Tanya Vik was thrilled when she was Open Upper Level High Percentage Champion with Holy Wonder (Susan Jane Sutton and Tanya Vik, owners) after they earned 74.125% in Fourth Level Test 3. “He’s only been showing at fourth level for two months now,” Tanya explained. “He just went in there and did it like he knew what he was doing. It was really cool. He was very focused and relaxed and really with me. I thought the highlights of that test were in the canter work. He was very soft and fluid. We got 8s on both pirouettes, so that was nice because we’ve worked really hard on improving those. I also got 9s on Rider and Harmony, so that was pretty exciting. It was a really solid test with a lot of 7s ad 8s.”

Tanya and Holy Wonder, an eight-year-old Hanoverian gelding, have been a team for about two and a half years, ever since she imported him from Germany. “Susan gave me green light to go shop for a horse, so off I went,” she recalled. “I found him in Berlin in February. I was actually there to look at another horse, but I saw Holy Wonder out of the corner of my eye and decided I liked him. I rode him for about 15 minutes and bought him. He has a super work ethic and is about the nicest horse on the ground. He wants to say hello to everyone. In the show ring, he was less settled when I first got him but now the show miles are paying off. He’s more settled and acting more mature, and that has reflected in better scores. He was showing at second level when we got him, and last year he was third in the USDF rankings at third level. I’m hoping to move up to Prix St. Georges and Intermediaire I next year.” In the Upper Level Amateur, it was Julie Buckley and Sandor who were champion for their score of 71.538% in the Third Level Test 3 Masters.
