In the World Cup Grand Prix dressage presented by VriendenLoterij the dressage queen Isabell Werth came, saw and conquered with the 15-year-old black mare Weihegold OLD (f. Blue Hors Don Schufro) at Jumping Amsterdam. Werth is the boss of the strong competition and rode the Oldenburger to a score of 83.565%. Charlotte Dujardin was really close to Werths with the 11-year-old Hanoverian Mount St John Freestyle (f. Fidermark), but her score of 81.957% was not enough for the victory. Emmelie Scholtens completed the podium and defeated among others Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Helen Langehanenberg. Scholtens’ class with Desperado N.O.P. was rated 77.870%.
Werth: ”My class went very well and I am very satisfied, because the class was clear. She was very motivated. At the beginning the mare was a bit fresh, so I had to be careful. She showed a good passage, piaff and pirouettes”.
Honest and focused mare
“Weihegold is an honest and focused mare. What the horse has already accomplished in his life is unbelievable. It started with the young horses and then followed the Bundeschampionat, the Louisdor Preis and the Grand Prix. She has already won a lot and remains motivated and enjoys her work,” says Werth.
”I’m lucky to have several Grand Prix horses at my disposal. I am very happy to have several horses running at the highest level. This is a very comfortable position.”
“The public’s mood is great.
The competition Jumping Amsterdam is great and super for the horses. The mood of the public is great. I give a compliment to the organization for the beautiful event.”
