Wednesday, February 8, 2017
Wellington, FL – Eager attendees filled every available seat in ShowChic’s dressage fashion boutique at the most recent Shop Talk event, which featured Triple Crown Nutrition Ambassadors and U.S. Olympic Dressage Team Bronze Medalists Kasey Perry-Glass and Allison Brock.
Perry-Glass and Brock took the evening spotlight in the Shop Talk’s Olympic Journey Q&A, sharing their unique experiences from the 2016 Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The two Olympians recounted stories from their personal journeys on the team, and a feeling of team camaraderie and support was evident as they recalled their adventures and accomplishments.
Through the popular Shop Talk series, ShowChic, an upscale dressage fashion boutique located in Wellington, Florida, provides a unique educational and social opportunity to the local dressage community. Shop Talk events involve interactive presentations given by an impressive list of headliners – from riders, trainers, and coaches to judges and clinicians – including outstanding dressage professionals such as Perry-Glass and Brock.
The Shop Talks are held monthly during the winter show season in Wellington. Triple Crown® Nutrition, the U.S. equine feed company known for its high-caliber feed products and scientifically-based nutritional formulas, was proud to sponsor the most recent Shop Talk.
In addition to the talks given by Brock and Perry-Glass, the Shop Talk evening featured giveaways from Triple Crown, including Triple Crown Feed products, which were presented to several lucky attendees by Triple Crown Florida representative Craig Bernstein.
As an official sponsor of the U.S. Dressage Team, Triple Crown is a longtime supporter of equestrian sports and the advancement of dressage in the U.S. Triple Crown is an official sponsor of this year’s Adequan Global Dressage Festival. Both Perry-Glass and Brock are official ambassadors for Triple Crown feed, choosing to fuel their top-level equine partners with the company’s superior nutritional products.
Perry-Glass began her equestrian journey as a three-day eventer, but eventually settled on her true passion: dressage. Her career highlights include winning the Grand Prix at the 2015 Palm Beach Dressage Derby and securing second at the 2016 CDI-W Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special with her Danish Warmblood, Goerklintgaards Dublet, at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida. Most notably, Perry-Glass and “Dublet” were part of the U.S. Olympic Dressage Bronze medal-winning team at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
As a competitor at the top of her sport, Perry-Glass well understands the impact that nutrition has on performance. After working with a nutritionist who highly recommended Triple Crown because of the company’s reputation, Perry-Glass began to recognize the outstanding quality of feed and the science that supports it. Triple Crown products enhance her horses’ performances, body conditions, coats, and overall health.
Allison Brock, a USDF Gold and Silver Medalist and Bronze Olympic medalist, also boasts a long list of accomplishments, which includes wins at the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Special at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in 2016. She helped earn the U.S. Nations Cup Team Gold in 2015, and was Traveling Reserve for the U.S. Pan American Games Dressage Team in 2015. Brock’s 2016 Rio Olympic partner, Rosevelt, was imported to the U.S. in January of 2010, and since has notched some impressive victories with Brock. Rosevelt receives super-premium Triple Crown feeds, as do all of Brock’s hard working mounts.
Brock also knows just how important feed choice is when considering her horses’ overall heath and potential for achieving success on the international dressage stage. A life-long rider who tried her hand at a variety of equine disciplines before committing to dressage, Brock has been feeding Triple Crown feed since 2002.
“My working horses seem to do really well on Triple Crown’s Low Starch, and my older gentlemen thrive on Triple Crown Senior,” Brock said. “I have used the Triple Crown Safe Starch® Forage as well. I think it is important to be very sensitive to what kind of effect feed has on temperament and body condition.”
Triple Crown, founded in 1989 and headquartered in Wayzata, Minnesota, prides itself on being the first feed company to add prebiotics, probiotics, and organic minerals to horse feed. The company sells its outstanding product line through independent feed distributors across the United States.
