Drums, Pa. – April 1, 2016 – Henri de Rivel is proud to partner with the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) as the official saddle sponsor of the IEA and the 2016 IEA National Finals.

As a leading English saddle and tack manufacturer, Henri de Rivel is committed to supporting young riders and the rising stars of the sport while providing them with top-of-the-line tack that allows both horse and rider to perform at their best.

The IEA’s mission of promoting and improving the quality of equestrian competition and instruction available to students aligns perfectly with Henri de Rivel’s own mission, making a partnership between the two an ideal fit for 2016.  

“Since it’s founding, we’ve really seen the IEA do great things for young riders — particularly for those riders who may not have horses of their own or who would otherwise not be able to compete at this level,” said Timmy Sharma, founder and president of Henri de Rivel manufacturer JPC Equestrian, Inc. “We design many of our saddles and products with young riders, like those competing in the IEA, in mind, and it’s become our mission to help support them and to provide them with the highest quality products at a price that is affordable. Becoming a sponsor of the IEA is the perfect opportunity to do that.” 

As gold sponsors of the IEA and of the 2016 IEA National Finals, to be held April 20–24 at the Kentucky Horse Park, Henri de Rivel is awarding the brand’s top-of-the-line saddles to winners of each of the individual hunt seat classes and bridles to winners of each of the team hunt seat classes, as well as presenting saddles to winning riders from throughout each of the IEA Zone Finals.

Additionally, IEA riders will have the opportunity to shop Henri de Rivel at a special discounted rate.

Each piece of Henri de Rivel's collection of saddles and tack is expertly made with meticulous and unmatched attention to detail by a dedicated team of skilled craftsmen, manufactured under the direction and quality standards of a world-renowned master saddler, Juan Carlos Martiarena of Argentina.

Each new model is designed with the finest selection of leathers and tested in the show ring by co-owner Laurie Sharma before being introduced to the market. When it comes to reasonably priced saddles, bridles and accessories, Henri de Rivel continues to be a market leader, offering outstanding value for the price.

Riders around the globe depend on Henri de Rivel to consistently outperform the competition. To learn more about Henri de Rivel and to browse all available products, visit
