L and Cesar Parra Sweep Small Tour At Dressage at Devon
PA, September 30, 2003 Dr. Cesar Parra and Horses Unlimiteds
Pik L swept the small tour at the Dressage at Devon show with
scores in all three of their classes hitting the definitive
70% mark. This hattrick continues an amazing season that has
resulted in more than 20 FEI wins at prestigious CDI shows
from Florida to New York. At Devon, a 72.333 in the Intermediaire
I freestyle capped off three days of showing that also included
a 71% in the Intermediaire I and a 70% in the Prix St. Georges.
and working with Pik L is such a pleasure, said Dr.
Parra. Hes extremely reliable and he loves to
show off. Combined with his natural suppleness and strength,
he makes a wonderful dressage partner. Pik L is an imported
Hanoverian stallion by Pik Bube II.
while blue ribbons are always appreciated, the Dressage at
Devon wins were particularly sweet. Dressage at Devon
is such a highly regarded show, Dr. Parra said. Winning
here is wonderful.
Ls owner Anne Whitten was also extremely pleased with her
stallion. Im always so proud of him, she said.
I get nervous before they go in the ring, but I know I can
always count on Cesar to deliver a great performance.
that Pik L has so conclusively conquered the Prix St. Georges and
Intermediaire divisions, the focus for the next year will be on
training for grand prix. He has a very nice piaffe and passage
and needs time to mature as a grand prix horse, Parra said
of his partner.
Parra is a USDF Gold Medalist and member of the International Dressage
Trainers Club. He trains for his own Piaffe Performance training
stable. He and his family split their time between Florida, New
Jersey and Germany.
