Polo Gear USA Joins Phelps Media Group As Most Recent Client

Written by: Kendall Bierer
Client: Polo Gear USA
Release Date: 2014-01-22

Wellington, FL – January 22, 2014 – Phelps Media Group Inc., (PMG), a leading public relations firm in the equestrian industry, is pleased to welcome Polo Gear USA to its ever-growing client list. A staple of the Wellington Polo community since 1993, Polo Gear strives to provide top notch technical and apparel products for the equestrian industry, both in the states and abroad. Their passion and dedication to the game of polo shows in their products, which are designed to withstand the rigors of that demanding game. Polo Gear growth includes branding its trademarks worldwide. In recent years their passion has expanded to include dressage, hunters and jumpers; as the horse community has discovered the Polo Gear Teamshop™ can make or embellish all its custom and horse apparel.  

“We are thrilled to have Polo Gear join our Phelps Media Group family,” President and CEO of Phelps Media Group, Inc. Mason Phelps remarked. “It’s so nice to represent a client as dedicated to excellence and innovation as Polo Gear is. It makes our job as public relations people easy.”

Polo Gear is the industry standard when it comes to top of the line equestrian products. After purchasing Verhan Saddlery in May of 2012, Polo Gear has continued on the road to excellence in saddle production and design. Their saddles are made with the finest vintage leather available, laid over trees custom laminated and reinforced with only the finest German Sprenger steel. Polo Gear has employed the same guild-trained master saddlers of England for many years, and built their reputation on their attention to detail and dedication to customer satisfaction. Polo Gear’s mission is to provide a well fitted saddle that allows you to have happier, healthier horses, fewer vet and chiropractic bills, and greatly improved performance. Polo Gear’s patented “free shoulder saddles™” are hailed by experts as the “best-fitting saddle ever made.” 

Always seeking more avenues to best serve clients and their horses’ needs, Polo Gear recently joined with Debbie Witty and Performance Saddlery to enhance their already popular Trilogy saddles. The strength of Performance Saddlery’s unsurpassed expertise has increased even further as they have joined forces with Verhan and Trilogy to create one-of-a-kind performance saddles and a national force of experienced saddle fitters personally trained and mentored by Witty. Witty’s attention perked when the prospect arose to become involved with the Verhan Saddlery and the patented concept of the “Free Shoulder Panel.” Witty became extremely engaged in this new concept for saddle design and was amazed with the proven success Verhan was bringing to the dressage, jumper and polo worlds.

Polo Gear certainly doesn’t stop at just saddles—they are the leading providers of every product players need to walk onto the field, or riders use in the show ring. Their boots are second to none, and they are the footwear to which all others in the industry are compared. Polo Gear has also succeeded in producing a helmet that goes far and beyond USPA safety standards, all the while maintaining a classic and stylish design. This helmet was the product of extensive research efforts by Polo Gear, just another way in which the company goes out of their way to insure customers are buying products rivaled by none.

Polo Gear is also a central component in the development of the Polo West complex one of the last unfinished real estate gems in Wellington. It is moving its operations to the Polo West location and renovating and updating those facilities to include a new home for the Trilogy®, Verhan®, Polo Gear™ and Golf Gear™ brands. Polo Gear will be moving to the building on the corner of South Shore Blvd and Green View Cove and included in this project are the fully lighted equestrian and polo arena and restaurant areas. Polo West also includes three polo fields, a nine hole golf course and clubhouse destined to become America’s first equestrian country club.

Top of the line luxury isn’t the only hat Polo Gear wears: the company also provides a wide array of entry-level products for the aspiring polo enthusiast. While these boots and saddles may not share the price point of their more opulent brothers, Polo Gear’s dedication to quality and attention to detail is never lost in their production.
