Washington, DC (October 19, 2015) – World Equestrian Brand’s sponsored rider, Allison Brock, has been tapped to perform a special musical freestyle dressage exhibition at the 57th annual Washington International Horse Show. Brock and her champion mount Rosevelt, owned by Fritz and Claudine Kundrun, will be the center of attention in the exhibition at one of America’s most prestigious indoor horse show.
Brock, a USDF Gold and Silver medalist based out of Wellington, Florida and Keswick, Virginia, and Rosevelt (Rotspon x Lore, Lauries Crusador XX) had an incredibly successful summer that included being named the Traveling Alternate for the 2015 United States Pan American Games Dressage Team. Being asked to be the sole dressage rider performing for an audience that has come to see professional jumpers from around the globe competing for more than half a million dollars in prize money is also certainly a highlight in what has been an incredible year for duo.
“Allison is sure to inspire the audience!” says World Equestrian Brands CEO Robin Moore. “When you see Allison and Rosevelt, even from a distance, they just stand out from the crowd of riders because they are so correct and there is so much harmony between them,” continued Moore. It is that same presence that made Brock an excellent choice as a rider for World Equestrian Brands to sponsor. World Equestrian Brands offers only the highest-quality products – like Amerigo saddles, Equilibrium leg protection and therapeutic products, Vespucci bridles, and E. A. Mattes saddle pads.
Deloitte, one of the world’s largest professional services firms, is sponsoring the special exhibition. Deloitte Tax Chief Corporate Development Officer Judith Sloan says, “Deloitte is committed to helping raise the profile of Olympic level athletes, and we believe that collaborating with WIHS is a perfect opportunity to accomplish that with their large spectator base and local community involvement. I can’t wait to see Allison and Rosevelt show the crowds at WIHS what they can do!”
WIHS President Victoria Lowell added, “We love featuring the best of horse sports across disciplines at WIHS, and the beauty and intricacy of dressage freestyle is a can’t-miss experience.”
You can catch Brock’s showcased performance on Saturday evening, October 24. Tickets are available at the Verizon Center Box Office and also on www.ticketmaster.com.
The Washington International Horse Show is one of the most prestigious equestrian sporting events in the U.S. More than 26,000 spectators attend the six-day show, which includes Olympic-level competition along with community and charity events in the heart of the nation’s capital.
“I’m really looking forward to riding at WIHS. It will be a great opportunity to give my horse valuable experience in an impressive and energized indoor environment, and at the same time showcase the sport of dressage in front of thousands of spectators,” said Brock. She continued, “I have to thank World Equestrian Brands for their continuous support my efforts at these important events and for their continued support of the sport of dressage.”
With the help of World Equestrian Brands, Brock is always prepared with the products that help her meet her goals. The Buena Vista, Virginia based company offers tack and equipment that many top riders like Brock have discovered to be the perfect tack for themselves and their horses.
