Canadian Dressage Showcased at Two Weeks of CDI-W Competition in Milton | Print |

July 22, 2011 — Two back-to-back World Cup Qualifying Dressage CDI competitions were held recently at Iron Horse Equestrian Complex in Milton, ON. The CDI-W Milton Summer Classic was held June 17–19, followed by the CDI-W Milton International Classic, which ran from June 24–26.  Both competitions were held in conjunction with Equine Canada Gold shows, making them very popular with competitors. At the CDI-W Milton Summer Classic, Jacqueline Brooks of Cedar Valley, ON won the World Cup Qualifying Grand Prix Freestyle.  She and her 2008 Olympic partner Gran Gesto (Grannox x Goldstern), a 16-year-old Oldenburg gelding owned by Brinc Ltd. and Anne Welch, received a score of 69.875%.   Cheryl Meisner of Blandford, NS followed close behind in second with Paganini, John Risley’s 14-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion (Havidoff x Statuar) scoring 68.850%.

The Grand Prix test was won by Diane Creech of Caistor Centre, ON, riding Devon L, (De Niro x Wolkenstein II), an 11-year-old Hanoverian gelding owned by Creech’s long-time sponsor Douglas Leatherdale with a score of 66.043%. Meisner and Paganini finished in second with 65.533%.

Creech and Devon L were also victorious in the Grand Prix Special with 69.042%. In second with 68.313% was Victoria Winter of Toronto, ON with her 2010 World Equestrian Games mount Proton, Neil and Cindy Ishoy’s 17-year-old Baden-Wurttemburger gelding sired by Patriarch.

The Advanced division saw a considerable number of entries, as riders were looking to earn scores to qualify for the Pan American Dressage team trials to be held in August. These trials will be a head-to-head format for the top 15 qualified horse/rider combinations. (The first will be held at the Caledon Gold Dressage Show Aug. 5–7 at Orangeville Show Grounds, followed by the final trial at the Cornerstone Summer Classic Gold Dressage Show Aug. 19–21 at the Caledon Equestrian Park.)

Tom Dvorak of Hillsburgh, ON won the Prix St. Georges class with Viva’s Salieri W, Augustine and Christine Walch’s 10-year-old Hanoverian stallion sired by Viva Voltaire. Tina Irwin of Stouffville, ON and Winston, Mary Ellen Horgan’s 14-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding sired by Whinny Jackson, were second with 67.763%. The two combinations were first and second again in the Intermediaire I class, with Dvorak and Viva’s Salieri W earning 72.851 for first, and Irwin and Winston close behind in second with 71.053%. The Intermediaire Freestyle saw their positions reversed — Irwin won the class with 73.325%, and Dvorak placed second with 72.250%.
