OMEGA ALPHA | OMEGA ALPHA HEALTHY HORSE AWARD | WELLINGTON DRESSAGE | GOLD COAST DRESSAGE ASSOCIATION
The Gold Coast Dressage Association Season Opener, held at the Global Dressage Stadium at PBIEC in Wellington, FL was everything that rider Kevin Kohmann was hoping for on his first ride in Intermediare 2 on the elegant Danish Warmblood, Sanchez. “We were really, really conservative in there,” Kohmann describes about the test, “Normally, he likes to be very much of a Trakehner in the ring. He likes to be hot, hot, hot!” Sanchez, who is owned by Jody Stoudenmier of Finally Farm in Wellington, is a 12 year old gelding by Blue Horse Romanoff and out of a Trakehner mare. Stoudemier has owned the fiery horse, whom she purchased from neighboring Diamante Farms, for 6 years. “I was in Denmark when Diamante Farm purchased Sanchez as a 2 year old,” she remembers. Now, she rides the horse everyday to warm him up for his shows with Kohmann.
“We plan on showing Grand Prix this season,” Kohmann says about his goals for Sanchez, “This was a good start, and now I feel a lot better about it.” He adds that he is excited to receive the Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award which includes an assortment of popular Omega Alpha health products, a cooler, and a commemorative ribbon. Kohmann is particularly eager to try Gastra-FX™. With natural ingredients like marshmallow root, slippery elm, licorice root, and ginger root, Gastra-FX™ helps maintain a healthy intestinal track, and also helps hot horses like Sanchez stay calm during the high performance shows.
Kohmann is very accustomed to high levels performance. As a Grand Prix rider and trainer, he is well known for his ability to take even the most difficult horses and turn them around into successful and willing partners. Getting his start in Germany from a very young age, Kohmann is also a German certified judge who served as assistant trainer with Cesar Parra and Oded Shimoni. He is continuing to work very closely with Devon Kane this season at the prestigious Diamante Farms. Omega Alpha feels it is important to honor riders and trainers, like Kohmann, who make great health a top priority for their horses.
