No jumping this afternoon in Salzburg, but dressage. Germany took home the win, as Isabell Werth and Emilio were the only combination to pass the 85%.
1. Isabell Werth - Emilio
2. Benjamin Werndl - Daily Mirror
3. Victoria Max-Theurer - Benaglio
Isabell Werth and her gelding Emilio (by Ehrenpreis) are placed first by four of the five members of the international judges. She has a score of a whopping 85.905% and is the only rider to pass 85%. Benjamin Werndl however, was close by. Again four of the five judges gave them their final ranking and they scored 84.705%, placing Werndl and Daily Mirror (by Damon Hill) second.
Compatriots Werth and Werndl left a big gap between them and the other competitors. First runner-up to Werndl is Victoria Max-Theurer and Benaglio (by Breitling W). Their score of 78.525% takes home a bronze medal, or better, leaves the bronze medal in Austria.
It was nearly no medal for Austria though, as Helen Langehanenberg almost came in third. But she was 0.375% short, scoring 78.150% Langehanenberg and Anabelle (by Conteur) therefore are number four in the ranking. Closing the top five ar Morgan Barbancon and Sir Donnerhal (by Sandro Hit), scoring 77.605%
