Tampa, Fla. – December 8, 2014 – The opportunity to watch or ride under renowned horsewoman Lynn Palm is a valuable one, but at the Florida Gold Coast and Gulf Coast Quarter Horse Circuits attendees will have that opportunity presented to them.
The Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit will be held December 27-31, 2014 at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center within the Florida State Fairgrounds, and on Monday, December 29, Palm and her husband, Cyril Pittion-Rossillon, will present a Western Dressage demonstration for all in attendance. The demonstration is compliments of the Florida Gold Coast Circuit.
Immediately following the conclusion of the Florida Gold Coast Circuit, the five-day Florida Gulf Coast Circuit kicks off on January 1, 2015 and continues through January 5. During this second circuit, Palm and Pittion-Rossillon will offer a Western Dressage Clinic. Participants must register by January 1, 2015 to ride in the clinic for a small fee, and participation spaces are limited.

Few clinicians today can match Lynn Palm’s proven performance record as an all-around trainer, showman, exhibitor and entrepreneur. Palm’s riding career began in a dressage saddle, and dressage became the backbone of her training and success with Quarter Horses in multiple disciplines. Palm is a strong promoter of Quarter Horses in traditional dressage and was instrumental in gaining AQHA approval for dressage. Now, Palm is proud to share dressage principles for western horses and riders in the newest and hottest western discipline: western dressage.

Pittion-Rossillon hails from Paris, France where he earned his Riding Master Degree from the French National Equestrian School in Saumur. Pittion-Rossillon also values dressage as the basis for all of his training, and lightness and harmony are what he strives to achieve with his instruction and training.
