Wellington, FL – March 10, 2014 – The Wellington Turf Tour has taken the winter equestrian circuit by storm in 2014. PoloGear™, a staple in the Wellington community since 1993, is proud to sponsor the 11-week series filled with top-tier competition, riders and horses. Through their sponsorship of the Wellington Turf Tour, PoloGear™ is pleased to announce their role as The Ridge at Wellington’s official supplier. PoloGear™ provides top notch technical and apparel products for the equestrian industry, both in the states and worldwide. Their passion and dedication to the sport is evident in their products, and in recent years their passion has expanded beyond polo to include dressage, as well as hunters and jumpers.

As the official supplier of the Wellington Turf Tour, PoloGear™ has tapped even further into the sport of show jumping, utilizing the PoloGear Teamshop™ to not only embellish custom rider and horse apparel but create and brand the individuality of the client. Each winner of the $15,000 1.40m Grand Prix for Week 8 -11 of the Wellington Turf Tour will receive an exclusive Ridge at Wellington saddle pad, and the victor of the $24,995 Grand Prix Finale will take home a PoloGear™ Branding Package including the saddle pad, a hat, one-of-a-kind polo shirt and a championship 2014 The Ridge at Wellington Turf Tour jacket to commemorate the series.

The PoloGear™ polo shirts have been the talk of the series with a stunning design made exclusively for The Ridge at Wellington. The entire staff of the Wellington Turf Tour wears the navy and white polo shirts each Wednesday and Friday for their highlight events, and the outstanding design has brought a new level of class to the already spectacular series. To order The Ridge at Wellington Turf Tour PoloGear™ shirt please e-mail

“We are thrilled to partner with PoloGear™ as our official supplier for the 2014 Wellington Turf Tour,” co-founder of the series, Olympian Nona Garson explained. “They are the best the industry can offer for custom apparel, embroidery and equipment. Their support of our series shows their dedication to the betterment of the sport, which is what we are all about. We could not be happier or more gracious for their sponsorship of the Grand Prix prizes, and their undeniable passion and commitment to the equestrian community.”

PoloGear™ is the industry standard when it comes to top of the line equestrian products. After purchasing Verhan Saddlery in May of 2012, PoloGear™ 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. PoloGear™ 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. PoloGear’s mission is to provide a well-fitted saddle that allows each rider to have happier, healthier horses, as well as fewer vet and chiropractic bills, and greatly improved performance. PoloGear’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, PoloGear™ recently joined with Debbie Witty and the world-renowned Performance Saddlery. The new division of Performance Saddlery, Inc. at PoloGear™ has unsurpassed expertise, offering not only unrivaled performance saddles, but also a national and international force of experienced saddle fitters personally trained and mentored by Witty through her acclaimed Trilogy saddles. PoloGear™ will have representatives from their Performance Saddlery division on-site at the $24,995 Grand Prix Finale at Deeridge Farms on March 22, 2014 for free consultations and the chance to experience their unrivaled performance saddles.

“The Ridge is doing something really positive for jumping. It allows the horses and competitors at WEF an alternative to their competitive schedule, to relax, to chill out, and to enjoy the sport. Sometimes that is good for the horse, the rider and the soul. We love what Nona and George are doing and are honored to be a part of it,” Fellers commented. “It is what makes Wellington so great, it’s a well-rounded experience to train and compete.” 

Witty continued, “The Ridge offers us the perfect venue to really work with the riders. We are working to refine the fitting concepts we have learned in dressage for jumping. Todd Minikus has been phenomenal for this. We are looking to connect with other top riders at the Ridge as well.”

Equestrians with horse or rider saddle issues are encouraged to call Performance Saddlery at 800-258-0006 or e-mail them at for a consultation. For more information on Polo Gear USA and to order products, visit Visit Trilogy saddles by clicking here.
