A family affair for Amerigo saddles

Redditch Editorial 5th Feb, 2015 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

THE TEAM behind Amerigo – the Italian saddle brand – are delighted to announce a partnership with leading international dressage stars and siblings Michael and Maria Eilberg.

The sponsorship agreement will see Michael and his sister Maria’s horses kitted out in Amerigo saddles together with Vespucci bridles and accessories – part of the Amerigo range.

Based in Beoley, under the mentorship of their father and trainer Ferdi, Michael and Maria have a yard of 13 horses which include the hugely talented Woodlander Farouche, Half Moon Delphi and Royal Concert.

“Michael and I are very excited about our new partnership with Amerigo saddles and are very much looking forward to what promises to be an exciting year ahead,” said Maria.

“We are delighted to welcome Michael and Maria as Amerigo ambassadors,” added Simon Middleton, managing director at Zebra Products Ltd, the exclusive UK distributor of Amerigo.

“It’s an exciting time for dressage in the UK. Not only are we proving how competitive we are right now as a nation, but there’s also some incredibly exciting talented combinations – like Woodlander Farouche – in the pipeline too.

“This collaboration will see us working closely with the Eilbergs both now and long into the future.”
