An incredible start to the year for Mount St John Freestyle and Charlotte Dujardin who finished a close second behind defending World Cup champions Isabell Werth and Weihegold OLD at the World Cup qualifier in Amsterdam last month. With a new power and softness they posted a score of 89.5%, which is a new personal best for the pair by 2%.

FREESTYLE IS WORLD NUMBER 4
Mount St John Freestyle and Charlotte Dujardin start the year ranked world number 4 in the first International Equestrian Federation rankings of 2020, moving up from 6th at the end of 2019.
Also as a huge mare supporter we're thrilled to see 4 out of the 5 top ranked horses as mares! Isabell Werth's rides Bella Rose 2 and Weihegold OLD and world number 1 and 2, then TSF Dalera BB ridden by Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl sits in 5th behind Freestyle. What a dream come true and surely a first that the top 5 has been dominated by mares?!
