German equestrian powerhouse Schockemöhle Sports have joined forces with EQUITANA Australia and are proudly supporting the Chris Burton Masterclass at this year’s Melbourne event.
Chris Burton is one of the star presenters and his Eventing Masterclass on Saturday, 17 November will be a highlight of the popular education program. Everyone, who is holding a General Admission ticket for the day is welcome to watch. With a rider of Chris’ calibre and talent, this is an event not to be missed!
Chris has been a member of Team Schockemöhle for over five years. He was first introduced to Managing Director Franz Schockemöhle by two of his Australian customers. Franz quickly found out more about this good-looking Australian rider and was impressed by what he saw. A partnership was born that has seen both parties grow and become strong brands around the world. Who hasn’t seen Chris’ two large orange and grey trucks at eventing competitions around Europe?
Chris is at the top of his game at the moment. Affectionately dubbed the ‘Speed King’ in eventing circles he has just won the Event Rider Master series and the British Open Championship and now has his eyes firmly locked on the 2018 World Equestrian Games in Tryon.
He says, “We are so lucky to be involved with Schockemöhle Sports. They are such an innovative brand, which is always evolving their products to suit the needs of riders and horses. We all love helping turn the world orange!”
Chris Burton however is not the only Australian athlete amongst the Schockemöhle Sports ranks of sponsored riders. The ‘A-Team in Down Under’ also includes elite dressage rider and fellow WEG team mate Brett Parbery, eventing power couple Shane and Mattea Davidson and, most recently, Olympic Silver medalist Megan Jones.
Franz Schockemöhle is looking forward to his partnership with EQUITANA Australia and to supporting the Australian equestrian community. He also reveals, “Most of our A Team members will be at EQUITANA Melbourne for a very special announcement and a very special cause. I can’t tell you more right now, it’s a bit of a secret. You have to join us at Melbourne in November!”
Schockemöhle Sports and their Australian agent Chaballo will have a large ‘orange’ stand in the Epsom Pavilion, where you can not only find their revolutionary anatomic bridles, but also fashion forward riding apparel and the quality Tonics footwear brand.
Keep your eyes peeled for the special grey and orange Signature Collection and the latest seasonal collection with the trendy colours Merlot, Tobacco, Blush Pink and Platinum. There will be some exclusive specials, giveaways and promotions, and of course the big secret will be revealed.
