Join us at ShowChic on Friday, May 9, 2014 6:30-8:30 for Shop Talk featuring an FEI judge's perspective! A native of Columbia, Cesar Torrente is an international dressage judge and an FEI level dressage competitor. He is the first judge to be promoted through the new FEI 3 * program. Cesar has had the honor of standing on the medal podium to receive the team gold medal two times in the Central American Games. He is a corporate lawyer by profession. Despite traveling the globe to judge worldwide, he maintains the precarious balance between his career and his passion for horses with apparent ease. He is known in the dressage world as a "rider's judge", because he knows what it is like to be in the judges box, as well as the sandbox we call the dressage ring. Best of all, Cesar exudes warmth and is most often found with a smile on his face. We are lucky to have him as a guest at Shop Talk! A special Thank You to Stacy Macleod.
