Wellington, FL (March 2, 2018) — With only one CDI competition under their girth, Brittany Fraser and Soccer City won the FEI Prix St. Georges event held during week seven of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida. Their 70.3% performance earned them the Triple Crown Excellence Award. Fraser was delighted with their strong performance and honored to receive the silver engraves plate.
“The trot work was our highlight especially the extended trots,” said the Canadian rider who took the 11-year-old gelding’s reins three weeks prior to the competition. “We had a good ride and I was pleased he stayed in front of my leg,” she said.
Later the same week the duo added another first-place finish to their record by also winning the Intermediate I CDI1*. The pair scored 70.971%, the only score over 70% in a class of 11 riders. “He is a horse with a lot of presence and judges like that presence because he is so beautiful,” she said of the chestnut Hanoverian.
Fellow Canadian Jill Irving owns Soccer City (Sir Donnerhall x Whyoming) and asked Fraser to begin riding the horse in mid-January 2018. “He doesn’t have a lot of international experience,” Fraser said. “Our goal is to get him out as many times as we can to get his confidence up and just show him the big international rings.”
The duo has been taking the competition by storm. On January 27 they also won the CDN Wellington when they earned a 78.824 to top a field of 10 competitors. To see more follow this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Icy11P6czXA
