Wellington, FL (January 13, 2015) — Dressage competitors and supporters who have flooded Wellington, Florida for the winter show season are invited to take a break from training and competing to celebrate with ShowChic on Tuesday, January 20. The fashionable dressage boutique ShowChic will be holding its monthly Shop Talk event, this month featuring Grand Prix Rider and #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag. The Shop Talk, held on Hoag’s birthday, will serve as a birthday party as well as an educational event and sneak-peak into Hoag’s newest book. As ShowChic is well-known for celebrating in style with the dressage community (through events like Shop Talks and Jog Soirées at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival), the gathering on January 20 is sure to be an evening to remember.
Tami Hoag, of Palm Beach County, Florida, is as dedicated to riding as she is to writing. The dressage competitor has had a love for both activities since she was a child, and wrote her first self-published book — Black Pony — at the age of nine. Since then, Hoag has enjoyed numerous rides in the Grand Prix ring as well as incredible success for her novels. Hoag has written over thirty-five books, including fifteen New York Times bestsellers. Her newest book, the much-anticipated Cold, Cold Heart, will be placed on the market this month.
At the January Shop Talk at ShowChic’s boutique in Wellington, Florida, Hoag will give attendees an insider’s look at this new book — with an entertaining twist. Shop Talk attendees are invited to bring gag-gifts for the birthday girl. The person who brings the most humorous gift will receive a free signed copy of Cold, Cold Heart. After the Shop Talk discussion with Hoag, the dressage rider/author will host a book signing. As usual, there will be plenty of time to socialize with fellow dressage riders and browse through ShowChic’s unique merchandise and popular riding apparel at the close of the event.
ShowChic’s Shop Talks have already been a big hit in Wellington this winter. The December Shop Talk, featuring the dressage judging duo Bill Warren and Bill McMullin, left standing-room only in the boutique. Shop Talks in the months following Tami Hoag’s will include notable guest speakers such as Canadian Olympian Ashley Holzer and Parelli Natural Horsemanship’s founders Pat and Linda Parelli.
ShowChic hopes to see all dressage enthusiasts on January 20th at the ShowChic boutique. Anyone who can’t make the event can find ShowChic’s mobile boutique — full of top products from brands like Pikeur, Cavallo, Arista, Kentucky, Equiline, and Eurostar — at the show grounds at the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival.
