Ontario, Canada (October 7, 2013): The Fritz Floto Awards go to the top dressage bred mare and the top jumper bred mare that complete their mare performance test at the age of three to five with the highest overall scores, free jumping, owner’s rider and test rider. This year's mare performance tests were held at four locations: Spruce Meadows in Calgary, Alberta; Crapaud Agriplex, Prince Edward Island; South Lane Farm, Vankleek Hill, Ontario and Parkwood Stables, Rockwood, Ontario.
Our judge from the German Hanoverian Verband this year was Dr. Ludwig Christmann. He determined that the 2013 winner of the award for the best dressage bred mare is London Reign (Londonderry/Rosentau). This grey mare is owned by Kyla McKinney and was bred by Rudiger Dupierry.
The winner of the award for the top jumper bred mare is Charmony (Conteur/Comic Hill) bred and owned by Gerrit and Ute Brinkmann of Equitop Farm. Both these mares were presented at the Spruce Meadows mare performance test. Our congratulations to these winners and their owners, breeders and riders.
