USRider partners with United States Dressage Federation

USRider, the national provider of roadside emergency assistance for equestrians, is proud to announce a new partnership with the United States Dressage Federation.

The partnership establishes USRider as the official roadside service provider for USDF and is one of the new benefits offered to USDF members through their Member Perks Program.

Based out of Lexington, Kentucky, USDF is a non-profit organization dedicated to dressage, which they define as a method of horse training that develops the horse’s natural athletic ability and willingness to work, making him calm, supple and attentive to his rider. The USDF has a wide reach, with more than 125 affiliate local or regional clubs and more than 30 different educational programs.

USDF Executive Director Stephan Hienzsch said USRider’s excellent service makes it a perfect fit for the organization’s members.

“USDF is very pleased that USRider will be making available its roadside assistance product to USDF members as a USDF Member Perks Program Partner,” Hienzsch said. “USRider offers a quality product and service that supports our members’ equine interests, making USRider a perfect addition as a USDF partner.”

USRider General Manager Bill Riss said the company is proud to have this association.
“USDF is one of the most respected organizations within the equine industry, and we are excited to be working with them,” Riss said. “USDF is dedicated to education and the promotion of dressage, and we are honored to provide their members the ability to be safe on the road through USRider membership.”
