Five Lucky Riders to Win Free Saddles-
Custom Saddlery To Kick-off The
All American Saddle Fit Challenge
Aiken, SC – Custom Saddlery, whose list of riders include; Steffen Peters, Sue Blinks, Hilda Gurney, Leslie Reid, and Heather Blitz, among many others, has announced they will give away five Custom Saddlery dressage saddles as part of the All American Saddle Fit Challenge. The program is designed to bring awareness to the fact that all saddles need to fit both the horse and rider properly. The company's Dressage line includes Wolfgang™ brand saddles as well as the extremely unique Icon™ line of monoflap dressage saddles.
"We are excited to start the All American Saddle Fit Challenge, and want to encourage all riders, no matter what discipline, to make sure their saddle fits their horse properly," said Cary Wallace, President and Master Saddle Fitter at Custom Saddlery. "As part of our Saddle Fit Challenge, five lucky people will win one of our custom made dressage saddles".
Cary, head of design and research at Custom Saddlery, has introduced some of the best dressage saddles on the market and has also gained the confidence and endorsement of some of the finest riders in the world. "We believe every saddle should fit both horse and rider. All of our saddles are anatomically designed for this purpose and hand-crafted from the finest leathers". "Our saddles are made with the idea that people want more out of their saddles and we do everything in our power to accommodate them. A lot of saddles are "flocked" for the horse, but at Custom Saddlery, we build the trees and focus on the fit and shape of the tree to that of the horse. We don't have tree sizes on our custom fitted saddles. We fit them so there is no size. Whatever the horse's build is dictates the tree size."
There is no purchase required to enter the All American Saddle Fit Challenge and winner's names will be drawn at random. Riders wishing to enter the contest can visit the USDF Member's Lounge and fill out an entry form during the 2010 AllTech FEI World Equestrian Games. "We expect Steffen Peters and possibly one or two of other top riders to be competing at the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky this year, so it seemed like the perfect place to officially kick-off the All America Saddle Fit Challenge," said Cary.
Riders can also fill out a questionnaire online or fill out an entry at any show where our fitters or booth are set up," Cary said. "Another way to enter is to have a Custom Saddlery fitter come out to your barn or stalls for an evaluation. That will automatically enter you into the contest."
More information about the All American Saddle Fit Challenge will be available at each GAIG/USDF REGIONAL Championship this year and at the USDF Annual Convention in Jacksonville, Florida in December. According to Cary, the company will award the first Custom Saddle prize at the USDF Convention this December.
