Wellington, FL (December 26, 2012) – Chloe Hatch rode into a
personal victory at the Wellington Classic Dressage Holiday Show
aboard her horse, Slogan, by completing in the 3rd level test and
winning the Everglades Dressage Young Rider Achievement Award.
“I just had fun,” Hatch smiles, “Everything was such an improvement
over last time!” The team rode away with a score of 61.842% as well
as an Everglades Dressage saddle pad.
“She went for it and we’re all thrilled,” states proud mom, Linda
Hatch. Hatch has been training with Heidi Degele, who is also proud
of her young student. Degele explains that this recent victory is extra
special because her horse suffered a serious injury about a year ago.
Slogan, who is by Prince Paradiso, suffered a fractured hock but has
now made a full recovery. Degele is planning to take Hatch and
Slogan even further into Young Riders during this 2013 season.
Everglades Dressage Young Riders Achievement Award is presented
to up and coming young riders who excel in the show arena and go
above and beyond their duty to horses and horsemanship.
