July 1, 2014, Portland, Oregon, USA — FITS, inventor of the most athletically advanced riding breech on the market, is proud to announce that five of FITS team of elite riders have been selected to represent the United States and Canada in the upcoming 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.
Horse and rider combinations were selected based on a few criteria. These included their previous international experience, the horse and rider’s drive to win, and performance in the 2013/2014 competition season, with emphasis placed on dressage scores and cross country scores, among others.
Representing Canada at the World Equestrian Games are FITS riders: Hawley Bennett-Awad from Langley, British Columbia, with her mount Gin & Juice, a 2000 American Thoroughbred. She is joined by Selena O’Hanlon, from Kingston, Ontario and her 2003 Canadian Sport Horse gelding Foxwood High.

Eventer Kim Severson, from Charlottesville, Virginia will take along her horse Fernhill Fearless, a 2000 Irish Sport Horse gelding. FITS endurance rider Meg Sleeper, from Frenchtown, New Jersey, along with her 14-year-old Arabian Mare Syrocco Reveille will represent the USA Endurance team.
Confirming the reputation for excellence and comfort that FITS has built over the years, the entire team USA Endurance at this year’s Alltech World Equestrian Games will be wearing Treads AS Lite breeches.
