CDI-W Wellington: Suzan Pape and Harmony’s Don Noblesse win the G.P. Special
Suzan Pape (GBR) and Harmony’s Don Noblesse, a 2007 Hanoverian stallion (Dancier x Descana x Don Davidoff) owned by Harmony Sporthorses, ended their day with a score of 68.118% in the FEI Grand Prix Special.
“It was his first Grand Prix Special ever, so I had to help him a lot. He (Harmony’s Don Noblesse) was prepared on the movements and with what was coming. I’m very, very proud of him,” said Pape.
Pape also has Harmony’s Don Noblesse in a talent squad for up-and-coming Grand Prix horses with the British Federation, and competed him just before Christmas in the German Developing Grand Prix Championships for the Louisdor Cup at CDI Frankfurt, where the duo placed third.
“Maybe in the long run, we will do a bigger CDI or a national championship in England or even a bigger championship. Let’s see what happens!” said Pape, regarding the future of the pair.
Placing second to Pape in the FEI Grand Prix Special CDI-W, sponsored by MTICA Farm, was Michael Klimke aboard Djamba Djokiba, a 2007 Westfalen gelding (Damon Hill x Whoopy x Wessex) owned by Klimke, with a 65.980%. Third place was awarded to Christilot Boylen (CAN) and Drentano, a 2003 Hanoverian gelding (De Niro x Brenda Lee x Brentono II) owned by Deborah Miculinic, with a score of 63.667%.
