-year-old title went to fellow countryman Izzy Taylor (GBR) and Sevin Z daughter Barrington Alice (26.9 fb.). Silver went to the host country: Stéphane Landois (FRA) and Hermes du Gevaton improved from fifth to second place in the jumping without any faults (27.7 FP.). Jangerscheid mare Cooley on Ice and Amanda Goldsbury (AUS) completed the podium at this World Championship (28.8 FP.).
