In 2009, Marco placed 7th individually in the Exquis Masters Five Star CDI and earned the high score at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDI with a score of 72.9% aboard Halbgott. During the Derby, Marco and Halbgott also won the Best Male turnout at the CDI jog thanks to his signature tweed jacket, crisply pressed pants and pastel shirt and tie. Marco was a repeat winner at CDI jogs during 2009, proving that he can ride – and dress – with the best of them. Marco is quick to point out that he can’t take all the credit for his dress for success image. “My wife and children give me input and usually have the final say on my outfits for the jogs.”
Marco continues to show, train and teach from his home base in Wellington, as well as promote the breeding of his stallions. To speak to Marco about breeding, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org .
