2017 was the first time in Adequan Global Dressage Festival History that the Philippines flag waved proudly in the Top 3 of a CDI event when Ellesse came third with Triviant in the CDI3* Grand Prix Kur final
Ellesse Jordan Tzinberg was born on December 17, 1991, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She starting riding at an early age of 6, began competing at age 8, and launched her international career at the age of 23 in Europe.
In 2008,16 year old Ellesse left the nest to live in the USA where she was awarded a NCAA equestrian scholarship at Kansas State University where she compete on their English Varsity team.
January 2009, Ellesse suffered a devastating car crash on the midwest ice, totalling her car and her physical ability. Months of rehab, rest, and treatment were needed eventually resulting in her moving west to San Diego, California where she received pristine care and rehabilitation while she earned her university degree at the University of San Diego.
In the very early months of 2017, Ellesse competed both Triviant and Pavarotti in Wellington, Florida and in the highly-respected Adequan Global Dressage Festival CDI series in the big tour classes. Both horses, achieved fantastic results, many many ribbons including first place ribbons and Ellesse ecstatically received personal bests and scores in the 70s on both geldings. Among these results, it was the first time in Adequan Global Dressage Festival History that the Philippines flag waved proudly in the Top 3 of a CDI event when she came third with Triviant in the CDI3* Grand Prix Kur final.
Ellesse is working towards improving her scores in Grand prix international CDIs and national shows but has longer term goals like the 2018 World Equestrian Games, future World Cup finals and the Tokyo 2020 games. Additionally Ellesse will be looking to grow her already strong young team of horses for herself as well as take on special sale horses and clients!
Currently, Ellesse and her horses are based in Denmark (very close to Copenhagen Airport) and is training with internationally renowned dressage coach and rider, Rune Willum.
