The US dressage season concluded with the $15 000 final in the international arena at Adequan Global Dressage Festival. Bianca Berktold and her 10 year old mare Imperial (Charmeur-Vivaldi) took home the win after a ride with a lot of highlights.

-" It's an incredible oppurtunity to go in to an arena like this whitout the pressure from the big CDI´s. I have had Imperial since she was two and I`m so proud of her today. She is still green at this level, but I think she has so many good qualities and I can´t waitto see what the future holds", Bianca stated after her ride.

Second place was Alice Tarjan with her Jane and third Ali Potasky with Inxs. Lövsta Future Challenge is all about giving young talents the best possible conditions. Tinne Vilhelmson Silfvén spoke about it on the press conference:

-" We want to give the sport of dressage a push, to develop and to grow. We want to make the step to Grand Prix a bit easier, because the leap is big enough anyway."
