WELLINGTON, Florida, Mar. 17, 2022–Charlotte Jorst and 19-year-old Kastel’s Nintendo won the Global Dressage Festival CDI3* Grand Prix Thursday for the third victory so far this year in the ninth year of their Big Tour partnership.
The score for Charlotte of Reno, Nevada and th KWPN stallion of 72.326% kept them in third place on the rankings for American combinations to go to Europe for selection of the U.S. team for the world championships in Herning, Denmark Aug. 5-8.
Alice Tarjan of Oldwick, New Jersey on Serenade MF placed second on 71.348% in only the second CDI Grand Prix for the adult amateur rider and the nine-year-old American-bred Hanoverian mare. Serenade is one of several horses she found as youngsters and is developing for top sport, including Serenade, Donatella and Candescent competing at CDI Grand Prix.
Japan’s Kiichi Harada on Sir Galanto was third on 69.696% and a result to qualify the duo for the world championships.
“It’s unbelievable,” said Charlotte of the horse she has competed numerous times on both sides of the Atlantic including the 2016 World Cup Final in Gothenburg, Sweden. “He just keeps getting better and better. He was so happy in there.”
She said she wants to go Europe with the squad of about eight combinations for selection of the U.S. championship team. Steffen Peters on Suppenkasper and Adrienne Lyle on Salvino are ranked at the top. Sabine Schut-Kery on Sanceo the third pair on the Olympic silver medal team, is yet to compete since the Games although they have been in Wellington for the winter circuit.
Charlotte said this is Nintendo’s last international competition year and will go to her farm in Reno for her daughter to learn dressage and also to breed.
