WELLINGTON, Florida, Jan. 9, 2018–World No. 1 Isabell Werth, the most decorated Olympic equestrian in history, will give a master class at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival on Thursday, Feb. 7, during the $216,700 CDI5* week.

Isabell, who has a passion for developing her horses from youngsters, is No. 1 with Weihegold OLD, 2017 and 2018 World Cup champion, No. 3 on Bella Rose that was the star of last September’s Tryon World Equestrian Games and No. 4 on Emilio.

She earned her first Olympic gold medal at the age of 23 and 26 years later the rider has taken the total to 10–six gold and four silver–as well 11 world championship medals including team and individual gold at Tryon, 21 European Championship medals and four World Cup titles.

Isabell has a son, Frederik, born in 2010.

In addition to her top three horses (Weihegold is a 14-year-old Oldenburg mare, Bella Rose is 15-year-old Westfalen mare and Emilio is 13-year-old Westfalen gelding), she plans to move Belantis, a gray 10-year-old German Sport Horse gelding, up to Grand Prix in 2019 and has the eight-year-old mare, Superb, to bring on this year.

Carl Hester of Great Britain hosted the first Global master class, in 2018 that was a big success.

Equestrian Sport Productions that organizes the Global circuit at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center said that times and ticket prices are expected to be announced within the next week.
