WELLINGTON, Florida, Feb. 9, 2019–P.J. Rizvi, recovering from a torn calf muscle, and Breaking Dawn won the Adequan Global Dressage Festival CDI3* Grand Prix Freestyle Saturday in the first musical performance victory for the pair that competed for the time in 11 months. Adrienne Lyle on Harmony’s Duval won the CDI3* Grand Prix Freestyle.

P.J. and the 18-year-old KWPN gelding that her coach, Ashley Holzer, rode for Canada at the 2012 London Olympics, scored 74.030 per cent for the win that kicked off the eighth year of Big Tour competition.

P.J., of Greenwich, Connecticut, joked that she dusted off the moth balls to return to competition and was thankful that Breaking Dawn was a forward moving horse because of her calf issue.

James Koford of North Carolina the Friesen Adiah HP, whose coloring grabs attention wherever he competes, placed second on 70.000 per cent. Jacqueline MacDonald Cuddy on Malcarat was third on 67.040 per cent.

Adrienne Lyle on Harmony’s Duval pulled off a narrow win in the CDI3* Grand Prix Special to give the all-American partnership a double victory and to add to a pair of wins on Salvino on the top rated CDI5* competition.
