All Eyes on Olympic Equestrians

Equestrian powerhouse Germany won the dressage team gold medal in Tokyo Tuesday, July 27, with a trio of Isabell Werth, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl (pictured below) and Dorothee Schneider.


The United States won silver, competing with German-born riders Sabine Schut-Kery and Steffen Peters, alongside Adrienne Lyle.

"It's exactly what I wanted (a medal) for my team... I cried when I came out, gave Mopsie a big hug and just thanked him from the bottom of my heart," Team USA's Peters said, referring to his gelding. "It's an incredible feeling when an animal fights for you in the arena."

Germany has won every Olympic dressage team gold since 1984, apart from 2012 when Britain snatched it on home turf.
