AARHUS, Denmark, Oct. 17, 2020–Cathrine Dufour posted a career high Grand Prix score Saturday when she rode Bohemian to victory at the World Cup event to kick off the Western European League series that has been decimated by the coronavirus pandemic causing cancellation of half the scheduled events.
Cathrine and the 10-year-old Westfalen gelding Bohemian, ranked No. 9 in the world, was awarded 83.435% to beat the pair’s previous best of 83.043% set a week before lockdowns imposed around the world in mid-March. The highest Grand Prix result on Cassidy, her 2016 Olympic mount and ranked fifth in the world, was 80.870% set in Stockholm last November.
Cathrine began competing Bohemian three years ago, won both the Grand Prix and Freestyle at this event a year ago, but has yet to ride the horse on a Danish international championship team as Cassidy remains a top horse.
Isabell Werth, competing here on world No. 7 Emilio in pursuit of a fourth straight World Cup title, placed second on 77.978%. Isabell took the world title in 2017, 2018 and 2019 on Weihegold OLD and needs to compete in two qualifier to go to the Final in Gothenburg, Sweden next April. Her campaign for an unprecedented straight fourth world championship was delayed by cancellation of the Final in Las Vegas in April this year.
Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on Zaire-E, ranked No. 11 behind TSF Dalera BB that stands third in the world, was third on 77.348%
Patrik Kittel, Sweden’s top ranked rider, and Delaunay, his 2017 European Championship and 2019 World Cup Final mount, scored 75.696% for fourth place.
Carina Cassøe Krüth and Heiline’s Danciera, nine-year-old Danish Warmblood mare, was awarded 74.304% for fifith.
Andreas Helgstrand and Fiontini scored 73.913% placed sixth. This was Andreas’s first international competition on the 10-year-old Danish Warmblood mare that his former stable rider, Severo Jurado Lopez of Spain, rode to the world titles at five, six and seven years of age and moved up Big Tour 1 1/2 years ago before forming his own training operation.
