Doug Payne and Starr Witness delivered a super performance for Team USA in Lima last week, earning team gold and a 4th place individual result.
The 8-year-old Dutch mare (Chello II x Carmen, by Veneur), owned by Doug, Laurie McRee and Catherine Winter, rose to the challenge of her first team appearance, handling the big atmosphere with poise and confidence. The pair was 7th after scoring a 28.0, then climbed up the leaderboard collecting just 8.4 time penalties cross country and turning in a fault-free show jumping round.
Now we can watch video of their golden performance!
A job well done — that coat looks good on you, Doug!
