Wellington, FL (February 19, 2016) – Steffen Peters and Rosamunde, a nine-year-old Rhinelander mare (Rock Forever x First Lady, Fidermark) owned by Akiko Yamazaki’s Four Winds Farms, claimed another impressive victory with a 75.38 percent in the FEI Grand Prix CDI3* at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida. Their performance earned them the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award, which is presented to winning horse and rider pairs six times throughout the 12-week show series.
“She felt great today,” Peters said as he collected his blue ribbon. “She came into this show with some huge results from shows in California. There’s always that bit of pressure there, but she felt great today and probably was just as good as she was in L.A. I thought we had a very clean test. I saw a bunch of 8.5 and 9.0s in the test, which is exciting, but there is always room for improvement.”
Not only did he earn another blue ribbon, but he also won the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award. Vita Flex, a leading producer of equine performance supplements, appreciates Peters’ careful development of his equine partner, and proudly presented the pair with the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award for exceeding the fine line between good and great by winning their class. They received a bucket filled with popular Vita Flex® performance products and an official Vita Flex Victory Pass ribbon.
Peters next plans to work on Rosie’s one-tempis, and hopes to improve her tempo as well as strengthen her fitness level. He knows that developing the young and talented mare requires thoughtful attention. “At the end of the day though, we have to appreciate that they even do the one-tempis,” he said. “This will take a little bit of time, but there’s nothing wrong with a 75 percent for a 9-year-old horse. I’m very proud of her and honored that I get to ride a horse like her.”

The company is known for producing high quality products designed to meet customers’ goals.
