Brandi Roenick has leased Bruce and Jen Hlavacek’s Pan American Games gold medal winner Weltino’s Magic this season. Roenick, 17, won three gold medals at the North American Junior And Young Rider Championships. She has been living and training with Steffen and Shannon Peters for a year and a half.
Congratulations to Courtney King Dye! She found the perfect horse for her bid as a Para competitor at the Games in London. And “hats off” to Jane Clark who purchased the horse for Courtney. It is a win-win for everyone and a new discipline for Jane Clark.
Congratulations to David Marcus and Chrevi’s Capital who led the Canadians in a sweep of the top three places in the FEI Intermediare 1 at the WEF Wellington Dressage Nations Cup CDIO-3*, presented by Stillpoint Farm at the Global Dressage Festival (GDF) Stadium show grounds in Wellington.
Congrats to the Nation’s Cup Gold Medal Team comprised of Chris Hickey, Caroline Roffman, Shelley Francias and Devon Kane. This foursome made history beating out Team Europe to win the first US Nations Cup competition.
Global Dressage Festival was the place to “see and be seen” this season. The facility was up and running in three short months and has become the dressage hot spot. Spotted at the show grounds – Lily and Alex Zilo with dressage rider and trainer Endel Ots.
Tami Hoag is one busy murder mystery writer who just happens to be a talented dressage rider in her spare time. Her recent book, Down the Darkest Road, made it on to the New York Times Best Sellers list and she is winning on two of her horses, Lonestar and Baachus, in the I-2 and Grand Prix this season.
The premier dressage boutique, Sho Clothes has changed its name to ShowChic to reflect the fashion and style the boutique is famous for even outside the sandbox! ShowChic kicked off their new name by implementing an Emerging Rider Mentorship program with three super stars including the recently married Mary Cameron Rollins, Rebecca Cohen and Lauren Knopp.
Condolences to Carol and Rebecca Cohen, of Two Swan Farms, on the loss of two of their dogs. Lucky Heart, a German Shepherd they found along the road 10 years ago and Barkley, a sweet Golden Retriever, have passed on to doggie heaven. They will be missed around the farm. To alleviate their loss, the mother daughter pair has been keeping very busy. Rebecca has been unstoppable in the Young Riders with her horse Downtown, aka Daddy.
