Lexington, KY (June 20, 2012) – World Equestrian Brands, the United States distributor of Amerigo saddles and strap goods, Amerigo Vega saddles, Vespucci, E.A. Mattes and Equilibrium products, is pleased to announce they are partnering with Gallops Saddlery, based in Tigard, Oregon, to sponsor the Area VII riders as they head to the North American Junior/Young Riders Championships (NAJYRC) in Kentucky. NAJYRC takes place July 19-22 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
“World Equestrian Brands is excited to team up with Gallops Saddlery and sponsor the riders from Area VII,” said Robin Moore, President of World Equestrian Brands, LLC. “We love giving back to the equestrian community and one of our favorite ways is by sponsoring young, up-and-coming riders. I know they are all looking forward to competing at NAJYRC and we want to congratulate them on qualifying and wish them the best of luck. It’s a great journey and a worthy accomplishment to compete at NAJYRC and World Equestrian Brands is proud to support these young riders in their quest for success.”
World Equestrian Brands, along with Gallops Saddlery, will provide the Area VII team with E.A. Mattes Square Pads. Mattes is the world’s leading manufacturer of sheepskin (delete this: brand) pads, offering a variety of pads from the Euro-Fit Pad to the Velvet Pad Collection to the Mattes Square Pads. The Mattes Square Pads offer the same benefits of the half pad, but in a full-pad style. The sheepskin panels offer protection while the “bare,” or unlined flaps minimize bulk under the rider’s leg. The flaps are quilted with a layer of Poly-Flex®, a material that absorbs energy and eliminates bounce.
“American eventer Allison Springer, who has been named to the short list for the 2012 Olympic Games, uses (delete: one of) our Mattes Square Pads and loves them,” Moore said “I am certain the Area VII riders will not only enjoy the Mattes Square Pads, but their horses will reap the benefits of riding in them.”
Moore added, “I am (delete: also) very pleased that World Equestrian Brands has the opportunity to work with Gallops Saddlery. Diane Snow and Patty Cameron, the owners of Gallops Saddlery are long time friends and business associates, and it is always wonderful to work with. We will also be teaming up with them at the great Event at Rebecca Farm in July.”
