Steffen Peters And Legolas Win Rock Star Freestyle Award From Cunningham & Cunningham At Dressage Affaire World Cup In Del Mar

Del Mar, cost CA (March 28, 2012) – Steffen Peters is well known for rocking the Grand Prix Freestyle on his champion partner Ravel, and during the Dressage Affaire World Cup at the Del Mar Horsepark Peters was back to rocking the scores – this time on his new equine partner Legolas. Thanks to a top score of 78.225%, Peters and Legolas also rode away with the Rock Star Award from Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock, Inc.

Peters has only been riding Legolas since Christmas, and the Del Mar show was their fourth competition together. Legolas is owned by Jerry Yang and Akiko Yamazaki, who also owns Ravel. “We are thrilled that Steffen and Legolas won the Rock Star Award. It is a great thing for the United States that Steffen now has two horses competing at the top of the sport, earning such high scores,” said Sara Cunningham, of Cunningham & Cunningham.

The Rock Star Award at the Del Mar show was sponsored by Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock, Inc., located in Harriman, New York in partnership with Wilson Cunningham West of California. The Rock Star Award highlights horse and rider combinations that excel in the Musical Freestyle classes. The winners are determined by the pair’s music selection, choreography and overall presentation.

Cunningham & Cunningham was also a hospitality sponsor during the Del Mar show, sponsoring not only the Grand Prix Freestyle but also the Young Rider dressage class. “We awarded a beautiful embroidered cooler to each class winner and we know that Legolas will look stunning in his Cunningham & Cunningham cooler,” said Cunningham. “We were thrilled to be part of the Del Mar show, it is the largest dressage show on the West Coast.”
