Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
ProChaps, a Canadian designer and manufacturer of equestrian riding chaps and half chaps, announces the launch of a unique sponsoring program - The ProChaps Riding Team. This program will sponsor elite riders and the up and coming riders who have made significant contributions in their respected field. The first rider selected for the sponsoring program is coach and Three Star Eventer, Whitney Weston.
The Riding Team features horses and riders who live up to their highest ideals of horsemanship. The prototypical Riding Team members have distinguished themselves by outstanding achievements and their ability to attain higher goals. With this new program, ProChaps wants to inspire the equestrian community and will support other determined individuals like Whitney in the future.
ProChaps has been involved with Whitney Weston for several months and believes in Whitney’s dream. Whitney was one of the first high level riders who expressed trust in ProChaps by wearing the Competition Half Chaps. As Jean Larivée, CEO of ProChaps states: “She represents our values: passion, determination and friendliness. She is not afraid to work hard, stand out and aims for the stars and is the perfect fit for The ProChaps Riding Team.”
Whitney Weston is the definition of grit and determination, for that reason she will be the first rider endorsed by ProChaps. While competing across the United States Whitney lived in a horse trailer for 2 years to save money towards her training. She has competed in 25 states and 4 countries and represented the United States for the Student Riding Nations Cup (SRNC) in Zurich, Switzerland in 2006. In 2013, she won 5th place Intermediate at Rocking Horse Trials, FL and 6th place Advanced Plantation Field Horse Trials, PA. She has since moved to Southern Pines, NC to pursue her goal to represent the United States at international competitions. There, she trains and she gives lessons to aspiring riders. She has trained with Olympians Phillip Dutton, Buck Davidson, and Bruce Davidson.
The ProChaps Team takes pride in playing an active and constructive role in the equestrian community. On top of riding equipment such as chaps and half chaps, the endorsed rider will benefit from the visibility ProChaps will give them and from advice about gaining traction towards success.

ProChaps unparalleled design is meant to meet the needs of any rider, professional or amateur. Their unique concept can fit with elegance and ease any silhouette from XXS to XXL.
