Wellington, FL – The 2018 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) opened the winter season at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, Florida

Jennifer Baumert (USA) on Elizabeth Juliano’s Handsome was the only rider to crack the 70% barrier in the day’s second prix st georges class — the ProElite-sponsored CDI1* — finishing on 70.637%. The 13-year- old Hanoverian son of Hochadel (out of a mare by Weltmeyer) beat Lemony’s Nicket — ridden by Michael Klimke — who sold to the US for the then record price of €900,000 in Verden, Germany, in 2011 — in to second place.

Competition at AGDF continued today with a full schedule of classes, including two CDI intermediate I classes, before the first “Friday Night Stars” FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI-W, presented by Adequan®, starting at 7pm. For more information and results, visit www.globaldressagefestival.com.
