Ashley Holzer in a League of her Own on Dressage night at The Royal

By Michelle Dunn, edited Claartje van Andel dressagedirect

Canadian Olympians Ashley Holzer and Pop Art once again proved they are in a league of their own when it comes to dressage at The Royal, producing a nearly perfect Freestyle test last  evening to win the CDI 3* Presented by Dominion Regalia, with a final score of 75.85%, more than six points over their closest rivals.
Holzer’s test heavily emphasized ‘Poppy’s’phenomenal piaffe and passage skills, including a piaffe turn on the haunches that took your breath away with its ease and elasticity. Last to go this evening and following Tina Konyot’s explosively expressive stallion Calecto V, Holzer’s test was the very definition of relaxed and refined, but never stuffy, harmony between horse and rider.
“I had him here last year and he was tense in the indoor arena,” explained Holzer following the awards ceremony. “He was so much better this year! I was a little worried today because I thought the crowd would be more electric, as it was very electric last year. I warmed up quite a bit and the crowd was not so electric this time, so I said ‘okay buddy, you really gotta kick now!’

Stephen Clarke, President of the Ground Jury, explained that in the Grand Prix, everyone was a little nervous and unsure of the ring and the crowd, while this Freestyle evening they all came into the ring relaxed and ready to put on a show. Holzer impressed him most though with the harmony and comfortable relationship she has with her long-time partner, Pop Art.
“The partnership they have is the most unique and perhaps perfect,” Clarke related. “The harmony mark goes up very, very high. Technically her piaffe scores and marks for transitions are also very high. You don’t often see quality like that. Of course there is always room for improvement but the nice thing about Ashley’s horse is he does nothing wrong. She has really big highlights and these things count for a lot of marks.”
 
Crowd-favourite and long-time competitor at The Royal, Jacqueline Brooks, rode her second horse Balmoral this Freestyle evening, debuting him among stiff company. The pair finished fourth overall. Stephen Clarke expressed the sport needs more riders like Brooks.
“Jacquie is one of the best ambassadors we have for the sport. She knows how to produce a Freestyle and she knows how to ride to music. The audience really appreciates what she does and they love her. That’s good for us and good for the sport.”

Second place went to Tina Konyot of Conneticut with her ultra-expressive Danish Warmblood stallion Calecto V. Third went to Denielle Gallagher-Legriffon who put in a lovely test with her elegant and classically put together Russian-bred stallion Abrikos.

Vision Dover excites Canada
The big news in dressage circles in Canada also is the coming on board of new Team Advisor and Coach, guru Robert Dover. Holzer was not the only rider to gush with excitement when discussing the next few months and the plans Dover has for the Canadian contingent.
“I am thrilled about our new coach Robert Dover. He has vision and has made Canadians sit up and realize what great riders, horses, coaches and sponsors we have. We haven’t really taken advantage of the great people we have available to us in this country before now. He stood in front of us today and said he is 250% for us. If we need him somewhere, he will go there. And he expects the same level of commitment and focus from Canada’s riders. I think it’s about time that we had a coach that pushes us to the next level. We are not trying to be sixth in the world, we want a medal. So let’s behave than like we are out to get a medal!”
 
More highlights to come at Royal Horse Show
While dressage is over now at the Royal’s, this year’s Royal Horse Show runs through Sunday afternoon and two of the biggest show jumping classes are yet to come. Tonight’s $50,000 Weston Canadian Open and Saturday’s $75,000 Ricoh Big Ben Challenge will afford premium points to those chasing the Leading Rider awards, while Saturday afternoon’s Canine-Equine Challenge is one of the family-highlights of the Royal and always proves great fun and entertainment for all ages. By the time the competition ends, nearly $750,000 will have been awarded in prize money, making The Royal the most prestigious and hotly contested event of the season.
