Posted by By at 30 October, at 22 : 07 PM Print

Equita Lyon’s stellar line-up at the FEI World Cup Dressage did not disappoint, with the sport’s heavyweights dancing their way to top scores in the Eurexpo arena on October 27 and 28.  Germany’s Isabell Werth’s career best score of 90.09% in the Kur secured her the win in the second leg of World Cup Dressage’s Western European League.  The Team Gold and Individual silver medalist was seemingly impressed by her own excellence with the 11-year-old Weihegold Old.  Britian’s Carl Hester and Olympic mount Nip Tuck trailed Werth by over 5 percentage points for second place, with 85.02%, while The Netherlands’ Hans Peter Minderhoud and Johnson rounded out the top three with an 80.22%.  Germany’s Jessica von Bredow-Werndl with Zaire-E and Fabienne Lutkemeier with D’Agostino finished fourth and fifth, while Sweden’s Patrick Kittel and Deja were sixth after leading the class until just halfway through the class.

Screen Shot 2016-10-31 at 5.25.54 PMGermany has been without a doubt the leading nation in world dressage for several decades. Incredibly, the German team has won no less than eight championship titles at the last nine Olympic Games! Ever since Los Angeles in 1984, Die Mannschaft has overwhelmingly dominated the discipline. Well, almost. Just one other country has had a look in: the British team managed to win once on their home ground in London in 2012. The name that stands out in this multiple gold medal winning German team, a legend who has made a huge contribution to the best moments of German equestrianism: Werth, who this summer in Rio became the rider to have won the most medals in Olympic history. Five team titles with three different horses, one individual title, four silver medals, currently ranked second in the world, and a staunch mainstay of the Lyon leg of the FEI Dressage World Cup.

Dressage enjoys special treatment in Lyon: in order to attract a maximum number of spectators and encourage as many people as possible to discover this demanding sport, which engendered all the other equestrian disciplines, the organizer decided to waive admission to the stands for holders of an entrance ticket to the Lyon equestrian exhibition. In 2015, this enabled 7,000 people to attend the Grand Prix Freestyle.
