DK Saddlery

I would not think of using another kind of saddle on any of my horses. Danny is a highly trained technician who knows what works so that your horse will always perform at the very highest level. I am proud to recommend his saddles to all of my clients. My horses have responded so well to the careful adjustments for each of them, and I credit Danny with their continuing success in competitions.

Higher Standards Leather Care

Higher Standards Leather Cleaner not only cleans my tack but conditions it better than any other product I have used in the past! On top of that, it has the most wonderful scents. I wouldn’t go back to any other type of saddle soap after using Higher Standards!

Success Equestrian

As an upper level event rider, I sit on top of a horse for more hours during the day than not. It is a struggle to find a saddle pad that stays in place and does not rub my horses back while also being affordable enough that I can use them both at home and at the show. When I came across the Success Equestrian saddle pads, I knew I had found a product that fulfilled all of these requirements. For the first time this winter I made it through without any rubs on my horses backs! And the best part is both the jump and dressage pads are very stylish so I did not have to sacrifice turnout for comfort.

Keep Me Tight

Check out my newest sponsor, Keep Me Tight, the makers of a band that goes around your waist and provides you with abdominal support and core stability.

As equestrians, we spend a lot of our time thinking about our horse’s health and muscle development. It’s harder to remember to do the same thing for ourselves! I use the KeepMeTight Support Band because it keeps my body in the right place while riding so I build my core muscles and protect my back. It’s comfortable, supportive, and easy to take on and off. I highly recommend this band for anyone who needs help sitting up straight on a horse or who struggles with lower back pain.

Lillian is currently seeking sponsors in order to achieve her goal of becoming a member of the United States Equestrian Team. To reach the top of any sport takes a tremendous focus from the rider but it also needs to be a team effort. All riders need partners, equine and human, to get to the top.

There is something special about being a part of an event rider’s team. The beauty and athletic ability of an event horse, the tremendous heart and hunger for a good round of each rider, and the close bond of horse and rider is thrilling to see and it is a privilege to be a part of that partnership. A desire to be associated with this growing sport, and an appreciation of the incredible feats these horses and riders accomplish, prompts businesses and individuals to make sponsorship investments.

The kind of sponsorships varies from full horse ownership, donations of goods and services, to financial contributions that offset competition costs. Lillian would love to have you join her Team so please feel free to contact her directly at 301.938.4840 or lillian@lillianjheard.com
