Congratulations to Laura Kraut riding St. Bride's Farm's Baloutinue on their first win together! We look forward to watching the future success of this great new partnership.

𝐀𝐧 𝐄𝐱𝐜𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐍𝐞𝐰 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐩 𝐡𝐚𝐬 𝐄𝐦𝐞𝐫𝐠𝐞𝐝 𝐎𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐖𝐞𝐞𝐤!
Laura Kraut now rides St. Bride's Farm's Baloutinue, the speedy 11-year-old gelding Adam Prudent recently won the last CSI4* Grand Prix at WEF with. And, totally up to Kraut’s and Baloutinue’s high standards, the pair won their first Grand Prix together, the $137,000 Bainbridge Companies Grand Prix CSI3* on the grass Derby Field at Equestrian Village in Wellington, FL.

𝐓𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐛𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐓𝐲𝐩𝐞
“I’m just absolutely thrilled,” exclaimed Kraut. “What I always loved about him is that he reminds me of a Thoroughbred. He’s got a lot of blood, he is brave, scopey, and has all the best qualities that a Thoroughbred has. He’s just a fast horse. That’s the Thoroughbred type of quality because I didn’t ride a fast round. I did more strides than other people, but he’s just that quick. He lands and he gets away from the jump very, very fast, so I think that was where I got the edge.”

𝐎𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐇𝐨𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐬 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝
Kraut has been interested in Baloutinue (Balou de Rouet x Landor S) for many years, but never had the chance to buy him, up until April 3, right before Adam Prudent won the $214,000 Wellington Agricultural Services Grand Prix CSI4* with the talented horse. The Prudents approached Kraut to say that they would finally consider selling him.
“I’m fortunate enough to be very good friends with the Prudents,” said Kraut. “Everyone in the world has asked to buy him, including me many years ago. It was a great horse for Adam to have to go to the highest level, which he did and did very well, so when the opportunity presented itself, I was very fortunate to have an owner who was ready to step in and buy him for me. Katie and Henri [Prudent] have the utmost faith in him and think he’s one of the best horses in the world, and so do I. I can’t even believe it; I feel like the luckiest person to have him.”

Congratulations to Laura and Fleurette! A well deserved win - a long time coming.

Did you know why yesterday’s win was extra special? 🥰

This has been a class I've wanted to win for many, many years. I've had quite a few seconds, thirds and fourths, but a win always seemed to elude me. At the beginning of the week, I said, 'This is going to be my week.' I felt good about it.

❤️Thank you to the owners, sponsors and whole team who supports me everyday. This would not have been possible without you all.

Of course, thank you to Fleurette, for her passion and determination 🐎

Thank you for making it a day to remember. 🍀

An exciting evening at the WEF - Winter Equestrian Festival located at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center watching the Horseware Ireland $216,000 CSI4* Grand Prix. Ireland’s Conor Swail was second last to go and took the lead from fellow Irishman Mark McAuley. Last to go was Laura Kraut who put in an amazing round aboard Confu owned by St. Bride's Farm Upperville VA Piedmont Fox Hounds
Events at the WEF - Winter Equestrian Festival on Saturday, March 19 culminated in the $216,000 Horseware Ireland Grand Prix CSI4* during the “Saturday Night Lights.” WEF 10, also sponsored by Horseware Ireland, is the fourth week of FEI-rated four-star competition hosted throughout the circuit. At the night’s conclusion, Olympic team gold and silver medalist Laura Kraut (USA) took home the top prize with her long-time partner, Confu, owned by St. Bride's Farm. There were 32 entries that participated in the Taylor, Harris Insurance Services Children’s Medal 14 & Under on Saturday in Equine Tack and Nutritionals ring. Of those young riders, only the six with scores of 82 or above would return to test. The top six riders waited in the ring, heard their test, and attempted the test in reverse order of their scores from the first round. Eva Mackenzie on her own Demonia GS Z would be the last to test on her score of 88 and would hold on the top spot to secure the win. https://www.jenniferwoodmedia.com/triumphant-return-for-confu-and-laura-kraut-in-216000-horseware-ireland-grand-prix-csi4/

[RESULTS] Two 4* shows were on the program this weekend, located at the antipodes of each other. On the one hand Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) for the first World Cup competition of a series that will end next Saturday; on the other, Wellington (USA) and its ESP Holiday II. At the Diriyah Equestrian Festival, after the demonstration of the Frenchman Julien Epaillard in the qualifier for the LONGINES FEI Jumping World Cup Grand Prix (1st and 2nd respectively with the horses belonging to the Hécart family and the Ecurie Chev'el stable), it is finally the Scuderia 1918's chestnut stallion Togabo Z that wins in the major class ridden by Daniel Deusser (GER). Today took place the 4* Grand Prix in Wellington. 11 combinations started in the jump-off and it's finally...our member @Barbara Roux' grey Holsteiner who won the biggest ribbon! Congratulations Barbara for this success under St. Bride's Farm's colors! This is the very first international individual victory for Confu, still ridden by Laura Kraut (USA). #longines #fei #feiworldcup #beproud #joc #onlyforsport #proudowner #jumping #showjumping #horses #sport #rider #horseowner #wellington Photos : Stephex Stables - Xavier Boudon / Big Bang Marketing.
