Brave Heart Steps Up In The Snow To Top The HITS Grand Prix

Feb. 27, Tucson, Ariz.

When Bjorn Ikast woke up this morning, he took one look out the window, turned to his wife and said, “There’s no way there’s going to be a grand prix.” The snow he saw covering everything drove him to climb back into bed, resigned that he’d have the afternoon off.

Yet a few hours later, with the morning’s flurries melted and just a few rogue flakes passing through the air, Ikast found himself in a familiar scenario: accepting the blue ribbon for the $25,000 HITS Grand Prix aboard Brave Heart.

Michaels-Beerbaum Will Winter In Thermal

Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, three-time FEI World Cup Champion and team gold medalist from this year’s Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, will return to her California roots and spend the show season at the HITS Desert Circuit in Thermal, Calif.

Michaels-Beerbaum rides for Germany after marrying Markus Beerbaum, but that doesn’t prevent Californians from claiming her as one of their own, since the 40-year-old grew up there before moving to Germany in 1991.
