Wellington, FL - Week six of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) concluded competition on Saturday, February 18, with a win for Suzan Pape (GBR) and Harmony's Fiorano in the FEI Grand Prix at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, FL.
The Adequan® Global Dressage Festival returns on February 23-26 and features CDI-W competition presented by The Axel Johnson Group and FEI Small Tour competition presented by Wellington Regional Medical Center.
Suzan Pape (GBR) and Harmony's Fiorano, a 2005 Hanoverian gelding (Rousseau x Rousseau x Rotspon) owned by Harmony Sporthorses, topped the FEI Grand Prix on Saturdays with a score of 74.900%.
"I really enjoyed my ride today. He was totally focused and wanted to do his best," said Pape. "Maybe his walk wasn't so relaxed, but he had many highlights in the piaffe and passage work, canter pirouettes, and had totally straight tempi-changes. We scored a personal best which makes me very happy. I am very much looking forward to future challenges after I return to Europe in the beginning of March."
Second place was awarded to Adrienne Lyle (USA), and Salvino, a 2007 Hanoverian stallion (Sandro Hit x Donnerhall) owned by Salvino Partners LLC, with a 72.900%. Third place went to Christilot Boylen (CAN) and Drenato, a 2003 Hanoverian gelding (De Niro x Brenda Lee x Brentono II) owned by Deborah Miculinic, with a score of 69.400%.
Competition at AGDF will resume with a full schedule of classes, including CDI-W competition presented by The Axel Johnson Group, and FEI Small Tour classes, presented by Wellington Regional Medical Center, on February 23-26.
