Ariat Celebrates In Style At Blenheim International Horse Trials

THERE was a double celebration for quality footwear makers Ariat at the weekend with a second win at the Blenheim Petplan International horse trials for Team-Ariat and Georg Schumacher rider Lucinda Fredericks.

Ariat, a supporting patron sponsor of the Oxfordshire horse trials, also unveiled its full range to the public for the first time and was delighted with the response.

Lucinda, who now rides for Australia, notched up her second win at the event she calls her "happy hunting ground". After lying 13th following the dressage with Emma Robson's Headley Britannia, she moved the up the order with the fastest cross country time of the day and clinched the title with a clear round show jumping after leaping from sixth place overnight.

Lucinda won the first ever Blenheim horse trials with Just Jeremy and has been in the prize money here 14 times.

Philip Duff, Managing Director of the SMD Group, Ariat distributor in the UK, was on hand to present Lucinda, and those placed 2nd and 3rd, with their prizes, which included a pair of Ariat Cobalt Pro Series boots.

He said: "We are truly delighted with Lucinda's well -deserved win here. She is a tremendous ambassador for both the sport and for Ariat and Georg Schumacher. It was particularly pleasing to be able to present the winner's prize to a Team Ariat and Georg Schumacher rider."

He added: "This was the first time that we had shown the entire Ariat range to the public and the response was fantastic with both the new Work boots and the Western boot collection attracting huge interest."
