The Century Club was established at The Dressage Foundation in 1996, at the suggestion of Dr. Max Gahwyler, noted dressage judge and clinician. The purpose of The Century Club is to honor senior dressage riders and horses that are still actively riding and competing. In order to become a member of The Century Club, the ages of the rider and horse must add up to 100 or more years! The team must also ride any level dressage test at a show, and be scored by a judge.
We are very pleased that Carol Angle rode to join this very special club, represented by over 125 members from across the country. Carol rode Tigger Saturday to become only the third Century Club Team from Virginia!
Tigger is a 15 year old Warm blood cross by a Dutch Warm blood stallion, “Pirate” out of a thoroughbred mare. Tigger was bred and raised by Stacey Donnelly owner of Talesend Farm in Somerset, Virginia. Carol purchased Tigger from Stacey when he was seven years old. Carol and Tigger are in training with Robin Wood.
We had a special presenter of the award, as Stacey Donnelly; Tigger’s breeder was there to present Carol her Century Club award!
On behalf of The Dressage Foundation and TACO, Way to go Carol and Tigger!
