SALZBURG, Austria, Dec. 9, 2018–Kristy Oatley and her “true blue partner” du Soleil set an Australian Grand Prix Freestyle record in World Cup competition Sunday, the second time this year the Olympic and World Games duo have posted a new musical performance high mark.

Kristy and 14-year-old Hanoverian gelding she rates her best ever horse were awarded 79.330 per cent for a new Australian record, eclipsing the previous best of 78.130 per cent the pair scored in another World Cup event seven weeks ago. That in turn broke the decade-old mark of 77.650 per cent set by the four-time Olympian on Quando Quando before the 2008 Beijing Games.

The pair also hold the Aussie Grand Prix Special record of 74.605 per cent set at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina in September. Her cousin, fellow Australian Olympian Lyndal Oatley also based in Germany with her Swedish Olympic rider husband, Patrik Kittel, holds the Australian Grand Prix record of 72.800 per cent, logged on Sandro Boy three years ago.

Kristy, based in Germany, and du Soleil are the highest ranked Australian combination at No. 44 in the world. The performance of the team from Down Under at Tryon qualified Australia for a start at the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.

“Düse,” as she calls du Soleil, “was amazing” and scored high enough to place fourth despite cantering in the right half pass that the 40-year-old rider put down to her mistake.

“He just wants to go out there and give his all every time,” Kristy texted dressage-news.com. “A true blue partner!!!”

Du Soleil has, she said, “still lots more left in there.” Though she and Ton de Ridder, the former Australian team coach that she works with have not yet decided on the next competition.

In addition to the 2016 Olympics and the 2018 World Equestrian Games, Kristy and du Soleil competed at the 2017 World Cup Final in Omaha.

Kristy first competed du Soleil at small tour in 2015 then moved up to Grand Prix later the same year.

“I rate him as my best,” she said.

But added, “I just wish I could have Bolero and Quando again today with the knowledge I have now!”

She competed Quando Quando in the 2006 World Equestrian Games and the 2008 Olympics and Bolero was her mount in the open European Championships in Hickstead, England in 2003.

Benjamin Werndl & Daily Mirror Win Salzburg World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle on Another Personal Best Score

Benjamin Werndl and Daily Mirror. File photo. © Ken Braddick/dressage-news.com

SALZBURG, Austria, Dec. 9, 2018–Benjamin Werndl rode Daily Mirror to a personal best score to capture the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday to move into a tie with fellow German Dorothee Schneider atop the Western European League rankings for an invitation to the championship final next April.

Benjamin and the 14-year-old Westfalen gelding scored 80.790 per cent for the victory to eclipse their previous best of 80.340 per cent set last month. The pair also posted a personal best in the Grand Prix Saturday.

“This horse is a gift,” he said. “I’m having an unbelievable trip with him, he’s developed so much over the last few months and I can’t find the right words to describe how much it means to me.”

There was so much more potential in Daily Mirror, he said, “and now my job is to find out how to bring it out. He had a break of two years before he came to us a couple of years ago, so he still feels a bit like a young horse building up experience, and I really wasn’t expecting him to be so cool in this arena today–he’s just the perfect gentleman.”

Benjamin and his sister, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, both were undefeated at different shows this week–Benjamin on Daily Mirror here in the fifth World Cup event of the 2018/19 season and Jessica on TSF Dalera BB at the CDI5* in Geneva. As Young Riders in 2004, the two took silver at the European Championships.

Sweden’s Patrik Kittel riding Delatio in only the second show for the pair placed second on 80.010 per cent to move up to fifth in the Western European standings as the veteran of three Olympics and three World Equestrian Games pursues a start at the final in Gothenburg, Sweden in April that would be his seventh World Cup start. The only other competition for Patrik and Delatio, 14-year-old Hanoverian stallion, was the World Cup event in Lyon, France.

Dorothee Schneider and Faustus, competing in only their second freestyle since starting Big Tour nine months ago, also logged a personal best of 79.730 per cent.

Kristy Oatley and Du Soleil placed fourth on 79.330 per cent, an Australian record freestyle score, and beating their previous recordbeating result of 78.130 per cent in October.

The next Western European World Cup event is scheduled for London Olympia Dec. 17-18.

Germany’s Jessica von Bredow-Werndl & Dalera Win Geneva CDI5* Grand Prix Freestyle, Beating Isabell Werth & Emilio for 2nd Day

Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on TSF Dalera BB. File photo. © 2018 Ken Braddick/dressage-news.com

GENEVA, Dec. 7, 2018–Germany’s Jessica von Bredow-Werndl performed a triumphant Grand Prix Freestyle on TSF Dalera BB, beating team mate Isabell Werth on her world No. 4 ranked Emilio on Friday night for the second victory at the CHI Geneva CDI5*.

Jessica and the 11-year-old Trakehner mare scored 84.075 per cent in their first competition since taking World Equestrian Games team gold in Tryon in September.

This was also the pair’s first completed Big Tour musical performance; in their only previous freestyle in April, a month after starting top sport, the pair were eliminated.

However, the 32-year-old Jessica and Dalera (Easy Game x Handryk) won the Grand Prix Thursday on a personal best 79.217 per cent then came back Friday to take the freestyle.

Jessica is best known for competing Unee BB in four World Cup Finals–placing third at three–as well as on the German bronze medal team at the 2015 European Championships. Both Unee and Dalera are owned by Beatrice A. Bürchler-Keller of Switzerland.

Isabell Werth and Emilio, a 12-year-old Westfalen gelding on which she is ranked No. 4 in the world, was awarded 83.900 mount in their 17th start, including 11 victories, for the year.

Three of the five judges placed Jessica and Dalera first, and two gave the nod to Isabell and Emilio.

The Netherlands Anne Meulendijks and MDH Avanti placed third on 76.300 per cent.

Victoria Max-Theurer and Blind Date won the Grand Prix Special, the only victory for the year for Austria’s four-time Olympian and the 16-year-old Hanoverian mare.

The duo scored 72.00 per cent for the win, with France’s Bertrand Liegard on Star Wars second on 68.809 per cent and the Swiss World Games team combination of Estelle Wettstein and West Side Story third on 68.660 per cent.
