Charles Owen Continues Significant Exposure at Upperville Colt and Horse Show
Charles Owen, Inc. will once again be present at the 2012 Upperville Colt & Horse Show in Upperville, Virginia June 4 – 10. With a strong presence on both the hunter and jumper sides of the show grounds, Charles Owen is fast becoming a staple on site and a true fixture on the list of sponsors.
As in past years, Charles Owen will maintain its signature purple Charles Owen tent on the Hunter side between the two hunter show rings. Competitors and spectators alike will be able to see the latest in design and styles available from the leading manufacturer of approved, protective headwear, including the new SP8 helmet which provides exceptional coverage from the sun. Expert helmet fitting advice will be available throughout the show to ensure the proper fit and highest level of safety within the sport.
On the Jumper side, Charles Owen will be providing hospitality in its “Riders’ Lounge.” Continuing on the tradition of delivering rider comfort, Charles Owen will provide a climate-controlled trailer complete with complimentary drinks and snacks throughout the week. Exhibitors will be able to cool off, relax and watch a few rounds all in the comfort of the Charles Owen Riders’ Lounge.
Finally, Charles Owen is pleased to partner with others in sponsoring the Upperville Hunter Derby on Saturday evening, June 9th. Located in the new arena on the Jumper side, this $20,000 Derby promises to be the highlight of the hunter competition.
Roy Burek, Managing Director of Charles Owen & Co., commented, “We are very pleased to once again have such a prominent role in this historic horse show. The tradition of the Upperville Colt & Horse Show pairs perfectly with the tradition of safety and style found in every Charles Owen helmet.”
