Lauren Knopp and Dressage Sport Boots:
A Match for Performance
Wellington, FL (January 15, 2016) – Dressage Sport Boots (DSB) is a company dedicated to enhancing performances across the United States and Europe, and has protected horse’s legs in arenas across the U.S. to the training barns of top riders in Germany and Holland. Now, Dressage Sport Boots is bolstering its list of sponsored riders with the addition of USDF Gold Medalist Lauren Knopp.
Knopp operates her riding and training business, Lauren Knopp Dressage, out of her family owned facility, the popular equestrian haven IDA Farm in Wellington, Florida. She has taken many titles in the dressage arena, including National Junior Champion at Gladstone, New Jersey; Team and Individual Silver Medalist at the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC); and, in 2013, she placed third in the Brentina Cup at the U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions.
Knopp knows that protecting her horses during training is of utmost importance in order to achieve the highest successes, which is why she chooses to outfit her horses in the superior protection of DSBs. “Before I found Dressage Sport Boots, I never completely trusted other boots to fully protect and comfort my horse’s legs while riding and in turnout,” Knopp reflects. “Now, I am so grateful to have found and be partnered with DSBs because have so much confidence and trust in the product.”
“I always use my DSBs because they are very protective for my horses’ legs, while also being fashionable and eye catching,” Knopp explains. “The DSBs are really comfortable for my horses and are very easy to use, take off, and wash.”
Knopp currently rides her two horses— Samoa 52, a five-year-old Oldenburg gelding, and De Gregory a nine-year-old Oldenburg gelding— in DSBs. Whenever she rides any horse she has in training or in her sales program, she makes sure that their limbs are protected with DSBs.
Designed with the fashion of dressage and necessity for protection in mind, Dressage Sport Boots are the least-hassle equestrian boots for busy equestrians like Knopp. With multiple horses to ride per day, the need for constant wrapping becomes a thing of the past with Dressage Sport Boots. Easily applied and cleaned, Dressage Sport Boots (DSBs) also look great when schooling either at home or at a show. They feature a rugged vinyl exterior with a Coverlight™ strike area, which is tear, puncture, and abrasion resistant. For wet conditions or turnout, the All Sport Boot model is available, which features lined neoprene in place of the fleece. DSB has also recently introduced a new line of colors in that include black, white, silver, patent, pink, navy, and brown.
Knopp relies only on products that set the standard for performance and durability in the industry. The DSBs are a well-rounded option for horses and riders looking for all weather, supportive boots while not sacrificing style. They are highly resistant to fungicidal growth, making them an exceptional choice to withstand the rigors of the equestrian environment. These boots make life easier for the rider because of their easy Velcro strap application system and simple care, being machine washable.
