WELLINGTON, Florida, Mar. 29, 2022–German team rider Frederic Wandres completed Global Dressage Festival top top prize money earnings while 22-year-old American Benjamin Ebeling was runner-up.

Riders from 26 countries on five continents shared in the prize money for seven weeks of international competition in the 11th year of Global that also includes extensive para dressage and national competitions.

Frederic earned $32,300 from  seven victories in nine starts on two different horses. Included was the win on Bluetooth OLD of the richest event, the CDI5* Freestyle. He also led Germany to the team’s Nations Cup gold medal for the second year.

Benjamin Ebeling of Moorpark, California competed three different horses to earn a total of $28,550 at both Big Tour and in the Under-25 division. Among the horses was Illuster van de Kampert on which he is currently ranked fifth on the standings for the U.S. team for the world championships.

Laurence Vanommeslaghe of Belgium in her first appearance at Global earned $25,800, mostly for crowd (and judge-) pleasing musical performances on Edison.

Charlotte Jorst of Reno, Nevada collected $21,300, the bulk of it from competing her 19-year-old partner, Kastel’s Nintendo, that she logged four wins in six starts. She added extra cash for riding Zhaplin Landholt to win the Summit Farm Future Challenge for developing Prix St. Georges.

Sweden’s seven-time Olympian Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén who has spent her winters in Florida since before Global was created was fifth in earnings with $19,700.

Juan Matute Guimón, who rides for Spain but returned to the town where he grew up placed sixth on earnings with $19,000 with Germany’s Christoph Koschel, a veteran of Global, stood seventh on $18,700.

Adrienne Lyle, of Wellington, the U.S. team silver medalist on Salvino at both the Tokyo Olympics and the 2018 World Equestrian Games, earned $18,500 in four starts for four victories. The pair’s record this year vaulted them to the top of the U.S. team standings for the world championships as well as the highest ever result for a musical performance at Global.

Jennifer Williams, competing Millione that was the U.S. Grand Prix champion two years ago but is now 19 years old, and her up and coming Joppe K were ninth on the standings with total earnings of $17,885.

Great Britain’s Susan Pape, whose season is typically just two-thirds because of the breeding operation of she and her husband, rounded out the top 10 with $15,000.

Alice Tarjan of Oldwick, New Jersey, and the growing herd of international Grand Prix horses she has developed, earned $14,000 to stand 11th.

Ashley Holzer of Wellington on Valentine and Havanna, that she will compete in the World Cup Final next week, was 12th with $11,400, the same amount as Canada’s Olympic team rider Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu.
