CWD Sellier Signs Three-Year Sponsorship With Gulf Coast Winter Classics

Written by: Emily Riden
Client: Gulf Coast Winter Classics
Release Date: 2014-02-21

Gulfport, MS – February 21, 2014 – The innovative and world-class CWD Sellier saddles are the choice of countless riders at the Gulf Coast Winter Classics, and now the saddle has signed on as the official saddler of the Gulf Coast Classic Company through 2016.

CWD is the title sponsor of the $50,000 CWD Grand Prix to be held this Sunday, February 23, 2014 at the Harrison County Fairgrounds & Equestrian Center. CWD representatives will be on-site this Sunday and at all Gulf Classic Company horse shows to assist riders in evaluating their saddle’s fit and finding the best products available to fit their riding goals.

As the leader in innovation, CWD Sellier saddle designers blend technology with craftsmanship to produce the best saddles in the market. CWD's new 2Gs saddle incorporates technology drawn from the ski and top-end bicycle industries and delivers that same high level of performance in a saddle.  The 2Gs saddle allows for total freedom for the horse, and it protects both the horse's muscles and skeleton. 

CWD also leads the saddle industry in quality service. CWD's highly trained representatives, two service workshops located in California and New York, and two offices, one on each coast, work to serve the United States' equestrian market.  

Many of the CWD sponsored riders at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Winter Classic in Gulfport, such as Devin Ryan, Matt Cyphert, Brian Locke, Daniel Bedoya, Trapp O' Neal, Holly Shepherd, Dani Grice and Scott Lenkart will be showing this week and showcasing why winning riders choose CWD.

CWD Representative Robin Walker Tucker will be at the Gulf Coast Classic Shows in Gulfport, MI, and she invites riders to a free test ride in any of the beautiful CWD saddles. Should anyone need assistance with a current saddle, Tucker is available at 214.557.6266 or by email at

"CWD represents quality – quality service and top quality tack.  We're very excited about partnering with them over the next three years," said Bob Bell, President of the Gulf Coast Classic Company and the Classic Company. "Their line of tack is considered to be the best, and their attention to customer service is excellent. We're excited that they will be on-site at all of our shows and supplying their line of equipment to our exhibitors.”
