For the third time in a row, the exceptional dressage rider Isabell Werth won the Deutsche Bank Prize at the CHIO Aachen. In front of some 7,000 enthusiastic spectators, the record rider not only celebrated her 50th birthday at the 2019 event, but also her 13th triumph in Deutsche Bank Stadium at the Soers in Aachen.

With a technically and choreographically superlative freestyle routine on the 15-year-old mare Bella Rose, Isabell Werth relegated fellow dressage riders Dorothee Schneider and Jessica von Bredow-Werndl to second and third place in the exciting final. To a medley of Beethoven compositions, horse and rider put on a flawless show, for which the judges awarded the new top score of 90.450 percent at the end. On Saturday, she also won the Nations Cup with the German team.

“Since 1955, Deutsche Bank has shared our passion for equestrian sports. Together we have not only accompanied the CHIO Aachen, but also helped develop dressage a little further. Thanks to the commitment of this exceptional partner, this sport, which stands for partnership and precision like no other, has been given a spectacular setting with Deutsche Bank Stadium.”

Carl Meulenbergh President of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e. V.

Clear commitment

Just how important this partnership is to Deutsche Bank is reflected by two milestones in the over 60-year partnership. In 1980, the Aachen Grand Prix de Dressage of Aachen, which had been held annually for 25 years and sponsored by Deutsche Bank, was renamed the Deutsche Bank Prize, Grand Prix Dressage of Aachen, Grand Prix Freestyle CDIO. And in 1999, Deutsche Bank Stadium was created as a unique setting for dressage riding. Since 2014, a new grandstand has provided 6,300 spectators with the opportunity to watch one of the world’s most important dressage competitions, in which the world’s elite riders vie for the highest endowed dressage prize ever.
