Wellington, FL - March 3, 2017 - Olivia LaGoy-Weltz (USA) and Lonoir climbed to the top of the leaderboard in Friday's FEI Grand Prix Special CDI-W, presented by Peacock Ridge, at the 2017 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF).

AGDF 8, which runs from March 2-5, features the Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDI-W and FEI Grand Prix Freestyle, presented by Everglades Dressage; FEI Grand Prix and FEI Grand Prix Special, presented by Peacock Ridge, and the FEI Small Tour, presented by Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center.

It was a successful day for LaGoy-Weltz and her own Lonoir, a 2004 Danish Warmblood gelding (De Noir x Lorani x Loran), as they captured the title in the FEI Grand Prix Special, presented by Peacock Ridge, with a score of 71.608 percent.

The pair has had a successful week after Friday's win and Thursday's second place finish in the FEI Grand Prix CDI-W.

Of her ride, LaGoy-Weltz said, "He was definitely very hot in the warm-up today. He came out really cool, but then we got under the big American Flag flying and it cracked a few times, and after that we were off to the races. I was really pleased with how he settled, because he did get lit up right before we went in but he got his focus back once we were in the ring.

"We haven't done the Grand Prix Special much," she continued. "We haven't ridden it since last year really, when we were down here. I think he and I need to run through it a few times just so we know where we can add the power in."
