The U.S. Equestrian Federation announced Friday the athlete/horse combinations who will be competing at the Perrigo CPEDI3* at Week 9 of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, March 11-13, in Wellington, Florida.
The following athletes and horses have been selected to the 2022 Perrigo CPEDI3* at AGDF 9 and are listed in alphabetical order:
• Beatrice de Lavalette (Loxahatchee, Florida) and Clarc, a 15-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding owned by Elizabeth and Nicolas de Lavalette
• Rebecca Hart (Loxahatchee, Florida) and Fortune 500, a 12-year-old Oldenburg gelding owned by Rowan O’Riley
• Kate Shoemaker (Wellington, Florida) and Solitaer 40, a 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding owned by Kate, Craig and Deena Shoemaker
All three of these athletes were on the Tokyo Paralympic Team that brought home team bronze last summer.
Also this weekend, spectators are invited to celebrate and support U.S. Para-Dressage athletes and programs with a special screening of “ParaGold,” a new documentary that follows four para-dressage athletes as they work toward their Paralympic goals. The screening will take place at 4:30 p.m. March 13 at Movies at Wellington, followed by a Q&A session and cocktail reception with the athletes and “ParaGold” director Ron Davis. This private event is a USET Foundation benefit for the U.S. Para-Dressage Team. Learn more and reserve your tickets at www.uset.org/paragold-screening-registration.
