Triple Crown® Excellence Award Goes to Susan Dutta During Week 10
Monday, March 25, 2019
Making her own top level Grand Prix horses is something that celebrated dressage rider Susan Dutta is known for. “I believe in making your own horses, and I’m very lucky that I’ve had the opportunity to learn how to do so,” Dutta said. “So, I’ve made quite a few, which has allowed me to always have a horse in the Grand Prix Ring.”
Dutta actually had two horses in the ring during Week 10 of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) in Wellington, Florida, and they both rode their way to blue ribbons. Riding her 9-year-old horse, Don Design DC, in the Test of Choice-Young Horse Grand Prix, Dutta scored a 69.3%. She explained, “We made a few mistakes, but we’re going to be able to clean those up!”
Then, riding her 10-year-old, Fegeac DC, in another FEI Test of Choice – Intermediare II, she scored 71.9 to take the win again. Dutta’s commitment to developing her own horses and bringing them up with exceptional health and fitness is something that Triple Crown Nutrition is proud to recognize, and is the reason why Dutta was selected to receive the Triple Crown Excellence Award.
As the official feed sponsor of the U.S. Equestrian Federation, Triple Crown’s unwavering devotion to nutritional excellence is not only apparent in its superior feeds, but also in its commitment to supporting all the world class equestrians and their performance horses who have gathered for the season in Wellington, Florida. The Triple Crown Excellence Award is given to a horse and rider team that demonstrates exemplary achievement within the equestrian community, as well as showing exceptionally good health and fitness.
The Dutta family is well known in the equestrian world. An international dressage competitor herself, she and her husband Tim and son Timmy, both polo players, are very much a respected part of the community in South Florida. “We have a lot of fun every day, and that’s a big part of the journey,” she commented. Dutta was excited to win the Excellence Award from Triple Crown, which included a beautiful tri-colored ribbon and commemorative plaque. “Triple Crown also sponsors my son’s polo stable. They have a wonderful product and that stable is winning, so there you go!”
