Wellington, FL – Demonstration riders attending the USDF FEI-Level Trainer’s Conference were dressing in style during the two-day Wellington conference, thanks to The Horse of Course, Inc, one of the nation’s premier tack shops specializing in dressage tack, clothing and supplies. The Trainer’s Conference was held January 16-17 and featured FEI 4* judge Christoph Hess. Beth Haist, CEO of The Horse of Course, said she is thrilled to be supporting the Trainer’s Conference, an event that Horse of Course has been involved in for the past ten years in addition to the USDF Symposium. “We decked out each of the riders in a lovely black polo shirt and fleece jacket with black trim all embroidered with our logo and the USDF Trainer’s Conference logo,” Haist said. “The Conference is a very important educational seminar for dressage riders, and that information is so important for the future of dressage.” The USDF Trainer’s Conference focused on perfecting the basic training of horse and rider at each level, work on training techniques and giving the attendees a chance to learn from a world class dressage trainer. “This conference is a really valuable asset for all who attend and I applaud the USDF for holding and furthering the education of so many riders and trainers,” Haist said.
In addition to taking part in the Trainer’s Conference, The Horse of Course is sponsoring the Horse of Course High Score Award during the 2012 Dressage season in Wellington. “Florida is certainly the place to be in the winter. The shows attract the top competition from around the world and we are very excited to be part of it,” Haist said.
The Horse of Course is a strong supporter of the equestrian community and travels across the country with their mobile store, attending horse shows and sponsoring classes. “Dressage riders from around the world rely on our products, clothing and saddles and we really do feel like we are partners in their show careers,” Haist said. “The Horse of Course carries an extensive selection of breeches, show clothes, custom shadbellies, as well as a complete selection of dressage tack. We also carry the most advanced dressage saddle ever made, The Sommer Flextra Eq and the new Sommer Spezial,” Haist said, adding that her husband, Marty Haist, is a saddler who travels to the shows to service customer’s saddle needs.
