When it comes to big, international show venues, Isabell Werth has seen them all. The reigning dressage world champion both individual and with the German team, is one of the most experienced and most winning dressage riders over the years, and she is happy and impressed with the venue at Herning2022: 

“It is really impressive to see it all – the village, the stadium, the grounds and the stable – there is just so much space for all of us. It is really super! Big compliments”, says Werth when asked about her impression from the first couple of days in Herning. 

In fact, in Isabell Werth’s opinion, next to Aachen 2006, Herning2022 is the best world championship ever. And this is really high praise coming from Werth, who on home turf in Aachen won both individual and team gold. 

For this championship, Isabell Werth is competing on Quantaz DSP and she explains that her horse has also settled well in Herning: 

“He is really fine, and I hope we can bring it the ring. He has been super relaxed and that is the most important thing for me – keeping him relaxed and focused. So, I am really pleased right now.” 

Besides Isabell Werth, the Team Germany consists of Ingrid Klimke/Franziskus, Benjamin Werndl/Famoso OLD and Frederic Wandres on Duke of Britain FRH.  

Ingrid Klimke and Benjamin Werndl rode in the Team Competition yesterday, and Werth and Wandres are riding later today.
