The Search for America’s Next Equestrian Star, by Fox Reality Channel

Wellington, FL—Karin Reid Offield and Offield Farms are pleased to

announce that The Search for America’s Next Equestrian Star: Dressage

has been acquired and will air on the Fox Reality Channel. The show was

conceived by six-time Olympian Robert Dover and showcases the

challenges of riding to the top of the Olympic sport of dressage. More

than 400 people auditioned for the show and only six were chosen to

compete for the chance to become Robert Dover’s Second Assistant

Trainer as well as a variety of other prizes. The show was shot at

Dover’s Romance Farm in Wellington, Florida and was developed by New

York City-based Brave St. Productions, who has produced shows for

numerous networks. Airdates and times will be announced soon.

“We are very excited that Fox Reality Channel has acquired The Search

for America’s Next Equestrian Star: Dressage,” said Karin Reid Offield,

the Executive Producer of the show. “The goal of the show was

two-fold. First, we wanted to assist the contestants in making their

riding dreams come true. Second we wanted to bring equestrian sports

to a larger audience. This is a wonderful opportunity to do that.”

The Fox Reality Channel is the premier destination for unscripted

programming. Among their current offering are Corkscrewed and Rebel

Billionaire: Branson’s Quest for the Best. Offield continues, “We will

be able to reach a wide audience through the Fox Reality Channel. They

were very excited to add The Search for America’s Next Equestrian Star:

Dressage to their roster of reality shows.”

The show is a mix of entertainment and an inside view of the quest of

the Olympic dream—The Apprentice meets American Idol. Six lucky

finalists were chosen to participate, including:

• Jessica (JJ) Tate, 27, Walworth, Wisconsin

• Lindy Bowerbank, 18, Thousand Oaks, California

• Philesha Chandler, 24, Wichita, Kansas

• Brendan Curtis, 20, Silver Spring, Maryland

• Rebecca Vick, 25, Southern Pines, North Carolina

• Jamil Kassum, 16, Scottsdale, Arizona

Dover and Offield share a passion for expanding the audience for the

sport of dressage. “People are very interested in horses and we try to

find ways to make them accessible,” Offield says. She has successfully

risen through the ranks from training level competitor to CDI Grand

Prix, the sport’s highest classification. Her commitment to dressage

has included funding and promoting a variety of educational and

promotional projects, including serving as the Presenting Sponsor of

the 2005 FEI World Cup Dressage Finals, a move that ensured North

American television coverage of the event. Visit http://www.offieldfarms.com

Executive Producers and Partners at Brave St. Productions, Russell Best

and Tammy Leech, have worked with Dover and Offield to bring the show

to fruition.
