Wellington, FL - The USEF Festival of Champions presented by The Dutta Corporation continues at The Stadium at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), home of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF), showcasing the nation's best Small Tour and Large Tour combinations through Saturday, December 12.

Laura Graves of Geneva, FL, and her own 2002 Dutch Warmblood gelding Verdades (Florett AS x Liwilarda) stole the show on the first day of competition, as the duo saved the best for last, receiving a 76.460% in the Grand Prix as the final competitors in the ring. Steffen Peters, of San Diego, CA, collected second and third place honors aboard Legolas 92, a 2002 Westphalian gelding (Laomedon x Furstin) and Rosamunde, a 2007 Rheinlander mare (Rock Forever x First Lady), both owned by Four Winds Farm. Peters and Legolas 92 earned a 74.220% for second place and a 72.620% aboard Rosamunde for third.
