Thursday, February 12, 2009

continued their winning streak recently, winning the CDI Prix St. Georges class at the Wellington Classic Spring Challenge CDI. Thanks to their win the duo also took home the handsome and much sought after Sho Clothes Whip, an award that has become a coveted favorite among top riders. Brons was pleased to capture the title, and the whip, aboard the nine-year-old, 16.3 hand KWPN gelding with a score of 71.368%. “He was consistent and reliable throughout the test. He is getting so he is wonderful all the time,” Brons said of Teutobod.
Brons currently has his sights set on qualifying for the USEF National Championships at Gladstone this summer with Teutobod. Brons has found success with the gelding at recent shows and said Teutobod has been in training with him for three years.

Winning the Sho Clothes Whip places Brons in excellent company. Past winners include Michelle Gibson, Kristy Lund, Janne Rumbough, Mindy Elgart, Jane Springer, Shannon Dueck and Lisa Wilcox. The Sho Clothes whip represents the commitment Michele Hunt and Betsy Rebar Sell, co-owners of the Sho Clothes Dressage boutique, have made to the dressage community through the years. The smart looking “logo” whip was designed after Rebar Sell’s horse Wonderful Walden. Rebar Sell and Wonderful Walden were Gold Medalists at the Pan Am Games. 

Sho Clothes, located at 3220 Fairline Farms Road in Wellington, specializes in dressage apparel and has become the “go to” dressage boutique for dressage enthusiasts from all over the world. Sho Clothes has been serving the dressage community since 2001 when Hundt, an amateur dressage rider, accomplished art director and businesswoman, combined her business and artistic skills with Rebar Sell’s equestrian expertise to form Sho Clothes. The Sho Clothes mobile boutique is also a fixture on the Florida Dressage circuit.

Hundt and Rebar Sell are strong supporters of the dressage community and enjoy the opportunity to present the Sho Clothes Whip throughout the year at West Palm Beach’s world-class dressage shows. In addition, Sho Clothes hosts a monthly get together for dressage riders called Shop Talk, which has become a hot spot for riders to gather with top professionals in the equine industry.
