Keeping Up With Kim
Kim Gentry traveled to an International Dressage Show in Colorado in mid-August and she wrote to tell us the news: “We had a super successful weekend at the Estes Park CDI** in Colorado last weekend [August 15-17]. Leonardo won the CDI Prix St Georges and was second in the Intermediare I. Golden Eye won the Intermediare II and was third in the Grand Prix. My young horse, Fraiser, had scores up to 80.00% at First Level. It was a great show and so far we are having a fantastic season!”
The Estes Park Dressage I, CDI** took place at the Stanley Park Fairgrounds in Estes Park, Colorado August 15 and Dressage II, CDI** was August 16-17. The show was a USEF Level 5 Dressage Competition. Judges for the show were: Janet Foy (FEI 4* USA, S Colorado); Lorraine McDonald (FEI 4*, S Canada); Mercedes Campdera (FEI 4* Mexico); and Paula Lacy (S California).
“We travelled 22 hours over two days to get there. Estes Park is at 7,200 feet so we travelled there the weekend before the show [to adjust the horses and ourselves] to the altitude,” Kim said.
“Frasier is owned by our new partnership C&K Dressage Horses. The business focuses on finding and importing high quality young horses from Europe through private contacts. We buy directly from breeders and private owners. Frasier was high point champion for the entire show with scores in the mid 70’s to 80%. He was the talk of the show!
“Leonardo is just seven years old and this was his first International event. I represent Australia so it was a thrill to have the Australian national anthem played in the awards ceremony!”
Kim also won best turnout and horsemanship at the CDI jog.

Leonardo: 66.7% Prix St. Georges- First
62.018% Intermediare I- 2nd
