Wellington, Florida, USA – November 29, 2020 – The first week of the ESP Holiday Series concluded on a high note on Sunday, November 29, with two major classes at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC). Besides the Grand Prix CSI 4*, the $25,000 Holiday & Horses National Grand Prix, sponsored by Omega Alpha, offered riders another shot at prize money.
The order consisted of 37 partnerships, and riders had better luck in this class with nine duos advancing to the jump-off. Ultimately, Molly Ashe Cawley (USA) and Louisburg Farm’s Berdien topped the field after putting in a fault-free round in the jump-off with a time of 39.72 seconds. Ashe Cawley and Berdien were only the second pair to navigate the short course, and their time would stand.
Diego Vivero (ECU) cleared the short course in 41.41 seconds with Litho V/H Panishof, owned by DJ Horses, LLC, to claim a second-place finish, while Coco Fath (USA) navigated her Exotik Sitte to third place with a clear 41.75-second effort. The class ended with five double-clear performances.
