Some assume that show season ends with the migration of the snowbirds to the North or to Europe. More and more professional trainers and adult amateur riders have learned the secrets South Florida. One secret is frequently Palm Beach County is cooler and less humid than the Northeast. The other “secret” is that in late spring, summer, and fall, the shows go on! There are ample opportunities to qualify in rated shows or bring young horses to schooling shows.

This past weekend, The Gold Coast Dressage Association provided an excellent opportunity for those who appreciate year round living in South Florida.

Held at the stunningly beautiful Palm Beach Equine Sports Complex, owned by Scott and Amy Swerdlin, the Gold Coast Dressage Association will host a second show there August 16 – 17th.

There were so many outstanding rider/horse combinations! Presented here are the three high score pairs.

About Eolo, he is a Portuguese Lusitano stallion that Jenny bought around Thanksgiving and brought through quarantine in Wellington, Fl. Jenny stated: “Since he has been here at home with me we have slowly gotten to know each other and are forming our relationship. He is unbelievably kind, willing and the first two shows/outings with him have been great. I’m looking forward to a fun future with him.”

Jenny is also showcasing two of her other horses and from appearances, she loves every moment. “How lucky to be in the midst of our countries top quality horses and trainers.

John Flanagan purchased Renaissance Lady from Highlife Farm in 2010 as a show jumper prospect. According to Heather Bender, “Renni is out of (sire) Pilox and (dam) Rikorella who is more known for jumper blood. She reflects this breeding with a wonderful canter that is already shows great potential for such a big mare at over 17h to collect. She also has a super temperament that is quiet, attentive and brave. Ed Borressen of Wellington Florida did a great job starting her and I have had her for two seasons of training and love this mare and her great attitude. The biggest difference as the months go by is she is finally getting stronger to match her size. I was extremely proud of her 2nd level debut scoring a 66% and wining her class along with her 75% in 1st-3. I think she has a very bright future and will be a great amateur or lioresal, otherwise known by its generic name baclofen , is a muscle relaxant inciting some people to buy lioresal online to compensate for the sudden  professional prospect, maybe we will see Johns wife Noreen in the ring on this beautiful girl!”

Leif sounds delighted with Tucci and the show opportunities:

“Donatucci- Donatelli x Contucci is a 6 year old Oldenburg gelding. I’ve had him since he was a 2 year old, and he’s proving to me why I bought him! I’ve had many people tell me “this will be a grand prix horse” or “there is no limit to what this horse can do”. I really believe this Tucci has what it takes to become a GP horse, and I look forward to bringing him up the levels. He also has the sweetest personality, always trying for me. I love that he is so calm and cool as well! We went to the GCDA show last weekend, this was his first rated show, and he acted like he’d gone down centerline a hundred times! It certainly helped that the whole atmosphere of this show was so relaxed and low key, so it was perfect to bring Tucci out for his first time. We rode in training 3 on Saturday, and received 1st place with a 74.4% and first 3 on Sunday, coming up 4th with a 68.8 %. He was tired for the second day, but still tried hard. I’m very proud of my horse! I’d like to say a huge thanks to GCDA for putting on find where to buy baclofen pills online – where to purchase your baclofen which are the top internet drugstores shipping baclofen from canada online? another great show!”

“I had to laugh at the end of our first test, when the judge, Sandy Chohaney, said, “Does your horse have enough chrome?” I laughed and said I couldn’t ask for more, as he had 4 stockings, and a blaze!”
