2009 World Cup Finals

Eurodressage is happy to be partnering with Eclipse Sportswire and photographer Matt Carter for exclusive photo coverage from the 2009 World Cup in Las Vegas. 

German Isabell Werth is the clear favourite for the 2009 World Cup Title with her Hanoverian gelding Satchmo. Of course, if all goes well as the Hong Kong piaffe problem has left a traumatizing impression on viewers. Werth and Satchmo have been performing without problems this 2008-2009 World Cup qualifier season, so she holding the best cards

Title defender Anky van Grunsven will be up for a good fight with her second choice Painted Black (by Gribaldi x Ferro). The black stallion looked fresh in the warm up and Anky will definitely give it her all.

With the withdrawal of Adelinde Cornelissen, American Steffen Peters will certainly be the toughest competitor Anky and Isabell have to face in the Thomas and Mack equestrian centre in Las Vegas. His powerhouse Ravel (by Contango) is fit and has been giving his rider a great feeling.
