WELLINGTON, Florida, Jan, 11, 2020–Steffen Peters rode Suppenkasper to their second highest Grand Prix Special score Saturday to win the Adequan Global Dressage Festival CDI3* and put behind the American Olympic and world championship rider’s Grand Prix result two days earlier.
A crowd that included Suppenkasper’s owner, Akiko Yamazaki, greeted Steffen with loud cheers after the score of 76.149% was announced to wrap up three days of the first Big Tour competition in the world this Olympic year.
Steffen and the 12-year-old KWPN gelding that Akiko and her husband, Jerry Yang, bought as a prospect for Tokyo in July scored numerous marks of at least 8. The Special will decide the team competition in Tokyo.
