Aiken, SC – Custom Saddlery, makers of handcrafted custom-fit dressage, jumping and event saddles, is reminding all riders between the ages of 14 and 25 that there is still time to register for the Custom Saddlery’s Young Ambassador Talent Search for the opportunity to participate in exciting and valuable educational events as well as have a chance to win a brand new Custom Saddle. A selection committee comprised of 3 of Custom’s MVRs (Most Valuable Riders): Olympic Bronze Medalist Steffen Peters, Olympic Dressage Team Reserve and Pan Am Games Gold Medalist Heather Blitz, and 2011 Pan Am Gold Metal Team Alternate Endel Ots are counting down the days until they will determine the winners of the Custom Saddlery Young Ambassador Talent Search. The program is designed to educate the future stars of the dressage world about the value of proper saddle fit for horse and rider, and today’s stars have until June 15 to get their entries in! “Riders can go to the online application on our website, www.mysaddle.com, and nominate themselves or other riders they feel would benefit from a new custom saddle,” said Cary Wallace, CEO of Custom, adding that he is encouraging local youth groups, GMO’s, intercollegiate teams and farms to nominate their riders as well as call and arrange a saddle fitting seminar.
Winners will be selected based on the following criteria: need, talent and people’s choice. For more information on Custom Saddlery, and the Custom Saddlery Young Ambassador Program nomination form, visit their website at www.mysaddle.com.
