Beautiful arena in Geneva today for the CDI5 Grand Prix class with another day of outstanding top sport.
From the start list it looked like a German combination for the winner spot, but quite surprisingly Isabell Werth with Emilio went into the 2nd place after 11 year old mare TSF Dalera BB with Jessica von Bredow-Werndl in the saddle.
Delera and Jessica also were part of the gold winning team in Tryon, even though Delera first made her international debut back in March this year, and has not done any indoor international shows since.
Personal Best with an outstanding performance and a level telling +80% after the trot tour, going down to 77% after the walk tour, as the collected walk becomes a bit unbalanced, super well managed canter tour where Jessica just rides forward to eliminate the small tensions, and at the same time shows super nice series, supple and well performed pirouettes, lovely balance and control back to trot at M and super final centerline. Fully deserved victory.
At the same time the “Queen” Isabell Werth showed a smooth and effortless test with Emilio, but today just into 2nd place.
