Maya and Lumiere – another fantastic season in Florida

Aside from the obvious awesomeness at being in a southern state to endure what seems to be worst winter in many years, Maya Markowski and Lumiere are using their time wisely to chalk up some scores up for Canadians in the dressage ring.

After several great finishes in the Global ring, Maya and Lumiere were selected to 2014 Canada Team 2 for the CDIO Nations Cup, February 19-23 in Wellington.

Out of the 9 teams participating Canada Team 2 placed a solid 5th with a combined score of 400.632, less than 14 points behind Canada Team 1 who placed 2nd and 23 points behind Team USA placing first.

The pair, who are sponsored by The Figure Seven, will continue to train at Stillpoint farm with some of the worlds top dressage riders until the Canadian winter decides to let up – maybe we’ll see you in July Maya!

Keep making us proud!


Following Maya and Lumiere at Stillpoint Farm Dressage – Florida Show season


Sponsored rider Maya Markowski and mount Lumiere have now settled in the sunny south – somewhere many of us wish we were after the crazy weather this season has thrown at us.

Here is the most recent update on what the two will be up to for the next three months at Stillpoint Farm Dressage in Wellington, Florida, owned by top dressage rider “Tuny” Page.

The two will obviously be enjoying lovely weather and a gorgeous facility while training with David Marcus, alongside many other top trainers and riders from across Canada, the US and Europe.

Nearing the end of July, the team will be competing in the GDF3 CDIW held at the Global Dressage show grounds.
As well, Maya has declared Lumiere for the 2014 Nations Cup this winter in Wellington. She hopes to qualify and represent Canada in the GDF7 CDIO3*/3* and National show Feb 19 to 23 at the Global show grounds.
We will be cheering Maya and Lumiere on over the course of their show season, and posting results.
Best of luck!
