Wellington, FL - Three times is a charm for The Horse of Course, Inc., which will return for the third year to the 2014 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, January 8 – March 30 in Wellington to again sponsor The Horse of Course High Score Awards recognizing the highest-scoring rides of the GDF CDI series. The Horse of Course High Score Award winners will receive ribbons acknowledging their pinnacle achievement and embroidered saddle pads courtesy of The Horse of Course. Horse of Course’s sponsorship of the circuit and complete line of everything needed to compete, from fashion to the new FEI Dressage Tests, make their mobile store one of the busiest places on the showgrounds. “We are in our third year recognizing the highest scoring CDI horses and riders and only grow to enjoy it more. To watch our sport and its talent blossom each season, and recognize and encourage such talent, is our privilege,” said The Horse of Course, Inc. CEO, Beth Haist. “We are always looking to give back and support our dressage community.”
The Horse of Course has everything today's fashionably competitive rider needs to dress for success in the arena and serves a five-state area, including Florida, with a convenient mobile unit, attending – and sponsoring – horse shows. Horse of Course is also a one stop shop for finding all of the newly revised FEI dressage tests, which will go into effect this season. They also wanted to remind all competitors of the new FEI Entry System, which will go into effect for the dressage community on January 1, 2014. For the Wellington show season, the entry dates outlined in the new system must be adhered to, and beginning April 1 with the Golden State Dressage Festival CDI3*, athletes will be required to enter all FEI events through the USEF, which will provide a web based portal for athletes to submit their entries.
“Dressage riders from around the world have come to rely on finding our products, clothing and saddles at the GDF, and we really have begun to feel like partners in many of their show careers. We also will have all of the new tests available, which will no doubt be very important for riders this season,” Haist added. The Horse of Course has a complete selection of tack and apparel for the English rider: show clothing, stable accessories, training equipment, gifts, books and equestrian sportswear.
“We have continued to innovate, resulting in our own leading-edge design saddles through master saddle fitter and co-owner of The Horse of Course, Marty Haist, who is available to fit your saddle on site at the show or at your farm, and through the latest in equestrian fashion and exceptional products. We'll be here to help you find what you need quickly so you can spend more time in the saddle – and earning those high scores!” said Beth Haist.
