Bethany Peslar Shows Consistency

Second place in both the Individual (65.8%) and Team (63.8%) Young Riders tests at the Heidelberg Cup went to nineteen-year-old Bethany Peslar of Wellington, Florida, riding her KWPN gelding Iwan (Rossini x Wanda). "He was more relaxed than at the first show," said Bethany. "The Individual test was pretty accurate, with a little mistake in the rein-back, but otherwise okay. He's light and forward and nice to sit." At the Palm Beach Dressage Derby the pair won the Individual test (67.5%).

Peslar's family is building a training center adjacent to the Palm Beach Polo Club and trainer Judy DeWinter of the Netherlands will move there in September. "We met about a year and a half ago and she came to visit," said Bethany. "It worked out to have a few sales horses, and then we decided on a partnership."
