Ocala, FL (July 22, 2011) – Team Weber is currently in Europe representing the United States in the world of combined driving. As the United States’ most decorated team brings their award-winning prowess to the international stage, they will be proudly decked out in Ariat clothing. Ariat International, the leading performance footwear and apparel brand for equestrian athletes around the world, is pleased to announce they are joining combined driver Chester Weber’s team of sponsors.

“The quality and fit of the Ariat products are perfect for us,” said Weber. “We wore shirts, vests, jackets and hats from Ariat for the last championships and really liked them. We train in all-weather situations and their clothing is perfect for that.”

Weber, the eight-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Combined Driving Champion who is based out of Live Oak Plantation in Ocala, is a driving force in the world of combined driving.  He recently proved to be unstoppable overseas, where he went two-for-two by capturing wins at CAI Altenfelden in Austria and the CAIO Vecses in Hungary.  His European tour then continued with the 2011 World Equestrian Festival CHIO in Aachen, Germany, where Team Weber put in a brilliant performance, placing third overall.  After such success in Europe, Weber is currently tied for first place in the FEI World Cup standings.  The European tour wraps up with the CAI Riesenbeck in July, a venue in which he has already found great success.

Weber has competed for the U.S. in three World Equestrian Games and was part of the U.S. Silver Medal Team at the 2010 Games in Kentucky. Weber also earned an Individual Silver Medal in the Four-in-Hand World Driving Championships in Beesd, The Netherlands, making him the first American to ever win an Individual Medal at the World Driving Championships.

“I am thrilled that Ariat has joined Team Weber’s list of sponsors. Our sponsors are a huge part of our program and help us to be competitive on the international stage. We will proudly wear our Ariat clothing,” Weber said. “It definitely takes a team to keep our operation going and I appreciate each and every sponsor who stands behind Team Weber.”

Tabatha Nelson, of Ariat International, said the apparel and footwear company is pleased to join Team Weber as a sponsor. “Chester has been wearing Ariat products for quite a while and our goal is to keep all of his team looking great. While Team Weber is in Europe, Ariat plans to have them decked out in the style befitting national champions who are going to conquer the international driving world,” she said.

Weber plans to return to the U.S. to defend his USEF National title at the Laurels in Unionville, Pennsylvania in September. For more information on Weber and his combined driving team, visit their website at For more information on Ariat, visit their website at
