Tampa, FL - February 14, 2012 – The 2012 Tampa Equestrian Series is pleased to announce that it has named CWD the official saddle for the two-week horse show, as well as the 40th Annual $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational presented by G & C Farm. CWD Sellier has also stepped up to sponsor the $10,000 CWD American Invitational Stake Class, held on Thursday, April 5, 2012. The Tampa Equestrian Series will be held from March 28 - April 7, 2012, at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, FL.

CWD is the top saddle manufacturer in France and many European countries. Their French custom saddles focus on technological improvements, and CWD is quickly becoming the choice of many of the World's best riders! They continue to grow in the United States thanks to an outstanding product, amazing customer service and priceless support from happy riders.

The most recent addition to the CWD collection is the revolutionary 2G. As the first sports saddle to be made of composite materials, the 2G makes use of the exclusive Dualtree. The dynamic carbon saddle tree adapts itself perfectly to the horse's back when working and in movement. The composite fibers ensure the utmost precision in transmitting information: henceforth, improving the reactivity of the saddle itself. These fibers are extraordinarily flexible and adapt themselves perfectly to the constraints of the saddle under extreme conditions.

“The CWD 2G is the perfect saddle for world-class show jumping riders, so we are pleased to sponsor an event that can bring the two together,” explained Bertrand Pelletier for CWD. “The Tampa Equestrian Series and the American Invitational always feature the best riders in the world, and the 2G saddle has been designed for that market, so we are pleased to help support the incredible level of sport at this event.”

The Tampa Equestrian Series will kick-off its two weeks of competition with the Tampa Bay Classic CSI-W, which is scheduled for March 28-April 1, 2012. It will be followed by the Tournament of Champions CSI, which will be held April 3-7, 2012, and feature the $10,000 CWD American Invitational Stake Class.

The 40th Annual $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational, presented by G&C Farm, will be the highlight event on the final day of competition, April 7, at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The world's top horses and riders will gather to compete under the lights during one of the premier show jumping events in the United States.
