Sponsorship Announcement – Darcas Lever

We are absolutely thrilled to announce our new partnership with international dressage rider and trainer, Darcas Lever.

 

Darcas is based at Crow Wood Equestrian (the home of Saddles Direct), where she trains and competes her horses. She is a well-established, experienced dressage rider having previously competed for GB on the Junior and Young Rider teams – she was also shortlisted for the European young rider teams on her previous horse “Jellybean B”. Darcas has a series of competition horses- all riding at different levels. She is very much focusing on training this year, with the aim of taking each horse up a level for next season. We are very excited to see the results of her hard work in the coming months.

Saddlery Brands International approached us in the summer, looking for us to partner with them on the launch of the new Bates Artiste dressage saddle. They asked us to find a rider to “test ride” the Artiste for some real rider feedback – and Darcas was our obvious choice!

Our fitter Sarah fitted the Artiste to her gorgeous horse “Gustav IV” or “Gus” as his friends like to call him. The saddle fitted perfectly, giving Darcas a much closer contact than she had experienced before. Gus went like a dream – and the partnership between Saddles Direct, Bates Saddles and Darcas Lever was formed.

 

As well as training her horses, Darcas hosts clinics twice a month at Crow Wood Equestrian Centre, writes for BD judges and works hard with the team at Crow Wood putting on other shows and events.

We are over the moon to be supporting Darcas alongside Bates Saddles- we couldn’t think of a better combination!

Keep your eye out for Darcas and her new Artiste saddle at BD competitions in the coming months!
