The Challenge of the Americas Presented by SSG Gloves Fast Facts
What: The Challenge of the Americas (COTA), presented by SSG Gloves, is a spectacular event where teams of high-performance dressage riders compete in intricate quadrilles set to world-class music and choreography. New to 2014, teams will also include elite showjumpers riding a course while choosing to tackle the most difficult jumps and shaving seconds off their time in an effort to rack up more points for their teams.
This annual fundraiser is a one-of-a-kind affair where competing riders include the “Who’s Who” of top equestrian competitors in the United States, Canada, Latin America and Europe. The 12th annual Challenge will once again raise money to help find a cure for breast cancer by benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through Play for P.I.N.K.
