CAPPELN, Germany, Aug. 10, 2018–Isabell Werth rode Bella Rose to victory in the CDI4* Grand Prix Friday, with the highest score of the pair’s three shows since returning from almost four years out of the competition arena.

Isabell and the 14-year-old Westfalen mare were awarded 79.500 per cent–including two marks of 80 per cent–in the campaign to be selected for Germany’s team for the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina a month’s time.

Bella Rose was 10 years old and placed second individually in the Grand Prix to lead Germany to team gold at the 2010 World Games in Normandy. Three months later, a recurring injury that proved difficult to source and repair kept the mare out of competition until six weeks ago.

Isabell has left no doubt she would prefer to ride  Bella Rose at Tryon as the horse she regards as her best ever in a career that includes 10 Olympic medals, more than any other equestrian in history.

Germany delayed announcing its WEG team after some top prospects, including Sönke Rothenberger on Cosmo and Showtime ridden by Dorothee Schneider were on the injury list after Aachen two weeks ago. The first flights of horses from Europe for Tryon are scheduled in about three weeks to give them time for familiarization before the start of dressage competition Sept. 12.

Lara Butler on Rubin al Asad, named to Great Britain’s short list squad for Tryon, was second on 71.326 per cent.

The Netherlands’ Marlies van Baalen on Ben Johnson was third on 70.609 per cent.
