West Palm Beach, FL – Suzanne Ross-Armando and Euclid turned in a winning ride at the Gold Coast Dressage Association’s Grand Finale I show, held at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center. Ross-Armando and Euclid won the Intermediaire II class, sponsored by Wellington’s well-known dressage boutique, Sho Clothes.
“It was a really nice ride and I was very proud of Euclid,” Ross-Armando said. “Euclid is new at the Intermediaire II level, and this was his third time to compete in it. But he was right there in the ring with me and I was really proud of him.”
Euclid is a 14-year-old Wesfalen owned by Ross-Armando’s husband, Gabriel. Ross-Armando lives in Flemington, New Jersey. “Suzanne had a really nice ride and we were thrilled to sponsor their class,” said Michele Hundt, who co-owns Sho Clothes with Betsy Rebar Sell. “It’s been wonderful sponsoring classes throughout the winter show season. The competition has been tough thanks to hundreds of talented riders, and it really has been great to be part of it and to watch. South Florida is certainly the place to be in the winter.”
