WELLINGTON, Florida, FEB. 8, 2019–Adrienne Lyle rode Harmony’s Duval to victory in the Adequan Global Dressage Festival CDI3* Grand Prix Friday in the Big Tour debut of the American-bred horse.
Adrienne, an Olympic and two-time World Games rider for the United States, and the 11-year-old KWPN gelding scored 69.348 per cent with mistakes in both the one and two-tempi changes.
Jill Iriving on Arthur, campaigning for a place on Canada’s Pan American Games team, was second on 68.891 per cent.
Great Britain’s Susan Pape, based in Germany and riding Harmony’s Don Noblesse, placed third on 68.696 per cent.
The debut of Harmony’s Duval, bred by Leslie Malone’s Harmony Sporthorses in Kiowa, Colorado, gives the 34-year-old Adrienne three confirmed Grand Prix mounts–the others are Salvino that she competed on the U.S. World Equestrian Games silver medal team in Tryon last September, and Horizon that she has also competed on both sides of the Atlantic.
Adrienne joked that Duval (Rousseau x Riverman) is “always running on full cylinders but has very bad ADD (attention deficit disorder) that he’s easily distracted. He does everything he should do and does it well. He just has trouble staying focused.”
A $25,000 award from The Dressage Foundation will help pay for Duval to go to Europe this summer with Salvino and Horizon that Adrienne hopes to take.
Although Adrienne is competing Salvino in the CDI5* this week and expects to have time only to complete two of three qualifiers to go to the World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden in April she is hoping for invitation in hopes of joining Laura Graves on Verdades and Kasey Perry-Glass on Dublet who appear the most likely to fill the two places awarded to the North American League. The rules provide for such an option.
