Wellington, FL (April 7, 2016)While many dressage enthusiasts have their day-to-day lives consumed by training and competition schedules, Jennifer Baumert balances her hectic equestrian life while still finding time to give back in substantial ways to the dressage community. Not only is Baumert a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze, Silver, and Gold medalist, but she also works hand in hand with the USDF program for Instructor and Trainer Certification. Her support for the development of young riders and substantial fundraising efforts for The Dressage Foundation further add to her contributions to dressage. While recently competing at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida during the season’s finale Week Twelve, Baumert was recognized for her accomplishments and achievements with the Premier Equestrian Award.

Premier Equestrian, a company known for being a top manufacturer of advanced arena equipment, footing, and jumps, continually strives to recognize equestrians for their outstanding accomplishments in and out of the show ring. Premier Equestrian selected equestrians over the twelve-week Adequan Global Dressage Festival series who exhibited the sportsmanship and horsemanship that contributes to an overall positive atmosphere in the dressage world. Premier Equestrian proudly presented Baumert with an engraved plaque, tri-color ribbon, and the title of “Premier Equestrian” after her recent top-three placing with her horse Ramiro in the FEI Prix St. Georges CDI 1* presented by YellowBird Farm.

Baumert, who is based at her own Cloverlea Dressage in Columbia, Connecticut, has partnered with the USDF frequently, volunteering as a demonstration rider in numerous National Symposiums and Trainer Conferences. She has also received several top ten Horse of the Year awards. Baumert has been actively involved in the development of the USDF Certification program for Instructors and Trainers since its inception, and assists in paving the path for her fellow dressage riders. “I went through the first round of the certification process and passed,” Baumert said. “Now I am trying to help build the program and encourage more people to get involved. It’s a great learning tool, and I want all of the up and coming riders and young riders to give it a try.”

When competing as a young rider, Baumert represented the United States at the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships from 1988 through 1991. Ever since, she has been paying back to the development of young riders across the nation through organizing and volunteering with Young Rider programs such as serving as the Young Rider Coordinator for the Connecticut Dressage Association board. She also volunteered as roving trainer for several years at the Northeast Junior Young Rider Championships, and donated countless lessons to the New England Dressage Association (NEDA) regional Young Rider program. “I have always had a special interest in teaching and developing young riders. I love teaching young riders, and I am proud of my students,” Baumert commented.

Furthermore adding to her resume of impressive contributions to dressage is Baumert’s fundraising efforts with The Dressage Foundation. Baumert and The Dressage Foundation share the core values of supporting the advancement of dressage in the United States with generous donations that help riders, instructors, trainers, breeders, and judges of the dressage community. “I have been helping my mother, Beth Baumert, who is the President of The Dressage Foundation, with their fundraising efforts,” Baumert said. “The Dressage Foundation is a great group of people and it has been just super fun.”

Premier Equestrian found Baumert’s ideals and endeavors extraordinarily impressive, and commended her for her achievements thus far. Premier Equestrian was proud to honor Baumert and hopes that this award will let competitors know that their outstanding attitudes are noticed and appreciated, and will encourage all riders to follow in the footsteps of “Premier Equestrians” like Baumert.

Premier Equestrian was proud to offer continued support of the dressage community as an Official Partner and Sponsor of the 2016 Adequan Global Dressage Festival show series. The company offers high-quality and affordable products to dressage riders— including premier dressage arenas, world-class arena footing, revolutionized horse jumps, and accessories.
