Dyer Equestrian LLC Sponsors Equitation And Pony Divisions At 2013 Tampa Equestrian Series

The 2013 Tampa Equestrian Series is pleased to announce that Dyer Equestrian LLC is the sponsor of this year's Equitation and Pony divisions, as well as the High Point Pony Rider Award. Dyer Equestrian ("Dyer"), a retailer of premium equestrian apparel for women, children and toddlers, introduces a fresh and fashion forward approach to the equestrian apparel market while maintaining the heritage that defines equestrian sport. The Tampa Equestrian Series began on Wednesday, March 27, and will continue through April 6, 2013, at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, FL.

Dyer Equestrian, a retailer of premium equestrian apparel for women, children and toddlers, introduces a fresh and fashion forward approach to the equestrian market while maintaining the heritage that defines equestrian sport. Dyer offers its customers a high fashion equestrian garment with a focus on fit, cutting edge fabric technologies and strategically placed details designed to enhance the functionality of the garment. Dyer offers the wearer versatility and adjustability with a precision that creates a semi-custom fit.

This year, Dyer Equestrian will be sponsoring the Pessoa/USEF Hunt Seat Medal, the ASPCA Maclay, the WIHS Hunter and Jumper phases, and the 2013 Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search. The company will also sponsor the Small, Medium, and Large Pony Hunter divisions, the Small, Medium and Large Green Pony Hunter divisions. Their generosity also includes sponsoring a special award for the High Point Pony Rider.

LeeAnne Colamarino and Erin Krasner, the founders and creators of Dyer Equestrian, are very excited about their sponsorship of the Tampa Equestrian Series. "We started the company as a way to give back to the equestrian community and offer traditional fashion in the sport," they explained. "The Pony and Equitation classes are a perfect fit for our brand because our clothing caters to those disciplines. For example, we line the underside of our show jacket collar so that you can pop your collar and have a flash of color, or you can turn it down and be traditional for the equitation."

Dyer Equestrian is based in Florida, while the clothes are manufactured in New York. "We are always excited to do anything in our home state. A sponsorship of the Tampa Equestrian Series is a great fit for us," they concluded.    

The Tampa Equestrian Series kicked off its two weeks of competition with the Tampa Bay Classic on Wednesday March 27, and it will run though Sunday, March 31.
