Dorothee Schneider and Showtime FRH, part of the gold medal winning German team at the Rio Olympics, have returned to competition in fine style, winning both the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special at the Munich Indoor CDI4*.

The pair scored 79.280% to win the Grand Prix (GP Special qualifying class), with German eventing star Ingrid Klimke and SAP Geraldine finishing second on 72.520%. Ingrid competed in the Grand Prix (Freestyle qualifying class) a day earlier, winning with Franziskus on 71.620%. The pair went on to win the GP Freestyle on 75.800%. The daughter of Dr Reiner Klimke has a goal of representing her country at Olympic level in dressage; she is already a five-time Olympian in the discipline of eventing.
