Pessoa Sponsors Hunter Seat Medal Finals For Ninth Year

Pessoa has signed on as the sponsor of the Pessoa/USAE Hunter Seat Medal Finals for the ninth consecutive year. The Finals will be held at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg, PA, on October 10.

The Pessoa/USAE Hunter Seat Equitation Medal is a coveted prize and proves to be a significant stepping-stone for international competitions as 30% of past winners have gone on to represent the U.S. internationally including Nicole Shahinian-Simpson, Mark Leone, Conrad Homfeld and George Morris. Last year over a thousand Hunter Seat Equitation Medal qualifying classes were held at USA Equestrian recognized horse shows throughout the country, resulting in approximately 400 young riders qualifying for the event.

Pessoa’s involvement with the Hunter Seat Medal Finals began initially with Eisers, then Miller Harness Company and is now with English Riding Supply. It is the Pessoa’s belief in the American system of classical Equitation that makes this sponsorship so special to them. English Riding Supply is the distributor of Pessoa saddles in the United States.

USA Equestrian Inc., as the National Equestrian Federation of the U.S., is the regulatory body for the Olympic and World Championship sports of dressage, driving, endurance, eventing, reining, show jumping, and vaulting, as well as 19 other breeds and disciplines of equestrian competition. As

The vision of USA Equestrian is to provide leadership for equestrian sport in the United States of America, promoting the pursuit of excellence from the grass roots to the Olympic Games, based on a foundation of fair, safe competition and the welfare of its horses, and embracing this vision, to be the best national equestrian federation in the world.
