From Topanga, California, Mette Rosencrantz competed in yesterdays Grand Prix 3* on Finally (De Niro x Capri Sonne) a 12 year old, 17.2 Hand Chestnut Gelding, owned by Finally Partners LLC Scoring 64.596%. With a desire from the heart, Rosencrantz shares her vision, “I am very excited to be here. It’s my first time. My friends and colleagues have done this for years and years, and I have never done it. It’s been on the bucket list.” Originally from Sweden, the American citizen has trained, coached and competed on the California Dressage circuit for many years. She continued, “We are all in the same boat, regardless what level we are on. Everyone has to come up with something to put on their bucket list and that doesn’t have to be the Olympics or World Equestrian Games. It could be a show, a little out of the comfort zone, as I have done here, coming to a place I don’t know. I didn’t come to win, but to get the experience, to compete against other riders, meet other people and have a chance to do what I need to do right now and get into the show ring.”
