Wellington, FL - January 21, 2017 - The Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) will welcome back the $100,000 Land Rover Wellington Eventing Showcase from Friday, February 3, to Saturday, February 4, hosting renowned international eventing athletes in Wellington, FL. General admission to the event is free.

Land Rover U.S. Eventing Team member and Olympian Boyd Martin won both previous editions of the Wellington Eventing Showcase, riding Trading Aces in 2015 and then again with Blackfoot Mystery, his 2016 Olympic Games. The talented rider, currently ranked fourth in the world, will aim to "three-peat" his success, but will have tough competition from newcomers to the showcase and legends of the sport, seven-time Olympian and two-time Olympic gold medalist Sir Mark Todd of New Zealand and five-time Olympian and three-time Olympic medalist William Fox-Pitt (GBR), along with 17 other riders representing the United States and Australia.

While known as the winter destination for show jumping and dressage competitors, a third Olympic discipline was added to the schedule at PBIEC in 2015 at the Wellington Eventing Showcase. It was an immediate success, and along with an increase in prize money every year, its popularity has grown as well.

Now offering $100,000 in prize money, the Land Rover Wellington Eventing Showcase is one of the largest purses for eventing competitions in the United States.

The following riders have been invited to compete in the exhibition event and may compete up to two horses:

Angela Bowles (USA)

Jennie Brannigan (USA)

Hannah Sue Burnett (USA)

Buck Davidson (USA)

William Fox-Pitt (GBR)

Clayton Fredericks (USA)

Doug Payne (USA)

Holly Payne-Caravella (USA)

Colleen Rutledge (USA)

Kim Severson (USA)

Allison Springer (USA)

Erin Sylvester (USA)

Mark Todd (NZL)

Ryan Wood (AUS)

Competition for the Land Rover Wellington Eventing Showcase will begin with dressage on Friday, February 3, at 8:30 a.m. at The Stadium at PBIEC, home of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF). Stadium jumping and cross-country phases of competition will run on Saturday, February 4, starting at 10 a.m., with cross-country taking to the field in reverse order of standing at 1 p.m. A special awards presentation will follow.

The Eventing Coaches Program: Phyllis Dawson on Training Horses and Riders

Ninety percent of training a horse is getting the horse to understand exactly what you want them to do. In general, horses are generous and willing creatures who want to please us; very seldom do they behave badly on purpose. Horses don’t come out and say, ‘Let’s make Mom’s (or Dad’s) life miserable today by going as poorly as possible - most prefer to do the right thing, as long as they know what that is.
