Under the floodlights of Hof Hasselmann in Hagen am Teutoburger Wald, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and TSF Dalera BB (v. Easy Game) are crowned this year’s European Champion in the Grand Prix Special. We were there to capture all the action of tonight, which we’ll share with you in this photo post!
Scoring 84,271% the Tokyo Olympics Gold medalist stayed well ahead of Isabell Werth and Weihegold Old (v. Blue HorsDon Schufro), who scored 81,702%. The bronze medal went to Cathrine Dufour and her Bohemian. With 81,079% it seemed anything more then a bronze medal wasn’t wished by the judges for the brilliant Danish rider and her 11-year-old Bordeaux-gelding.
The Brits ended in place four to six respectively. Charlotte Dujardin and Gio (v. Apache) lead her fellow country(wo)man with 79,787%. Charlotte Fry and Everdale (v. Lord Leatherdale) finished in fifth, followed by Carl Hester and En Vogue (v. Jazz).
Dinja van Liere in 9th place
The best Dutch combination ended in 9th place: Dinja van Liere and Haute Couture (v. Connaisseur) scored an impressive 75,699% meaning we’ll be seeing her back in Saturday’s Grand Prix Freestyle.
