Premier Equestrian is proud to announce Olympic show jumper Ashlee Bond as their newest brand ambassador. Bond is an elite equestrian and American Israeli show jumper who rides for Team Israel. Bond recently competed in the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo, where she represented Israel.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ashlee Bond as our newest Premier Equestrian Ambassador,” said Mark Neihart, CEO of Premier Equestrian. “Ashlee is a talented equestrian and an impressive woman, and we are proud to call her part of the Premier family. We have enjoyed getting to know Ashlee, and her father and trainer, Steve Bond, and we are excited to watch her career continue to excel in the future.”
Bond joins other notable Premier Equestrian Ambassadors including U.S. Dressage Riders and Olympic Silver Medalists Sabine Schut-Kery, Adrienne Lyle, and Steffen Peters, as well as Laura Graves, Nick Onoda, and others.
Premier Equestrian provided their high-performance Premier ProTex™ Footing Product and OTTO Sport Base Mats for the International Arena at Wellington International (formerly Palm Beach International Equestrian Center) in Wellington, Florida, where Bond has recently been competing in the annual Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF).
“With a lot of footing, I have to stud my horses behind for jump-offs or speed rounds because they turn so fast and I ride fast, but in the Premier Equestrian footing I have not had to stud once all season,” said Bond, commenting on the footing at the International Arena at PBIEC. “I have been riding as fast as ever, and the Premier Equestrian footing has felt so stable. I also feel like you get a lot of spring off the footing. And, I have not had any soundness issue jumping here. I could not be happier with the Premier Equestrian footing—it’s perfect.”
Premier Equestrian also recently provided footing products to upgrade the facilities at the Desert International Horse Park in Thermal, California, where Bond also competes.
“When I was at the Desert Horse Park in December, the footing was so much better,” said Bond. “My horses jumped beautifully on the Premier Equestrian footing there. I didn’t slip, I didn’t have any hesitation, and I didn’t have to stud. I was incredibly pleased with how well the Premier Equestrian footing performed there.”
