Local heroine Lynn Greven is the best in the prize of federal promotion of children dressage sports

She had the shortest journey of all and the biggest smile on her face at the end: local hero Lynn Greven from Roetgen was crowned Children Champion 2023, presented by UVEX, by winning the prize of the federal promotion of children dressage sports.

In the end, Lynn Greven was almost speechless. No wonder, because the days leading up to the journey to the Aachen Soers were already very emotional for the 14-year-old. Her top horse Falcon HP, with whom she won the title at the Rhineland Championships this summer, fell ill shortly before the start of the show. Fortunately, the 10-year-old is now in top condition again, but as a result was no longer considered for a start at the Aachen Dressage Youngstars. The experienced 17-year-old Stedinger offspring Sergio, owned by her trainer Nathalie Braun, stepped into the breach. And he gave his young rider an early Christmas present in the arena of the Albert-Vahle-Arena: The judges awarded a whopping 77.834 percent for the harmonious round that the pair conjured up in the Aachen sand early on Sunday morning. "He simply gave everything for me," beamed Lynn Greven after her ride, which not only gave her victory in the prize of federal promotion of children dressage sports, but also the title of Indoor Champion. Did she feel a home advantage? "More like a bit of pressure," laughed the young rider from Roetgen, who was taking part in the Aachen Dressage Youngstars for the first time. "Being allowed to ride here is really something very special."

Norway's Astrid Olafsdottir finished second behind Lynn Greven with Myrstads Alexandro (75.648 percent), third place went to Switzerland's Malina Schneider with Darjeeling (74.329 percent).
