WEST PALM BERACH, Florida, Dec. 11–Australian riders based in Wellington, Florida posted a string of wins at two naional horse shows this weekend ahead of the intensive winter circuit with its lineup of 11 CDIs and more than $400,000 (€300,000) in prize money.

At the Wellington Classic Dressage Holiday Challenge, Kelly Layne riding her Raja, a 13-year-old Westfalien gelding (Royal Diamond x Evidora) won the Grand Prix with a score of 68.617 per cent and the Grand Prix Special on 72.813 per cent. Kelly rode on Australia’s team at the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany, before moving to the United States with her American husband.

Nicholas J. Fyffe, who moved to the U.S. earlier this year to work for Israeli WEG competitor and trainer Oded Shimoni, rode Tolstoy to second place in the Prix St. Georges with 70.395 per cent for second place behind South African Neve Myburgh on Accent Aigue FRH who scored 72.368 per cent.

Nicholas and the 11-year-old KWPN Gribaldi gelding owned by Judith Kingsford won the St. Georges in the FEI Test of Choice with a score of 71.974 per cent.
