Germany, with 13 gold medals in Olympic Equestrian Dressage, is the favorite to climb to the top of the podium at Tokyo 2020 in this team competition that is to have its medals test on July 27.

Since the dressage competition was first introduced at the Amsterdam Olympic Games in 1928, the Germans, who that year beat Sweden and the Netherlands, have been dominant and it's looking very much like gold medal number 14 is just around the corner.

Isabell Werth, the six-time Olympic champion, nine-time world champion and 20-time European champion, will lead the German lineup with the mare Bella Rose. EFE
