Evie Tumlin Joins Century Club
By Jane Fucinaro, Dressage Foundation
Evie Tumlin of Oxford, MS, will be inducted into special group of senior dressage riders and horses on September 6, 2014 at a horse show at Cedar Wind Farms in Oxford, MS. The combined ages of Evie and her horse qualify them to become members of The Dressage Foundation’s Century Club.
The Century Club recognizes dressage riders and horses whose combined ages total 100 years or more. Horse and rider perform a dressage test of any level at a dressage show and are scored by a dressage judge. The Dressage Foundation provides a Century Club ribbon and wall plaque to each horse and rider team. Local dressage clubs, family and friends help to make the ride into a celebratory event.
The Century Club was formed at The Dressage Foundation in 1996, at the suggestion of noted dressage judge and instructor, Dr. Max Gahwyler. The intent was to encourage older dressage riders to remain active in the sport. Since that time, the Century Club has grown into a popular endeavor with 159 members to date.
Dressage is a French verb meaning “to train.” Dressage is both a method of training horses and a competitive sport, and is designed to develop correct movement in the horse.
