“The Easy Glide” - A New
State-Of-The-Art Horse Jump
Sandy, UT (August 24, 2011)– Premier Equestrian, one of the largest suppliers of dressage arenas, horse jumps, arena footing and stable accessories, is pleased to introduce a revolutionary new product called The Easy Glide Jump Cavaletti. Designed for lounging, cavaletti work or jumping, the Easy Glide is easy to set up and allows the lounge line to glide over the obstacle without catching on the jump or snatching the horse in the mouth.
“The Easy Glide is a whole new concept in a cavaletti,” said Heidi Zorn, President of Premier Equestrian. “Our goal at Premier Equestrian is to provide the smartest and best products on the market and we have certainly reached our goal with The Easy Glide Jump Cavaletti. When you are lounging a horse over a jump you don’t want tension on the rope and if you have to flip the rope over the jump so it doesn’t catch, this interferes with the horse’s movement and can actually punish the horse for doing his job. With The Easy Glide, no matter what type of rope or lounge line you are using, it will glide right over the cavaletti.”
The Easy Glide is great for using as a jump or for cavaletti work when riding as well. Molded in cups allow for easy set up and can be stacked with many poles to create a larger vertical or oxer type jump.
Available only through Premier Equestrian, the Easy Glide can be rotated on the ground, which gives many different height options including 8”, 15”, 19”, 22” and 30”. “Because the cups are molded on the sides, the jump cavaletti can also be jumped from either direction, which is a fantastic option when placing jumps or cavaletti in a ring,” Zorn said.
Riders of all disciplines use cavaletti, whether teaching a rider timing and balance or working on a horse’s balance and rhythm. “Cavaletti are an extremely useful part of a training system and the great thing about The Easy Glide is that it is extremely portable and you can move them easily around your arena,” Zorn said. “If you are using them outdoors in windy conditions, you can also fill them with sand and that weighs them down and stabilizes them.” The introductory price for the Easy Glide Jump Cavaletti is $199 per pair with Free Shipping in contiguous US; more information can be found at: http//www.dressagearena.net/pages/stackers.html.
In addition to offering their innovative Easy Glide jump cavaletti, Premier Equestrian offers a complete line of dressage arenas, dressage arena letters, horse jumps and horse jumping equipment, including jump standards, gates, walls, jump cups, horse jump poles and custom sponsor jumps. Premier also offers YouTube videos, designed for riders at all levels, which provide knowledge relevant to the equestrian world. The complete video library includes cavaletti training with Walter Zettl, jumping exercises with David O’Connor and Dressage tips with Sally O’Connor.
“Premier Equestrian really strives to educate the horse owner. So while we may have developed a great new cavaletti, we also want to teach people how to ride jumps and cavaletti so we offer that service on our Premier Equestrian YouTube channel,” Zorn said, adding that Premier’s YouTube channel is http://www.youtube.com/user/premierequestrian1.
Premier’s products have been embraced by the equestrian community and last year the company supplied the dressage arenas for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, as well as the dressage warm-up arena, driving arena, driving warm-up arena and the flower boxes and dressage letters. “Premier also supplied GGT Footing for the dressage arenas at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center during the World Dressage Masters,” Zorn said. “Proper horse arena footing is a big issue and Premier has the answers to the most often asked questions when it comes to arena footing.”
