From Endurance to Dressage
SmartPak just sent me this email ...
I've had my USEF membership for three or four years now, but this is the first time SmartPak has shared how much I saved because of it. I have to say, this email has given me an incentive to do even more of my shopping with them.
My USEF membership is $55.00 annually. I wish I needed something really big, like a saddle. A purchase like that would pay for the membership. In case you didn't know, USEF members save an additional 5% off purchases at SmartPak. Saving $20 by shopping at a store that I already like with a membership that I have to have is a pretty sweet deal.
Good work on the email, SmartPak!
About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
About Speedy G
Speedy went from endurance horse to dressage horse. After helping me earn a USDF Bronze medal in the summer of 2020, he is now semi-retired. Speedy is a 2004, 15'1 hand, purebred Arabian gelding. His Arabian Horse Registry name is G Ima Starr FA.
Izzy was started as a four-year old and then spent the next 18 months in pasture growing up. I bought him as a six-year old, and together, we are showing at the lower levels. He is a 2008, 16'3 hand warmblood gelding. His Rheinland Pfalz-saar International (RPSI) name is Imperioso.
