Partners Rob Cullen and John Hartley have just returned from an absolutely fantastic trip to this year’s Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event having been joined and supported by a very strong team of highly qualified BCS Dealers from all over the United States.
John commented that the support from the dealers said everything about the ethos of the Black Country Saddles family with each dealer sharing their extensive saddlery knowledge with the never-ending queue of enthusiastic visitors to the stand.
Said John: “Dealers present included our long-time friends Patty Merli and Rip who brought along their very own “I love my Black Country Saddle” T-shirts that seemed to be worn by almost everyone walking by the longer the show went on!
“Alongside Patty and Rip were local dealer Bryan Lynch of Creature Comforts, Faye Flynn from Florida, Bob Cooper from Texas, Amanda Berges of The Saddle Tree, Ohio, Vet Thais McCoy from WA and Ann Jacobson from MN.”
Added Rob: “We are just back from an amazing Rolex Kentucky Horse Trials. It was by far our best attendance and we were delighted to have so much interest on the stand.
“The US launch of the new Dante collection with its unique seat positions proved a huge success.”
Regular visitors to this fantastic competition, Rob, John and the dealers were on hand to promote and explain the many benefits of riding in one of their saddles whether riding at the highest level or choosing a saddle for leisure activities.
This was the 36th consecutive year that Rolex Watch USA has sponsored the Kentucky Three-Day Event, the longest corporate sponsorship in horse sports.
