Shawn Harding & Come On III Win at ESP Wellington Dressage

WELLINGTON, Fla., Feb. 9--When Shawna Harding looked at Come On III four years ago in Europe she saw a future that no one else did. Since then, the pair have developed a bond that has become so special that the 17.2-hand horse has become Shawna's "world."

Together, they posted a score of 72.5 per cent in the Intermediate I Open at the Equestrian Sport Productions' Wellington Dressage that is the first in a series of three dressage competitions at the CN Winter Equestrian Festival presented by Zimmerman Advertising at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

In the Prix St. Georges on Friday, Harding and Come On posted the same score to place second although they were awarded a score of nine out of 10 for the entering halt and salute.

Saturday, Susan Dutta of Wellington on Manette DC were second with 68.00 per cent and Tonya Grant Barber and Nice Catch third on 66.75 per cent.

Harding, 38, of Aiken, S.C. said that heavy rain Friday night made warm up difficult while a jumping class in the adjoining competition arena created an "interesting" environment. The ride on the Danish Warmblood gelding was better than Friday.

Harding was working for seven years in Europe when Come On was sent to her for training.

"Nobody wanted to buy him," she said. "He definitely has a lot of personality, a lot of energy. Nobody could see what was in him."

She said she has developed a "special bond" with Come On to the point "he's my world."
