Isabell Werth has found another diamond
Isabell Werth on her horse, Bella Rose and what makes her special:
“Her beauty, her movement, her character, her sensitivity, the ability for piaffe and passage. I have never had a horse like her. She is so beautiful and proud and has so much charisma. I saw that in her when she was three and now it shines.”
On her ride in Ornano stadium:
“I was surprised how calm she was. Very often her first trot is hurried but today she waited quietly for every one of my aides. Normally I ride her twice in the morning with only a short warm up before the ride. But today because of our early start I had to change this routine and it worked. The mistake in the zig zag travers was my fault.
On her strategy for the Grand Prix Special:
"I have nothing to loose and will risk more than today. We'll see.
On finding a very special horse of a life time:
“It is difficult to find something really special and you should always look for a Gigolo or a Bella Rose. But you can’t always wait for a star. You might wait all your life then.”
“I am only 45 and not the grandma of the sport. There are others here older than me. But I have the experience and I know the ups and downs of the sport that younger ones might still have to discover. I am getting older, but Bella Rose is still young.”
