Reynolds received an invitation to compete at the 2016 World Cup finals and went on to finish in eighth place. However a sixth place finish in Saturday’s final qualifying round of the 2017 series at s-Hertogenbosch in The Netherlands, coupled with excellent results throughout the winter season, saw Reynolds finish on a 57 point total and in third place on the final league table to comfortably book her place in the world finale.

Riding the Joe and Kathleen Reynolds-owned 15-year-old gelding Vancouver K, Judy finished with a score of 77.87% in Saturday’s competition, which was won by Dutch rider Hans Peter Minderhoud riding Glock´s Flirt on a score of 84.89%. German World No.1 Isabel Werth finished second with Emilio (83.30%), while another German rider, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl, took third place on the podium with Zaire (80.265%).
