Wellington, FL – February 21, 2012 – Lisa Hyslop captured the high score of the day at the Global Dressage Festival (GDF) 1 National Horse Show on Tuesday. Riding Rolling Stone, her 18-year-old Westphalen gelding, the pair scored a 69.342% in the FEI Prix St. George class. Hyslop, who owns Oak Hammock Farm in nearby Loxahatchee, FL, was pleased her horse and with the results of their preparation prior to the show.
“He is in great shape. You could not tell that he is 18-years-old,” said Hyslop of her German-bred mount that was imported to the US in 2006. “We trained a lot at home and 90% of what I wanted to achieve today came together. I am very happy with my ride.”
The atmosphere at the GDF National Show was much different than at the $50,000 Florida Dressage Classic CDI-W, presented by USPRE, which was held February 16-19 at the Global Dressage Festival. Hyslop found it appealing.
