Trade in Existing Boots for a Credit towards a Custom Pair of Der Dau Dream Boots and Make Someone Else’s Dreams Come True!
New York, NY – November 13, 2014 – Two of New York’s iconic equestrian figures, Georgina Bloomberg and Joseph Der, Jr., have combined efforts to provide high quality riding boots to equestrians in need. Der Dau Custom Riding Boots has initiated a program to accept trade-ins of existing riding boots in exchange for a credit applied towards a future order of the company’s exclusive Dream Boots. Each used pair will then be refurbished as needed by Der Dau’s expert craftsman and donated to The Rider’s Closet.
Georgina Bloomberg explains, “I started the Rider’s Closet 8 years ago to be able to help riders afford the proper equipment and clothing for this sport. I have hopefully made a difference in many riders’ lives and made it easier for them to pursue their riding, whether they do it for pleasure or have the opportunity to compete. I have known Joseph Der for years now and always respected his work and his involvement in the horse show community. I am thrilled to be able to work with him and his company as well as humbled and overwhelmed by his generosity towards my program.”
Der Dau accepts all brands of boots that are in acceptable working condition. To determine the value of your trade-in, bring your boots in to one of Der Dau’s booths/showrooms, excluding third party dealers, at equestrian events across the U.S. and Europe.
Bloomberg, one of the nation’s finest young equestrian stars, just recently won the inaugural Central Park Grand Prix in her hometown of New York City and has since had top finishes in the LA Masters, Washington and the National Horse Show in Lexington, Kentucky. She also competed successfully this summer at the Global Champions Tour and with the United States Equestrian Team.
