Wellington, Fla.—January 26, 2012 –Adult Amateur dressage rider Amy Swerdlin, from Wellington, Florida, rode away with the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award at the Gold Coast Fall Fling while competing on the prestigious and talented Hanoverian, Epikur.
Swerdlin competed the 15-year-old gelding, a former breeding stallion at the Landgestut of Marbach in Germany, in the Adult Amateur Grand Prix. “My ride was pretty good. I would have liked a little more energy, but it was clean and we are always happy with a clean test,” said Amy Swerdlin, adding that she will continue to compete Epikur in the Grand Prix division throughout the winter show season.
As the winner of the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award, sponsored by Vita Flex Nutrition, Swerdlin received a bucket of the Vita Flex® joint supplement Equinyl™ Combo.
