Two time’s the Charm: New Best of Steffen Peters and Legolas in the Grand Prix

Only two weeks earlier, US dressage rider Steffen Peters and Legolas experienced a disaster: in the Grand Prix at the Global Dressage Festival in Florida they had the worst result in their entire career: 71,220 percent and place seven. However, now in Burbank, California, they performed much better: a result of 77,880 percent – the best Grand Prix result of their career yet. Peters told dressage-news.com that Legolas had been very relaxed, had held marvelous contact with the rider and had showed a strong piaffe passage tour. The major difference between the test two weeks previously and the competition in California had been the relaxed horse.
Second place went to Kathleen Raine and Breanna (71,280 percent), third place went to three times Olympic winner Günter Seidel and Zero Gravity (69,660 percent).
