Wednesday, December 16, 2009


West Palm Beach, FL – Olympian and international dressage rider Lisa Wilcox rode away the winner of the Trilogy Dressage Saddle “Best Seat” award at the Wellington Classic Holiday Challenge.

Wilcox drew the attention of the Trilogy selection committee while riding Queba HM and Que Macho, Lusitano’s owned by Ingred Lin, to take home the “Best Seat” award. Even though Wilcox has a long list of accomplishments to her name, she gave Trilogy Dressage Saddles a big “thank you, thank you, thank you” for being awarded the “Best Seat” award. “I’m honored to win this because you work long days on your seat and to be rewarded for it at the end of the day is pretty awesome,” Wilcox said.

Wilcox had even more to celebrate during the show when she and Queba won the Grand Prix Freestyle with a score of 74.500. Queba is currently ranked third in the nation at Grand Prix, and Wilcox is hoping to qualify him for the 2010 World Equestrian Games.

The Trilogy “Best Seat” award was presented to Wilcox for having an effective secure seat, a well-fitting saddle that enhances the performance for horse and rider and for overall appearance on the horse. “Lisa is a beautiful rider and she fits our criteria perfectly,” said Debbie Witty, President of Trilogy Dressage Saddles. “We love recognizing rider’s with our ‘Best Seat’ award, and it is always fun to recognize a prominent rider like Lisa.”

Witty, a qualified saddle fitter from the Society of Master Saddlers of England, is accustomed to assisting prominent riders as she has spent years helping Debbie McDonald, Shannon Peters, Courtney King-Dye, George Williams and Guenter Seidel with their saddle fitting needs. Trilogy Dressage Saddles are built in England by some of the most experienced craftsmen in the world. They feature a British tree made of laminated Beechwood, and a specially tanned hide from England that offers the rider an elastic broken-in feel.
