Wellington, FL - Before David Marcus officially entered the show ring for the 2016 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, he began his show season by winning an award - the ShowChic Best Turnout Award. Throughout the 2016 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, ShowChic is partnering with companies such as Omega Alpha, Kastel, and Cavallo at the CDI Jogs to provide various prizes for the handlers and horses who embody ShowChic’s passion for equestrian style and function. According to ShowChic founder Michele Hundt, ShowChic searches for riders who dress for success by incorporating fashion, flair, coordination, and uniqueness into their look. During the CDI Jog on January 13, David Marcus and his own long time partner, Chevri’s Capital, were worthy recipients of the prize. They entered the jog in smart style, and earned the beloved award as they passed inspection in flying colors.
The Canadian dressage professional Marcus was happy to win the ShowChic Turnout Award and its prize, which included a bag of products from this week’s Jog prize Presenter, Omega Alpha. Omega Alpha, also Canadian-based, produces natural formulas to enhance equine health and performance.
As Marcus prepares to compete in the CDI Grand Prix at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival this year, he feels as ready for success as he appeared to be on the jog path. “I feel good going in to this season! This is an Olympic year and we have some big goals. It’s a long road ahead, and this is the first part of the path for us.”
Like ShowChic, Marcus believes that starting out the Wellington winter show season on the right foot is crucial—right down to excellent presentation in the first CDI Jog. “There are two reasons why I think presentation is important,” Marcus said. “Firstly, we want to show that we are professionals. Secondly, we want to show respect to the judges and everyone who shows up to support our efforts.” These sentiments showed loud and clear as far as ShowChic was concerned, and the fashionable equestrian boutique awarded Marcus for the efforts he put into his jog appearance.
