WELLINGTON, Florida, Dec. 11, 2020–Adrienne Lyle and the American-bred Harmony’s Duval won the Global Dressage Fall Festival CDI3* Grand Prix Friday while Yvonne Losos De Muñiz of the Dominican Republic on Aquamarijn captured the World Cup Grand Prix.

The victory for Adrienne of Wellington, Florida and the 12-year-old KWPN gelding was on  a score of 70.435% in the first Big Tour competition for the pair since mid-March when horse sports worldwide were closed down because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Duval is Adrienne’s backup mount to Salvino in her campaign to earn a place on the U.S. team for the Tokyo Olympics that were delayed to next July. Adrienne and Salvino is the highest ranked American combination.

Canada’s 2015 Pan American Games silver medal rider Chris von Martels on Eclips posted a personal best 68.543% in the second Big Tour start for the pair.

“My horse was better than I was today,” Chris said of the ride on the 11-year-old KWPN gelding,” unfortunately I made too many costly mistakes. However, I know what to focus on the the next time.”

Canada’s Olympic selection schedule starts next month with most of the country’s top prospects expected to compete at the winter-long Global Dressage Festival of seven CDIs.

Jill Irving, on the Canadian gold medal team at last year’s Pan Ams, and Arthur placed third on 68.218%.
