Claremore, OK — Claremore, Oklahoma-based tack shop The Horse of Course, Inc. showed up in full force at the Green Country Dressage Classic I & II at the Claremore Expo Center this past weekend. The company presented The Horse of Course High Score Award to the eight top-scoring junior, amateur, and open level horse and rider combinations.
As an official sponsor of the local Green County Dressage Classics, The Horse of Course was thrilled to give back to the show. Show profits went to benefit the Bit by Bit Therapeutic Riding Program, the American Therapeutic Riding Center, and the Coyote Ridge Reins from Above therapeutic program.
The Horse of Course is based in Claremore, Oklahoma, and is equipped with a mobile unit that travels the country to present its signature High Score Award at elite competitions such as the Adequan Global Dressage Festival and Dressage at Devon. At the Green Country Dressage Classic I & II, the highest-scoring pairs each received an embroidered cooler from The Horse of Course for their excellent performance and notable marks.
First to win a blue ribbon and receive her Horse of Course High Score prize was Lily Rhodes and Details At Last in Introductory Level. Junior rider Simona Forsyth won with Eiresown Fenagh in Training Level test one, and amateur rider Emily Moser with No Cameras Please won Training Level test two.
Taking home the blue ribbon and cooler for First Level was open rider Claudia Coley and Dimetrius. In Second Level test one, junior rider Kailey Devore with Fauston NAF and amateur rider Holly Luke with Lust In The Wind earned the highest scores. Third Level test one went to Jonni Allen and FWF Princess Juniana as the highest-scoring open combination.
The Horse of Course concluded by awarding open rider Emily Miles and Floretienne for their win in the FEI Prix St. Georges. Emily Moser and No Cameras Please, better known as “Blake,” were thrilled to win The Horse of Course High Score Award, as this is one of their first USDF rated competitions. “We are having a blast, and meeting some really nice folks,” Moser said. “I’m so grateful to The Horse of Course for the High Score Award cooler; it is very sharp! Blake’s brow-band is actually from The Horse of Course— I love it and we get lots of compliments on it.”
Winner Lily Rhodes with Details At Last was also proud to be rewarded for her high score. Rhodes said, “It was really a great way for us to see how hard we had worked together for the past few months for the show. We were successful and had a great time. Winning the cooler was just the cherry on top! I'm sure I will be shopping at The Horse of Course again soon!”
