ShowChic, the fashionable dressage boutique in Wellington, is bringing back a favorite dressage duo to host its next Shop Talk event.
Bill McMullin and Bill Warren, fondly known as “The Bills,” will come to chat with the public on Tuesday, Dec. 8 to discuss a topic near and dear to many dressage riders: “How to Improve Your Scores… Talk to the Judges!”
Shop Talk, now in its eighth year, is the brainchild of ShowChic owners Michele and Doug Hundt.
The idea was to provide the opportunity for dressage riders and enthusiasts to come together to learn from a variety of industry professionals in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. As the years have gone by, Shop Talks have become highly anticipated events in the dressage community. At the December Shop Talk, “The Bills” will give their insight on how to excel in the show ring.
Bill McMullin is a USDF bronze and silver medalist and a USDF-certified instructor and faculty member. He is a USEF “R” dressage judge, having recently completed the training program.
Bill Warren is an FEI 3* and USEF “S” judge, as well as a USDF bronze, silver and gold medalist. Warren is also a member of the USDF Regional Championships Committee.
Since 1998, the duo have been operating Warren-McMullin Dressage. Both are trainers, coaches, judges, clinicians and competitors, and their insight into how to improve dressage scores made them a hit at a ShowChic Shop Talk last year. This year, ShowChic has obliged the dressage community by inviting the pair to return.
The December Shop Talk will take place during the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions presented by the Dutta Corp., to be held Dec. 8-12 at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.
After watching the exciting Grand Prix and Intermediaire National Championships, stop by the ShowChic mobile tack shop located on the show grounds, right outside the show office, to find a variety of the latest “must-haves” for the fashionable dressage rider.
ShowChic carries dressage clothes and accessories from brands including Pikeur, Cavallo, Kentucky, Grand Prix, Samshield, Arista, Equiline and Eurostar. The company also offers handmade stock ties, stock pins and delightful gift items. ShowChic’s showroom — home to the Shop Talk series — is at 3220 Fairlane Farms Road, Suite 3, in Wellington.
