Michele and Doug Hundt, the owners of ShowChic Dressage, are loading up their mobile boutique with the finest selection of dressage apparel, accessories and gifts to travel to the top farms and shows on the East Coast this fall.
As the Hundts head out from their home base in Wellington, dressage competitors and spectators in the cooler-weather states can expect to have the best in dressage apparel arriving soon at nearby horse shows.
The owners and organizers of the whistle stops along the way are thrilled to welcome ShowChic’s traveling boutique. The Hundts are equally eager to make their annual trip north for the fall. “We are excited to see our longtime customers and meet some new ones,” Michele said. “We have some great Cavallo closeouts. The fall/winter collections from all our suppliers have arrived, and we are over-the-top excited to share them with our customers.”
The first stop is the New England Dressage Association’s Fall Festival of Dressage CDI-W in Saugerties, N.Y., this weekend. This iconic show will also be the site of the USDF Region 8 championships as well as the New England Series Breeders Championships.
Next, ShowChic will visit several Massachusetts farms during the week of Sept. 21-26. The traveling boutique will begin its New England tour at the family-run Dry Water Farm in Stoughton, Mass., 20 miles south of Boston. Then, it’s on to Bear Spot Farm in nearby Concord — a farm famous for catering to the needs of its horses. Elysium Farm in scenic Harvard is the third stop during the jam-packed week.
Before leaving New England, ShowChic will be at Cutler Farm’s Open House on Sept. 26. Cutler Farm’s scenic rolling hills and world-class dressage facility is located in picturesque Medfield, Mass.
Beginning the trip back south, ShowChic is on to Dressage at Devon, the historic competition staged in Devon, Pa., from Sept. 29 through Oct. 4. The CDI-W was started in 1975, and is one of the premier equestrian events in North America for world-class dressage and open breed competition.
The ShowChic mobile boutique will then continue to chase the warm weather south and head to the USDF Region 3 Championships and Atlanta National Fall Dressage Show Oct. 9-11. These competitions will be hosted by the Georgia Dressage and Combined Training Association at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers.
Then it’s back home to Wellington, in time for the USEF Festival of Champions, set for Dec. 9-13 at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival grounds, where the Intermediaire I and Grand Prix championships will take place. Shortly thereafter, the 2016 Adequan Global Dressage Festival will begin, where the mobile boutique will be on hand for the 12-week series.
