Heike Holstein and Judy Reynolds recorded
a hugely impressive sixth place nish in the
German Nations Cup in Aachen, with Kildare’s

The Aachen Dressage Nations Cup took place
over two days, with scores from Thursday’s
opening Grand Prix competition added to
Friday’s Special to decide the nal placings.
All three Irish riders improved on their opening
day scores in the second round. Kildare’s Judy
Reynolds and the Joe and Kathleen Reynoldsowned Vancouver K set a new Grand Prix Special
Irish record score of 75.894% on their way to a
ninth place nish in the individual competition
– a result which qualies Reynolds for Sunday’s
Freestyle to Music.

“I’m thrilled and delighted with JP [Vancouver
K] he was so good,” Reynolds said. “There were
still a couple of things that we can improve on
but overall it was really good. There is a great
buzz here [in Aachen] about Ireland having a
team in the Nations Cup and lots of comments
about how strong a team we have put together. I
have qualied now for the Freestyle tomorrow so
really looking forward to that.”
Ireland’s Heike Holstein almost broke the 70%
barrier when scoring 69.851% with the Irish-bred
Sambuca to nish in 23rd place individually.
Ireland’s third team member Anna Merveldt
was close behind in 24th with Esporim after
producing another impressive score of 69.468%.
Germany claimed the Nations Cup winners prize
in front of their home fans ahead of Denmark in
second and USA in third. The individual victory
went to Germany’s Isabell Werth and Bella Rose
