Sader-Larson and Legretto 04 Clinch Another Grand Prix Win

The Grand Prix Open division was topped by Alison Sader Larson and Legretto 04, with a 65%. Sader-Larson had her two main men in town this weekend husband Ken, and dad, Henry to cheer her on as she and her students put the finishing touches on a successful season.

Sader-Larson has reaped the benefits from her winters in Florida, having trained Legretto 04 a 10 year old Hanoverian by Laptop to grand prix. Sader-Larson, who rides with the support of The Medal Equestrian Foundation, and her husband Ken Larson a veterinarian are building their own facility in Maple Lake, Minnesota.

PRE Stallion Idilio Works His Way Up in the Grand Prix

Second in the Grand Prix Open was Hampton Green Farms’s PRE Stallion Idilio, ridden by Pati Pierucci. The gorgeous 12-year-old Pura Raza Espanola by Orgulloso XXIII, and Pierucci have been training this winter with German Team veteran Martin Schaudt who has been spending considerable time working with the popular breed. Idilio’s big moving trot work and passage/piaffe tour earned the pair a 63%. Hampton Green Farm’s owner Kim Boyer was thrilled with their progress, and is looking forward to their upcoming clinic with famed Spanish dressage team rider Raphael Soto, April 10-11.

By the way, one of Wellington’s best kept secrets (well no more now that we mentioned it on DressageDaily) are Hampton Green’s private luncheons provided by Kim’s husband Frederick a fabulous French chef. After selling their Wellington restaurant to Tavern on the Green this past summer, Frederick prepares a daily luncheon at their beautiful facility, by reservation only.
