GLADSTONE, New Jersey, May 18, 2017–The eight-year-old Monique showed off her gaits to be ridden by Jane Cleveland to victory in the Dutta Corp. Prix St. Georges Thursday, the first of three competitions to decide the United States Intermediate 1 championship.

Jane of Wellington, Florida and Danish Warmblood mare that have been partnered since the mare was weaned, were awarded 70.789 per cent for the win in the first championship for the pair to be decided by the highest average of the St. Georges, Intermediate 1 and Int. Freestyle over four days.

Adrienne rode Horizon  for 69,763 per cent for fifth place.

Jane, 53 years old Cleveland will ride Monique in the Tim Dutta U.S. Intermediate 1 Championships for the first Festival of Champions for the Danish Warmblood mare that was among the top qualifiers.

Jane, 53 years old bought Monique (Tailormade Temptation x Matador) after seeing a video of the Danish Foal Auction and thinking the mare was exceptional.

At this year’s  Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington over winter, Jane and Monique made nine CDI starts, placing second twice.

The small tour championship was the largest division with 16 combinations in the championships, being held after a break last year. The Grand Prix has only eight riders and horseswhile the Brentina Cup of Under-25 riders counted seven pairs.

The explosive growth of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida over three months in winter and an increasing number of Americans competing in the European Nations Cups in summer has had a major impact on participation in the Festival of Champions.
