Dressage Daily writes:
“This night is my favorite. I’m thrilled to have won,” said Jacqueline Brooks, winner of the Grand Prix Freestyle. She’s only been riding D-Niro since February of 2011 but has already shown him at almost every CDI in Florida where he learned on the job – all in preparation for the Olympics. “He came back from London a different horse,” she said. “I barely had to ride him. I just had to sit there and thank him.” What’s next? She’s set her sights on the World Equestrian Games in Normandy in 2014.
"The evening’s highlight, the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle, was won D-Niro (D-Day x Alitalia), ridden by Jacqueline Brooks, and owned by Mary Brooks Brookhaven. This brilliant ride before a sold-out audience was perfectly choreographed to all-Canadian music."
