Rosie Posts Impressive Score in Freestyle Debut


SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA – Even though Steffen Peters’ young star Rosamunde performed a Grand Prix Freestyle for the first time on Saturday, she looked like a seasoned veteran on her way to earning the unanimous win under all five FEI judges with an impressive final score of 77.750% at California Dreaming Productions’ Festival of the Horse order online at usa pharmacy! buy zoloft online canada. instant shipping, zoloft versus generic sertraline. CDI 3*/Y/J/U-25 in San Juan Capistrano, Cal. Utilizing stablemate Legolas 92’s recognizable David Bowie/Coldplay/U-2 music and demanding choreography, the Rheinlander mare affectionately known as “Rosie” (Rock Forever x First Lady by Fidermark, owned by Four Winds Farm) proved she was up to the challenge, including successful execution of double pirouettes, piaffe fans, and tricky transitions – all at just eight years old. In her inaugural freestyle effort, her score was just three points less than Legolas’ performance the previous week at the Capistrano Dressage International CDI-W, which earned Peters a ticket to the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Finals in Las Vegas as the top-ranked competitor in the North American League. Finishing in second with 71.450% was Jan Ebeling aboard another up-and-coming star in FRH Rassolini (Hanoverian stallion [Rubioso N x Sweetheart by Silvano] owned by Vantage Equestrian Group LLC).


Peters noted that his intention in using the freestyle was not to make the performance a game of “who rode it best” between his two talented mounts.  “I chose to use Legolas’ freestyle because I wanted to have another practice run before the World Cup in a competition setting – you can practice it at home but it’s just not the same,” explained Peters. “It’s still a bit difficult for Rosie, but she embraced it and was so beautifully with me the entire time. She wasn’t tired at all from these last two weeks of competing – she was as happy as ever, and I actually had to hold her back in the extensions a bit and say, ‘not yet’. We had a little mistake in the one-tempis, but the two-tempis were improved even from Thursday’s Grand Prix and her pirouettes were amazing, reminding me again of Ravel.

You simply point her in the direction you need to go, and she just offers it. It’s a wonderful feeling. Like I’ve said before, gravity is just a suggestion to her.”


Peters noted that next on the calendar for Rosie is to join stablemate Legolas in Las Vegas, where her growing number of fans can look forward to a seeing her participate in a special dressage performance during the World Cup Finals.

Roenick Returns to the Ring With a Victory in Intermediaire I Freestyle


Until earlier this season, Tracy Roenick hadn’t cantered down centerline in a dressage competition since 2005. But on Saturday she showed no sign of being out of practice as she and her elegant black Oldenburg mare Apassionata (Sir Donnerhall x Amelie by Friedensfuerst) decisively claimed the CDI Intermediaire I Freestyle victory with 72.625% over second-placed Susan Martin and Veto (KWPN gelding [Montecristo x Orka by Rubinstein], owned by Stahl Child Dressage, LLC) on 70.100%.


Apassionata recorded several CDI small tour wins in 2014 with Steffen Peters, but after a decade of staying out of the saddle to support her family and her daughter’s riding career, it was finally time for Roenick to take her turn. “When we first got ‘Pia’ she was feisty, and I didn’t even know if I’d get along with her. Steffen encouraged me to try, but when you’ve been out of the ring for so many years and then jump right back into a CDI with five judges looking at you as you enter the arena, it’s hard and you can’t help but wonder, ‘what am I doing here,'” Roenick admitted, adding that show nerves had been an additional best prices for all customers! buy priligy dapoxetine . free delivery, generic dapoxetine. obstacle for her overcome in successfully returning to competition. “The first two shows were a nervous struggle for me, and she’s a sensitive horse so she feeds off of what I’m feeling. Finally I felt like I settled down last weekend, and today I didn’t have a whiff of nerves – I could think about what I was doing without being overwhelmed, and Pia was super too. What a thrill not only to win, but also to get a great score from this judging panel. Today was really fun – who knew?!” she laughed.

Chamberlain Sweeps Young Rider Division, Vaughn Wins 16-15 Grand Prix


Last year’s NAYRC Team, Individual, and Freestyle Gold Medalist Catherine Chamberlain completed a sweep of the CDI Young Rider division with a win in the Freestyle with a score of 69.775%. With her new partner Avesto Van Weltevreden (Dutch Warmblood gelding [Gribaldi x Tevesta by Krack C] owned by Kimberly Pribble), Chamberlain is undefeated in her division this year and looks poised for a possible return to the NAJYRC in Kentucky for a fifth time.


“Just a year ago I showed him here in San Juan Capistrano at Third Level, and he’s come such a long way in a short time. He’s always the same horse in the ring as he is in the warm-up, and that consistency is one of the things that I think makes him a solid competitor,” said Chamberlain. “This was his first freestyle ever, but he was great and the music didn’t seem to faze him at all – it got him just the right amount of ‘pumped up’. I best prices on dapoxetine in nj, dapoxetine online cheap, price of online europe, dapoxetine 30 fast ship , buy dapoxetine online overnight , non prescription  made a brand new freestyle last year for my other horse Verdicci to specifically use at the NAJYRC and only used it once, so I decided to try it with Avesto and it worked really well for him. We tweaked the choreography a bit because he’s still a little green at this level, but he handled it wonderfully. I’m so grateful to his owner for this opportunity to ride him, and I’m excited to see how he keeps developing. He’s a very cool horse.”
