Wellington area Realtor and dressage rider Ann-Louise Cook will sponsor the inaugural Dressage People’s Choice Award during the 2014 Wellington Classic Dressage Autumn Challenge to be held in conjunction with the upcoming Great American Insurance Group USDF Region 3 Championships.
The Dressage People’s Choice Award is based on sportsmanship, horsemanship and performance, and will give dressage enthusiasts at the show the chance to have a say as to which rider deserves to be recognized as a winner. Anyone at the show, including show staff, vendors and competitors, will be asked to vote for which dressage nominee most deserves the Dressage People’s Choice Award.
Cook will present the winner with a ribbon sash and an engraved silver bowl.
The 2014 Great American Insurance Group USDF Region 3 Championships and Wellington Classic Dressage Autumn Challenge will take place Oct. 16-19 at the Global Dressage Stadium at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington.
Cook rides and competes with her own dressage horse and has certified her corgi, Teddy, as a visiting therapy dog.
Relocating to Wellington from Martha’s Vineyard in 2000, Cook is well versed in equestrian and seasonal lifestyles.
