SAN DIEGO, California, USA, July 19–A homecoming celebration barbecue for Ravel and his rider, Steffen Peters, was held at the San Diego farm Saturday night, two weeks after their historic sweep of the three Grand Prix CDIO classes at the Aaachen CHIO in Germany.

Peters and Ravel won the Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle CDIO, the first American pair ever to do so at the world’s premier horse show.

The pair will follow a “conserving” competition schedule from now until the Fall of 2010 to insure Ravel is in top form for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky.

More than 80 guests attended, with some staying until well after 4 a.m. Sunday.
