Tyler, TX (September 1, 2014) – Equipped with his favorite tack from World Equestrian Brands, Buck Davidson flew over jumps and glided across the dressage arena at the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships in Tyler, Texas. His outstanding performances throughout the intensive competition resulted in the title of 2014 Adequan USEA Gold Cup Champion. World Equestrian Brands, the popular tack distributer that has sponsored Davidson for over 10 years, congratulates him on his latest success.
Davidson jumped double clear over the daunting course in the $40,000 2014 Adequan Advanced USEA Gold Cup Final division of the Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships, presented by VTO Saddlery, on Saturday, September 27. His score of 39.6 earned him first place in the championship’s most prestigious division, which the humble eventing champion credited to his mount Petite Flower (owned by Caroline Martin). “Flower did what she always does and gave me her 110% in show jumping, and I just tried to stay out of her way,” Davidson commented. Davidson’s skill in coaching riders was as apparent as his riding abilities during the Gold Cup Final division— his student Laine Ashker came in second place, scoring better than every other rider except for Davidson himself.
With several wins already under his belt this year, Davidson also gave a stellar performance on the opening day of the competition, September 25. He and Quasar, an Oldenburg owned by Ann Clements, seemed to move on air through their dressage phase of the Merial Open Intermediate division. The pair’s score of 30.4 helped bring them to second place in the division.
Virginia-based tack distributer World Equestrian Brands was cheering Davidson on throughout the weekend, and is thrilled with his final results. “Buck is a longtime supporter of World Equestrian Brands products, and he rides all his horses in our Amerigo, Vespucci, Mattes, and Equilibrium Products.” said Robin Moore, CEO of World Equestrian Brands.
Davidson is proud to ride in equipment made by the four major equitation brands that World Equestrian Brands offers: Amerigo, EA Mattes, Vespucci, and Equilibrium. “Like in every sport, the fine details always make all the difference,” Davidson explained. “I love the way Amerigo saddles fit my horses, and I always feel secure. The Equilibrium Airlite Cross-Country boots are awesome, and my horses benefit in a huge way from their Massage Pad. Hands down, when it comes to meeting the needs of my horses and me— which at this level is very demanding— the World Equestrian Brands products get it done.”
