His final score was 525.10. Peter Tischer of Germany was second with a score of 568.34 and Ludwig Weinmayr of Germany was third with 596.20.

He then went clear in the cones. “My dressage has been good all year, it’s my strong suit, but we were the last starter of over 40 to go in the dressage and the ring looked like a plowed field. Others had difficulty with it but my team handled it,” said Weber.

Weber said he believes this win indicates that the United States’ driving team should be in contention at CHIO Aachen next week, and at the World Championships in Hungary, August 3rd through the 8th.
