Endel Ots and Schneiders Saddlery Team Up to Recognize Outstanding Riders
Wellington, FL (December 6, 2012) – Dressage rider and trainer Endel Ots of Lionshare Dressage has recently kicked off his clinic tour with three successful days spent at Cutler Farm in Massachusetts. Ots was the alternate for the US Dressage Team during the 2010 Pan Am Games and is sponsored by Schneiders. Through this sponsorship, riders who clinic with Ots have the chance to win an item from Schneiders’ innovative line of dressage bridles. Throughout his clinic tour, Ots will be awarding these magnificent bridles to outstanding participants in the clinics, especially those he considers as being most improved over the course of the clinic.
At the Cutler Farm clinic, this honor went to Elizabeth Wallace who rode three horses throughout the clinic and steadily improved each day. Ots was impressed by her enhanced ability to keep the horse going correctly without drifting off the right, as well as by her concentration on working quietly on the aids in between the movements in the neutral phase. After the clinic, Ots presented Wallace with a beautiful new dressage bridle from Schneiders for these outstanding efforts. Ots’s next clinic will be at Oak Hill Farm in Lockport, Illinois on December 15-16, 2012, and he is looking forward to recognizing another rider and presenting them with a Schneiders bridle.
Ots is a big fan of the bridles and the other innovative dressage tack that Schneiders carries. The Joseph Sterling Conversion Dressage Bridle provides riders with a level of sophistication and convenience that can benefit their performance. This 2 in 1 bridle converts from snaffle to double bridle in a snap. Its modern features include the patented Fold-Away® Flash, Comfort Plus padded contoured crown and double adjustable caveson. Schneiders also offers a wide range of dressage related products including an excellent line of snaffle bridles that are offered at 3 great price points. For the smaller, refined headed horses their Joseph Sterling Petite bridle has become very popular. Dressage riders will also appreciate the Dura-Tech® EZ View® Pad and interchangeable Number System, which eliminates wearing a number on your bridle.

Ots says he is very much looking forward to being able to share all of Schneiders fine products with his dressage audience as he travels to horse shows and clinics throughout the year. His clinic schedule includes stops in Kansas City, Missouri followed by Virginia in January.
