Share

German dressage rider Jessica von Bredow-Werndl thrilled spectators at a freestyle demonstration at the weekend with her stallion Unee BB without a saddle and in a snaffle bit.

Using only a saddle pad, von Bredow-Werndl and Unee BB performed at the Gut Ising Chiemsee Festival of dressage in Bavaria.

With the 14-year-old son of Gribaldi, von Bredow-Werndl has won several major competitions in the past season, including a bronze team medal at the European Championships in Aachen in August.

The 29-year-old from Upper Bavaria had her first riding lesson at the age of four, and got her first pony at the age of seven.

    Forget the no saddle (which I think catches her in the flying changes, look at the brilliance of the piaffe and passage and how little leg she uses. Also the music matches the horse’s movements so beautifully – particularly in the piaffe. Wonderful to watch.
