Great Showing For Louise-Marcelle Eadie And Roseview’s Decorum

“Ultimately, we’re aiming for Grand Prix,” said Louise-Marcelle Eadie, whose stellar 77 percent score in the USEF Young Horse Test for Four Year-Olds on Roseview’s Decorum earned the pair both reserve honors in the class and the Horse of Course High Score Award for week 10 of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival CDIW and CPEDI3* at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington.

For the black, 16.2-hand gelding owned by Judith Sloan, it was only his second show ever. “His transitions were really quite good,” Eadie said, with a mastery of understatement belying her own British roots. “There has been a lot to look at, but he stayed with the program, and overall, he has been staying with me.”

The pair had also posted a 73.20 percent score to win a Training Level Test 3 class.

In 2005, Eadie made her own transition to the United States, and trains with Anne Gribbons, dividing her season between Wellington for the winter and Westchester, New York in the summer.

The strong finish in the Young Horse test points the pair directly at U.S. Nationals as their next goal.

“He’s a beautiful young horse and clearly has a bright future. You’ve done an incredible job,” said Beth Haist, CEO of the Horse of Course, as she presented Eadie her with the High Score Award and prize saddlepad.

One of the most highly regarded dressage attire and saddle outfitters in Florida and the south, the Horse of Course has been recognizing the highest-scoring horses and riders each week of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival. “I’m super happy with the score and with accepting these nice prizes,” Eadie replied. “On a black horse, this saddlepad is going to look great.”

The Horse of Course has a complete selection of tack and apparel for the English rider: show clothing, stable accessories, training equipment, gifts, books and equestrian sportswear. Learn more at
