Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfven And Favourit Win Rock Star Freestyle Award From Cunningham & Cunningham At Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDIW

Wellington, visit web FL (March 9, viagra order 2012) – Swedish Olympic Dressage rider Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfven has been having a stellar winter season in Florida, and she topped it off at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby CDIW by riding Favourit to the win in the FEI Grand Prix Freestyle. Vilhelmson-Silfven danced her way to the win aboard the 12-year-old Rheinlander gelding with a 77.300%, and their award-winning score helped the duo win the Rock Star Award from Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock, Inc.

While this is Vilhelmson-Silfven’s first winter season in Florida, she is no stranger to the winner’s circle as she competed last year at the World Equestrian Games and is a five-time Olympian. Vilhelmson-Silfven also proved her star power at the World Dressage Masters Palm Beach show earlier in the season by riding into the winner’s circle multiple times.

During the Palm Beach Dressage Derby she made a clean sweep of the Grand Prix classes, winning all three CDI Grand Prix classes on Favourit and Don Auriello. In the Freestyle, Vilhelmson-Silfven and Favourit rode away with the victory in front of Todd Flettrich and Otto, who placed second, and Heather Blitz and Paragon in third place.

“Tinne is a fabulous rider with an outstanding career. Her musical freestyle at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby was breathtaking and it was a thrill to present her with the Rock Star Award from Cunningham & Cunningham,” said Sara Cunningham. The Rock Star Award is sponsored by Cunningham & Cunningham, a livestock insurance company located in Harriman, New York. The Rock Star Award highlights horse and rider combinations that excel in the musical freestyle classes and the winners are determined by the pair’s music selection, choreography and overall presentation.

As the winners of the Cunningham & Cunningham Livestock Rock Star Freestyle Award, Vilhelmson-Silfven and Favourit won a beautifully embroidered cooler and ribbon. “We are thrilled to be sponsoring this unique award,” said Sara Cunningham. “The musical freestyles are always fun to watch but as you watch them you realize how much time, effort and artistry goes into each performance, and we are excited to recognize these amazing performances.”
