Pettersson Triumphs in FEI Test of Choice Division at Zada Florida Dressage Classic

Wellington, FL – February 26, 2007 – Competition in the third day of the Zada Florida Dressage Classic heated up with a closely contested FEI Test of Choice division, where riders choose which test they will perform.

Earning the blue ribbon in the class was Marie Pettersson on Ommen with a 66.000 percent. The pair rode third to last and triumphed over Ed Borrensen and Beemer, who held the lead for most of the afternoon with a 64.417 percent and ended the day in third place. The second place position went to Lynda Alicki and Nick who rode a competent test and were awarded a 65.833 percent.

The remainder of the class was extremely close, and fourth place went to Betsy LaBelle and Routinier, who closed out the afternoon with the last ride. All top four finishers rode the Prix St. Georges test. In fifth place was Daphne Haagmans and Nimos, who performed the Intermediare I test to earn a 62.417 percent. Rounding out the top six was Heather Ward and Aegis Joris with a 61.750 percent.

In the FEI Grand Prix Special, the original class of five entries dwindled to two on account of scratches, but Tami Crawford and Markant put in a fluid test to be awarded a 62.533 percent, which earned them first place. Nancy Later and Alexis-D, a bay Oldenburg mare, were second with a 60.667 percent.

In the FEI Young Rider Prix St. Georges division, Devon Kane captured both first and second places on her horses Prins and Douwe, respectively. She earned a 66.167 percent for her first ride on Prins and a 60.000 percent with Douwe. Third place went to Julie McKean on Heslegard’s Stravinsky with a 59.500. The FEI Junior Individual Test was won by Julia Warstler on Integrity.

The Zada Florida Dressage Classic will conclude tomorrow afternoon. Competition will begin at 10 a.m. in Ring One, and highlights include a variety of freestyles, which are individualized dressage tests set to music.
