Vazquez was thrilled to win the Sportsmanship Award from Premier Equestrian. Vazquez is at the Winter Equestrian Festival for the circuit and won the Premier Sportsmanship Award while competing Messeto, a horse owned by a client, in the 3”3’ Pre Green division. “Messeto is green and this was his first shot at showing but he did great,” Vazquez said, adding that the gelding was imported from Europe. “I know he will really progress during the circuit.”
Heidi Zorn, President of Premier Equestrian, congratulated Vazquez on winning the Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award. “Being a good sport is certainly the mark of a successful rider and Premier is pleased to highlight good sports throughout the Winter Equestrian Festival,” she said. “I know Jodi will enjoy her gift certificate from Premier. We have many wonderful products she will be able to pick from because our website is a horse lover’s dream come true.”
Zorn added that Premier sponsored the Sportsmanship Award last year and that they were thrilled to be sponsoring it again. “We offer a fantastic line of dressage equipment, jumping equipment, rubber mats, barn and stable accessories, books, DVDs, and footing. Every winner of the award will be able to find something they need and really want among our selection,” she said.
Zorn said that Premier also offers a complete line of kid jumps, jump accessories and toys for young equestrians. “It seems to be a universal theme that horse kids love to jump on foot over jumps and they especially love kid-size jumps,” she said. “You don’t have to look far at WEF to see kids having a great time jumping over jumps. We are excited with our new line of jumps and know that kids are jumping for joy over them.”
Premier Equestrian also offers a complete line of horse jumps and horse jumping equipment. Including jump standards, gates, walls, jump cups, horse jump poles, sponsor jumps, and cavaletti.
