Wellington, Fla - Premier Equestrian is proud to announce its sponsorship of the USEF, as well as being named the Official Dressage Arena supplier of both the USEF and the Adequan FEI North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) presented by Gotham North. Already one of the largest suppliers of dressage arenas, horse jumps, arena footing and stable accessories in the country, Premier Equestrian continues to support top equestrians. Premier Equestrian is the Official Gold Sponsor of the NAJYRC and is the official dressage arena of the USEF and the Adequan FEI NAJYRC to be held July 15-30, 2014 in Lexington, Ky, and will also continue this sponsorship with the NAJYRC through 2015 and 2016.
“The United States Equestrian Federation is honored that Premier has chosen to sponsor the NAJYRC,” said USEF CEO John Long. “With Premier’s attention to detail and use of quality materials, we could not think of a better partner and look forward to and appreciate its continued support of the USEF.”
Premier Equestrian is known for its dressage arenas as it provided the dressage arena equipment for some of the most prestigious shows in the United States, including the new Global Dressage Festival in Wellington as well as for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, Dressage at Devon, Del Mar, and the 2013 US Dressage Finals. Premier Equestrian will also be featured at the NAJYRC as the official dressage arena of the USEF, US Dressage Finals, and the Global Dressage Festival. Premier’s website offers a complete line up of equestrian equipment, including everything needed to create a beautiful, world class dressage arena, from footing to letters.
Dressage Olympians Debbie McDonald and Adrienne Lyle turned to the professional footing specialists at Premier Equestrian to solve a 20-year-old footing issue. River Grove Farms, owned by Peggy and Parry Thomas in Sun Valley, Idaho, was built in 1981 and has four full sized arenas.
In July 2013, Premier Equestrian was called upon to solve the footing issue for these Olympic athletes in an unconventional way. The arenas were already equipped with a sufficient base and sand but were in need of a makeover. After a sieve test analysis was done on their existing sand by Premier’s staff, Premier Equestrian determined that the low cost and highly effective solution would be to add the ProTex footing to the existing sand surface. This solution was a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire footing; Premier was able to completely revitalize River Grove Farms’ arenas and provide exceptional footing for these International dressage competitors.
Heidi Zorn, President of Premier Equestrian, LLC stated, “Through our sponsorship with the USEF we hope to continue to bring the best products in the equestrian industry to prestigious competitions and to continue to support riders as they show and train.”
“Whichever Premier product you choose, your equine athletes will be performing with the best!” assures Zorn. “Our philosophy of always providing ‘premier’ products at the best possible price to the consumer works well in these times when horse owners want to cut expenses without giving up quality or jeopardizing their horses’ safety and well-being.”
