Week 8 of the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) is Premier Equestrian Week, and Premier Equestrian is proud to be the featured sponsor of several classes including the FEI $150,000 Nations Cup CSIO4* on March 5. The Nations Cup is a unique, two round competition for teams of three or four riders from countries all around the world.
“We at Premier Equestrian are thrilled to be the featured sponsor for this exciting event,” said Heidi Zorn, president and co-founder of Premier Equestrian.
Premier Equestrian is the Exclusive Footing Products Supplier for the International Arena at WEF. In 2020, Premier Equestrian was honored to be chosen by Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP) to upgrade the footing in Palm Beach International Equestrian Center’s International Arena. Premier Builder Travis Gould of JTWG Inc. installed OTTO Sport Base Mats and Premier ProTex® Footing, which immediately received rave reviews. These products provide competitors with a stable surface that holds up to heavy use, ensuring each rider encounters similar conditions in the ring during their round. Premier ProTex® Footing has also been installed in two additional arenas for 2021.
“Palm Beach International Equestrian Center is the finest show facility in the world, and it is quite an honor to have our products there,” said Zorn.
Premier ProTex® Footing offers support, rebound, grip, and protection, while OTTO Sport Base Mats provide stability, help absorb shock, and drain heavy rains flawlessly. Premier Equestrian is the exclusive North American distributor for OTTO Sport Base Mats. All Premier Equestrian products improve performance, health, and safety from the ground up.
