USET veteran and chef d'equipe for the developing dressage rider tour this past summer in Europe, Betsy Steiner and daughter Jessie are here in Florida for the winter. They have filled the barns with horses and students in White Fences, the location of the Gold Coast Opener Dressage competition beginning today.
There will be much laughter in Florida this winter and of course some serious training with Betsy and Jessie on the scene. Let's see how awake she will be for her first ride of the day at 7:20 AM, in the Prix St George, sponsored by DressageDaily on Hilltop's Giotto, a Dutch Warmblood stallion by Jost owned by Steiner and the The Giotto Partnership.
After a long stint in California "Team Steiner" has returned to Florida where we still remember the days of training Lynda Alicki and the young and wild Gino! The organizers, East Coast friends, and those of us at Phelps/Hathaway welcome their return. Best wishes to all our clients for an exciting, successful and fun season.
Let the show begin!
