West Palm Beach, FL (October 29, 2009) – Christy Scotch and her 8-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare Kontessa rode away the winners of the Intermediaire I class at the at Wellington Classic Dressage’s Autumn Challenge of Champions, held in conjunction with the USDF Region 3 Dressage Championships. The Intermediaire I class was sponsored by Equilite and Scotch took home a giant tote bag filled with Equilite products, including the award-winning Sore No More products and Botanical Animal Flower Essences. Scotch, who is from Birmingham, Alabama, has done most of Kontessa’s training on her own. “I started off as a cowgirl and then got Kontessa when she was four years old. My farrier helped me at my first show and we rode training level. We won the high score at that first show and decided we might like this,” Scotch said.
While Scotch works hard on her own, she said she has been fortunate to take lessons over the years with Jason Canton and Conrad Schumacher. “This was my second time to ride in the Intermediaire I and it was a solid ride,” she said.
Scotch, who is already a big fan of Sore No More, said she is looking forward to trying the other Equilite products she won. “It’s exciting that Christy already uses Sore No More,” said Stacey Small of Equilite. “She will love trying out the other products in our Sore No More family as well as our line of herbal supplement blends.”
