WELLINGTON, Florida, Jan. 9, 2015–Mariett, feeling better than ever despite being 17 years old, was ridden by Lars Petersen to victory in the 2015 opening World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle under lights Friday in the pair’s first show since their Danish team performance at the World Equestrian Games last August.
The pair scored 78.325 per cent, their best Freestyle result since last March, to claim the win over their World Games team mates Mikala Gundersen on My Lady on 74.075 per cent. Both make their homes in Wellington.
Sweden’s Caroline Darcourt, competing in a CDI in the United States for the first time, placed third on Pardon Magi with 72.700 per cent.
