Wellington, FL- The team of Gretchen Omia-Pacher and Gabriel Armando took first place in Saturday’s Dressage Jumping Spectacular presented by Absorbine Myoplast at the ESP Wellington Dressage Competition held in the PBIEC south grounds.
The Dressage Jumping Spectacular is an annual tradition at the first WEF dressage and jumping weekend each year. It is a class that tests the rider’s versatility in a high stakes switcharoo! Jumper riders team up with dressage riders and switch disciplines. The jumper rider competes in a third level dressage test, while their dressage partner competes over a hit and hurry jump course. It is an exciting test of skill. This year, thunderstorms pressed the event into a two-day competition. The Dressage was hosted on Saturday afternoon and Omia-Pacher aboard Cochise won that competition with a 64.302%. Sunday morning the jumping phase kicked-off early and Armando’s fast ride on Marques DeGuillon put him in 2nd place in the jumping. However, the team’s combined scores from both phases of the competition put them in the number one spot and Omia-Pacher and Armando walked away with two Absorbine Myoplast dress sheets and a check for $4500. Well worth the exciting two day effort.
