Tina and Jaimey Irwin Share Dressage Athlete of the Month Title for February
Husband and wife, Jaimey and Tina Irwin of Stouffville, ON both had remarkable rides during week seven of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) in Wellington, FL during the month of February to share the coveted title of Red Scarf Dressage Athlete of the Month.
Tina earned the world’s highest small tour score on record for 2017 on Feb. 26 in the CDI 1* FEI Intermediate I Freestyle aboard Laurencio (Laurentio x Donerhall), a 10-year-old Oldenburg gelding she co-owns with Jaimey. Despite having to re-start their routine after a technical glitch with the music, Tina and Laurencio kept their composure to earn the record-setting score of 78.708%.

Jaimey also had an impressive test in the Freestyle. Partnered with Donegal V (Johnson x Gribaldi), a nine-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding owned by Team Irwin Supporters Group, he scored 75.625% to claim third place. Together, Jaimey and Donegal V also captured two other top results during week seven, finishing second in both the CDI 1* FEI Prix St. Georges and the CDI 1*FEI Intermediate I with scores of 70.482% and 74.123%, respectively.

"It is great competing with Jaimey,” Tina explained. “I am happy for him when he does well and vice versa. I may be a bit more competitive than him though, so when he gets ahead of me it pushes me to be better and go for it.”
