Isabelle Wert traditionally dominates the Schleierhalle, Philipp Weishaupt dominates the €100,000 showjumping event with flair and secures the German Masters title in Stuttgart.
The most successful dressage of all time is set to continue to extend his winning streak at the Schleierhalle German Masters. Between 1996 and 2018, Isabelle Werth won the so-called Freestyle Tour for points nine times with six different horses. World Championship. He even won fifteen times between 1996 and 2018, again with six different horses, on the Classic Tour for the coveted title of German Master.
At the 36th Neckar International Horse Show, the 53-year-old kicked off Friday with a clear Grand Prix win. His ride on the twelve-year-old stallion Quantaz scored a fine 77.217 percentage points. The prize money was 4000 euros. Ingrid Klimke from Münster and her stallion Franciscus are in second place with 74.3 points. Olympic champion Jessica von Bredow-Werndl from Tokyo saddled not her Trakehner mare Dalera but “only” her second horse, the 13-year-old Hanoverian Ferdinand, and only finished seventh. There is no duel between him and Isabel Vert. Werth now has the chance to win four more times in Stuttgart from four starts.
Weishaupt won on the fly
The final of the German Masters title, which has been held since 1987 and carries €100,000 in prize money, was won by Philipp Weishaupt on the nine-year-old gelding Krokant from the stables of Ludger Beerbaum in Riesenbeck in a jump-off with five competitors. Second place was sensationally won by the young rider Sophie Hieners on the nine-year-old gelding Grafik, owned by Marbach’s main and state stud farm on the Swabian Jura.
