Wellington, FL (January 25, 2012) – World Equestrian Brands knows excellent equipment that fits the well and functions properly for the horse and rider are essential to the success of the team, and is pleased to announce the third year of the popular Tack Matters Awards, which will be presented at all 10 events during the 2013 Adequan Global Dressage Festival(GDF). The partnership with GDF, one of the largest and richest international dressage series in the world, fits the two organizations perfectly, as both WEB and the GDF showcase the best of the best.

To celebrate the spirit of great riding and turnout, World Equestrian Brands will present Tack Matters Awards throughout the 2013 circuit, recognizing riders for well fitting, well turned out, and beautiful tack. Each winner will take home a Vespucci bridle from World Equestrian Brands.

Robin Moore of World Equestrian Brands explains that they strongly support all aspects of equestrian sport. “We are dedicated to the equine industry and most importantly the horses. We are constantly taking steps to be involved in the industry’s many facets, one of which is helping create awareness of the importance of tack, and how it can influence the horse and rider,” said Moore.
WEB is the US distributor of Amerigo, EA Mattes, Vespucci and Equilibrium products, and therefore, horses and riders are assured of the highest quality products available when choosing from World Equestrian Brands. Moore continues, “Along with the great manufacturers whose products we distribute, we are continually reaching out to riders and retail stores to listen to their needs and the problems they are trying to solve with their equipment.”

The high performance saddles and strap goods from Amerigo are unrivaled worldwide. Designed by Peter Menet, Amerigo saddles are handcrafted, and are designed using a proven approach by integrating the biomechanics of horse and rider to improve comfort and performance. Understanding the dynamics of motion and what the horse’s body needs to be capable of at the top levels of all disciples is Amerigo’s strength. All Amerigo saddles are fit using a unique measuring system to ensure the proper fit for both horse and rider. Amerigo’s goal is to provide comfort for the horse and rider and to enable them to be balanced and free to perform. Amerigo is endorsed by a number of champions, including Olympic eventers Allison Springer, Kim Severson, and Buck Davidson, showjumping Olympic Gold Medalist Steve Guerdat and Edwina Alexander, as well as Aaron Vale and Kim Prince, and dressage riders include Olympic Gold Medalist Carl Hester, Kyra Kyrklund, Ali Brock, who has just returned from training with Kyra, and Pierre St. Jacques.
