In the Markel/USEF Young Horse Six-Year-Old Dressage National Championship, Cesar Parra, of Whitehouse Station, N.J. and Sir Beckmann (Sir Donnerhall x Wichita), his Hanoverian gelding were third overall.
“I was very excited. He did everything I asked him to do. We have owned him since he was two-and-a-half and I just started riding him in late January. He’s a very fun horse; he goes and has great scope in the trot. The canter is a bit immature as he grew two links and a half in the last eight months. He is a lot of leg, so sometimes he struggles in the big movements,” Parra said, “The first thing that comes to my heart and mind is that I’m grateful I’m taking home a much better horse. He grew up a lot this week. I love him; he’s a warrior, but at the same time he’s very immature. This is still a very new relationship… I’m over the moon to see how much he has grown up. My hopes and dreams are really huge with this guy.”
