Besting the two Brits who were considered the top contenders, Dartmouth’s Audrey Coulter ’15 won the $280,000 Adequan Grand Prix jump-off at the star-studded FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival in Florida last weekend, reports The Chronicle of the Horse.
The jump-off “looked set to be another Maher-Brash showdown, but 21-year-old college student Audrey Coulter surprised even herself by relegating the world No. 1- and 2-ranked British duo into second and third and claimed the day,” the Chronicle writes.
