New York, NY – 2kGrey is yet again teaming up with some of the best and the brightest, this time by teaming up with dressage Young Rider Catherine Rose Chamberlain. 2kGrey’s line of fashion and performance centered equestrian attire matches perfectly with Chamberlain’s status as one of the top young riders in the country, and fits her need for fashionable, functional riding attire that can perform as well as she does in the show arena.
Chamberlain’s meteoric rise hit a new level of success during the 2014 USDF/Platinum Performance North American Junior Young Rider Championships. The 19-year-old rider swept the Young Rider division with her 12-year-old KWPN gelding, Verdicci (Krack C), scoring the highest Individual score in the Young Rider Team Test, winning the Individual test with a 71.789%, and then dominating the Young Rider Freestyle with a 72.525%. She has a storied career of success at the Junior/Young Rider level, inclluding Silver Medals in the Junior Individual and Junior Freestyle in 2010, 2011 Young Rider Ream Gold for Region 5, and was the recipient of the Willy Arts Young Rider Grant in 2010. Now she adds to that triple Gold Medals at the 2014 NAJYRC, and is looking towards the future.
She and Verdicci participated at Lendon Gray’s Emerging Dressag Athlete Program Horsemastership Clinic at the end of July, as well as continuing to train with David Wightman and Kathleen Raine at their Adventure Farms in Murrieta, California. Chance, as Verdicci is known around the barn, came to Chamberlain as a 5-year-old, and the two of them worked their way up the levels with the help of trainers Wightman and Raine to the become the successful pair they are today. Now, with the support of 2kGrey, Chamberlain will usher in a new generation of performance and style.
“We are very excited to continue to support up and coming riders like Catherine,” said 2kGrey’s co-founder and New York fashionista Meryl Ranzer. “She is the future of the sport, and we know she is the perfect match for 2kGrey.”
As stunning in the show ring as they are out on the town, 2kGrey’s line of riding pants and jackets bring a unique fashion flair to traditional dressage attire, along with exceptional performance. Transitioning seamlessly from a day of schooling to a night out, their traditional denim wash riding pants feature an exceptional level of comfort and beautifully embroidered accents. Their show pants are equally well fitting, with just a touch of flair to catch the judge’s eye. 2kGrey’s riding jackets feature lightweight fabric, flattering, fashion forward cuts, and 2kGrey’s trademark touch of uniqueness.
2kGrey equestrian apparel is the result of a passion for riding and fashion. In 2011, Grand Prix rider and entrepreneur Kris Pinto joined forces with fashion industry veteran Ranzer to create a chic, sturdy and sophisticated line of riding pants. The line was further refined and performance tested with 2kGrey advisor and professional dressage rider and trainer, Karen Lipp. The end result is a line of fabulous equestrian pants and jackets that can easily go from the saddle to the street and look great every step of the way. The collection is machine washable, and proudly "Made In The USA.” Learn more about 2kGrey at http://www.2kGrey.com.
