The USEA is delighted to welcome back Fun In The Saddle “FITS” as a sponsor for 2013. FITS will be sponsoring the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships for the fourth year, and in addition the company will be sponsoring the Adequan USEA Gold Cup for the first time.
Winners of each of the 11 Adequan USEA Gold Cup qualifying events will take home a pair of FITS PerforMAX breeches. Competitors in every division at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships will also have a chance to win a pair of coveted FITS breeches. This year’s AEC will be held at the Texas Rose Horse Park in Tyler, TX from September 26-29.
“FITS is excited to be supporting the USEA in 2013 as sponsors of the AEC and the Gold Cup series,” said Sheryl Rudolph of Fun In The Saddle. “Event riders were among the very first to recognize the performance advantage that FITS brings to the rider via our technically superior riding wear. We are excited to pay it forward with these sponsorships. GOOD RIDING!”
FITS is an Oregon based company dedicated to the art and science of riding apparel. Known for its PerforMAX™ leather technology, FITS riding wear is the first and only choice for thousands of equestrian athletes. FITS offers a several styles of distinctive breeches, tech shirts, and stock ties, in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit nearly anyone’s fancy.
The unique and comfortable design of FITS breeches makes them one of the top choices for eventers. The segmented leather panels on the seat allow for maximum range of motion without restriction. This enables riders to spread their seat bones for a deeper, more secure position in the saddle. Soft, supple deerskin with tiny perforations creates more surface resistance against the saddle, giving much better grip than flat or imitation leather or suede. The holes also increase stretch capacity and freedom of motion, and allow for significantly better leather breathability than any breech on the market today.
