Extravagant choreographies, sweeping melodies and great emotions got the Wiener Neustädter audience to see in the grand finale, the Grand Prix Freestyle in the price of Toyota Frey.
The grand finale of this year's Easter CDI, the Grand Prix Freestyle, attracted many spectators to the Lake Arena in Wiener Neustadt. They all watched the creative and impressive choreographies of the best of the best.
Nomen est omen. This motto was also true in the price of Toyota Frey. The dark-brown Oldenburger, who hears to the name Der Hit, landed under Benjamin Werndl in the freestyle a real hit. To classical sounds the duo brought true international flair in the arena and was abdicated with 73,650% .

Many thought that they had already seen the victory couple. Until this week's outstanding German junior rider Lisa-Maria Klössinger entered the arena. She had set the tone with FBW Daktari yesterday in Grand Prix Tour B. Today she was waiting with a technically exceedingly demanding and imaginative choreography that contained difficult and at the same time original elements. For the well-known song "Try it with cosiness" she started right after the greeting with a gallop pirouette, let two-change smoothly flow in one changes and took a gallopirouette sent - with gathered step before and strong step after - in the step work. With this extravagant freestyle and the high-profile implementation the victory was more than earned. The judge quorum honors the performance with 76.775%.

In third place was the Luxemburgish Sascha Schulz with his impressive Lusitano stallion Dragao. With David Guetta hits they brought a celebratory mood into the hall.

Once again, the Upper Austrian Ulrike Prunthaller, who presented her tried-and-tested free style of the previous year with Bartlgut's Duccio, provided the best Austrian result. 69.250% were finally booked, which put the two in fifth place. Timna Zach and Simply Red rode to sixth with 69.175%.
