It’s that time of year where all eyes are on Wellington. While eventers are focused on today’s action at the Wellington Eventing Showcase, the entire week has been crammed full of exciting horse-related activities. Earlier this week the Palm Beach Polo Club was the host site for Dressage Under the Stars Cancer Challenge, presented by Invictus Farm. The event was hosted to raise money for cancer charities and honor those who have battled the disease.

Susanne Hamilton and Lutz, owned by Bettina Hinckley, took home the top honors for their musical freestyle, earning her elected cause, prostate cancer, the largest share of the total donations. Susanne and Lutz received two scores of 9 and one score of 8 for their freestyle to techno music “Numa Numa” (Dragostea Din Tei) by Moldovan pop group O-Zone. The rides, which were judged on technicality and showmanship, and Lutz, a 14-year-old Halfinger gelding, definitely put a smile on the judges’ faces.
