Holzer seemed ecstatic with her ride. “I was thrilled with my ride. I thought there were parts of it where he was the best he’s ever, ever been,” she said.
Mikala Gundersen atop Leonberg, a 16 year-old stallion by Lonely Boy XX came in second place with a fantastic score of 71.8 percent. Riding to jazz and oldies themed music, Gundersen’s ride was electric, and a true crowd pleaser. One of the highlights of the ride was the incredible engagement shown in the passage and piaffe. Taking home the yellow ribbon for the freestyle was Melissa Taylor & Schumacker Solyst, a 16 year-old Danish Warmblood by Schwadroneur. Taylor’s ride was a blast from the past and included Looney Tunes and cartoon themed songs. The music matched the horse’s rhythm well; perhaps the most memorable part of the freestyle being the canter ridden to the classic “Inspector Gadget” theme song.
Saturday was another long, busy, and successful day at the Jim Brandon Center in Wellington, FL. Stay tuned to DressageDaily.com for coverage of the third and final day of The Gold Coast Opener Festival CDI.
