Suppenkasper, the 12-year-old KWPN gelding that Steffen Peters is campaigning to be on the American Team for the Tokyo Olympics, has been named United States Dressage Federation 2020 Grand Prix Horse of the Year for the second straight year.

Suppenkasper and Steffen attained a median score of 76.149% to become the top Grand Prix horse in the U.S. in 2020. The median score that won the horse the title in 2019 was 75.696%.

With the nickname “Mopsie,” inherited from previous owner, German Olympian Helen Langehanenberg, Suppenkasper was also the recipient of the Colonel Thackeray Award.

Suppenkasper was on the U.S. silver medal team at the 2018 World Equestrian Games and qualified for the World Cup Final that was scheduled for Las Vegas last April but was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
