The Horse Of Course And NCDCTA/Region 1: A Golden Opportunity

The Horse of Course, Inc. is proud to demonstrate its dedication to the equestrian sport communities through support of the Great American Insurance Group/USDF 2012 Region 1 Dressage Championships and North Carolina Dressage and Cross Training Association (NCDCTA) Harvest Moon Dressage shows, November 1-4, at the Senator Bob Martin Agricultural Center, in beautiful Martin County, Williamston, NC.

The Horse of Course, Inc., as a Gold Sponsor, will provide coupons to The Horse of Course for all of the competitors, and participate in the 'Put Your Best Hoof Forward' Fashion Walk and Vendor Wine & Cheese Walk, Friday evening, November 2.  The four-day long equestrian celebration offers some of the most coveted opportunities in dressage, including official qualifying competitions for the FEI North American Junior and Young Riders’ Championships and Collecting Gaits Farm/USEF National Pony Rider, Junior, Young Rider and Brentina Cup Championships, 2013 Region 1 Great American Insurance Group Championships, and 2013 BLM Championships.

"We are very excited to continue our support of dressage riders across the country by participating in the Region 1 Championships and NCDCTA Harvest Moon show," said Beth Haist, CEO of The Horse of Course, Inc. "We have everything the dressage rider could need, from tack and accessories to the most recent fashions. My husband, Marty Haist, is a certified saddlefitter ready to meet any of the riders' tack needs, and our mobile unit features fashion forward riding attire, unique accessories, and anything a rider would need to show. The Horse of Course is proud to sponsor the Region 1 Championships and NCDCTA, as well as to participate in the Fashion Show and Vendor Walk Wine & Cheese, which fits perfectly with The Horse of Course's great line of equestrian fashions."  Earlier in September, while sponsoring the NEDA Fall Festival, The Horse of Course made a memorable -- and generous -- fashion statement by bedecking 14 judges and 22 members of the New England Dressage Association in Hermes-style scarves and ties.

One of the nation’s premier tack shops specializing in dressage tack, clothing and supplies, and a favorite stop for many of the nation's leading dressage riders, The Horse of Course is based in Claremore, Oklahoma, and offers everything for the discriminating equestrian: from show attire, bridles, saddles, gloves, breeches to fashionable equestrian attire and accessories. The Horse of Course offers the ultimate collection in apparel to keep every rider fashionably dressed, including these classics: Gersemi, Laurel Burch, Pikeur, Ariat, Kentucky, Goode Rider, Red Barn, Vespucci, Ovation, Intec, Kerrits, Romfh, Pure Lime, USG and Windsor.  Marty Haist is also a master saddlefitter who specializes in the Sommer Flextra EQ and will do on-site saddle evaluations at the shows Horse of Course attends during the season. The Horse of Course mobile unit travels to shows across the northeast, and is known for its commitment to its dressage community through sponsorships and award programs.  Learn more about The Horse of Course at www.thehorseofcourse.com.
