Wellington, FL (June 12, 2012) – Dressage rider Renee Rains and her Hanoverian gelding Samir’ Sandro showed off their musical style at the Gold Coast Dressage Association May Show, dancing their way to victory in the USDF Freestyle, Fourth Level class. The duo also won the Rock Star Award from Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock, Inc.

Rains was thrilled to win the Rock Star Award with Samir’ Sandro. “We have been doing this freestyle for about a year and the music really matches his personality,” Rains said. “I took the pattern to a musician, who didn’t know anything about dressage, but he put the music together and I really like it.”
