In fourth place in 2019 and 2021, she narrowly missed the podium twice, this year Tina Deuerer was unscathed in Balve.
The 43-year-old from Bruchsal in Baden-Württemberg won the Amazon title at the German Championships in Balve on the 13-year-old Hanoverian stallion Clueso. Last year’s winner Sophie Hinners was sixth in the saddle of Million Dollar.
The starting field in Balve also included world champion Simone Blum, who took sixth place with the only ten-year-old Diachacco, level with Hinners.
In 2016, Blum won the Amazon classification in Balve with her miracle mare Alice and from there started a triumphal procession that culminated in winning the 2018 World Championship title in Tryon.
