FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 17, 2001
Leslie Howard of Westport Connecticut won the Grand Prix and the World Cup
Class at CSI-W Amsterdam held December 13-16, 2001, riding Higher Ground
Farm's Priobert de Kalvarie (1992 BWP g., Kimball - Dorothee de Kalvarie,
by Flugel Van la Roche).
Howard and her mount, fresh off their victory in the Grand Prix at CSI-A
Maastricht held November 29 - December 2, 2001, were one of nine horse and
rider combinations to make it to the jump-off in the World Cup Class. With
the advantage of the late draw she topped the second place rider's time by
almost five seconds. Among stiff competition, including Sydney gold
medalist (Individual), Jeroen Dubbeldam (NED) and Ludger Beerbaum (Team),
Howard succeeded in clinching the Grand Prix winning a Nissan car.
Alison Firestone of Upperville, Virginia and Limminka (1993 KWPN m., Topas -
Carelda, by Aletevr), were third in the International Jumping Competition,
jumping against the clock and fourth in the De Telegraaf Prijs accumulator
both held at Jumping Amsterdam.
