Laura Kraut Claims Second Consecutive Martha Jolicoeur Leading Lady Rider Award

RED MILLS and Foran Equine rider Laura Kraut claimed her second consecutive Martha Jolicoeur Leading Lady Rider Award on Sunday, January 31, during week three of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, FL.

Kraut was the highest-placed female rider in both the $37,000 FEI Adequan® WEF Challenge Round 3 held Friday and Sunday’s $137,000 CSI3* NetJets Grand Prix. The U.S. Olympic team gold medalist rode Confu, a 14-year-old Holsteiner gelding (Contact Me x Cambridge) owned by St. Bride’s Farm, to a second-place finish in the WEF Challenge Cup and produced the fastest four-fault effort to finish fifth in the Grand Prix.

“I’m thrilled to win this award a second week in a row,” said Kraut. “It’s quite an achievement. I always aspire to win the Leading Lady Rider title but having it happen twice in a row is a great accomplishment. Confu was wonderful this week; I couldn’t ask more of him.”
