Wellington, FL – April 3, 2021 – It was Yvonne Losos De Muñiz (DOM) and Aquamarijn who notched another victory on Saturday, April 3, at the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF), this time in the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI 4*, presented by Douglas Elliman Real Estate, after riding to yet another personal best score of 80.745%.
“Right now I think I’m still on cloud nine,” said Losos De Muñiz after her performance with the 2005 KWPN mare by United. “The whole week has been incredible. As I mentioned yesterday, I am incredibly satisfied in knowing that the training is working, that I’m on and she’s on.”
She continued, “I’m thrilled where I ended up. I’ve reached all of my personal goals, and right now I’m exactly where I wanted to be going into this next part of training while setting up for the Olympics, so I’m going to go on vacation now! This season I made my freestyle more difficult, and there was a period of time once or twice after riding it that I have been tempted to back off and tone it down, but I knew that if I could ride it at home then I could ride it here. I just needed to figure out the amount of pressure where, when, and how, and today I figured it out. We nailed it, and it was such a cool feeling going down that center line, and I just wanted to cheer the whole way. It’s really an amazing feeling when you’re at that point with your equine partner; there is no other feeling in the world. It’s pretty amazing.”
Losos De Muñiz also credited the quality and atmosphere of the AGDF venue, saying, “The atmosphere here [at AGDF] is amazing, and while I know that there are other incredible venues out there, I think that this venue here offers us so much in every aspect. I couldn’t ask for a better place to compete throughout the winter.”
