Alice Tarjan found herself in the company of such big names as Olympic medalists Steffen Peters and Adrienne Lyle today when the U.S. Equestrian Federation announced the Dutta Corp. U.S. Dressage Team Short List for the 2022 FEI Dressage World Championships in Herning, Denmark, this summer.
“It’s an honor,” said Alice. The Oldwick, N.J., resident was chosen with Serenade MF, a 9-year-old Hanoverian mare that she has trained to Grand Prix herself.
“Her breeder, Maryanna Haymon, is absolutely thrilled because she’s the only American-bred on the list. That’s kind of exciting,” said Alice, who has a whole string of horses she bought as youngsters and developed.
“It is amazing how she can just bring up horse after horse to Grand Prix like that and have them do as well as they do. That is remarkable. No one has ever done that here,” said U.S. dressage development coach Charlotte Bredahl.
