German A squad rider Jessica von Bredow-Werndl has confirmed to dressursport-deutschland.de that she and her husband Max are expecting their first child in August. The rider said she had now been married for three years and was 31 years old so the time was right. One could not always have championships in mind and then miss the proper timing. The rider from Bavaria plans on competing at the World Cup Final, but she will definitely miss this year’s European Championship. Von Bredow-Werndl wants to keep on riding after the World Cup Final, she plans to listen to what her body is telling her.
