Wellington, FL (January 20, 2017) – Official dressage arena of U.S. Equestrian, Premier Equestrian, believes that it’s just as important to honor riders who display exemplary sportsmanship and dedication to equestrian sports as it is to honor those who earn the highest scores in the show ring.

As a longtime supporter of the iconic Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida, Premier Equestrian is once again spending the winter show season recognizing hard-working members of the dressage community who act as role models in their sport. The footing, dressage arena, and horse jump manufacturer is awarding selected riders with the Premier Equestrian Award throughout the 2017 Adequan Global Dressage Festival competition season.

The winner of this year’s first Premier Equestrian Award is successful trainer and competitor Betsy Steiner of Frenchtown, New Jersey and Wellington, Florida. Steiner is a U.S. Dressage Federation gold medalist and has represented the U.S. in the World Equestrian Games. She and her daughter, Jessie, have a barn full of top students and horses at all levels of training.

Steiner was competing Swiss W, owned by Whitney Bailey, when she earned the Premier Equestrian Award at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival. “I’m delighted to be able to show this lovely horse,” says Steiner. “She is a dream horse for me, and it’s her first season at the FEI level. This show was my first attempt at Prix St. Georges with her, and she behaved really well.” Steiner has plenty to keep her busy in Florida during the winter show circuit. “I have great horses, great owners, and great students,” she explains, “so we are really looking forward to a good season.” The Premier Equestrian award was a wonderful start to the weeks of competition ahead.

The 2017 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, now in its sixth year, is held at The Stadium at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center from January 12 to March 25. It includes seven weeks of CDI competition with concurrent national shows as well as four weeks of FEI World Cup qualifying events. The Premier Equestrian award will be presented several times throughout the season. Winners receive a tri-colored ribbon, an engraved plaque, and the official title of “Premier Equestrian.”

Steiner has this advice for dressage riders who are working hard to progress up the levels: “Continue to love your horse. Be patient, and first and foremost take care of and love your horse and continue to love the sport.”

Premier Equestrian shares Steiner’s love for horses and dressage. The company, based in Sandy, Utah, provides affordable, top-quality dressage arenas and arena footing, as well as horse jumps and other barn supplies. Premier Equestrian’s dressage arenas are used at top competitions such as the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships and the U.S. Dressage Finals. Premier Equestrian also provided the dressage and driving arenas for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

Premier’s dressage arena packages include rings built with maintenance-free, horse safe materials. The company also offers horse jumps, barn and stable equipment, gifts, DVDs, and books, including Betsy Steiner’s book, A Gymnastic Riding System Using Mind, Body, and Spirit, available for purchase on the Premier Equestrian website.

Mill Spring, NC (August 31, 2016) – As an Official Sponsor of the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC) in Mill Spring, North Carolina, Premier Equestrian is not only the title sponsor of the 0.80m Jumper division, but has also outfitted the venue with its American-made Sundance Dressage Arenas and arena accessories.

The Premier Equestrian materials will also frame future competition at the Colorado Horse Park, such as the Nutrena U.S. Eventing Association Championships this August 31–September 4, and the following dressage show on September 7–11. The company’s arena equipment has been previously used at world-class events such as the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Finals, the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, The Event at Rebecca Farm, and the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.

Also throughout this summer, Premier Equestrian has ensured that every horse and rider combination that has a clear round in the Tryon International Equestrian Center 0.80m Jumper division has been rewarded with a blue ribbon. Premier’s dedication to supporting equestrians of all levels, ages, and disciplines led the company to choose to sponsor the 0.80m Jumper division to help horses and riders climb their way up the training ladder, whether it’s a young student’s first jumper course or a trainer piloting a green prospect.
