ZAKRZÓW, Poland, Oct. 24, 2021–Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and Ferdinand BB won the World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle Sunday to kick off the German rider’s campaign for a start in the championship Final next April.

Jessica and the 12-year-old Hanoverian gelding scored 78.780% in only the second Big Tour Freestyle for the world No. 1 on her double Olympic gold medal mount TSF Dalera BB.

Jessica who has been partnered with Ferdinand since the horse was young including competing in the World Young Horse Championships at the age of five, began international Grand Prix in January.

Rose competed Herzkoenig NRW here to win the pony CDI team and individual competitions and place second in the freestyle.
