Winner’s Circle – Laura Kraut (USA)

“Bisquetta is only eight years old and I couldn’t be happier with her progress, especially here in St. Tropez! We were already second last Sunday in the Grand Prix CSI 3*, which was our second event at 1.50m. This week, I chose to put her in slightly smaller events and she is perfect, still very fast. I think she loves what she does. “
