SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, California, Mar. 26, 2017–Dawn White-O’Conor and Legolas won the Dressage Affaire CDI3* Grand Prix to notch the pair’s first victory since taking over the ride on the American Olympic team bronze medal horse.

The victory on a score of 73.780 per cent for Dawn of San Diego, California and Legolas, a 15-year-old Westfalen gelding, came in just the fourth CDI for the partnership since the first Big Tour event at the beginning of this year.
