Three-time German Champion, three-time European Champion, number one in the world ranking list and now two-time winner in Aachen: As in 2019, Rose Oatley won the Prize of the BFT Cognos GmbH outright. As such the 14-year-old, who competes for PS Granderheide, also won the Prize of FamilyKlaus Peters and now carries the title Indoor Champion 2021. On Sunday, she rode to victory with her gelding Daddy Moon on a score of 84.942 percent, ahead of Julie Sofie Schmitz-Heinen (Carleo Go 3/80.850) and Mia Allegra Lohe with Tovdal's Golden Future Imperial (80.417). Rose is the daughter of Kristy Oatley – a dressage rider who has already represented Australia at four Olympic Games. The mother and daughter are a good team, even if Rose gave a diplomatic answer when asked if her mum’s comments are sometimes too critical: “She has something to say about everything,” she grinned.
