PALM BEACH DERBY RETURNS TO AGDF

APPRIZED PALM BEACH
DRESSAGE DERBY
Returns to AGDF in 2018
By Kim Beaudoin
This year, the highly anticipated Palm Beach Dressage
Derby (PBDD) will return to the hallowed Equestrian
Village grounds week eight of the Adequan® Global
Dressage Festival (AGDF) . Beginning on March 1, AGDF
welcomes the final CDI-W coinciding with the Palm
Beach Dressage Derby, an exciting event that features
four riders competing at Small Tour level with unfamiliar
horses to see who can ride to the best score after two
consecutive rounds .
An original dressage pillar in the Palm Beach
community for nearly four decades, the Palm Beach
Dressage Derby was rejuvenated at AGDF during
the 2015 season, and is once again considered an
exemplary competition
during the winter
circuit . Offering riders
the unique opportunity
to swap horses and
compete at the FEI
Prix St . Georges level,
the derby portion of
the competition is a
true test of accuracy
and rideability .
In 2017, Christoph
Koschel (GER) rode
to the win, besting
Mikala Munter (DEN)
in the final round,
while international
competitors
Christopher Von
Martels (CAN) and
Juan Matute Jr . (ESP)
also competed in
the class, but were
knocked out following
62 * 2018 ADEQUAN® GLOBAL DRESSAGE FESTIVAL

the first round . Koschel and Munter advanced to the
final round, with both riders piloting Wrazzmatazz,
a 2003 Dutch Warmblood gelding (Jazz x Madame
x Darwin) owned by Sara Hellner . Koschel ultimately
clinched the win with a score of 72 .588% .
"I have won the Dressage Derby of Hamburg, Munich
and Wellington and really love this contest," said
Koschel . "It was very special for me to win in Wellington
because of the fantastic atmosphere in the stadium and
the unbelievable audience . What a great night under
the lights!"
Each rider is given a five-minute familiarization period
with each of their rides, prior to riding an FEI Prix St .
Georges test before a panel of three judges . "I think it's
a great event both for
the spectator, as well
as the professional
riders," stated
Christopher Von
Martels, the winner of
the Dressage Derby in
2016 . "It's a great test
for the riders to sit
on a new horse, only
have a very limited
amount of warm-up,
and test your skills . I
think that it's a lot of
fun for the riders to
watch one another sit
on new horses that you
don't have a known
relationship with and
watch how one handles
that situation . The
spectators also find it
very interesting and
very enjoyable ."
