Wellington, Fla. – March 6, 2020 – Challenge of the Americas (COTA), a town-favorite fundraising event in Wellington, Florida, for the past 16 years, is set to take place at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival this Friday, Mar. 6, and the quadrille team coached by BioStar US founder Tigger Montague is vying for a win for the second year in a row. Tickets are available to be purchased to attend the competition and the gala that is to follow.
The Challenge of the Americas fundraiser brings the equestrian community together to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Play for P.I.N.K., featuring competition in a lively event and gala at the conclusion of the quadrille performances. Montague is incredibly passionate about the amazing event and its beneficiaries, donating her time each year to coach teams and choreograph their routines.
Be sure to look out for team riders Lauren Chumley, Becky Cowden, Lisa Lewis, Sarah Schmitt and BioStar sponsored riders Allison Kavey, Jim Koford (technical advisor and rider) and reserve rider Liz Austin. In addition to leading the BioStar US team, Montague has also prepared all three of the opening acts’ routines that will precede the quadrille team exhibition. The riders competing for the BioStar team have been practicing endlessly to perfect their routine in an effort to secure the win this year. To pair wonderfully with their routine, Montague has assembled costumes for each horse and rider to wear during their rides that will be revealed on Friday night to enhance the fun atmosphere.
Don’t miss your chance to watch the season’s most exciting charitable event and support Team BioStar US in the Quadrille competition! Sponsored riders Kelly Soleau Millar and Charlotte McLaughlin will also be performing at the event as part of the Millarbrooke Jumping Quadrille exhibition. General admission tickets are available at the gate, or if you cannot attend in person, tune into the livestream sponsored by MatchNRide.com on pbiec.coth.com.
