Pop Art Powers Up To Grand Prix Win At Devon

Ashley Holzer and Pop Art faced stiff competition under the lights at Dressage At Devon on Sept. 28, but the cheerful chestnut rose to the top with his accurate and elegant test (71.25%).

The Grand Prix field was so accomplished that every one of the top six combinations featured a horse or rider that had represented his or her country in an international championship.  Courtney King placed a close second to Holzer aboard Idocus (71.04%), and Lars Petersen wasn’t far behind with Succes in third place (69.70%).

“He was super, the best he went all weekend,” said Taylor of the 11-year-old Danish Warmblood.  A few rider errors kept them from achieving an even higher score when Taylor rode her first canter pirouette at L instead of D, which made squishing nine tempi-changes in along centerline more difficult before her next pirouette.
