12 year-old Belgian bred gelding, Maloubet (Skippy II x Corba) finishing
second and Francine Steinwedell-Carvin from La Canada, CA on Prentiss
Partners eight year-old Dutch gelding, Laddidor ( Nimmerdor x Ersina II)
came in third.
Five U.S. riders made it through the second round in the grand prix and the
top three riders all jumped double clear rounds.
Chef d'Equipe, Dale Harvey, was delighted, " It was an incredible horse
show, nothing like anything we have seen before. From the footing to the
presentation and general production, it was remarkable."
