I Adermie R 4 Gives Aaron Vale Wings in the $40,000 1.45m CSI3* Speed
The opening day of Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) CSI3* competition at World Equestrian Center – Ocala opened with a heartfelt victory for Aaron Vale (USA) and I Adermie R 4 (Den Ham Blue R x Namelus R) owned by Lori Osterstock in the $40,000 1.45m CSI3* Speed.
This morning Lori Osterstock passed away after fighting a long battle with cancer. World Equestrian Center – Ocala sends condolences to family, friends and the Vale family for their loss.
“It’s been an emotional day for everyone at the barn. While I was on course with I Adermie R 4 I got jumped loose through the last combination and I think Lori pushed me back on. She was my guardian angel and flew with us through that course today,” shared Vale.
When Vale entered the arena aboard I Adermie R 4, he was currently sitting first aboard his other mount Cristo Beech owned by Alise Carrico and Thinks Like A Horse. Vale and the 12-year-old AES gelding by It’s the Business x Cantero navigated a seamless round early in the order to set the pace at 63.67 seconds. “I was a hair wide from two to three on ‘Cristo’ which maybe left a little crack of the door open, but I felt like he had a super round.”
