2017 Vinceremos “Buck Off”   
Laas Equestrian Real Estate LLC an Independent Contractor of Engel & Völkers Wellington

Laas Equestrian Real Estate is a proud sponsor of the 2017 “Buck Off” to benefit Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center. Dr. Travis Laas has a special history with this event. He was on the winning team of the inaugural event and was the high scoring rider in the second year and is thrilled to be supporting it once again, this year as a team coach.

Vinceremos serves children and adults with developmental, physical and psychological disabilities in a fun, natural and nurturing environment where the riders gain greater independence and achieve a higher quality of life. Proceeds from the “Buck Off” events go toward covering the high costs that are incurred on a daily basis in order to keep the horses, staff, and facility at Vinceremos operating.

There are 4 “Buck Off” events, 3 preliminary competitions and a championship round, held over a period of 4 weeks. The championship round is held during the Vinceremos Annual Dinner Auction. This is a team competition with 4 riders to a team. Each competition has a panel of 4 different judges that can score the riders a maximum score of 25 points per judge, making a perfect score of 100 points. All four rider’s scores are totaled for a team score. Riders must stay on the bull for 20 seconds and keep one hand free in order to receive a score. Judges give points based on style, character and a bonus for costumes. The team with the highest score at each preliminary competition will advance to the championship round to compete against each other and the winning team from the previous year. This year’s preliminary events will be held on Jan. 12, Jan. 19, Jan. 26. at the White Horse Fashion Cuisine. The championship will be held on Feb. 3 in conjunction with the 30th Annual Vinceremos Benefit Dinner and Auction.

Be sure to mark your calendars to come out and support the fantastic work that Vinceremos does!

Dr. Travis Laas DVM brings a unique expertise to the real estate market. He knows the people, the places and most importantly, the horses!

Travis spent many years in the Wellington equine industry as a sport horse veterinarian. He was forced to end his veterinary career after a severe neck and back injury as a result of a horse related accident. Two spine surgeries later, Travis has redirected his expertise to help equestrians by specializing in sales, leasing and the design of top sport horse and polo facilities across the county. He works primarily with private clients and developers in transactions involving land, luxury homes and equestrian estates.

Travis is an active member of the Wellington community, frequently participating in local fundraisers, charity groups, and town meetings. Dr. Laas can be seen regularly at jumper shows, dressage competitions, and polo matches. He enjoys riding, fishing and other outdoor activities.

Travis’ local connections and unrivaled experience were an undeniably perfect match with Engel & Völkers extensive international presence, forward thinking, and distinguished networks.  The E&V Wellington office is just a short walk to both of the major horse shows and is in the heart of all the action.

With a true appreciation for the needs of the equine athlete, Dr. Laas understands the importance of finding both you and your horses the perfect home.
