Winter Equestrian Festival to Host Equestrian Special Olympics on Sunday

Wellington, FL – March 15, 2007 – In conjunction with Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center, the Winter Equestrian Festival is pleased to announce that it will host the Equestrian Special Olympics on Sunday, March 18, 2007, at 1 p.m.

Forty riders will compete in the county games, which is the first of three stages of the competition, and the riders hail from all over Palm Beach County. The next stage, Regionals, draws riders from Southern Florida, and the state finals host riders from around Florida.

The event will take place in the Mogavero Arena at the Palm Beach Polo Equestrian Club on the last day of the 2007 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington. Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center, based in Loxahatchee Groves, FL, will ship in 10 horses for the riders’ use.

Ruth Menor, Vinceremos executive director, noted that the event has been around for 20 years. In addition, Vinceremos introduced the equestrian Special Olympics to the state of Florida. This weekend’s event will offer four disciplines, and riders choose two that they want to compete in. The disciplines are dressage, equitation, pole bending and a trail/obstacle portion.

“For our riders who ride all year long, the Olympics helps them set goals and become goal oriented,” Menor said. “I personally always see lots of improvement in the riders because they have more of a reason to work hard and are motivated by the concept of excelling in competition.”

Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center is a nonprofit organization that provides recreational and therapeutic riding instruction to people of all ages with varying developmental, physical and psychological disabilities in an energetic and nurturing setting. The organization has assisted more than 1000 adults and children to gain a sense of accomplishment, greater independence and a higher quality of life.
