WEB just awarded its annual Tack Matters Award at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival. Meet the winners, Kevin Kohmann and his horse Sir Savoy.
From a press release:
Wellington, FL (January 21, 2014) – “We’re ready and really excited,” said an ebullient Kevin Kohmann to World Equestrian Brands LLC’s Robin Moore after accepting the first World Equestrian Brands Tack Matters Award to be presented during the the Adequan Global Dressage Festival 1 CDIW and National show. World Equestrian Brands recognized Kohmann for exceptionally beautiful, well fitting, and functional tack, and awarded him a Vespucci bridle.
Kohmann, a full time resident of Wellington since leaving Hamburg, Germany and joining Oded Shimoni’s facility three years ago, was using the first week of the Adequan Global Dressage Festival to introduce Barry Giske’s 16.2-hand, seven year-old Oldenburg gelding, Sir Savoy (Sir Donnerhall x Hauptstutbuchriley) to Open competition. Riding the Fourth Level Test 1, the gentlemanly pair clinched a superb 70.751%.
“This was our test run,” Kohmann told Moore. “He’s still green but he behaved fantastic. Our next step is Prix St. Georges.” The WEB Tack Matters Award recognizes riders whose well fitting, beautiful and functional tack serves to inspire others to be their best.
“The award is steeped in our dedication to bring the best in tack brands to Florida and the United States,” said Robin Moore with World Equestrian Brands, the US distributor of leading brands EA Mattes, Equilibrium, Vespucci, and Amerigo, makers of the new Cervia Pinerolo II.
Each WEB Tack Matters Award includes a prize – such as a Vespucci bridle or EA Mattes saddle pad – from its exciting catalog lineup. “It’s very important to have good quality tack to use every day,” said Olympic and Nations Cup veteran (and former WEB Tack Matters Award winner) Lars Petersen.
“We are delighted to again present the Tack Matters Award here at the Global Dressage Fesvital,” Moore added. “A great dressage performance is a complete package. Tack matters in presenting that harmonious image.”
The Adequan Global Dressage Festival is the world’s largest international and national dressage circuit featuring 8 CDIs, including five CDI-Ws, one 4* and one 5*, the only non-championship CDIO Nations’ Cup in the Western Hemisphere, as well as weekly U.S. National events.
