US Dressage Finals
Gallagher Claims Second Finals Title with Training Level Adult Amateur Championship
By Jennifer M. Keeler, Yellow Horse Marketing
Bethany Gallagher of Nashville, Tenn. (Region 2) and her seven-year-old Hanoverian mare Fabiola had a great experience at the US Dressage Finals, held at the Kentucky Horse Park, held November 8-11, 2018 in Lexington, Ky. Despite frigid morning temperatures, the pair claimed the First Level Adult Amateur title on Saturday, and wrapped up their winning weekend with the Training Level Adult Amateur Championship on a score of 74.773%.
“It was really, really cold but she was so good – she’s just an amazing mare,” Gallagher said of her mount. “She’s so honest and accurate and tries so hard, plus she has great natural balance, suppleness, and is forward and steady. She’s mesmerizing to watch. All of her basics are so solid, and are really something we’ve focused on. We hope to put some muscle and weight on her, jump up to Second Level and maybe Third, and be right back here next year!”
