Aiken, SC — Custom Saddlery, a top choice among many of the finest dressage riders in the world, is credited with producing handcrafted saddles made of the finest materials. Custom’s saddles are known to have superior fit for all types of horses and riders. The United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) has further enhanced the saddle maker’s stellar reputation by welcoming Custom Saddlery as the Official Saddle of the U.S. Dressage Team through the 2016 Olympics.
“The USEF is pleased to welcome Custom Saddlery as the Official Saddle Supplier of the U.S. Dressage Team,” said USEF CEO Chris Welton. “With Custom Saddlery’s attention to design and craftsmanship in the construction of its products, we could not think of a better partner for our Dressage Team, and look forward to Custom Saddlery’s continued support of the USEF.” Custom Saddlery, known for crafting saddles specifically made to fit the individual horses and riders, is in the process of developing an exclusive co-branded saddle in conjunction with the USEF.
This limited edition saddle will feature the USEF logo and will only be available from the USEF. Custom Saddlery is also kicking off the “USEF Perks” program in conjunction with the Pan American Games in July. Any USEF member who purchases a Custom saddle and fills out the “USEF Accessory Package” form on Custom Saddlery’s website will receive an accessory package from Custom Saddlery, including everything riders could need to make their experience with their new Custom saddle even greater.
This includes Effax Leder-Balsam to protect and restore leather tack, a saddle brush to gently clean the saddle, black stirrup leathers, and an embroidered saddle pad, as well as a Custom Saddlery visor and luggage tag. “We are thrilled to yet again be supporting some of the best riders in the United States," said Cary Wallace, Master Saddle Fitter and President of Custom Saddlery. “So many of our team riders are already in Custom saddles, as are so many other top riders in the U.S. and Europe.”
The saddle company, based in Aiken, South Carolina, is the natural choice for the U.S. Dressage Team. Olympian Steffen Peters has been riding in Custom saddles for more than a decade. Peters’ own Custom signature series saddles include the Steffen’s Advantage, Steffen’s Advantage Buffalo, Steffen’s Advantage Monoflap, and the Wolfgang Solo. Many other top U.S. riders join Peters in endorsing Custom Saddlery saddles, including Pan American Gold Medalist Heather Blitz, U.S. Dressage Finals Grand Prix Champion Devon Kane, and FEI Rising Star Award winner and Grand Prix competitor Caroline Roffman. As the first choice of high-performance riders and amateurs alike, Custom Saddlery is a natural fit to partner with the USEF as the Official Saddle of the United States Dressage Team.
