Isabell and the 15-year-old Oldenburg mare, ranked No. 2 in the world, were awarded 81.600% before hundreds of spectators that were allowed into the show grounds in an easing of coronavirus restrictions that had delayed these championships for four months.
Jessica and the 13-year Trakehner mare, elevated to No. 3 in the world this month, scored 81.340%. Dorothee Schneider and Faustus placed third on 78.360%.
