The World Dressage Masters returned to West Palm Beach Florida last week. Two with Louisiana roots were in the top 3 in the Grand Prix Special on Louisiana bred horses! Heather Blitz on Paragon, and Todd Flettrich on Otto. Both horses were born at Oak Hill Ranch in Folsom, Louisiana.I know Heather choose the stallion, the mare and was there to bring Paragon into the world. So exciting to see these talented riders living out their dream. Brought a lump to my throat. The venue was even better than last year’s, with the beautiful back lit screens and increased seating. Steffen Peters and Ravel won both the Grand Prix and the Freestyle again this year. I never tire of seeing this pair in the ring. Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro of Great Britain were close on their hooves however, only a few tenths of a point separated the two.
