BURBANK — On the final day of the Mid-Winter Dressage Fair CDI-W/Y/J, competitors vied for top honors in the Intermediaire Freestyle. Young Rider Brandi Roenick topped senior competitors to claim the win with Nobel, a 17-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Rohdiamant x Hestella) owned by Tracy Roenick of Scottsdale, Ariz. Her score of 70.417 percent from judges Linda Zang (5* USA), Jean-Michele Roudier (5* FRA), and Eddy de Wolff (4* NED) earned the champion’s sash over Jan Ebeling, who placed second with 68.333% on Deborah Harlan’s Rosenzauber 8, an 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare (Rotspon x Shining Sun).

“My goal for Nobel this weekend was just to get him back in the ring, so I was pleasantly surprised with the result! He can be a challenging horse,” said Roenick. “I think it’s such good experience for a young rider to get into the open CDI classes to get a feel for what it’s like against the professionals.”

Finishing in third was Kim Elsner riding 13-year-old Trakehner gelding, Luminence (Leonidas x Willa), owned by Hilda Gurney, with a score of 65.583%.
Brandi Roenick also completed a sweep of the CDI Young Rider division with her own longtime partner, the 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare, Pretty Lady (Iglesias x Ivonne), winning the freestyle with a score of 71.500%.

“Since the National Championships last fall, we’ve come together as a team even more,” said Roenick. “We clicked so well this weekend and she tried her heart out for me like she always does.”
