ARC DE TRIOMPHE TAKES SADDLE FITTING ON THE ROAD

In 2011, Arc de Triomphe (ADT) will be traveling the country providing saddle fitting services wherever they go.

“We’ve already had two trips to Florida this year,” explained Rebecca Bisilliat, co-owner of Arc de Triomphe. “We are driving our rig which has our complete line of saddles in it, so we can stop along our route and provide saddle fitting services to anyone who is interested. So far, people have been very enthusiastic!”

The recent 3-week trip from Pennsylvania to Florida and back, resulted in numerous saddle fittings along the way, and a saddle fitting clinic held in Georgia. “Everywhere we go people are excited to see our beautiful saddles. These riders love our bridles and want to get to know our saddles, and how our saddles can make them better riders,” said Jean-Pierre Bisilliat, co-owner of Arc de Triomphe. “The feedback we get from them tells us that this is a service consumers want. They want to learn how to properly fit a saddle, and find out if their current saddle is fitting correctly.”

“We’ve really enjoyed meeting riders and their horses,” enthused Rebecca. “We’ve made many new friends, and we post about our fittings on our Facebook page.”

The schedule for upcoming saddle fitting trips is:
            April - June  |  Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland
            July  |  Pennsylvania to Montreal, QC Canada (route: PA, NJ, NY, CT, MA, VT, Montreal)
