WELLINGTON, Florida, April 5, 2021–Steffen Peters topped the Global Dressage Festival prize money earnings for the 2021 winter-long circuit of seven CDIs with more than 125 riders from 17 nations sharing in the total purse. A total of 597 combinations competed in Global CDIs this winter, a decline of less than eight per cent from the 644 rides in 2020 despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the equine herpes outbreak in Europe in early February.

Steffen of San Diego, California won a total of $39,425, according to calculations by dressage-news.com. Most of the earnings were on his U.S. team mount Suppenkasper that completed an unbroken string of 19 victories beginning in Wellington in January 2020 and running through to the end of February this year in the rider’s campaign for a spot on his fifth American Olympic team.

Yvonne Losos de Muñiz of the Dominican Republic earned a total of $34,950 for second ranking, all of it on Aquamarijn. Yvonne who has already qualified as an individual for the Tokyo Olympics also clinched an invitation to the World Cup in Sweden that was to have been held last week but was canceled for the second year in a row amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Günter Seidel of Cardiff, California tallied $25,600 in earnings to rank third in prize money on the Global circuit that along with the companion Winter Equestrian Festival at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center did not allow spectators and maintained strict coronavirus and EHV protocols that were successful in maintaining competitions without an enforced break.

Lindsay Kellock was the highest ranked Canadian with $17,300 in prize money, ahead of Jan Ebeling of Moorpark, California with $17,275 and Adrienne Lyle of Wellington with $16,800 in the sixth spot.

Germany’s Christoph Koschel, who has made Wellington his winter base for six years, earned $15,050, slightly ahead of Sabine Schut-Kery of Thousands Oaks, California on $15,000 with Katherine Bateson-Chanlder of Wellington in ninth place on $12,000.

Dongseon Kim of South Korea, the highest money earner in 2020, rounded out the top 10 this year with $11,850.

Charlotte Jorst of Reno, Nevada finished the winter with earnings of $10,885, Sahar Daniel Hirosh of Israel won $10,400 and Olivia LaGoy-Weltz of Haymarket, Virgina with $10,200. Alice Tarjan, an adult amateur of Oldwick, New Jersey, earned $10,150 and Kelly Layne, an Australian based in Wellington, $9,300.

Not all the prize money went to senior riders.

Canada’s Camille Carier Bergeron, 21 years old last month, earned $4,780 competing in Under-25 and Young Rider divisions, while American Under-25 riders Hope Cooper and Codi Harrison earned $3,285 and $2,970, respectively.
