Premier Equestrian Set to Award Sportsmanship Award During the 2013 Florida Dressage Circuit
Wellington, FL (January 15, 2012) – Premier Equestrian, a leading supplier of equestrian equipment and arenas, is proud to announce they will once again be sponsoring the Premier Sportsmanship Award during the 2013 Florida dressage circuit, including the Global Dressage Festival, Wellington Classic Dressage, and Gold Coast Dressage Association CDIs. The Sportsmanship Award is designed to recognize riders who bring exceptional character, sportsmanship, and a positive attitude to the sport, while respecting their fellow rider and their mount. Recipients of the Sportsmanship Award will receive a gift certificate to Premier and a beautiful tri-color ribbon.
The Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award looks beyond the numbers and scores of the perfect ride or test, and considers the contribution of the competitors themselves to the true spirit of an equestrian sports event. The award includes a $50 gift certificate to Premier Equestrian’s full range of products.
“It’s going to be an amazing season and Premier Equestrian is excited to be right in the middle of it,” said Heidi Zorn, President of Premier Equestrian. “We take pride in recognizing riders who not only are competitive, but also kind and friendly to fellow competitors, show staff, and who have put their horse first and contribute to the positive overall atmosphere at a show. Premier Equestrian is dedicated to the sport of dressage and our core goal is to provide products that are safe and functional. Our motivation is to promote the well-being of the horse and horse sport industry. Premier is proud to sponsor this award at events across the country,” said Zorn.
As sponsors of the Global Dressage Festival, the Premier Equestrian representatives will be coming from Sandy, Utah to be on hand during the Dressage Summit on February 9-11, 2013. The Summit features top trainers including Walter Zettl, Chares de Kunffy, Christoph Hess, and Linda Parelli.
Premier is also a sponsor of the Gold Coast Dressage Association and Wellington Classic Dressage shows, including the World Dressage Masters. Premier provided all of the rings, letters, and flower boxes and have been a big part of providing the footing for the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center, where the circuits are held.
As a leading supplier of horse arena footing, dressage arena fencing, horse jumps and stable accessories, Premier Equestrian has been actively involved in the equestrian community for many years. Premier has a history of supplying the dressage arena fencing for world-class facilities such as the Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, and in 2010 they were chosen as an official supplier to the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky. Premier Equestrian supplied the dressage arenas, as well as the dressage warm-up arena, driving arenas, along with the dressage letters and flower boxes. “Our website offers extensive and informative information that can help horse owners understand the differences in everything from types of arenas we sell to the different types of horse footing available from Premier,” Zorn said, adding that Premier also has a YouTube channel featuring tips from professionals.
Considered America’s leading manufacturer and distributor of equestrian arenas, Premier’s professional staff is available to help horse owners understand the differences in arenas as well as arena footing.
