Mary Hanna and Sancette win Boneo Park CDI3* GP Freestyle

Rozzie Ryan had the Grand Prix treble within her sights after winning the Grand Prix and GP Special at the Boneo Park CDI3*, but a standout performance from Olympian Mary Hanna in the GP Freestyle put a halt to Ryan's clean streak.

Hanna and her Olympic mount Sancette were awarded a score of 71.625% for their freestyle test and finished ahead of Heath Ryan and Regardez Moi who were in second with a score of 70.725% and Rozzie Ryan and GV Bullwinkle who were third with a score of 69.875%.

Hanna’s mount will now enter quarantine in preparation for his trip to Europe where the pair will contest the FEI World Cup Final for dressage in Lyon, France. The combination secured its position in the final after winning the Pacific League World Cup Final at last year's Saddleworld Dressage Festival.

The Freestyle capped off a successful three day event which received high praise from both riders and spectators.
