Wellington, FL (February 14, 2012) – Canadian Olympic dressage rider Ashley Holzer has made a name for herself with her equine partner Pop Art, a Dutch Warmblood gelding owned by Rusty Holzer and Moreen Nicoll. Veterans of the Olympics and the World Equestrian Games, Holzer and Pop Art draw a great deal of attention while competing.

The famed duo took part in the Wellington Classic Sunshine Challenge CDI, presented in conjunction with the World Dressage Masters, riding away with the blue ribbon in the FEI Olympic Grand Prix Special CDI3 with a score of 70.067%. The Dressage Connection, a premier Wellington dressage store, sponsored the Grand Prix Special and presented Holzer and Pop Art with a beautiful cooler from The Dressage Connection.

“It was such a pleasure to award Ashley with one of our coolers from The Dressage Connection,” said Lisa Tota, who owns The Dressage Connection with her husband Charles. “Ashley is an amazing rider and she and Pop Art are international legends. It was very exciting to award a Dressage connection cooler to such an accomplished pair. It will be wonderful to see Pop Art wearing a Dressage Connection cooler.”

The Dressage Connection is well known for their excellent fashion selection for dressage riders, including breeches, gloves, shirts, belts, boots, coats, stockties, pins, sportswear and hats from manufacturers such as DC, Eas, Anky, Konig, Frantisi, Grand Prix, Kaminski, Kentucky, Neumann, Pikeur and Roeckl. “We have an extensive line that also includes fashions from Italy that you won’t find anywhere else,” Tota said, adding that they have also become a distributor for Windsor Equestrian. “We are pleased to be a dealer for Windsor Equestrian’s new line of bridles, halters, and saddles. It has been exciting to debut the new Windsor line in Wellington during the winter dressage season.”
