GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Feb. 28, 2015–Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Unee BB won the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Saturday to cement the German pair’s top ranking in Western Europe for the Final in Las Vegas.

Jessica, German team reserve with Unee BB at last year’s World Games and who celebrated her 29th birthday earlier this month, scored 81.650 per cent and placed first by all five judges.

Isabell Werth on El Santo NRW placed second on 79.900 per cent and will be lo0oking to return to Las Vegas where the German superstar won the World Cup title in 2007. Edward Gal of the Netherlands on Glock’s Voice was third on 78.100 per cent.

Jessica and the 14-year-old KWPN stallion won the Grand Prix a day earlier in what was the eighth of nine World Cup events in Western Europe leading to the Final in America in mid-April.

“It’s super, I’m so happy, it’s hard to find the words, I want to go out and do it again,” Jessica said after the win.

“There were many good competitors here, and in the Grand Prix and Freestyle a lot depends on your communication with your horse and your daily relationship. My horse was completely with me.

“This was my best ride, we were really consistent, and when your horse is like that you can ask for a little more. He always wants to do a good job, and I’m also excited because I feel we have some more potential to improve.”

Jessica has never been to Las Vegas and Unee has never flown before but the rider has no concerns about the transatlantic travel.

“I want to take him, he’s never flown before but he’s a very cool boy,” she said.

“I’ve never been to Las Vegas, so I’m really excited and I know BB will like it because he’s a real showman.”

Isabell Werth, whose prospects for a start in the World Cup Final this season have sometimes appeared in doubt, was more than pleased with her result.

“My horse was full of power today but we also had good collection and no mistakes. It was much better than yesterday, and now I feel really ready for Las Vegas.”

The final WEL qualifier is scheduled for ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands in mid-March.

The North American League of Canada and the United States will be the only one of four geographic regions with events remaining for the Las Vegas Final of the annual world individual dressage title and decided by the Freestyle.
