Beezie Madden Wins The Mercedes German Master

Exactly one week after contributing to the success of the U.S. team which won the Nations Cup at CSIO Buenos Aires resulting in the United States entry into the Samsung Super League Series, Beezie Madden clinched the Mercedes German Master class in Stuttgart, Germany on November 21st. The New York based rider, who was awarded a new Mercedes-Benz, gave credit “especially for the jump-off” to her mount, Authentic, an 8 year old Dutch Warmblood gelding (Guidam - Gerlinda by Katell xx) owned by Elizabeth Busch Burke and John Madden Sales.

The FEI had officially announced the FEI Gandini Jumping Riders’ World Ranking which will be used to determine the riders eligible to compete at the Top 10 Final competition in Geneva, Switzerland, the first weekend in December. Madden has maintained her Top Ten ranking and sits in 8th position. She will be the second American rider to compete in the Top 10 Final since it’s inception in 2001. Last year, Leslie Howard, the only female rider, wound up with an impressive 3rd place finish in the Top Ten Final class on Priobert de Kalvarie (Belgian Warmblood: Kimball - Dorothee de Kalvarie, by Flugel Van la Roche).

U.S. Equestrian was formed through the combination of USA Equestrian and the United States Equestrian Team. The vision of U.S. Equestrian is to provide leadership for equestrian sport in the United States of America, promoting the pursuit of excellence from the grass roots to the Olympic Games, based on a foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare of its horses, and embracing this vision, to be the best national equestrian federation in the world.
