Dressage Winnipeg Junior Member Brooke Mancusi is making a name for herself after showing in the Adequan West Coast Dressage Festival Series in Del Mar, California. Brooke and her two horses; Wellknown, her 10 –year old Westphalin gelding (Wynton x Havidoff) and Extravaganza, her 9 – year old KWPN mare (Sir Oldenburg x Don Primero) started the series in the National show/ FEI test of Choice where they were consistently first and second with scores in the mid-high 60’s earning three daily Jr/Yr High Point Champions and one daily High Point Reserve Champion.
The second show Wellknown showed in the CDI earning a hat-trick of first places with scores in the mid 60’s.
