Tack Matters Award Returns To Global Dressage Fest

World Equestrian Brands will once again sponsor the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival. The company is pleased to announce the return of the Tack Matters Award during the upcoming show series.

Presented for the fourth consecutive year at this festival, the award will recognize riders who show their horses in well turned out, properly fitted tack, to match the grandeur of one of the largest, richest dressage series in the world.

Throughout the series, World Equestrian Brands — the U.S. distributor of world-class, high-performance products by the popular brands Amerigo, Vespucci, E.A. Mattes and Equilibrium — will present the Tack Matters Award, which will include a product from one of its collection of brands. The award is designed to showcase the best, and inspire riders to match talent with horse-sense and style.

“We are delighted to work with the Global Dressage Festival and present the World Equestrian Brands Tack Matters Award,” said Robin Moore, president of World Equestrian Brands. “A stylish dressage performance has to be a complete package. To perform at the highest levels, horses and riders need the equipment that can provide a technical advantage. Our goal is to supply that equipment by bringing these brands to the United States.”

The 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington is the perfect venue for World Equestrian Brands to showcase what high-performance equestrian pairs look like. Drawing in top dressage riders from around the world — including Allison Brock, Laura Graves, Steffen Peters, Laura Tomlinson and Michael Klimke — and featuring 10 weeks of premier equestrian sport with more than $650,000 in prize money, the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival is an event large enough to match World Equestrian Brands’ dedication to equestrian sports.

This year’s series started Thursday, Jan. 8 and continues through March 29. It will feature four CDI-W rated shows, a CDI 4*, a CDI 5* and the Western Hemisphere’s only non-championship CDIO Nation’s Cup.
