Wellington, FL – January 26, 2019 – Week 7 of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) kicked off on Thursday, February 21, with a win for Kasey Perry-Glass (USA) and Goerklintgaards Dublet in the FEI Grand Prix CDI-W, presented by Helgstrand Dressage at the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, FL.
The pair earned a score of 77.217% to qualify for the “Friday Night Stars” FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDI-W, also presented by Helgstrand Dressage, on February 22.
“Today was a really good ride. I felt like he was a little bit tighter and tenser than normal, but it’s our second show out for the season so we’re still getting our feet wet a little bit,” said Perry-Glass of the 16-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding by Diamond Hit owned by Diane Perry. “The highlights were the piaffe and the two [tempis]. I felt they were amazing. The passage got a little bit tense, but he always does it so well that it’s such a highlight for him.”
Perry-Glass is looking forward to her freestyle test on Friday night. “I want to go out and have fun with him,” she said. “I love doing the freestyle, and it’s a chance to for us to kind of go out and dance together. I’m hoping to put in a solid test for a solid score, for hopefully another qualifying score for the World Cup, and just to have fun.
“The only [other] show I can do is [AGDF 8], so I’ll be doing these two [CDI-W’s] back to back. Which I think with him works perfect,” said Perry-Glass of her competition plans. “He’s a very solid horse and we focus a lot on physical health. I think it’s just going to make him even better for next week, doing it back to back.”
