Del Mar, Calif. – April 3, 2017 – Excitement is growing for the upcoming 4th Annual West Coast Dressage Convention, which will take place April 8-9 in Del Mar, California. Olympic gold medalist Carl Hester of Great Britain will be the featured clinician and he will provide a wealth of knowledge on the development of a young horse through to Grand Prix to both riders and auditors.
Hester is coming off of a very successful performance at the FEI World Cup Dressage Finals in Omaha, Nebraska, where he placed third aboard Nip Tuck with an 83.757 percent.
“I am over the moon with Nip Tuck,” Hester said about his World Cup Grand Prix Freestyle. “It was one of the best freestyles I think he’s gone. He’s unbelievable the way he tries not to make mistakes. How can I possibly be disappointed [about placing third] when he’s done his absolute best, which is what I feel he did today?”
Though VIP tables located ringside have sold out, general admission and VIP boxes are still available to purchase for the 4th Annual West Coast Dressage Convention. The VIP Box Hospitality Package includes five 2-Day event passes, unrivaled views of the show arena, daily complimentary glass of champagne, exquisite buffet style lunch, and complimentary refreshments and snacks.
“If you are interested in purchasing a VIP box to enjoy the educational event, or would like to purchase general admission for Saturday and/or Sunday, please visit our website at www.shproductions.ca,” President and CEO of SH Productions Inc., Scott Hayes, explained.”The clinic with Carl will draw more than 1,200 auditors from across the West Coast of the United States and Canada, so do not hesitate to order your tickets!”
