Top Equestrians from Hunters, Show Jumping, Polo, and Dressage to Compete Against One Another
Nic Roldan, Brandon Phillips, Louise Serio, Peter Pletcher, Chris Hickey, David Marcus, Kent Farrington, and Georgina Bloomberg have been selected to represent their disciplines, showing off their newfound skills in the reining ring at the Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF) fundraiser, Who Reins Supreme?.
Held on Friday, February 1, 2013, at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in West Palm Beach, Fla., the evening will raise funds for EAF programs that financially assist equestrians, horsemen and equine-related professionals who are suffering from catastrophic illnesses and injuries, throughout their time of need. Unlike previous years with the Tetrathlon, Who Reins Supreme? will solely focus on reining. Two world-class riders from each discipline – dressage, show jumping, hunters, and polo – will ride a custom-designed reining pattern created by Tom and Mandy McCutcheon and Sarah Willeman Richter.
