Medfield, Massachusetts, USA. September 22, 2014

Pan American Gold Medalist Heather Blitz continued her winning form at the New England Dressage Festival (NEDA) Fall Festival at Saugerties, NY from September 18-21, 2014. Riding her own 11 year old Danish Warmblood gelding Paragon (Don Schufro – Pari Lord x Loran), the pair headed a field of 20 entries to win the Grand Prix with a score of 72.55%. This is the fourth consecutive score above 71% at Grand Prix for Blitz’ 2011 Pan American team gold and individual silver medal partner who was also the 2012 London Olympic Games alternate.

Also this weekend Ripline was awarded a prestigious Silver Medal from Dansk Varmblood during the breed inspection event at the breeder Richard Freeman’s Oak Hill Ranch in Folsom, LA. “Not many stallions achieve that status but Ripline’s strong performances in this year’s competitions have proven to the inspectors that he’s worthy of the title,” added Blitz.
