The USEA would like to welcome back Fun In The Saddle “FITS” as a sponsor of the SmartPak Equine/USA Training Three-Day and the USEA American Eventing Championships.
Winners of each of the SmartPak Equine/USEA Training Three-Day events across the nation will be awarded a pair of the FITS breeches. The T3DE series has proven to be one of the most popular series that the USEA has undertaken, as riders all across the U.S. compete in these historical classic-format events.
Competitors in every division at the USEA American Eventing Championships will also have a chance to win a pair of coveted FITS breeches. This year’s AEC will be held for the second year at Chattahoochee Hills in Fairburn, Georgia from September 8 -11.
“FITS is very excited to sponsor the American Eventing Championships and the Training Level Three-Day series again,” said Sheryl Rudolph of Fun In The Saddle,. These venues allow us to give back to the sport at all levels of eventing which is something very important to us. The prizes for 2011 allow the winner to choose either the new Beka Knee Patch breech or our the new Laura Full Seat breech. Both are offered in solid colors and in a fun denim for schooling. They are great additions to the entire FITS Collection. Check out the entire FITS collection at www.FITSriding.com.”
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.
