Shawna Harding And Pamela Goodridge Win Top Honors in Absorbine® Myoplast® Dressage Classes At Wellington Dressage Classic Challenge I
Wednesday, January 14, 2009
West Palm Beach, FL – Dressage rider Shawna Harding has won countless dressage titles aboard her Danish Warmblood gelding Come On III, and her winning streak continued recently at the Wellington Classic Dressage Challenge I Show at the Jim Brandon Equestrian
Center. Harding won the FEI Test of Choice sponsored by Absorbine® Myoplast®.
Her win, on Come On III with a score of 69.737% in the Intermediaire 2 class, was especially gratifying to Harding because she is a strong proponent of Absorbine. “I am grateful to Absorbine for sponsoring the class and I love getting their products as the prize. I use all of these, including Myoplast,” Harding said, acknowledging the large prize basket full of Absorbine goodies.
Judge Dinah Babcock said Harding’s ride was consistent and dynamic. Harding and the 17.2 hand gelding had a great deal of success in the FEI small tour in 2008, and now Come On III is proving he has the strength, talent and training to move up to the highest levels of the sport.
Harding wasn’t the only competitor to ride away as an Absorbine Myoplast winner. Top professional Pamela Goodridge rode Rigoletto, a 16.2 hand Hanoverian gelding owned by Judy Cummigs of South Woodstock, Vermont, to a winning score of 72.821% in the USEF Third Level test two class sponsored by Absorbine Myoplast.
Goodridge, who has competed in the World Championships in Toronto, two Olympic Sports Festivals and in Europe, edged out last month’s winner Dana Fiore, who finished second aboard Redford with a score of 71.795%. Goodridge was happy about her score and her win.
“Rigoletto’s owner will be thrilled,” Goodridge said, when she saw the Absorbine prize basket. "She also shows just one level lower so she will really be excited that he did so well at this level.”
Goodridge was also pleased with the Absorbine prizes and learned about Absorbine Myoplast, an amino acid supplement formulated to support muscle performance in horses. European champions have been using Myoplast, the number-one-selling muscle supplement in Germany and only available in Europe through veterinarians, for many years.
Absorbine Myoplast is now sold in the United States and is available at local tack shops, in catalogs and feed stores. For a dealer near you, or for more information, visit the Absorbine website at www.absorbinemyoplast.com.
