The pair won the Grand Prix Friday on a score of more than 80%, the fourth horse–and all currently being competed by Isabell–that the German superstar has ridden to at least 80%. The others are Bella Rose, her world No., Weihegold OLD at No. 2 and Emilio standing ninth in the world.

The duo competed at the 2016 European Young Rider Championships and three years later on the Swiss team at the senior Europeans.
