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!
