OTTAWA, Canada, Apr. 21—Brittany Fraser has been named the Dressage Canada Red Scarf Equestrian Athlete of the Month for March.

Fraser, 20, of Glasgow, Novia Scotia, competed on Florida’s winter dressage circuit earning top scores at Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDI W-Y and Wellington Classic Dressage Challenge II in the Young Riders Division.
