|Dressage Canada is again pleased to have the opportunity to present and host the Florida Fortnight event which will celebrate, develop and support our talented Canadian athletes, while also providing education and networking opportunities for officials, owners, sponsors and dressage enthusiasts. Back by popular demand, the second annual Florida Fortnight in Wellington, will run from January 25 through to Feb 3, 2015.
The Fortnight is open to anyone. Come down to Florida, and bring your friends. There is lots to see in addition to the sunshine and fabulous shopping. No matter how large or how small your budget, the Fortnight will have something for everyone.
The 2015 Fortnight will begin on January 25th with a special encore screening of the emotional and touching documentary – THE POWER OF TWO, which follows our riders and horses as they prepare to compete for Canada at the 2011 Pan American Games. This outstanding film was produced by Zap Productions who were our 2014 Media of Excellence Award recipients. Following this presentation, we will officially kick off our Fortnight with the welcome reception sponsored by Vericore Ventures – Equinity Supplements.
We have many return presenters for the 2015 Fortnight, and also some new faces and experts joining our team.
Sessions will again be held on fitness, nutrition, equine health and maintenance, mental coaching, analyzing performance, supplements for performance, media training and much more. See our full schedule and list of presenters at http://bit.ly/1Cy41l6.
Added to our Fortnight this year is a clinic for certified coaches and officials with Dr. Volker Moritz. Gather personal insight on the sport from one of the most experienced judges. Dr. Moritz has judged at national, European, World Equestrian Games, World Cups and the Olympic Games, and he is truly a sport icon. The 2015 event will also include some special one-of-a-kind opportunities with some of our most accomplished athletes including multiple Olympians Christilot Boylen, Ashley Holzer and Belinda Trussell.
Back by popular demand is the headset commentary. Sit and watch some of the top athletes in the world compete at the CDI5* Wellington (February 4-8, 2015) in a relaxed setting while listening to one of the top FEI dressage judges explain the tests for each athlete from a judge’s point of view.
