Topping the largest division of the show was Bettina Scherer (Wellington, Fla.) and her 2017 Westphalian mare, SF Arendell. Scherer and “Wren” turned in an excellent dressage test to put them in second place with a 42.30 penalty score and moved into first place after the marathon phase. With one ball and no time penalties from the cones phase, they finished first out of 16 in the division.

“I’ve had her for three years and started her slow. We did training last year and just moved up to prelim,” said Scherer. “She did really well in the dressage. I work with Jacob Arnold and he has really helped me get her to where she needed to be for this level. She came out and did her job.”
