Fun in Olympic proportions! A few weeks prior to the Olympics, ShowChic hosted an Olympic predictions night with Olympic dressage riders Bent Jensen and Lars Petersen. Bent and Lars made predictions on which horse and rider combinations might win individual medals, as well as which countries might take home the team medals and shared their own Olympic experiences. Guests were able to make their own predictions and submitted them for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to ShowChic. Look for an announcement of the winners on the Sidelines Facebook page.
Hats off to Super Mom Carol Cohen who amassed a slew of sponsors for the Region 3 Junior Young Riders team.

Travel seems to be the key word this summer as everyone is coming and going. Shannon Dueck was out in California hosting clinics at the Western States Horse Expo on behalf of her sponsors Vita Flex. Word is that Lily Zilo is heading to the Netherlands with LionShare trainer, Endel Ots for a horse shopping spree. Meanwhile Cesar Parra was rumored to have visited Europe earlier this summer and has two exciting new prospects flying back to the US soon. And we also know that Choice of Champion’s, Allyn Maix is packing her bags and heading to the Dublin Horseshow in Ireland.
Stateside, we heard that trainer/judge, Lisa Hyslop’s husband, Beck (Red Barn) Hyslop took her to a real dive for her birthday in July. Actually the couple went scuba diving to celebrate! Meanwhile Tuny Page spent her 4th of July birthday with family in Washington state, while her homies watched the sky light up at International Polo Club with Marty and Marcy Freedman (Owls Roost Farm), Tim and Kim Williamson (Five Star), Carol and Rebecca Cohen (Two Swans Farm), Michele and Doug Hundt (Show Chic) and Christine and Erol Pinto name just a few!
Speaking of Birthday’s Equine Attorney Barbara Richardson was the victim of a surprise birthday party at Dance Hall Farm – the culprits were her son Justin and friend Sue Sands. Her birthday soirée ended late into the evening with Shannon and Lorne Dueck and Third Level dressage diva Deb Hilton the very last to leave!
