Led by Kasey Perry-Glass and Dublet riding for a stunning personal best score of 77.440 per cent in their first Grand Prix in Europe, the United States took a commanding lead in the CDIO5* Nations Cup at Compiègne, France Saturday.

Laura Graves and Verdades, the 2015 U.S. Grand Prix Championship pair and ranked 13th in the world, scored 75.440 per cent for second place individually with Allison Brock of Wellington, Florida on Rosevelt on 73.920 per cent as the third score to count for a big team lead in the field of eight nations.

The standings after the Grand Prix: 1. USA 226.800 2. Sweden 215.040 3. France 213.660 4. Germany 208.500 5. Belgium 208.120 6. Great Britain 207.520 7. Netherlands 206.980 8. Switzerland 206.380.

At 28 years old the youngest rider on the team, Kasey and the 13-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding ranked 29th in the world staked an early claim for a place on the American team at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August.

The score of 77.400 per cent beat their previous highest result of 74.500 per cent set three months ago and was the second highest for an American combination this year, behind world No. 7 Steffen Peters of San Diego, California on Legolas.

“I’m in shock right now,”Kasey told dressage-news.com after the ride that was only their sixth CDI Grand Prix since starting Bg Tour less than four months ago. “Dublet was so honest today in his test. The bond between us is so strong and it keeps getting better.

“Feeling so blessed to have the support I have around me. I’m telling you the team atmosphere here is so good.”

This was the first of three competitions in Europe to decide the American Olympic team.

The United States led from the start with 1998 World Games rider Shelly Francis of Loxahatchee, Florida on Doktor scoring 71.120 per cent. The ride by Ali Brock of Wellington, Florida on Rosevelt secured the U.S. position atop the standings in the three-stage Nations Cup.

Kasey, who moved to Wellington late last year from California to focus on training with Debbie McDonald, widened the lead and the Americans never lost it.

Adelinde Cornelissen of the Netherlands brought more excitement to the competition with her ride on the 19-year-old Jerich Parzival that produced the third highest score of the Grand Prix, 75.400 per cent. The pair were No. 1 in the world but lost the crowd in 2012 to Great Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro.

This Nations Cup is the third in the first year of the official trans-Atlantic series that has been reduced to six competitions as Hickstead, England, a longtime prime fixture on the international circuit, pulled out. It will be decided by a team’s best three scores from the Grand Prix, the best two from the Special and the single highest from the Grand Prix Freestyle.

The final selection event for the U.S. will be at the CDIO5* Nations Cup in Rotterdam in late June. The other two Nations Cups are both CDIO5*, in Falsterbo, Sweden and Aachen, Germany in July.
