Wellington, FL – The excitement, fun and splendor of FEI Dressage Musical Freestyle competition – along with celebrities and thousands of dollars in prizes – will all take place at the 2010 Top Shelf Dressage Under the Stars Series premiering in January at the Players Club Bar & Restaurant in Wellington. Dressage Under The Stars will offer dressage enthusiasts a chance to sit tableside at the Players Club while enjoying top competitors and their horses dancing under the stars.
“We held the Dressage Under the Stars Series a few years ago and it was such a success that we are bringing it back,” said Neil Hirsch, owner of the Players Club. “We are stepping it up a notch and in addition to being able to sit ringside and watch the horses, people will also have the chance to sit on the balcony and enjoy a buffet while overlooking the patio and field.”
The Dressage Under the Stars Series will run every Wednesday night beginning January 27, 2010 through March 17th. Admission is free, and dressage rider and country singer Jenna Wyatt will host each Wednesday event. “Jenna has sung at the Players Club before and she is a very talented girl,” Hirsch said. “She will be the emcee each Wednesday night and we are really looking forward to it.”
International Dressage rider Shannon Dueck of Dueck Dressage, Loxahatchee Florida is looking forward to the events at The Players Club. “Dressage Under the Stars was an awesome event. It was fun to ride in front of so many appreciative fans at The Players Club.” Dueck said. “I am so thrilled that they are bringing the dressage back this year, and I will be excited to participate in the events.”
Dressage Under the Stars, sponsored by Patron Tequila, Perrier Jouet Champagne and Absolut Vodka, will not only feature top dressage competitors but also celebrity judges and guests. In the past, dressage judges have included Betsy Steiner, Oded Shimoni, New York Times Bestselling author Tami Hoag and Germany’s Michael Klimke. The Players Club, which overlooks magnificent polo grounds, offers a dining experience unparalleled in the Palm Beaches.
“The Players Club has a long standing relationship with the equestrian community, and Dressage Under the Stars is a great way for the Players Club to connect to the exciting Wellington horse scene,” Hirsch said. “Having dinner and watching horses perform and dance on the field is pretty special.”
