The first-ever Southeast Medal Finals was an enormous success. Organizers James Lala and Bob Bell are grateful to the many sponsors of this significant new show. Well-known for their contributions to the equestrian community, C. M. Hadfield's Saddlery was one of many sponsors who graciously supported the show.
"We were very proud to support the very first Southeast Medal Finals," Cindy Hadfield said. "Everyone is raving about the wonderful show James and Bob put together. We were happy to have a part in it."
C. M. Hadfield's Saddlery began in 1978 in Syracuse, NY. Hadfield's strives to have the best, most innovative high-end merchandise possible. Hadfield's has outfitted leisure riders to Olympians, providing everything from clothing to bridles and saddles. They have proudly sponsored great riders including Molly Ashe, Leslie Burr-Howard, Norman Dello Joio, Tim Grubb, James Lala and McLain Ward.
Hadfield's has a large inventory of everything for the equestrian, including unique and specialty products unlike those in any other tack store. In their quest to be the best, Hadfield's developed two very distinctive product lines: the Cynthia Munro Clothing Collection and Hadfield Bridleworks Ltd., their line of bridles and fine tack accessories crafted in their own Walsall, England, factory.
Hadfield's donated one of their most sought-after styles, the Hadfield Bridleworks raised, fancy-stitched bridle with laced reins, which was presented to Margaret Collins, winner of the first Southeast Medal Finals Junior Class.
"We congratulate Margaret on her accomplishment and hope that she will enjoy our bridle and have continuing success," shared Hadfield.
Hadfield bridles have become the industry standard, many times copied but never surpassed. Many have come to rely on Hadfield Bridleworks for uncompromising quality and consistency, including such notables as Beacon Hill Stables, Erika Belden, James Benedetto, Georgina Bloomberg, Jane Clark, Missy Clark and John Brennan, Deeridge Farm and the Jacobs family, Hillary Dobbs, Gary Duffy, Joe Fargis, Frank Madden, Nick Skelton, Spy Coast Farm, Scott Stewart, and Geoff Teall, to name a few.
