Salt Lake City, UT (January 3, 2019) – This Official Partnership is on especially solid footing: Heidi Zorn and Premier Equestrian® Inc. will return as a sponsor for the 2019 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival, January 9-March 31 at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida.
In November, Premier president and arena footing expert, Heidi Zorn accepted her second invitation to speak at the Adequan/US Dressage Federation Annual Convention and now, Zorn has announced that Premier Equestrian, the Official Dressage Arena of the USDF and Official Footing Supplier of the US Equestrian Federation, has renewed support for the world-renowned Adequan Global Dressage Festival and will again be presenting its coveted Premier Equestrian Award, recognizing those who are dedicated to the development and preservation of horse sport and have also impacted equestrian culture through their commitment to horsemanship and good sportsmanship.
2019 Premier Equestrian Award winners will be presented with a commemorative ribbon and silver tray, and join an elite roster of prior recipients including outstanding equestrians such as Laura Graves, Steffen Peters, Alex Granada, Adrienne Lyle, Bob and Debbie McDonald, Shannon Dueck and James Koford, Mette Larsen, Terri and Devon Kane, Kasey Perry-Glass, Betsy Steiner and Akiko Yamazaki, to name a few!
“Sand,” Zorn says, “is the most important ingredient for an equestrian surface. There are over 10,000 different sand names and types just in North America. Getting the correct sand is key and that’s why Premier Equestrian is proud to be a sponsor with the Global Dressage Festival and be available as a resource for its riders.”
“I always dreamed of having an arena like the ones I ride on at competitions all over the world and now I have one thanks to Premier Equestrian,” Laura Graves told Zorn shortly after its footing experts customized a blend of textiles and fibers to fit the 2016 US Team Bronze Medal Olympian’s needs.
Did North America’s leading expert on equestrian surfaces contribute to Graves’ string of record-setting victories at AGDF last season, including riding Verdades to the highest score ever achieved at AGDF during a ‘Friday Night Under the Stars’ Grand Prix Freestyle? Premier Equestrian co-founders Zorn and Mark Neihart will let the results – in Wellington and the world – speak for themselves.
Premier Equestrian manufactures and distributes a full line of arena footing additives (including Protex, Athletex, and ArenaAid), has developed a complete line of arena grooming equipment, and continues to lead the pack in educating horse people about footing materials, maintenance and grooming techniques.
