MECHELEN, Belgium, Dec. 26–Isabell Werth rode Warum Nicht FRH on her return to top competition, in the Grand Prix at the World Cup qualifier in Mechelen on Saturday, to finish third behind Adelinde Cornelissen and Parzival.

Isabell finished third on her 2007 World Cup champion mount that she rode just two months after giving birth to a baby boy, Frederik, and three days afer her suspension from competition for six months.

Adelinde and Parzival, who won this event a year ago, were placed first by all five judges for a score of 78.680 per cent. The pair finished at the top of the West European League but did not compete at the Las 2009 Vegas Finals when Parzival went lame.

Her Dutch compatriot, Imke Schellekens-Bartels on Hunter Douglas Sunrise, finished second on 72.170 per cent. The pair won the World Cup event in Frankfurt, Germany, just a week ago.

Isabell posted a score of 71.702 per cent to finish third in her first international competition since Lingen, Germany almost seven months ago.

Adelinde said that Parzival was “much better” than a week ago, more rideable, when the combination finished second to Edward Gal and Moorlands Totilas in London last week.

For Isabell, it was her first start in Mechelen and although she is still getting back into the rhythm of competition it turned out “better than expected.”

She took the blame for mistakes, saying that she had stopped riding for a month–two weeks before the birth of her child at the end of October and two weeks afterward. During that time, her stable rider and her “fantastic team” took over the horses.

Even so, Isabell said, she found it difficult not riding, “it is an addicition.”

Christmas was very important, she said. so she was going to her hotel for a delayed celebration with her family and plans to celebrate further at home after the competition.

Isabell was suspended for six months after discovery of traces of a banned substance in a small tour horse at a German national show. The suspension was doubled to 12 months for German team events.

The Grand Prix Kür or musical freestyle for which qualification points will be awarded is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, and will be the sixth event in the nine-show West European League series.

The final will be held in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands, at the end of March.
