Dover did not contest the Grand Prix freestyle, which was won by Werth and Apache with a 78.50 percent. Morse finished second in the freestyle with a 73.67 percent in her second show at the Grand Prix level with the 10-year-old Swedish stallion.
Other dressage athletes prepped for the Olympics this past weekend too. Spain’s Beatriz Ferrer-Salat and Beauvalais, the individual silver medalists from the 2002 World Equestrian Games, won the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Special at the Bern CDI, Switzerland. This was the 17-year-old Hanoverian’s first show in many, many months and his scores of a 71.91 percent and 73.40 percent put to rest any doubts that the pair will anchor the Spanish team’s medal hopes.
