Thursday Video: Dabbling in Grand Prix Dressage

Doug Payne, wearer of many upper-level hats, has been dabbling in Grand Prix dressage with his 2019 Pan Am Games partner Starr Witness. This 11-year-old Dutch mare (Chello III VDR x Carmen, by Veneur) is already hard enough to beat in the sandbox — thank goodness tempi changes, passage and piaffe aren’t included in eventing dressage tests!

“The Ginj is gettin real!! Grand Prix here we come, throw in another 4*L this spring for good measure if all goes to plan!” 

Best of luck to this multi-talented pair.
