Judy Reynolds and Vancouver K finish 11th at FEI Dressage World Cup Finals
on 06 April 2019
Reynolds was delighted with how JP performed in the Grand Prix Freestyle To Music competition

IRISH dressage star Judy Reynolds and the Joe and Kathleen Reynolds-owned gelding Vancouver K finished in 11th place overall after a superb performance in the 2019 FEI Dressage World Cup Finals at Gothenburg in Sweden on Saturday.

Thirty-seven-year-old Reynolds from Kilteel, Co Kildare took the lead with a score of 79.350% when sixth to go of the 18 starters in the Grand Prix Freestyle To Music competition.

Speaking afterwards, Judy was delighted with how her horse performed: “I was really happy with JP [Vancouver K] today, I felt he made a really good comeback after yesterday.

"It was a bit of a difficult day for him in the arena yesterday and today he really went in and he stayed with me and was a lot more confident – so I was able to show that off and I was really happy with him,” she said.

Three of the judges awarded Reynolds and Vancouver K scores of above 81%. Giving her reaction to the score, Reynolds said: “I’m happy with it. I would have liked to have gone over the 80% but it is what it is.

"I was early enough in the class and that’s always a little bit difficult but i’m pleased. It is just under 80 and that’s still a good score so I am happy with that.”

The final attracted one of the strongest line-ups in the history of the World Cup competition.

Victory went to Germany’s Isabel Werth and Weihegold OLD with a brilliant score of 88.871%. The result saw Werth complete three World Cup Final wins in-a-row and is the fifth time in total that Werth has won the World Cup Final.

America’s Laura Graves and Verdades finished as runners-up on 87.179%, while Germany’s Helen Langehanenberg and Damsey FRH took third place on the podium with a score of 86.571%.
