Nadine Krause has been chosen as the new rider of Jessica Krieg's 8-year old palomino stallion Danilo (by Dornik B x Power Boy). The stallion is bred and owned by Werner Steinheuer from Marl-Polsum, Germany.
Danilo was a fixed member of the German Pony Team at the 2010 and 2011 European Pony Championships. In 2010 at the Europeans in Bishop Burton he won team silver, individual test gold and kur bronze. At the 2011 Europeans in Jaszkowo, Poland, Danilo won team gold and kur bronze. He is one of Europe's highest scoring FEI ponies at the moment.
Danilo's new rider is Nadine Krause, a cousin of German pony rider Semmieke Rothenberger. The Bad Homburg based Krause will get the ride on the palomino as of September 2011 and Stefanie Meyer-Biss will remain to be the pony's trainer.
This year Nadine Krause has already been competing three other FEI ponies: Going East, Di Baggio and Fredriksbergs Mozart.Source: Eurodressage
