World Equestrian Brands Awards Prizes to Outstanding Eventers at the 2012 American Eventing Championships

Buena Vista, VA (September 17, 2012) – World Equestrian Brands, LLC (WEB) was pleased to continue their commitment to the sport of eventing by carrying on the tradition of being a Gold Sponsor of the 2012 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships (AEC) that was held on Sept 6-9, 2012 at Chattahoochee Hills Farm in Fairburn, GA. “We are dedicated to the equine industry and are constantly taking steps to be involved in the industry’s many facets,” says WEB owner, Robin Moore about the experience. World Equestrian Brands (WEB) is the US distributor of Amerigo, Amerigo Vega, EA Mattes, Vespucci and Equilibrium products, and therefore, horses and riders at the AEC were assured of the highest quality products being given away as prizes, including two Amerigo saddles, EA Mattes pads, Vespucci bridles and Equilibrium XC boots. Moore continues, “As riders ourselves, we are continually reaching out to other riders, competitors, organizers, and retail stores to listen to their needs and the problems they are trying to solve with their equipment.”

Tiffany Lunney, winner of the Preliminary Amateur Division riding Patent Pending, was awarded an Amerigo saddle, as was Junior Young Rider Open Preliminary winner, Jenny Caras riding Fernhill Stowaway. Other WEB prizes were awarded to the top three Advanced Division winners. Becky Holder who rode Courageous Comet to a first place in Advanced was awarded a Vespucci Bridle with rubber reins. Second place winner, Laine Ashker, riding Anthony Patch, won a Mattes sheepskin half pad with rear trim, and Hannah Sue Burnett and Harbour Pilot, owned by Jacqueline Mars, were awarded a pair of Equilibrium Airlite open front and fetlock boots for coming in third.

Distributing the highest and most technologically advanced designed products on the market today, such as the prizes that were awarded at the AEC, is a priority of World Equestrian Brands. The high performance saddles and strap goods from Amerigo and Amerigo Vega are unrivaled worldwide. Designed by Peter Menet, Amerigo saddles are handcrafted, and are designed using a scientific approach by integrating the biomechanics of horse and rider to improve comfort and performance. Understanding the dynamics of motion and what the horse’s body needs to be capable of at the top levels of all disciples is Amerigo’s strength. All Amerigo saddles are fit using a unique measuring system to ensure the proper fit for both horse and rider. Amerigo’s goal is to provide comfort for the horse and rider and to enable them to be balanced and free to perform. Amerigo also is endorsed by a number of American champions, including eventers Allison Springer, Kim Severson, and Buck Davidson, showjumpers Aaron Vale and Kim Prince, and dressage riders Ali Brock, who currently is training with Kyra Kyrklund, and Pierre St. Jacques.

WEB also continues to support and sponsor other top equestrians including Olympians Carl Hester, Pius Schwizer, Edwina Alexander, Billy Twomey, Jessica Phoenix, Hawley Bennett and Steve Guerdat, who took Individual Gold in show jumping during the 2012 London Games. They also continue their dedication to their customers. Moore states, “We hope our allegiance and experience with our products shines through in our customer service to provide you with quality assistance whenever you need it.”
