Wellington, FL – June 3, 2014 – Phelps Media Group Inc. (PMG), the leading public relations firm in the equestrian industry, is pleased to welcome WestWind Surfaces to its ever-growing client list. When it comes to footing, Dan Carr’s WestWind Surfaces puts the welfare of the horse first, standing out as the premier custom footing company with its dedication to quality and safety. WestWind Surfaces specializes in custom footing for all equestrian disciplines worldwide and has become a staple across the globe as the leader in custom footing.

Dan Carr was raised in horse country outside of Cleveland, Ohio, and his passion for horses was ignited by his time spent at the Thistledown Racetrack alongside his grandfather. Carr learned the ropes throughout the years of the equestrian industry, but progressed on to managing multiple country clubs across the East Coast of the United States.

 “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to reach out to an even larger market, and after 20 years of experience, there is no doubt that my quality custom product stands out,” Carr described. “We take the time to understand every aspect of the project, and it is able to be completed in a timely manner with a truly custom blend that will address the barn or horse show needs.”

Carr has been chosen to create footing material for some of the most instrumental organizations and top equestrians in the industry, including Ben Maher, Jane Forbes Clark, Margaret Duprey, Christine and John McCrea, Sean Crooks and Norman Dello Joio, United States Equestrian Team Foundation and Savannah College of Art and Design, just to name a few.

WestWind Surfaces addresses each unique variable to design and create the custom footing that is both safe and paramount to the success of the horse and rider. The process begins with an in-depth consultation that addresses the horses, purpose of the footing, maintenance, weather, location and budget. WestWind Surfaces breaks away from the “cookie-cutter” arena design, creating the best footing to assist the horse and rider in being both safe and successful.

Carr has built WestWind Surfaces into the well-respected company it is today by developing a solid reputation among the equestrian community. Whether it is replacing footing in an existing arena or designing a new facility, WestWind Surfaces does it all. Carr personally installs each project with his team of experts.

“We are thrilled to have Dan Carr and WestWind Surfaces join our Phelps Media Group family,” PMG President Mason Phelps remarked. “Dan understands the horses, and his knowledge and passion is inherent in every project he undertakes. It is a pleasure to represent a client as dedicated to excellence, innovation and horsemanship as WestWind Surfaces.”
