Tami Hoag and Lonestar Win Cunningham & Cunningham Rock Star Freestyle Award at Gold Coast Dressage Finale II

Wellington, here FL (April 24, story 2012) – Tami Hoag and her dark bay Hanoverian Lonestar rocked out to music by artists Katy Perry and Beyonce during their Freestyle at the Gold Coast Dressage Finale II held at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in West Palm Beach, Florida. Their lively musical performance may not have earned them a spot on Dancing with the Stars but it did earn them the Rock Star Freestyle Award from Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock.  Hoag and Lonestar passaged and piaffed to the upbeat dance music and won the Cunningham & Cunningham Rock Star cooler and champion ribbon.

“This freestyle is so much run to ride,” said Hoag.  “Its title is the ‘everybody dance’ freestyle, and it matches Lonestar’s personality perfectly.  He is such a good partner and so trainable, I really enjoy riding this freestyle with him.”  Hoag went on to say that her goal with Lonestar is to compete him successfully at the international level.  Hoag also competed her other mount, Bacchus de Light 2, at the Intermediaire level during the Finale, scoring 65.526%.

Fame and awards are nothing new to Tami Hoag who along with a bevy of dressage show wins at the highest level of the sport, is also a famous author with 15 consecutive titles on the New York Times Best Seller list.  Whether its writing or riding, Tami strives to stay on top and this past weekend she did it again dancing her way into the winner’s circle with Lonestar!

Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock sponsors the Rockstar Freestyle Award at select shows across the country to recognize the charisma, coordination, and talent required to put on an excellent freestyle performance.  “Tami and Lonestar’s freestyle was a perfect example of a freestyle that is both fun to ride and fun to watch,” said Sara Cunningham of Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock.  “We wish her the best of luck in her pursuit of excellence in the sport, and hope she will continue to perform this lively freestyle.”
