Mimi Leggett of Ocala, FL, was inducted for a second time into special group of senior dressage riders and horses on October 28th at the STRIDE Schooling Show #5 located at the Florida Horse Park. The ages of Mimi and her horse, Rapped N Painted (known as Ram), qualify them to become members of The Dressage Foundation& #39’s Century Club.
The Century Club recognizes dressage riders and horses whose combined ages total 100 years or more. Mimi is 78, and Ram is 22. In addition to having ages totaling 100 or more, horse and rider perform a
dressage test of any level at a dressage show and are scored by a dressage judge. The Dressage Foundation provides a Century Club ribbon and wall plaque to each horse and rider team. Local dressage
clubs, family and friends help to make the ride into a celebratory event.
In 2014, Mimi joined the Century Club as Team #182 on “Reynolds Aluminum.” She will be one of few riders to join on multiple horses!
The Century Club was formed at The Dressage Foundation in 1996, at the suggestion of noted dressage judge and instructor, Dr. Max Gahwyler. The intent was to encourage older dressage riders to remain
active in the sport. Since that time, the Century Club has grown into a meaningful and popular endeavor and has over 300 members to-date.
TDF’s Century Club is sponsored by Platinum Performance. “At Platinum Performance horse health is our mission. Since 1996, we’ve been committed to providing high quality equine nutritional supplements that are developed, tested, and made with care to ensure results.
