Day one of the Palm Beach Dressage Derby held at the White Fences Equestrian Estates, had four rings in full swing, following the official FEI horse inspection held on Thursday. Hosts Walter and Maryanne McPhail have put out the red carpet for all participants, with the grounds of their new equestrian community serving as the perfect backdrop for the premier dressage event of the winter season.
Tina Konyot won both the Intermediare II on Irene Kooyman's Justice, and the Prix St George on Kroongraaf. Complete results can be found on the official Palm Beach Dressage Derby linked on our Dressage in Florida 2000 coverage.
