HEATHER BLITZ AND PARAGON BACK TO WINNING WAYS AT SAUGERTIES

First in Grand Prix Special and Second in Grand Prix at 

Their First Spring Show of the Season

 

Medfield, Massachusetts, USA. May 19, 2014

 

Pan American Gold Medalist Heather Blitz has returned to the winner's circle with her 11 year old Danish Warmblood gelding Paragon (Don Schufro x Pari Lord - Loran). The partnership won the FEI Test of Choice for their Grand Prix Special with a score of 73.5% following their second place in the FEI Test of Choice for their Grand Prix on 71.1% during the Saugerties Show at HITS on the Hudson in New York State on May 17-18, 2014. 

 

Paragon has been campaigned lightly this past winter in Florida to focus on his training and he did not disappoint as they consolidated their movements to kick off the spring season.  

 

"It was great to be able to practice the Grand Prix with less pressure," noted Blitz.  "Also, the weather was idyllic which always helps. We've past a milestone in our partnership since April and his connection is totally different now. He's much freer to move in his body and more on the aids.  My coach and mentor Mary Wanless has helped me figure some things about using my lower abdominals to get his wither in a better place and it's been working like magic."

 

The pair also have the benefit of a new saddle by Custom Saddlery. "which Paragon loves so I'm excited about our upcoming shows now. My priority at those selected shows will always be good footing," added Blitz who is the Head Trainer at Cutler Farm Dressage, MA.
