Everglades Dressage and Global Dressage Festival: A Perfect Pas de Deux
Wellington, FL (January 14, 2012) – Everglades Dressage, a premier dressage facility nestled in the heart of Wellington, Florida, is pleased to announce its 2013 sponsorship at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (GDF), one of the largest and richest international dressage series in the world.
Demonstrating their shared commitment for encouraging tomorrow’s champions today, GDF will host the Everglades Dressage Young Rider Achievement Award, presented to up and coming young riders who excel in the show arena and go above and beyond in their duty to horses and horsemanship. Recipients receive a dressage saddle pad embroidered with the Everglades Dressage logo.
“We are delighted to work with Global Dressage Festival to present and sponsor the Young Rider Achievement Award. It is so important to recognize outstanding young riders. They are the future of our sport,” said Bethany Peslar of Everglades Dressage. Peslar was a Team Silver medalist at the 1998 and 1999 North American Young Riders Championships before earning her USDF Gold Medal in 2003 at age 21. Winning the 2006 reserve title in the National Young Adult Grand Prix Championship Brentina Cup cemented her reputation as a successful USEF High Performance Grand Prix competitor and Young Rider supporter.
The Adequan Global Dressage Festival (GDF), January 22-April 14, is one of the world’s largest dressage circuits, featuring five CDIs, including a 5*, the first non-championship CDIO Nations’ Cup in the Western Hemisphere, and nine U.S. national events.
