With an already impressive array of highlights to her career, including the 2009 Central American and 2010 Pan American Games, trainer Samira Uemeura of Brazil added a Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award to that list while showing a handsome string of young talent at the Wellington Classic Dressage Sunshine Challenge, held in conjunction with the World Dressage Masters, January 24-27, in West Palm Beach, FL. I’ve been living in Wellington for about three years, this was the place to compete. I have some wonderful new young horses and sponsors. I cannot complain,” said the easy going and gracious Uemeura, whose stable of dressage talent includes showing her own eight year-old gelding, Tamarindo.
Underlining the very attitude epitomized by the tenets of good sportsmanship and horsemanship, the newly-minted Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award winner shared the secret to her success: “Stay determined. Believe in yourself and don’t give up on your dreams. Sometimes, things won’t go your way. But tomorrow is another day.”
The Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award included a $100 gift certificate towards Premier Equestrian’s deep catalog of trusted dressage supplies. Since 2000, Premier Equestrian has offered dressage arenas built from quality PVC materials, and top of the line Made in America products at affordable prices.
