Equine Motorcoach at the Exquis World Dressage Masters in Wellington, Florida

(Wellington, Fl.) – Equine Motorcoach has made its home at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) in Wellington, Florida. When founding partner, Mark Bellissimo, invited the unique all-in-one, luxury motorized RV and horse transport to exhibit at the 2009 event, Equine Motorcoach principals welcomed the opportunity.

“We could not ask for a better place this winter to exhibit the Coach,” said Bob Wiegand, who travels with the Equine Motorcoach. “Our prospective customers are definitely at WEF. It is a great winter home base for us.”

“WEF is producing spectacular equestrian events and providing the highest level of facilities and services to build a top equestrian showcase,” said Julie Calzone, Equine Motorcoach principal and dressage competitor. “This week’s Exquis World Dressage Master event is a perfect example of their achievements”

The Exquis World Dressage Masters runs Thursday, January 29 through Saturday, January 31. $135,000 prize money has attracted the top U.S. and international riders to the spectacular Palm Beach International Equestrian Center. This list of riders is the Who’s Who of the international scene with many who were Olympic, World Cup and World Equestrian Games medalists.

Friday and Saturday will present two days of unprecedented dressage festivities in the United States with the entire International Arena including the International Club, VIP boxes and general admission seating available for reservations.

On Friday, Anky van Grunsven will host a clinic with a group of selected riders in the International Arena under lights, an environment that is similar to the 2008 Olympic equestrian venue in which van Grunsven won her third straight Olympic individual gold medal. The riders in the clinic include young riders, small tour competitors and Grand Prix combinations.

Saturday will be the World Dressage Masters highlight with the $40,000 Grand Prix Special and $80,000 Grand Prix Freestyle.

“Mark, his team, WEF and this facility are very special to us,” said Calzone. “This is the place we debuted our Equine Motorcoach, sponsored our first events and launched our dream. I am always amazed at how they continue to work night and day to add new things that create that ‘wow’ factor for spectators and competitors.”

The Show Grounds covering well over 80 acres host the complete range of jumping, children's, juniors and young rider class and show hunters competitions for both professionals and amateurs in several arenas. In addition to a re-design and upgrade of the facilities that has been home to the WEF for a quarter century, outdoor cafes, extensive landscaping and infrastructure improvements were developed.
