SAUGERTIES, New York, Sept. 16–Danielle Gavriluk of Salt Marsh Farm in Massachusetts won the Trilogy Dressage Saddle “Best Seat” award at New England Dressage Association’a Fall Festival CDI-W.
Gavriluk and her Hanoverian Wolkenspieler drew the attention of the Trilogy selection committee during their Prix St. Georges test to take home the “Best Seat” award.
“I was very, very flattered to receive such a nice award, especially out of so many riders,” Gavriluk said. Gavriluk is a USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist and FEI competitor, who trains with Gerd Zuther, and has competed many horses through the FEI levels. Gavriluk imports, trains and sells young Hanoverians at her Salt Marsh Farm.
Gavriluk was presented with an embroidered quarter sheet from Trilogy President Deborah Witty and Trilogy sponsored rider Cesar Parra. “Out of the hundreds of riders at the Region 8 show, the Trilogy Best Seat selection committee felt that Danielle stood out from the crowd,” Witty said. “Not only did Danielle look beautiful in the saddle, but her horses were comfortable and happy with an excellent connection through their bodies.”
The Trilogy “Best Seat” award is presented to the rider that best fit the criteria of an effective secure seat; well-fitting saddle that enhances performance for horse and rider, and overall appearance on the horse.
“Danielle fit our criteria perfectly,” Witty said, adding that Trilogy looks forward to continuing to present the “Best Seat” award at the Region One Championships and throughout the season at the CDI’s in Florida.
In addition to presenting the “Best Seat” award, Trilogy Dressage Saddles also sponsored the Saturday night party at the NEDA Fall Festival. “It was a wonderful party and everyone had a great time,” Witty said.
Trilogy dressage saddles are built in England by experienced craftsmen, featuring a British tree made of laminated beechwood, and specially tanned hide that offers the rider an elastic broken-in feel.
