LEXINGTON, Ky. — Legolas 92, the 12-year-old, 17-hand Westfalen gelding ridden by Steffen Peters in the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, has been named this year’s Adequan/USDF Grand Prix Horse of the Year.

Legolas, whose median score of 75.451 percent made him the top horse in the U.S. competing at this level, is the recipient of the USDF’s highest honor for the third straight year. He is owned by Akiko Yamazaki’s Four Winds Farm LLC.

The award, recognized at the 2014 Adequan/USDF Salute Gala and Annual Awards Banquet, included a commemorative personalized plaque, an embroidered cooler and a gift certificate provided by Dressage Extensions. Also, Legolas is the recipient of the Colonel Thackeray Award and will have his name engraved on a silver trophy to be on permanent display in the Roemer Foundation/USDF Hall of Fame housed at the USDF National Education Center, located at the Kentucky Horse Park.

“USDF is thrilled to be able to recognize this extraordinary horse for his many accomplishments during the 2014 competition season,” said USDF Executive Director Stephan Hienzsch. “We also congratulate his owner Four Winds Farm, Akiko Yamazaki, his rider Steffen Peters, and the entire Legolas team.”
