Pessoa Named 2013 Florida Gold Coast Quarter Horse Show Sponsor

Tampa, FL – December 21, 2013 – Pessoa and the Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit have something vital in common – they both strive to continually provide the best product and experiences for riders. With this unifying commitment to excellence in mind, Pessoa has partnered with the Gold Coast Quarter Horse Circuit as a sponsor of this year’s event, to be held Dec. 27 – 31, 2013 at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center located within the Florida State Fairgrounds.

“When the opportunity to become a sponsor was presented to us, we jumped on it immediately,” said Peggy Murray, the Pessoa Brand Manager for English Riding Supply. “We’re very excited about it, because we know anything involving Stadium Jumping management is always going to be a good event.”

Founded by renowned riders and competitors, Nelson and Rodrigo Pessoa, Pessoa is a leader in the saddlery market and is ever evolving to expand its line and to continue to offer the highest quality products.

“Pessoa is an internationally known brand. It’s a saddle that’s been around for over thirty years. Through the years there have been constant improvements and expansion of the line,” Murray said. “We’re very excited to be involved in the Quarter Horse market.”

Murray continued, “Thanks to the many different aspects to the fit of the Pessoa saddles, we have models that are basically semi-custom. Because of the numerous available models and fits that you can have for you or your horse, we’re a perfect match for any hunter market, including the Quarter Horse market.”

Pessoa saddles are distributed within North America by English Riding Supply, the supplier of some of the world’s best brands within the equestrian industry. In addition to Pessoa, English Riding Supply distributes such brands as Mountain Horse and Veredus and the company’s own brands Ovation and Romfh.
