NEUMÜNSTER, Germany, Feb. 17–Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill NRW revved up their game again scoring a personal best result and the highest dressage score in the world in 2013 at 87.800 per cent in winning the VR Classic World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday, the seventh of eight qualifying competitions leading to the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Final in Sweden in April.

Kristina Sprehe and Desperados FRH, team mates of Helen and Damon Hill at last summer’s Olympics, were runnersup to be at the top of the Western European League standings. And Isabell Werth and Don Johnson FRH placed third Sunday, the same order of finish as in the Grand Prix a day earlier when the scores for both Helen and Isabell were personal bests as they were in the Freestyle.

The top five placings–the three German combinations at the top and the two Danish Olympic partnerships of Anna Kasprzak and Donnperignon and Sidsel M. Johansen and Schianto–were all awarded better than 80 pwr cent in Sunday’s Freestyle.

Adelinde Cornelissen and Jerich Parzival, winner of the last two World Cup Finals, has fulfilled the requirements for her to defend the title in Gothenberg which is shaping up to be a shootout between the Dutch pair and Helen and Damon Hill. Helen was the reserve champion at the 2012 Final in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands.

“When we go to the Final we will give our very, very best, and if we keep this form it will be really good sport and very interesting!” Langehanenberg said after her victory that was the second sraight win in the series. She and Damon Hill beat Adelinde and Parzival at Amsterdam last month.

“We all have so many hopes and so many dreams but they don’t always come true. My dreams and my aims have always been clear, but I don’t let them put pressure on myself or on my horse. You just never know how it will work out. We stay focused and we work hard to achieve our goals, I am just very happy that we are succeeding right now.”

Italy’s Valentina Truppa is second in the standings, a spot ahead of Helen while Sweden’s top partnership of Tinne Vilhelmsson-Silfvén who is competing in Florida and posted a personal best result in the Grand Prix Special with Don Auriello this weekend, is in fourth place and can count on the support of the home crowd at the Final.

The previous best for Helen and the 13-year-old Westfalen stallion (Donnerhall x Romanze x Rubenstein I) was 86.775 per cent at the Stuttgart World Cup event last November.

The plans for Isabell Werth are under a cloud because of a probe by the German national federation into the detection of medication in El Santo NRW, and that is normally used to treat stomach ulcers but is not allowed in competition. The German federation is continuing an investigation of the case.
