WELLINGTON, Florida, April 3, 2021–Alice Tarjan on Harvest won the Lövsta Future Challenge Grand Prix warm-up and was runner-up on Serenade MF Saturday, a day ahead of the final of the Global Dressage Festival series for developing Big Tour horses.

Alice and the nine-year-old KWPN stallion Harvest (Connairsseur x Ulft) scored 76.411% for the victory while the eight-year-old mare Serenade MF (Sir Donnerhall x Don Principe) bred by Maryanna Haymon in the United States scored 73.911%.

Both black horses are owned by Alice, an adult amateur who lives in Oldwick, New Jersey, who developed them from youngsters as she does with her other horses. Among them is Candescent, an 11-year-old Hanoverian mare, on which she won the CDI3* Grand Prix at Global Friday for the rider’s first ever Big Tour victory.

The Prix St. Georges Future Challenge warm-up was won by Marcus Orlob of Annandale, New Jersey on the seven-year-old Westfalen gelding Spirit of Joy (Sir Calypso x Sandro Bedo) on 73.146%.
