NATIONS CUP™

Seventh Season of the
Adequan® Global Dressage Festival

FEI NATIONS CUP™ CDIO 3* RETURNS
By Kim Beaudoin
The seventh season of the Adequan® Global Dressage
Festival (AGDF) is set to welcome back the only nonchampionship FEI Nations Cup™ CDIO 3* in 2018 .
The competition, which is the only one of its kind on
the continent, will once again be the finale of the 12week running circuit, which features seven CDIs and
two CPEDI 3* weeks in the heart of the world's winter
equestrian capital .
Beginning on March 27 and continuing through
March 31, 2018, a test against countries is the perfect
conclusion to the largest elite dressage show circuit in
the world . International riders from across the globe
are welcomed to Equestrian Village at Palm Beach
International Equestrian Center, as a plethora of
nationalities go head to head to commandeer points for
the FEI Nations Cup™ Series .
The 2017 kick-off to the Nations Cup™ Series in
Wellington, FL, set the stage for the months to come
for international competition as
the first stop in the series, and was
championed by a team of four horse
and rider combinations representing
Canada . The trail blazing mixed Gold
medal team was composed of
Large Tour competitors Megan
Lane and her own Caravella, a
2001 Dutch Warmblood mare

(Contango x P . Riviera x Riverman) and Jill Irving piloting
her 2002 Hanoverian gelding Degas 12 (De Niro x Rosana
M x Regazonni) and Small Tour riders Tina and Jaimey
Irwin . Lane served as the anchor rider for the team and
rode to a 70 .176% in the FEI Grand Prix Special, while
Irving trailed just behind with a score of 69 .588% in the
FEI Grand Prix Special CDIO 3* presented by Stillpoint
Farm .
"Having the pressure of being the anchor, I try not to
think about that and I just really wanted to have a good
ride . I do well under pressure, so I'm privileged that I
got to be in that spot . Coming out of it I was thrilled; I'm
actually still shaking! I'm really happy with Caravella,"
said Lane, following their victory in 2017 .
Lane who represented Team Canada at the 2016 Rio
de Janeiro Olympic Games, earned an individual Gold
medal in the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle CDIO 3*, scoring a
74 .550% . U .S . riders Shelly Francis and Lisa Wilcox earned
their respective Silver and Bronze medals for a spot on
the podium beside Lane in individual competition .
Small Tour champions Tina and Jaimey Irwin created
a buzz as they danced through the week tailing on
each other's scores, ultimately earning top honors of
champion and reserve champion in the Intermediaire
I CDIO 3* . Tina and her mount Laurencio, a 2007
Oldenburg gelding (Laurentio x Pasadena x Donerhall)
maintained a strong Gold medal standing throughout the
competition, ending the team portion on a final score of
73 .237% .
At the time, Tina commented, "I think it's a great
experience to be having these Nations Cups ." Irwin felt
the competition helped to prepare riders and horses
for championships . "It's huge for us to get together as
a country and have these experiences ." Husband and
team member Jaimey Irwin took silver with Donegal V,
