D Niro Gets Big Win For Brooks In Devon Grand Prix Special

Devon, Pa., Oct. 2 

You’ll have to forgive D Niro for being absent from the Grand Prix Special awards ceremony. It’s his first trip to Dressage at Devon (Pa.), and it’s been a little overwhelming.

Jacqueline Brooks rode the 12-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding (D-Day—Alitalia, Napoleon 625) to the win in the CDI-W Grand Prix Special on Sunday afternoon (66.88%). Although the pair has only been together since March, they’ve come a long way since then.

Padré The Mustang Brings A Taste Of The West To Dressage At Devon

A living symbol of American freedom knows no boundaries in his new career.

He was born an American icon. As a wild U.S. mustang he symbolized independence. Surviving wasn't easy in the rugged desert landscape of Palomino Valley outside Reno, Nev., but as a young colt he knew nothing but the freedom of the desert wind.

Until the day the helicopters came.

Nine years later, this striking dun stallion trotted confidently in the company of champion warmbloods around the historic Dixon Oval as the first mustang to ever compete at Dressage at Devon (Pa.).
