'Where Everyone is a Winner'

An exciting new addition to the impressive class list of the Palm Beach Derby Series for the 2005 winter season is the Beach Derby Lead Line Series - Where everyone is a winner. There will be blue ribbons for all in the exhibition class open to all young aspiring dressage enthusiasts.

The place to be is Loxahatchee, at Equestrian Estates, Sunday during the noon break of the three Derby competitions held at the Horse Park, Equestrian Estates.

Expected to participate will be the next generation of the Wellington Dressage community, as well as some of the star young riders at the Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center.

“I can’t take credit for this idea,” said Mary Phelps. “That goes to Trish Schreiber, manager of the Zada Enterprises LLC. Detroit Dressage. We photographed their May show and the leadline class was the highlight in Sundays’ activities. I thought, we can do this in Florida, this is so much fun!”

When Phelps brought the idea to Evelyn O’Sullivan, manager of the Palm Beach Derby Series, she enthusiastically added the classes to the three shows, starting with the Derby Series Kickoff, January 15 - 16, at Equestrian Estates, in Loxahatchee, Florida.
