Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park Re-Opens to Rave Reviews


Palgrave, Ontario – The newly-renovated Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park opened its doors for the first show of the season, and Ian Millar wasted no time posting the first grand prix victory. The 10-time Olympian hailing from Perth, ON, won the $35,000 CSI2* RAM Equestrian Grand Prix rid- ing Dixson on Sunday, May 18, for owners Sue and Aerial Grange at the site of equestrian events for the 2015 Pan American Games. A total of nine horses


found their way to clear rounds over the first-round track set by Germany’s Werner Deeg to qualify for the jump-off. Three riders, including


Canadian


Olympic team silver medalist Jill Henselwood, incurred one time fault for


exceeding the 71-second time allowed. Conor Swail of Ireland, who had won


Friday’s $35,000 CSI2* Alberta Premium Open Welcome with Lansdowne, was first to return, posting a time of 44.52 seconds with the 11-year-old Dutch Warmblood stallion (Guidam x Wolfgang). His lead would be short-lived, however, as Millar navigated the track in a blistering fast time of 43.51 seconds with Dixson, an 11-year-old Belgian Warm- blood gelding (Vigo d’Arsouilles x Olisco). Five more horses would follow, including Swail with his second ride, Martha Louise. The pair was on target to take the win with a time of 42.73, but a rail down three from home put paid to their chances of victory. “Conor led it off with Lansdowne and


was extremely fast and clear,” said Millar, 67, who, on Friday, had finished second to Swail with Dixson, as well as taking fourth place with Baranus. “I took the lead from Conor and held it right to the end. Conor was actual- ly getting me on the clock with his second ride, Martha Louise, but then had a rail. My son, Jonathon, was double clear today, too. All in all, it was an excellent day!” One week earlier, Millar anchored the


Canadian team to victory in the CSIO4* Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ in Coapexpan, Mexico by posting three clear rounds – two clear rounds plus a tie-breaking jump-off, with Star Power. With three top horses, Millar noted that his string “is the best it’s been in many, many years.” Of his plans for Dixson specifically, Mil-


lar said, “His development comes along extremely well. I’m focusing on Normandy (site of the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestri-
