Burbank, CA - On the final day of the Mid-Winter Dressage Fair CDI-W/Y/J, competitors vied for top honors in the Intermediaire Freestyle. Young Rider Brandi Roenick topped senior competitors to claim the win with "Nobel", a 17-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Rohdiamant x Hestella) owned by Tracy Roenick of Scottsdale, AZ. Her score of 70.417% from judges Linda Zang (5* USA), Jean-Michele Roudier (5* FRA), and Eddy de Wolff (4* NED) earned the champion's sash over Jan Ebeling, who placed second with 68.333% on Deborah Harlan's "Rosenzauber 8" (11-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare [Rotspon x Shining Sun]). "My goal for Nobel this weekend was just to get him back in the ring, so I was pleasantly surprised with the result! He can be a challenging horse," explained Roenick. "I think it's such good experience for a young rider to get into the open CDI classes to get a feel for what it's like against the professionals." Finishing in third was Kim Elsner riding 13-year-old Trakehner gelding "Luminence" (Leonidas x Willa, owned by Hilda Gurney) on a score of 65.583%.

Brandi Roenick also completed a sweep of the CDI Young Rider division with her own longtime partner, the 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare "Pretty Lady" (Iglesias x Ivonne), by winning the freestyle with a score of 71.500%. "Since the National Championships last fall, we've come together as a team even more," noted Roenick. "We clicked so well this weekend and she tried her heart out for me like she always does."
