Steffen Peters left the ring in tears after his Grand Prix Special ride today aboard Floriano. Not tears of sadness or frustration, but tears of joy for a truly spectacular ride on June 17, in Gladstone, N.J.
“You don’t have too many of those rides in your life,” said Peters after he scored 77.24 percent to win the class. “He was so expressive. To be that supple and energetic at 16 is unbelievable.”
Peters said he didn’t change anything with Floriano, he just came out with an extra suppleness right from the start.
