2016 CP Wellington Masters Wellington Masters February 3 - 7 D eeridge Farms, a 300-acre oasis of serenity and beauty set in the Village of Wellington will host the 2016 CP Wellington Masters, presented by Sovaro™ – one of only seven East Coast qualifying events in the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American league for the 2016 World Cup Jumping Final. For many years, the class has been hosted in Wellington. However, the prestigious international competition became available through a bidding process in 2014, which raised the potential for this pivotal event to leave Wellington and be held elsewhere in the North America. Page 12 The loss of such an important FEI World Cup™ qualifying class would have been devastating to the hundreds of competitors that call Wellington home in the winter, as well as for the local community that has come to realize the importance of such classes. That’s when the Jacobs family stepped up. “When we heard there was a strong possibility the World Cup qualifier was at risk, we wanted to do something to ensure it would stay here,” said Lou Jacobs. “My family discussed how we could help and we decided to host the event at Deeridge Farms.

It is important to the community, competitors and enthusiasts that we keep it here.” The Jacobs family hired the experienced and highlyregarded management team, Stadium Jumping, Inc., (SJI) organizers of The North American Riders Group’s (NARG) number one show in the United States, the American Gold Cup. The Gold Cup is another one of the seven east coast qualifiers. Stadium Jumping, with nearly 50 years experience, has produced numerous qualifying classes, but was also the first equestrian event organizer to ever bring the World Cup Finals to the United States. With a strong belief in the potential and promise of the World Cup concept, SJI founder Gene Mische brought the World Cup Finals to Baltimore in only its second year of existence in 1980 and then produced another World Cup Final in Tampa in 1989. “It’s exciting to use our family’s farm to host the best event possible for Longines FEI World Cup qualifier,” stated Charlie Jacobs. “As a competitor, I am honored to be a part of this word-class event, and my family shares my commitment to preserving this class in Wellington.” A total of 14 athletes from the new Longines FEI World Cup™ North American league will qualify for the prestigious Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final, which will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden March 23-28 this year.The top seven athletes from the East Coast US, top three from West Coast US, and the two best-placed athletes from Canada and Mexico, will qualify for the final, alongside winners of 15 leagues around the world.

West Coast Olympic Season Gets Underway This Week at California Dreaming Productions’ LA Winter Dressage CDI-W by Jennifer M. Keeler W ith the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro fast approaching, the West Coast’s top dressage prospects got a head start on qualifying for the U.S. Team during the Los Angeles Winter Dressage CDIW/Y/J/U-25, held January 28-31 in Burbank, CA. “Due to demand from riders for another West Coast CDI in this tremendously important year as well as the need for an additional World Cup qualifying event on this coast, we decided to upgrade this January show to an FEI event,” said Glenda McElroy, coorganizer of California Dreaming Productions with David and Alisa Wilson. “The whole reason we host this series is for the good of the sport, so we’re glad to be able to help competitors achieve their goals and are delighted with the response we’ve received. It’s a great way to start what we anticipate will be a very exciting season here in California.” Former Olympic teammates Steffen Peters and Guenter Seidel headlined the CDI Grand Prix field at LA Winter Dressage as they are both looking for a hopeful return to the U.S. Dressage Team this summer. Peters competed with his 2015 Pan American Games Gold Medal-winning mount Legolas 92 as well as young phenom Rosamunde, while Seidel presented rising star Zero Gravity to the international ground jury which includes Lilo Fore (5* USA), Cara Whitham (5* CAN), Gabriel Armando (4* ARG), Bo Jenna (4* SWE), and Sandy Hotz (4* USA). Both Peters and Seidel are making their 2016 debuts after competing at the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions in Florida in December, and now look forward to kicking off the new show season in their home state of California. “I’ve ridden around the world and there’s no doubt there are some incredible places to show,” said Peters. “But we’ve competed at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center for many years, and there are so many wonderful memories here. It’s a special place and it’s nice to be close to home.” Thanks to the hard-working staff of the Los Angeles Equestrian Center, a multitude of improvements will welcome competitors back to the facility for the New Year. No matter what kind of weather El Niño brings to the West Coast, CDI competitors will enjoy perfect conditions in the covered Equidome (which was outfitted with brand new GGT footing in November), as well as a completely remodeled horse show office and patio seating areas to enjoy California Dreaming Productions’ renowned hospitality. Series organizers also Page 26 welcomed major show supporters Kastel Denmark, Shapley Horse Products, and Lisa Seger Insurance, as well as an exciting new partnership with SmartPak. The California Dressage Society (CDS) returns as a media partner, and LA Saddlery once again present the “Best Dressed” awards in Burbank. In addition to being an Olympic Games and Reem Acra/ FEI World Cup Dressage Final qualifying competition, the LA Winter Dressage CDI and open show is an official qualifier for a multitude of national awards and championship programs, including the USEF Festival of Champions; the Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC); the Markel/USEF National Young & Developing Horse Dressage Championships; the National Dressage Pony Cup (NDPC); USDF yearend awards and regional championships; and California Dressage Society (CDS) Horse of the Year awards and annual championship show. Steffen Peters Earns Highest 2016 CDI Grand Prix Score in U.S. on First Day of LA Winter Dressage CDI-W With glorious sunshine and soaring spirits, the West Coast’s 2016 Olympic Games qualifying season got off to a flying start on the first day of California Dreaming Productions’ Los Angeles Winter Dressage CDI-W/Y/J/U-25 as former Olympian and U.S. Team favorite Steffen Peters of San Diego dominated the Grand Prix division, setting new personal best scores for two of his mounts in the process. Aboard his 2015 Pan American Games Team and Individual Gold Medal partner Legolas 92, Peters earned a whopping 79.942% from the international judging panel of Lilo Fore (5* USA), Cara Whitham (5* CAN), Bo Jena (4* SWE), Sandy Hotz (4* USA), and Fernando Barba (3* PHI). This score is not only the highest score that Four Winds Farm’s veteran Westfalen gelding (Laomedon x Fuerstin by Florestan II) has earned to date in international Grand Prix competition, but is also the best CDI Grand Prix score earned by any competitor in the United States so far in 2016 and is the top mark in the Reem Acra FEI World Cup North American League standings. “It was one of those days where everything just went perfectly in our preparation. From the very first step he was right on, and it www.TheCompetitiveEquestrian.com TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016

resulted in an incredible, clean test,” said Peters. “On days like this, I can allow him to be a little more open in the neck, and then he really does that incredible passage he’s capable of. The changes were perfect today without any anticipation, and it was just wonderful. It was the best test of his career.” By setting the bar so high right out of the starting gate in the 2016 season, Peters realized the pressure to continue to perform up to expectations as the world looks to Rio de Janeiro this summer. “The logical question that everyone asks is whether or not we can maintain this score going forward to the 5* in Florida as well as in Europe,” Peters admitted. “I think the expectations do need to be high in an Olympic year and we will do our best to achieve the highest possible standard.” Following right on her stablemate’s heels, young prodigy Rosamunde (Rheinlander mare [Rock Forever x First Lady by Fidermark]) also set a personal best under Peters’ experienced hand, earning a score of 76.820% for second place. “It was a wonderful test today, the highest score of her career so far,” Peters explained. “We worked on all of the suggestions that the judges had for us at the Festival of Champions in December, and I think today her extensions were better and her changes were straighter. Overall it was a very polished test, and it’s such a blast to ride her when she’s ‘on’ like that. Both she and Legolas gave it their very best today, and I can’t even express in words how proud I am of them.” In the CDI Prix St. Georges test, Christine Ekstrand and Concetta (Hanoverian mare [Contendro x Baroness H by Buenos Aires]) earned an overall score of 68.632% and a narrow victory over Kim Yacobucci aboard her home-bred Oldenburg mare Dona Rosa (Don Graphit x Lalique by Layout) with 67.184%. In the CDI Young Riders Team Test, Lauren Asher earned the victory aboard her new mount, veteran FEI small tour champion De Noir 3 (Hanoverian gelding [De Niro x Maharani by Matcho AA]) with 68.070%, while in the Junior division Francesca Sheld rode Reagan to the win with 63.333% over Paris Richman and Dante on 62.117%. Peters & Legolas 92 Earn 84% For Another Personal Best Score on Second Day of LA Winter Dressage CDI-W Records continued to fall on the second day of California Dreaming Productions’ Los Angeles Winter Dressage CDIW/Y/J/U-25 as Steffen Peters and Legolas 92 proved that the impressive marks they earned during Saturday’s Grand Prix competition were no fluke. The veteran pair have found great success traveling the world representing the United States at World Equestrian Games, World Cup Finals, and last year’s Pan American Games in Canada, but they had to settle for reserve national championship honors after a disappointing start during December’s USEF Festival of Champions in Florida. However, the return to their San Diego home and familiar California stomping ground now appears to have been a successful strategy to further their Olympic preparations. During Saturday’s CDI-W Grand Prix Freestyle, Peters rode Four Winds Farm’s veteran Westfalen gelding (Laomedon x TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016 In their first competition since December’s USEF Festival of Champions, Steffen Peters and Legolas 92 earned yeat another personal best score in the CDI Grand Prix Freestyle test on the second day of the LA Winter Dressage CDI-W | Photograph by Jennifer Keeler Fuerstin by Florestan II) to yet another personal best with a huge score of 84.050%, winning the class by a double-digit margin and posting the best performance to date by any U.S.team contender in the current Olympic selection year, as well as earning the highest CDI Grand Prix Freestyle score of a rider of any nationality competing in North America so far in 2016. “Usually when the Grand Prix test is great, the second day isn’t quite as good, but I thought Legolas was just as good today as he was yesterday,” said Peters. “He has seemed more relaxed this weekend and it resulted in another clean test - I was even able to go for more tempi changes, doing 17 one-tempis today instead of his usual 13. The relaxation makes all the difference for him. It’s the best score for him so far, and I think the highest I ever had with Ravel was an 86% so we’re getting closer. He’s stepping nicely into the footsteps of his brother. It’s an exciting day.” In just their second international competition together, Shayna Simon and her Hanoverian gelding Harley Davidson (His Highness x Walt Lady by Walt Disney I) earned 68.684% to claim victory in the Intermediaire I by just six-tenths of a point over Kim Yacobucci and her Oldenburg mare Dona Rosa (Don Graphit x Lalique by Layout) with 68.079%. In the CDI Young Riders Individual Test, Lauren Asher and her Hanoverian gelding De Noir 3 (De Niro x Maharani by Matcho AA) earned another win with 68.728%, while in the Junior Individual Test Francesca Sheld rode Reagan to their second victory in as many days with 63.509% over Paris Richman and Dante.

Trussell Makes It Two Victories in a Row Aboard Anton with Win in AGDF 3 FEI Grand Prix Freestyle presented by U.S. P.R.E. Association January 29, 2016 B elinda Trussell (CAN) and Anton impressed the judging panel again today in the AGDF 3 “Friday Night Stars” FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI-W, presented by U.S. P.R.E. Association, as the pair took their second win of the week in Large Tour competition at the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF). Trussell and Anton earned a 75.025% to take a commanding lead in the class of 15 entries. Allison Brock (USA) and Rosevelt concluded an outstanding performance for the pair earning a score of 73.900% while fellow American Shelly Francis and Doktor collected a 73.400% for third place. Trussell and Anton, a 2002 Saschen Warmblood gelding (Antaeus x Shirley) owned by Robyn Eames and Marc Trussell, have showcased their consistency in their first competition back since the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto this past November. Watch | Belinda Trussell and Anton in their winning FEI Grand Prix Freestyle Belinda Trussell and Anton | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle Page 32 www.TheCompetitiveEquestrian.com ”Anton was really hot tonight and I was hoping to keep everything in control and keep our harmony together. He was great. It really felt like I was riding a rocket. He’s such a good boy, and he loves his job,” noted Trussell. “I’m so thrilled for these two wins and am sitting here in utter shock to be sitting in this company. It’s wonderful to be here, and I’m so thankful to my owners and my family at home.” All smiles during their test, Trussell feels that she has truly hit the right stride with her veteran partner who has come back to competition in top form after overcoming a serious injury a few years ago. Trussell has hopes of qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, later this summer. TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016

“Post-injury, he has never felt better. It’s incredible because we never thought that he would come back better and continue to get personal bests. Winning a medal for Canada last year (at the Pan American Games) was huge and hopefully (we are) going to Rio. It feels incredible,” she elaborated. “I just want to enjoy each ride, and you don’t know what tomorrow has to bring. You want to set goals and you think about them, but you always have to enjoy each moment and enjoy each ride. I always think about that. I get to ride him again in this atmosphere and in this stadium and I want to enjoy that, our team work, with the ultimate goal of being brilliant.” Allison Brock (USA) and the impressive 2002 Hanoverian stallion (Rotspon x Lauries Crusader xx) Rosevelt, owned by Fritz and Claudine Kundrun, continue to captivate audiences from around the globe, as the pair displays such power and presence in each of their tests. Rosevelt, who has been known to be sensitive in large environments, performed the test with tremendous ease, which Brock hopes is the next stage in their partnership. Allison Brock and Rosevelt | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle “He was so good. I personally have been very nervous to do freestyles here because we had a bad experience last year under the lights where he was incredibly scared,” she explained. “I decided to do the exhibition at Washington International (Horse Show) this past year, and he was really good. I couldn’t believe how he handled that environment. I thought to myself, ‘I really need to bite the bullet and do it.’ So we decided to do it.” “Tonight maybe he got a little happy doing the changes, but now I can drop the reins and that horse will walk. He stands in the award ceremony. All of these things he’s feeling comfortable with. I want him to trust the situation I’m putting him in, and I feel like I got that.” Francis and Doktor, another U.S. Olympic hopeful combination, performed their first FEI Grand Prix Freestyle of the 2016 season and Francis spoke positively about the outcome in this important qualifying year. “My little Doktor was a bit nervous tonight, but he tried really hard. He’s getting to the point where he’s getting dependable for me in the arena. I just have to get my act together now and maybe start squeezing more a bit,” said Francis, who finished in third place. “We haven’t shown that much this season. Right now we’re trying to get through smooth and ride the choreography a bit better. He felt awesome. He does what I want, and he’s really cool with what’s going on.” Judge at C Linda Zang commented on the rides she judged throughout the night and expressed her optimism and anticipation of what is to come for the sport of dressage in North America over the course of the next few years. She explained, “I think Page 34 www.TheCompetitiveEquestrian.com TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016

it’s absolutely wonderful that we have this entire circuit in Florida because it’s made our sport grow so much in the United States and in Canada. I’m sitting here just thinking what an international group of riders we have here. There were five nations represented in just tonight’s freestyle alone. That’s quite an accomplishment.” The U.S. P.R.E. Association took the lead on major sponsorship for AGDF 3, presenting the second “Friday Night Stars” event of the season, which has continued to expand in popularity. “We had the opportunity to get involved from the very first year and we thought there’s no better way to promote a breed for dressage than push our brand to a target audience,” explained Kim Boyer, President of the U.S. P.R.E. Association. “Of course, nobody back then would have thought that it would have grown to the size that it is today. Now it’s a destination for our members and visitors and we’ve brought in a number of Spanish dignitaries. It’s almost become a mini-convention here. It’s educational for us and a great opportunity to showcase our horses.” Thomas Baur, Director of Sport for the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) stated his gratitude for the team working behind the scenes who helped to successfully coordinate several ring and scheduling changes to accommodate riders after South Florida saw days of torrential downpours and inclement weather. “It was a great effort from everyone to make our changes work. I would like to especially thank our judges and e-scribes this week as this was the first CDI we’ve done here with electronic recording of scores. It worked quite well and we’ll continue to do better, but I’m very proud of the team here this week.” Shelly Francis and Doktor | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle Allyn Mann of Adequan® discussed the company’s presence around the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) venue, not only as the title sponsor of the entire circuit, but now the main contributor to the prestigious owner awards that are given during each “Friday Night Freestyle” FEI Grand Prix Freestyle event. “First off, I think we all need to thank Kim for her vision and financial contribution to build the covered arena, or else we wouldn’t be sitting here tonight,” he explained. “Without owners, none of us are sitting here. Thank you to all of the owners. These awards are just another way that we can show our appreciation to the people who are truly the foundation of everything we have here. Without them, none of this would be.” Adequan® presented several owner awards throughout the evening, including the High Point National Owner Award, which was Belinda Trussell and Anton in their presentation ceremony with representatives of the U.S. P.R.E. presented to Shaween Jacobs, owner of Association, Allyn Mann of Adequan®, Katherine Bellissimo, Linda Zang, and Sponsorship Ebony, which was accepted on her behalf Coordinator Cora Causemann. | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016 www.TheCompetitiveEquestrian.com Page 35

Leida Collins-Strijk and Don Tignanello | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle Tuny Page and Woodstock March to Victory in FEI Grand Prix Special, Presented by Yeguada de Ymas at AGDF 3 January 30, 2016 T he final day of Grand Prix competition at the AGDF 3 CDI-W presented by the U.S. P.R.E. Association, and the third week of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF), concluded with the Grand Prix Special, presented by Yeguada de Ymas. Today’s competition was held in the Global International Ring at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), and showcased a clean sweep by the Americans for the top three placings. Arlene “Tuny” Page (USA) rode her own Woodstock to the top of the class, winning with a score of 73.059%. The FEI Grand Prix Special is the most demanding test in the dressage world, requiring more passage, one-tempis changes, and variations in the transitions into and out of piaffe and passage. Page and Woodstock, her KWPN Page 36 gelding, showed excellent consistency throughout the test and impressed both his rider and the judges with his professionalism. Page said, however, that she knows they have the potential to earn even higher scores as the season progresses. “I need to keep improving my riding to accommodate his energy and I felt like I got closer today. There are so many points still there, and my goal is to improve his confidence that he can move like that and I can ride like that show by show.” She attributes their recent successes to her new approach of not riding how he might react but instead “trying to be in the moment with this horse and allowing me to ride with very close focus; he loves it!” Page and Woodstock will join the other members of the top three in the CDI 5*, presented by Diamante Farms, at the next week of competition at the AGDF on February 11-14. Kasey Perry-Glass (USA) continued her superbly successful first CDI at the Grand Prix level with Goerklintgaards Dublet, the 13-year-old Danish gelding (Diamond Hit x La Costa) owned by Diane Perry. The pair was very close to Page and Woodstock, earning a 72.902%. Perry-Glass, when asked how it felt to be new to the level and sitting between established dressage competitors such as Page and Francis, responded, “I’m lucky to have two awesome women next to me. They’re strong competitors and good friends.” She and Dublet have worked to build their relationship to www.TheCompetitiveEquestrian.com TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016

develop the power, skills, and confidence to move up to the big tour, and she thanked Debbie MacDonald for helping her to reaffirm and re-establish their partnership. Third place went to Shelly Francis (USA) riding Patricia Stempel’s Danilo, the 12-year-old Hanoverian gelding (De Niro x Annabelle). The pair earned a 71.900%, capping a very successful weekend for Francis, who also placed sixth in the FEI Grand Prix and third in the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle with Stempel’s Doktor. Francis noted that one of the challenges Danilo poses is his extraordinary energy and power. She said, “If I ride full out all the time, he’ll go over the edge, so I do a lot of interval training to keep him sane and happy.” She and Page also discussed the challenge of preparing horses who spent the summer and early fall competing in Europe to come home and peak for the winter season. Both riders are fitting up their horses as they progress through the shows with the goal of steadily improving their performances and earning spots on the squad that will travel to Europe. Perry-Glass would also like to make that squad, but she, like Page and Francis, is approaching the season one show at a time. Judge Janet Foy expressed great enthusiasm over the quality of today’s rides. “The panel was very excited about these horses, and we could have been closer to 78% with all three of these ladies had there been no mistakes. Judges hate mistakes! We’re really rooting for all of them, but it is still early and they’re still getting stronger and used to the venue. I think in a couple of weeks we’ll see scores closer to 80% and we love that.” Kasey Perry-Glass and Goerklintgaards Dublet Photograph by ©SusanJStickle Arlene Page and Woodstock | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle Shelly Francis and Doktor | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle

Leida CollinsStrijk and Don Tignanello Sweep Small Tour Competition at AGDF 3 January 31, 2016 L eida Collins-Strijk (NED) and Don Tignanello took a clean sweep of Small Tour competition at the third week of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF), earning wins in all three classes presented by Chesapeake Dressage Institute. Collins-Strijk and Don Tignanello completed their dominating week this afternoon, earning a 75.792% in the FEI Intermediaire I Freestyle to take top honors. Michael Klimke (GER) and Djamba Djokiba followed in second place with 73.333%, while Katharina Stumpf (AUT) and For My Love were third with 71.417%. Competition at AGDF will continue with the AGDF 5 CDI 5*, presented by Diamante Farms, CDI 3*, presented by Wellington Equestrian Realty, and CDI 1*, presented by Kirk Arabians, on February 10-14. Collins-Strijk showcased the fluidity and suppleness of the 2005 Hanoverian gelding (Don Vino x Atlantica) in all three classes this week, which included the FEI Prix St. Georges, FEI Intermediaire I, and FEI Intermediaire I Freestyle all presented by Chesapeake Dressage Institute. “I’ve been working a lot on the canter work. He’s such a big horse and the balance for him is really hard. I think it will be the focus again for the next few weeks too,” explained Collins-Strijk when asked what she believes the pair has improved on over the course of the week. “In the freestyle, I was definitely better with the music. Last week I wasn’t really sure where I was going because we had not done it together many times, but I practiced it this morning and was much better on track.” The pair, who have started to work on the basics of the Grand Prix movements, will continue their course at the Small Tour level over the next few weeks, as CollinsStrijk believes they will gain valuable experience for their anticipated transition to Grand Prix at some point during the year. “We won’t move up until I’m confident that we can do really well. We’re not 100% there and even when I feel like we are ready to move up, we will do some of the National shows first to get more experience there too,” she noted. Zantros (Krack C x Hinde-Utopia), another mount for Page 38 Leida Collins-Strijk and Don Tignanello | Photograph by ©SusanJStickle Collins-Strijk, made his debut at AGDF this week in the Small Tour alongside his stablemate. The pair also earned top finishes including a fourth place in the FEI Prix St Georges and a third in the FEI Intermediaire I, but with only one horse allowed to compete in the freestyle per rider, Collins-Strijk chose Don Tignanello for the class. “I love Zantros. He’s by Krack C and you can just sit there and look pretty because he does it and knows his job. I quite like that, but you can’t take two horses in the freestyle, (so) I’m hoping to also do the freestyle with him at some point as well,” commented Collins-Strijk. “We’ll definitely focus on getting that bigger step, but he’ll get off this week with hacking and taking it easy before we begin to prepare again. After the next CDI there is a bit of a long break for him and that’s when we’ll start to working on that,” she continued. The Consolation Grand Prix concluded the final day of FEI competition at AGDF 3 presented by the U.S. P.R.E. Association, as Evi Strasser (CAN) and Renaissance Tyme took the win with a 65.767%. Joanne Vaughan (GEO) and Elmegarden’s Marquis followed in second with a 64.033%, while Maria Florencia Manfredi (ARG) and Bandurria Kacero earned third place with a 63.633%. Competition at AGDF will begin on Wednesday, February 10, with the highly anticipated FEI CDI5* competition, presented by Diamante Farms. The venue will also prepare to host the Asheville Regional Airport Wellington Eventing Showcase, presented by Wellington Equestrian Realty, on Friday, February 5, and continuing through Saturday, February 6, and the AGDF 4 National Show on February 6-7.

LAURA GRAVES AWARDED THE DRESSAGE FOUNDATION’S $25,000 CAROL LAVELL ADVANCED DRESSAGE PRIZE T Laura Graves - Verdades Photographby Ken Braddick (dressage-news.com) he Dressage Foundation (TDF) has announced that U.S. High Performance rider, Laura Graves, has been awarded the 2016 Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize in the amount of $25,000. She was selected because she displays the characteristics and qualities of being a talented, committed, qualified rider whose plans are to reach and excel at the elite, international standards of high performance dressage. Laura Graves is based in Orlando, FL, where she trains and competes with her Dutch Warmblood, Verdades, or “Diddy.” Laura’s goals for 2016 include qualifying for the World Cup Finals in Sweden and to be selected to represent the U.S. in the 2016 Olympic Games. She plans to utilize the month of March to train intensively with Debbie McDonald. After the World Cup, she plans to join the American team in Europe and compete at two European CDIOs in Rotterdam and Aachen. “I am beyond honored to be the recipient of this grant from The Dressage Foundation,” said Laura. “I thank the Foundation, the selection committee and of course Carol Lavell for their trust and support. This grant will allow me the freedom to focus on everything Diddy needs as we move into our first Olympic year. Having constant and consistent focus on our training, both here in the U.S. and when we travel overseas, will make a difference. Page 42 It can be tenths of a percentage that decide medals and I don’t plan on letting any points slip away. Thank you!” The Carol Lavell Advanced Dressage Prize Fund was established in 2009 in special remembrance of Carol’s mother, May Cadwgan, and in honor of her father, Gordon Cadwgan. Since that time, the Prize Fund has made ten awards totaling $250,000 in support of U.S. High Performance teams.

Jumping BORDEAUX: THE SPORTING CHALLENGE Bordeaux Style T he Jumping International of Bordeaux has hosted a leg of the Longines FEI World Cup™ circuit for many years now. It’s one of those competitions that all riders dream of winning. Initial success in this prestgious series went to the French riders, who got off to a spectacular start in Scandinavia and with an historic triple win in Oslo. The final leg promises to be just as exciting with the International Jumping of Bordeaux selected once again to host the Driving World Cup Final as well as providing the venue for the European final of the Show Jumping World Cup™. Page 48 This year the Show Jumping World Cup™ consisted of 11 legs. Bordeaux is the last leg before the final in Gothenburg (23-28 March), effectively making it the European final. Bordeaux will decide on the winner of the difficult Western European league as well as the 18 European riders who will accompany the titleholder and Olympic champion, Steve Guerdat, to Sweden. The stakes will be high in Bordeaux for two reasons. It’s the first international show jumping competition on the French calendar and it is an Olympic year. The French riders will be going all out to prove their form to Philippe Guerdat, the French national trainer, and the father of the last World Cup™ winner. Temperatures are likely to reach fever pitch in Aquitaine! www.TheCompetitiveEquestrian.com TCE FEBRUARY WARM-UP 2016

DEVOUCOUX INDOOR DERBY The Jumping International of Bordeaux has always promoted driving through a variety of classes. In 2014 we decided to honor another discipline of the equestrian sport, eventing. And for the first time in France during the Jumping International of Bordeaux, this indoor derby gathered the best eventing riders for a breathtaking class that set the public alight. Again this year, the indoor cross promises great entertainment, both for the spectators and the riders who will once again come to participate to this unique competition. Authentic cross-country fences are installed throughout the main arena and in the warm-up arena. The Devoucoux Indoor Derby course is composed of twenty fixed and showjumping type obstacles, set over a one kilometer track. This competition is not to be confused with a normal eventing course . The Devoucoux Indoor Derby is halfway between a cross-country and a hunting course and appeared on the circuit in the past few years. This year, the French eventing riders will be well supported as they have already earned their qualification for the Olympic Games in Rio. Last October, they won two medals at the European Championships (which took place in Blair Castle, Scotland). Sidney Dufresne, who won this event consecutively in both Stumgart and Geneva with his horse Looping de Buissy, will be participating in the Bordeaux Indoor Derby. RIDERS 25 French or foreign eventing riders, invited by the organization committee. HORSES The horses which are invited to participate in the Devoucoux Indoor Derby have to have been already placed in a CCI2* or CIC2*. Only one horse only per rider is allowed. THE COURSE The course uses the main arena, the warm-up arena, and the pathway between both. There will be 12 fixed and solid fences and 5 showjumping type obstacles, including: a bank, water, an eye, some skinnies, corners and some brush fences. The fixed fence maximum height is 1.10m and the show jumping obstacles will be a maximum height of 1.30m. The Competitive Equestrian looks forward to bringing you a report from the event.

T he Longines Masters of Hong Kong 2016 promises to be Asia’s equestrian social event of the year combining world-class showjumping, with fashion, art, Michelin-star gastronomy and entertainment for riding enthusiasts and fans of all ages - a ‘place to see and be seen’ when the world’s most glamourous equestrian competition reaches its last leg, at AsiaWorld-Expo from February 19-21. Hong Kong is set to be the last leg of the Longines Masters, the intercontinental series of Show Jumping which opened in Los Angeles in October and continued to Paris in December in 2015. The world’s best riders and their horses will once again compete in CSI 5* classes, striving to become the victors of breathtaking competitions. With Germany’s Marco Kutscher and Van Gogh Page 52 having won the opening round at the Longines Masters of Los Angeles and Patrice Delaveau powering Lacrimoso 3 HDC home in the Longines Grand Prix in Paris, the competition between the world’s top show jumpers is now wide open for the last leg in Hong Kong. A repeat of his Paris win in Hong Kong will earn the French star a Bonus of 500,000 euros, leading him on his way to win the Masters Grand Slam Super Bonus, while Marco Kutscher could collect a 250,000 euro bonus for two non-successive victories.

“Race of the Riders” where Hong Kong’s best jockeys will challenge the world’s best Show Jumpers! Accompanying the star horses on the international jumping circuit, eight horses from the Chantilly Polo Club will be flown out to Hong Kong at the start of February. They will take part in an arena-polo demonstration tournament: the Shanghai Tang Polo Cup. Polo was discovered by the English in India in the 19th century and imported back to England with English rules. It is normally played outside on a 275m by 145m (10-acre) grass field, but there is a more “packagable” version of polo, played on a sand surface that is both smaller and closer to the spectators. Whereas the full version of polo is played by two teams of four, arena polo involves two teams of two players and has simplified rules to make it more accessible to a wider public. It’s an ideal format for a thrill- seeking audience that has never watched polo before! The games will be fast-paced, dynamic and spectacular to watch, especially as the players from 3 continents who will be in Hong Kong are all hugely talented professionals: the French no. 1 and six goaler, Brieuc Rigaux, the Australian six goaler, Dirk Gould, winner, among other victories, of the Al Habtoor Royal Windsor this year, Great Britain’s Malcolm Borwick (six goaler) and Nico Curto, the Argentinean five goaler, a professional player who is very much involved in polo in this part of Asia. The players will battle it out in four periods (called chukkers in polo) of 4 minutes each. With stoppage time and changes of horse, each chukker will last around 30 minutes.
