VIDAUBAN, France, June 19–German-based U.S. rider Catherine Haddad on Cadillac won the Grand Prix Special at the Vidauban CDI3* in France and placed second in the Grand Prix.CH-VID

With a score of 70.60 per cent, Haddad and Cadillac won their sixth Grand Prix of the year.

“Cadillac was much more relaxed at this horse show than he was in Cannes,” said Haddad of her ride at the Exquis World Dressage Masters a week earlier. “He really enjoyed himself tonight.” The judges awarded high scores for the elastic, enthusiastic passage and well balanced pirouettes of Haddad’s 12-year-old Danish gelding.

This is the first year that the annual jumping show at Vidauban included international dressage in its show schedule.

It was held at the the beautiful stables of Bernadette Brune–Domaine Equestre des Grand Pins– in the vineyards of Provence.

Asked about her favorite part of the Cannes-Vidauban tour Haddad said, “You can’t beat 10 days spent with lovely wines, good friends and a win in the Grand Prix Special!”
