SAUMUR, France, May 1–Indiana Lynn and her Deutches Reitpony Ossborne represented the USA in the CDIP in Saumur, France this weekend. In a field dominated by the reigning European champions, Antoinette te Reile and Golden Girl, together with a strong Dutch team, Indy scored 61.4 per cent in the FEI  Individual Pony test in her first ever international  outing.

Indy and Ossborne are based at Belle Ferme in Gex, France near Geneva but will be moving to Texas for a year this summer. Indy and Ossborne works with Carolyn Stickland, and also with Marlies van Baalen whenever she can get up to Holland.

Ossborne was the four, five and six-year-old young pony champion of France and started the FEI test level this year.

Indy offered special thanks to Kelley Stachon in the U.S. Equestrian Federation passport office who helped get all the paperwork through at the last moment even with a volcanic eruption taking place.
