Dressage Under the Stars Series Kicks Off February 2, 2011!
Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Each Wednesday during the winter equestrian Season in Palm Beach the elegance of dressage is showcased under the magic of starlight. In only its third season, DRESSAGE UNDER THE STARS has become one of The Winter Equestrian calendar’s most anticipated events. Five horse and rider combinations perform weekly for cash prizes and the opportunity to return to the eight week Champion round where the winner takes away a grand prize consisting of lavish gifts and a very large check. This event consistently attracts the BEST international caliber riders in south Florida.
This year we’ve really raised the bar. Over the course of eight consecutive Wednesdays (beginning February 2nd), we’ll give prizes that will include, cash, champagne, a one day rental of a brand new Lamborghini, VIP passes to the table service sponsorship tent, and numerous other gifts, including a new saddle etc. The prizes that will be given throughout the series are too numerous to list. We’ll be formally announcing the title sponsor this week!
Meanwhile, we have secured a few select ‘A‘ list celebrity guest judges to help create excitement outside of our local equestrian community. We’ve been working with numerous talent agencies across the country and have secured singers, song-writers, actors, and TV personalities to help judge throughout our eight week series. We’ve of course included a number of knowledgeable recognized International judges to assist in scoring the technical portion of the event.
The World famous Players Club Bar & Grille is the premiere venue for International caliber competition where riders allow their equine partners to shine under the stars. The high energy and hugely popular “musical freestyles” shall take place patio-side where an audience of over 400 will sip cocktails and dine both ring side and on the second story patio, which offers an amazing view.
We are inviting rides to compete in our competition for the following dates; February 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd or March 2nd, 9th, or 16th. The finale will be held March 23rd and the winning riders from the prior 7 weeks will be invited to competed again, for the Grand Prizes.
