Jacqueline Brooks on Balmoral and Elly Schobel on Raison d’Etre were the top scorers in the North American Breeders Futurity FEI Dressage Test for Five-year Old Horses and Six-year Old Horses respectively at the 2004 Dressage at Devon.
In the six-year olds, Schobel earned a 7.6% on Raison d’Etre, an American Warmblood by the Holsteiner Regulus out of Little Doozie, a thoroughbred. Raison d’Etre was bred by Dreamtime Farm. Hanne Valentin joined Brown in judging the six-year old class.
In the Five-year olds, Brooks earned an 8.2%, a score which judge Janet Brown says would place her in the top ten percent in a European championship. Her five-year old American Hanoverian is by Belcanto out of Charisma, and was bred by Stephanie Jeffery.
