Premier Equestrian - Horse Riding Sportsmanship Award
Pan Am Competitor Marco Bernal Wins Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award at Wellington Classic Dressage Fall Challenge I Show

Wellington, FL (September 21, 2011) – Colombian dressage rider Marco Bernal, who is headed to the Pan American Games in Mexico in October to compete for his native country on his Westphalian stallion Farewell IV, earned the Premier Equestrian Sportsmanship Award at the Wellington Classic Dressage Fall Challenge I Show. Thanks to his positive attitude and never-ending smile, just a few examples of Bernal’s good sportsmanship, the highly decorated dressage rider rode away with a new pair of German-designed Roeckl gloves from Premier Equestrian.

“Having Marco win our first Sportsmanship award of the 2011/2012 Dressage season was the perfect way to kick things off because I can’t think of anyone who exemplifies being a good sport more than Marco,” said Heidi Zorn, President of Premier Equestrian, a leading supplier of dressage arenas, horse jumps, arena footing and stable accessories. “I have watched Marco ride for many years and he is a super competitor with a super attitude. I am really pleased that he began the season for us and I also want to wish him the best of luck at the upcoming Pan Am Games.”

Bernal, who owns Marco Bernal International Dressage in Wellington, said he is looking forward to competing in Mexico. This will be the fifth time for Bernal to represent his country in the Pan Am Games. In 1999, the accomplished rider won a Silver medal at the Pan Am Games. He has also represented Colombia at the 2009 Rolex FEI World Cup in Las Vegas, competed in 2010 in the World Equestrian Games for Colombia and in 2010 competed in the Central American and Caribbean Games in Puerto Rico aboard Farewell, winning both the team Gold and the Individual Gold Medal.

Bernal was pleased with Farewell’s performance at the Wellington Fall show. “We rode a nice, solid, clean test. It was a little bit conservative because of the heat and we are still working on some details,” Bernal said, adding that it is always exciting when the horse does well as he trained Farewell himself. “I was very pleased with how Farewell did, but the goal is to have him peak in four weeks in Guadalajara.”

Bernal, who earned the highest award bestowed upon an athlete in Colombia when he was awarded the Athlete’s Award presented to him by the Colombian President, said he is looking forward to getting a new pair of gloves. Roeckl Gloves, which are available at Premier’s website and in their catalog, are available in the Regent Glove, an all leather sports design made from buttery soft leather with an elastic wrist and snap. Considered Roeckl’s most comfortable schooling glove, they are also great for driving. The Chester is a German-designed synthetic leather glove by Roeckl that combines style and versatility and features a textured palm and Velcro brand closure.

“Our Premier Sportsmanship Award is awarded to a rider who displays a high level of sportsmanship during a show. Thanks to being a great sport, they win a new pair of Roeckl gloves from Premier Equestrian,” Zorn said. “Marco is always a great sport and I know he will take his winning sportsmanship to Mexico.”

Premier Equestrian is considered America’s leading manufacturer and distributor of dressage arenas and were chosen as an official supplier to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in 2010. “Our products are world-class and they are well received by the international dressage community,” Zorn said.

Premier Equestrian also offers a complete line of horse jumps and horse jumping equipment. Including jump standards, gates, walls, jump cups, horse jump poles, sponsor jumps, and cavaletti.
