frst place in the FEI Young Rider
Individual Test with Palermo, by
Zeoliet out of Arona. Palermo
is a fourteen-year-old Dutch
Warmblood gray gelding owned by

is brilliant. He’s a hard worker who
gives 100% of himself.” Chase,
who trains with Cesar Parra, frst
began to enjoy dressage when
she evented as a youngster. After
focusing in the hunter/jumper
world for many years, she became

Grand Prix Freestyle top scores
of 74.275 went to Wizard by
Weltmeyer out of Pica who was
ridden by Adrienne Lyle. Bred in the
Netherlands, Wizard is a 12-year-old
dark bay Oldenburg gelding. “It was
quite a wild experience,” said Lyle. “I
was told the crowd gets rowdy but I
had no idea that they cheer during the
ride. Although Wizard was wound up
at the beginning, he tried to stay with
me and he was able to stay relaxed
through the ride.”
