Carol Lavell and Gifted
Wednesday, January 12, 2000
Well known American Olympic Dressage alumni, Carol Lavell has won National Championships from First Level to Grand Prix, with two exquisitely trained horses, "Gifted and "In the Black."
In 1990, with the late great Gifted, a Hanoverian by Garibaldi II, Lavell was the highest placing American in Dressage at the World Equestrian Games, and was named The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) Equestrian Athlete of the Year.
Together they went on to win every Grand Prix she entered, and in 1991 and won the U.S. League Final for the World Cup Freestyle.
Lavell keeps a busy training and teaching center and winters at her Florida Farm in the Dressage Community of White Fences.
