Arlene "Tuni" Full from Hamilton, Mass. showed up at The Palm Beach Dressage Derby in Florida, March 5-7 to "catch ride" Allure, a Dutch gelding owned by student Patricia Zinkowski. With just four days to get tuned up, Full and Allure performed consistently in the Prix St Georges and Intermediare 1 USET Pan American Games qualifying classes. They placed second both days, to Mary Howard and Gucci in the PSG, and missing first place in the I1 by .09% to Betsy Rebar Sell and Wonderful Walden. Still they earned the most combined points, for the division. Not bad for a quick visit to Florida!
Full and Allure were no strangers to each other, having campaigned successfully for two years prior to the sale to Zinkowski. During the winter months Patty Zinkowski competed Allure in the amateur owner PSG, I1 division, and "had a blast" achieving a goal she has been working towards the past few years.
