The two certificates will be given to the highest scoring riders in the CDI, one for the small tour and one for the large tour. “We are pleased to be able to support the HITS on the Hudson show ,” said Beth Haist of The Horse of Course, “And the Courtney King Dye Safety Award is an important incentive for riders to improve the overall safety of our sport.”The Horse of Course is based in Claremore, Oklahoma, and their mobile store travels the nation offering everything for the discriminating equestrian. From show supplies, bridles, saddles, and saddle pads to fashionable equestrian attire, breeches, jackets, shadebellys and accessories, The Horse of Course is a favorite stop for many of the nation’s dressage riders. Marty Haist is a master saddlefitter who is recognized as the go-to guy for Sommer Saddles but also does many on site saddle evaluations with all brands during the many shows and throughout the season.
“Our mobile set up is a wonderful attraction on the show grounds. If a rider loses a button on their coat or needs their stock tie tied, they should come and visit us,” Haist said. “We have a lot of new and exciting merchandise to show off, including our fabulous new line of Kentucky breeches. They are really slick and fabulous. We also have a new line of washable shadbellys, which are really wonderful.”

The line offers stylish fun polo shirts, jackets and breeches with crested embroidery, microfiber cottons in the latest fashion colors from Germany.
