Wellington, FL – April 5, 2012 –Throughout the 2012 winter season, Gigi Stetler of RV Sales of Broward and her team of horses and riders have had great success at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL. The top horse and riders from around the world gather at the international competition, and this year Stetler and her riders showed off their talent.
The highlight for Stetlers’ 2012 season was when her horse Par Avion, with Shaine Brooks of Stepping Stone Farm in the irons, won the $2,000 Pennfield Feeds 1.30m Open Jumper class during Week Two and Week Four. Brooks had other successful wins in Week Six, Week Nine, and in Week Twelve. Brooks also placed third during Week Nine’s $2,500 World Development Group 1.35m.
“Shaine is an amazing rider,” said Stetler. “She is patient, but strong and a great trainer. I have worked with her now for about two years she has brought me back to being a winner again in the ring. She has developed my five-year-old so successfully that I got ribbons in the Masters this year with such a young horse.”
Brooks also worked with Marisa Pachas and her horse Odyssey during the season to win top ribbons. Pachas’s most successful round came when she guided Odyssey to a blue ribbon in the Paddock Cakes Low Children’s Jumper in Week Seven at WEF. Randall Swatek aboard Stetlers’ Real Eyes had great success toward the end of the show season in Week Twelve. Swatek and Stetlers’ mount earned the championship in the Cross Rails Hunter Older division.
With Stetlers’ horses and riders having an incredible season in Wellington, Stetler is now starting a new riding program at her farm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She is welcoming her new assistant trainer, Doug Babbs as he will begin teaching beginner – intermediate hunter and jumper riders.
Stetler concluded, “This is just so fun for me. I love to watch and assist in developing new horses and riders in the sport. I look forward to making dreams come true.”
