Von Bredow-Werndl defeats Werth in Neumünster

Jessica von Bredow-Werndl pipped compatriot and reigning series champion Isabell Werth at the ninth leg of the FEI Dressage World Cup™ 2019/2020 Western European League in Neumünster, Germany today where host nation riders claimed the top four places.

Going third from last in the 15-strong field, von Bredow-Werndl landed a big score of 89.640 with the 13-year-old mare TSF Dalera BB with which she collected team gold at the FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2018 in Tryon, USA and both team gold and individual Freestyle bronze at last summer’s FEI European Championships in Rotterdam (NED).

And although Werth and the 14-year-old Emilio gave it their best shot, their final tally of 88.450 was only good enough for runner-up spot ahead of compatriots Helen Langehanenberg and Damsey FRH in third while von Bredow-Werndl’s brother, Benjamin Werndl, slotted into fourth when last to go with Famoso OLD.

Today’s result promotes Jessica to pole position on the Western European League leaderboard from which the top nine will qualify for the FEI Dressage World Cup™ Final in Las Vegas (USA) in April where Werth will be bidding to become the first-ever rider to win four FEI Dressage World Cup™ titles in a row. 

There are two further legs of the league yet to run, at Gothenburg (SWE) next weekend and ’s-Hertogenbosch (NED) on 14 March where von Bredow-Werndl will compete her other top ride, Zaire.
