Wellington, FL
- Jody Schloss, 39, of Toronto, Canada had another banner day at the Global Dressage Festival National Challenge on Wednesday. The Para-Equestrian rider received the highest score on Inspector Rebus receiving 72.500% in the FEI Para Test of Choice class at the Stadium show grounds of the Global Dressage Festival (GDF).

Schloss rode her first horse at 11-years of age. She left the sport for a while, but then returned to riding as part of her therapy following her injury in 1996. She has only been competing on "Rebus" for one year and is classified to ride in the Grade 1A level, which is for the Para-Dressage rider with the most significant level of impairment. She trains with Jessica Rhinelander while wintering in Wellington. Schloss' mom, Gail, who was on hand to watch her daughter compete, said that Jody really enjoyed the show.

"She was very happy with her tests today and yesterday," said Gail. "She also appreciated that the venue was wheelchair accessible. It was very easy for her to get around."

Schloss has qualified for the 2012 Paralympics in London and is aiming for a position on the Canadian team.

Ilse Schwarz rode Gaye and Joseph Scarpa's Don Joseph to the second highest score of the day receiving 72.258% in the USEF First Level Test 3-Open.

 The next event on the GDF circuit is the $15,000 Wellington Dressage Classic CDI-3* and National Show, presented by Chesapeake Dressage Institute. The event takes place March 15-18 at the GDF Stadium show grounds and will feature the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle class on Saturday evening, March 17.

Results are available on the GDF website at www.globaldressagefestival.com under the link for "Click here" for dressage show information on the main homepage.
