Diana Porsche (S) achieves the first victory for Austria!

Today the CDIU25 participants contested the big finale of Dressage International at the GLOCK HORSE PERFORMANCE CENTER. Twelve times the audience had the chance to cheer along with the 16 to 25-year-old athletes in the Grand Prix till a winner emerged, namely 19-year-old Diana Porsche from Salzburg, happily an Austrian.

With her twelve-year-old Oldenburg horse Di Sandro, whom she has been riding only since December last year, Diana Porsche showed a solid test. Her 68.116 % earned her victory and one of the beautiful winner’s trophies. "I have always wanted to ride here, but now actually winning here is a dream come true today!”, said Diana Porsche who, in 2014 in Salzburg, was decorated ‘Rookie of the Year 2014’, before she entered the lap of honour passionately cheered by her fan club.

Winning yesterday, today achieving second and therefore highly successful too was Dinja van Liere (NED). With 17-year-old Hexagon's Roumanda she was given 67.233 % today. Jessica Neuhauser (SUI) represented Switzerland, coming third with her Ferrero Kiss and 66.442 % in the CDIU25 Grand Prix.
