Wellington, FL (January 1, 2010) – Dana Fiore’s youthful exuberance, along with some stellar rides in the Prix St. Georges and Intermediaries I classes aboard her gelding Redford, helped her clinch the “Rider Wellness Award” at the Wellington Classic Holiday Challenge Toys for Tots Benefit Show. Sponsored by The Wellington Institute, the award is given to one rider at the show based on energy level, zest for life, weight control, muscle and body mass, stress management and anxiety control.
Fiore was thrilled with the gift certificate and products she won from The Wellington Institute and said the secret to her healthy lifestyle is staying active and riding. Fiore also stays fit by working on her palm tree farm in Boynton Beach, Florida.
“We want to congratulate Dana on an excellent season. Dana is also the perfect example of fitness and wellness,” said Juan Gonzalez, Director of Marketing for The Wellington Institute, adding that The Wellington Institute benefits riders by taking a look at their hormonal system to study their aging process.
Fiore has been training Redford, a 9-year-old Hanoverian gelding, since he was three. “I love my horse and I love dressage,” she said, adding that her involvement in the horse industry is a family affair as her husband is a veterinarian.
The Wellington Institute’s Dr. Jennine Cabanellas, who has helped equestrians, from amateurs to Olympic athletes, increase their quality of life and their competitive edge through bio-identical hormone optimization protocols, said she is pleased to be presenting the Rider Wellness Award. “You have to be in great shape to ride and compete in dressage and we are always happy to meet new riders who are focused on staying physically fit,” Cabanellas said. “When Dana visits The Wellington Institute she will see that we have many equestrian clients, including Olympic dressage rider Robert Dover, Olympic show jumper Nona Garson, Olympian Oded Shimoni, and Pan Am medalist Marco Bernal.”
By performing simple blood tests, The Wellington Institute can prevent and reverse the aging processes to extend a rider’s professional career and ensure a healthier life and better longevity. “Dr. Cabanellas is called the ‘Queen of Anti-Aging’ by many of her patients who are eager to combat the aging process,” Gonzalez said, adding that The Wellington Institute would be awarding the “Rider Wellness Award” at a variety of Gold Coast Dressage Association (GCDA) shows and Wellington Classic Dressage (WCD) shows, including the GCDA Opener CDI, January 21-23, 2011; the WCD Spring Challenge CDI, February 10-13, 2011; the WCD Challenge II, March 10-13, 2011; and the GCDA Finale I, April 15-16.
