Welcome Sharn Wordley – International Grand Prix Show Jumper!

Sharn Wordley on Upper Class at Fox Lea

We are thrilled to announce that Sharn Wordley, international Grand Prix show jumper and former Olympian, will be representing Wise Equestrian and the Dutton RZ saddle line. Based out of his farm in Ocala, Florida, Sharn operates a busy training business and is looking forward to an exciting year with his three current Grand Prix mounts.

Originally from New Zealand, Sharn has attended multiple Nations Cup competitions and the 1998 Olympics. Sharn will be acting as our ambassador in the show jumping world, spreading the word about our saddles while competing in them.   We’re very excited about this partnership and know that Sharn will represent us well!  In addition to being a top professional rider, Sharn is also the founding partner of Wordley Martin Equestrian, providers and installers of premium equine surfaces.  For more about Sharn and his business, visit

On another high note, congratulations to Wise rider, owner, and co-designer Ronald Zabala-Goetschel on his recent qualification for the London 2012 Olympics! Ronald secured his spot as the South American representative with his win at the Campo de Mayo FEI event in Argentina earlier this month. It is so exciting to know that there will be at least one rider in London rocking around in the Dutton RZ saddles. And if Phillip keeps on pace with his win two weekends ago at Red Hills, Ronald won’t be the only one! All the best of luck to Ronald in England this summer.

Red Hills 2012

The Wise mobile unit has been continuing its trek around the southeast this month, with a few stops in Aiken for Pine Top and Sporting Days, as well as a really fun and busy weekend in Tallahassee at Red Hills. This picture was taken at Red Hills, where the wonderful organizers let me take some of the saddles up by the cross-country course on Saturday where  I had a great view of the action and many interested spectators who came by and looked at the saddles. It was fantastic!
