Wellington, FL - At ShowChic’s upcoming Shop Talk, equestrians can get the inside scoop on how to score big. The Wellington, Florida based dressage fashion boutique ShowChic is known for helping dressage riders look like winners as they enter the show ring. With Bill Warren and Bill McMullin’s upcoming Shop Talk presentation on the view from inside the judge’s box, riders can learn how to get the scores to match the styles. Scheduled for Tuesday, December 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 P.M., ShowChic’s December Shop Talk will focus on a judge’s journey from learner judge to FEI judge as well as provide insight as to how judges determine dressage scores. The event will be followed by a Q & A session, giving the audience an even greater opportunity to get inside the mind of a judge — and hopefully add a few extra points to those scores!

Known and loved as “the Bills,” this dynamic duo is sure to impress. Warren is an FEI 3* judge, a USEF ‘S’ judge, and USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold medalist. McMullin is a USEF ‘r’ judge, USDF certified instructor, and is a USDF Bronze and Silver medalist. Operating under the name Warren-McMullin Dressage, the renowned judges travel throughout the year, but are based in Stoughton, Massachusetts in the summer and Loxahatchee, Florida in the winter.

Both Bills maintain a full schedule of riding, training, and judging. In addition, they are constantly improving their own education and the education of their students with world-class instruction from Conrad Schumacher and George Williams. ShowChic is pleased to invite the dressage community to learn from the Bills at the December Shop Talk.

The December Shop Talk with the Bills follows November’s presentation from dressage rider and advocate Karin Reid Offield, and will be followed by other highly-anticipated lecturers in the months to come. Upcoming speakers include equestrian icons such as New York Times best-selling author Tami Hoag, Canadian Olympian Ashely Holzer, and Parelli Natural Horsemanship founders Pat and Linda Parelli.

Each month’s Shop Talk is hosted by the fashionable dressage boutique, ShowChic — an equestrian apparel boutique dedicated to promoting dressage and dressage fashion. Throughout the season, dressage enthusiasts will be invited to head to ShowChic’s show room to learn from the best and do some quality shopping while they are at it.

Owned by dressage enthusiasts Michele and Doug Hundt, ShowChic carries everything a rider needs to dress for success including sought-after brands such as Pikeur, Cavallo, Arista, Kentucky, Equiline, and Eurostar.
