WELLINGTON, Florida, Mar. 27, 2024–Adrienne Lyle, a two-time Olympian including silver medalist in Tokyo, kicks off the highly anticipated debuts of three U.S. team prospects Thursday riding Lars van de Hoenderheide in the Global Dressage Festival CDI3* Grand Prix followed immediately by Endel Ots on Zen Elite’s Bohemian.

Adrienne, based in Wellington, and the 13-year-old Belgian Warmblood gelding are scheduled to be first up in the 3* competition in Global’s international area at 8:00 am (13:00 CET), and to be streamed live by clipmyhorse.tv.

Endel, also of Wellington, and the 14-year-old Westfalen gelding Bohemian are set to start at 8:09 am (13:09 CET).

Helix, a 12-year-old KWPN gelding another newcomer to Wellington is also being competed by Adrienne with a start time of 9:27 am (14:27 CET).

All three horses were bought late last year by Heidi Humphries through her Zen Elite Equestrian Center of Ft. Lauderdale near Wellington.

Also making Big Tour debut and likely closely watched will be Marcus Orlob and Jane, a 10-year-old KWPN mare that owner Alice Tarjan rode to 11 straight victories at Medium Tour before turning the horse over to her coach.

Haute Couture, 12-year-KWPN mare competed by Katherine Bateson Chandler, will start in the CDI4* Grand Prix at 1:12 pm (18.12 CET) after long time coach Carl Hester came to Wellington last week to provide on-the-ground help.
