Wellington, FL. - Fashionable dressage boutique ShowChic is filling Florida’s winter equestrian season with stylish riding apparel, accessories, and valuable information about the equestrian world. ShowChic is once again holding its popular Shop Talk events this season. The dressage community is invited to spend evenings learning and socializing with notable figures of the equine industry at these events. The first Shop Talk of the season was held on November 18, 2014, and featured dressage advocate and rider Karin Reid Offield. Dressage enthusiasts and competitors escaped the chilly November evening to fill the inviting room at ShowChic in Wellington, Florida and listen to Offield’s equestrian insights.
Offield’s interesting discussion with her attendees focused on her unique journey in the equestrian world, including her purchase of the world-famous dressage stallion Lingh, experiences in international competition, and dedication to promoting the sport of dressage.
The Aspen, Colorado rider has an eclectic background in hunters, jumpers, equitation, reining, cutting, roping, and dressage. She provides lessons and training at her Brek-n-Ridge Farm in Harbor Springs, Michigan. One of the major points in Offield’s equestrian career was her purchase of the 16.3 hand KWPN stallion, Lingh. The world-famous bay has excelled in international dressage competition for well over a decade, and has helped Offield achieve many impressive wins and successes. Offield breeds Lingh, and is excited to watch his offspring flourish in competition as Lingh has.
Like ShowChic, Offield cares deeply about the sport of dressage and is passionate about promoting it and providing education about it. She is the Executive Producer of the upcoming documentary Harry and Snowman, which will tell the true story of a rescue horse who became a talented jumper. Offield has sponsored such prestigious competitions as the World Cup Dressage Finals, as well as countless other equestrian events and educational opportunities.
ShowChic was happy to have Offield as the guest speaker for the November Shop Talk. The event had an excellent turnout, and attendees enjoyed chatting with Offield about her versatile experiences as an equestrian. The Shop Talk also included door prizes and a chance for shopping through ShowChic’s original merchandise. As the engaging evening came to a close, dressage riders began to look forward to the boutique’s upcoming Shop Talks, which are tentatively scheduled to include renowned trainers Bill Warren and Bill McMullin, New York Times best-selling author Tami Hoag, Canadian Olympian Ashley Holzer, and Parelli Natural Horsemanship’s founders Pat and Linda Parelli.
