The boot fits for one lucky Cinderella!
Like something out of a fairytale, 27 year old Katie Hughes from Wolverhampton revelled in her Cinderella moment after winning a pair of Charlotte Dujardin's Konigs boots at the LeMieux National Dressage Championships.
Katie was one of 280 people who visited the Classic Dressage stand at Stoneleigh Park between 18-21 September to see if the they could fit into the signed patent Sir boots as worn by the double Olympic, World and European champion. Participants who wished to enter the #KonigsforCinders competition were asked to make a small donation to the Teenage Cancer Trust, Charlotte's chosen charity, before sitting on the throne to try them on.
This year's Badminton winner, Sam Griffiths has teamed up with Zebra Products Ltd in a sponsorship deal that sees him supported by Italian saddle brand Amerigo, Uvex riding helmets, and Cavallo clothing and boots collection.
Based on the Dorset / Somerset border, Sam runs his string of 15 horses which include; his four star rides Paulank Brockagh (his Badminton winner) and Happy Times, together with the up and coming Favorit Z and Angelo IV.
Renowned German boot manufacturer Konigs has launched a new dressage model – the Noblesse. The boots have been designed on the back of feedback from leading dressage riders, including World number one, Charlotte Dujardin. Tapered at the ankle, the Noblesse have an extra stiff outside, while the inside calf area is very soft to allow for greater contact with the horse.
Made of the finest boxcalf leather and lined with soft napa leather, the soles are Good Year stitched. Available in various colours and with optional extras including; Swarovski-elements, patent shaft and embroidery, prices start from £1,100 which includes a zipper on the inside. Anyone purchasing these, or any other Konigs boots, during November can benefit from a special offer – where made to measure services and custom charges are included in the price (a saving of up to £232).
The NEW TRC Vento from Veredus
'They work brilliantly! Convinced and Converted'
''I have conducted an experiment today. I tacked up my horse and put one 'ordinary' neoprene brushing boot on one leg and the TRC Vento on the other, then went for an hour's hack. On taking off the boots, the neoprene was clammy inside and the horse's leg was warm and sticky. The inside of the TRC Vento felt the same as when I had put it on and the horse's leg was cool. They work brilliantly! I am convinced and converted.''
The uvex winter ear warmers slot simply into the sides of the helmet, keeping the cold, wind and rain out.
They are designed to so that your hearing is not impaired and therefore your balance affected, with an acoustic membrane, lined with a soft comfortable velvet polycotton inner which is soft against the skin. The outer side of the ear warmers comes in either a black or flesh colour which is unobtrusive against the skin, rather than blocking out that section of the face.
Bucas Rugs up the Dressage Superstars
Team GB Olympian Gold medallist Carl Hester is delighted to announce his sponsorship agreement with premium Irish rug brand BUCAS.
