'Tis the season!

The Equestrian Awards season is upon us. Whether you are looking for awards to commemorate grass roots events, one to celebrate a Grand Championship win, or one to acknowledge a year end final, we have the perfect selection which is sure to make your event one to remember.

With so many awards to choose from, it can be difficult to decide on the perfect one for your event. We have put together some suggestions to keep in mind when making your selection.
Awards and prizes should be considered as two different things. Although it can sometimes be challenging to differentiate between the two. An award is bestowed as a recognition of extraordinary achievement and is usually a type of commemorative gift, while a prize does also commemorate an achievement, it's usually something practical that the winner can use. There is no doubt that these are different from one another, but it can often be confusing which one to select and use.
Awards can be very daunting to choose from, but with a little help from Ride Every Stride Inc., it's easy to pick the perfect one for your event. Here are some of our most popular awards and some prizes that could go with them!

Equestrian award blankets are a great way to complete the look of your competition awards. Customize the blankets in your show colors and add embroidery for a personal touch.

As the younger stepsister of the equestrian award blanket, coolerettes are often overlooked as a significant prize option, but they can be a great alternative as a budget friendly prize. These coolerettes are a perfect stand in for full sized coolers, creating an elegant, streamlined effect on cooler racks and in show stall displays. They are 100% travel friendly and perfect for any event to show off their wow factor.

Bags, belts, and apparel:

Bags, belts, and other apparel are often used at equestrian competitions and make excellent prizes. They are all items that can be used by the recipient, not to mention the travelling billboard opportunity that they provide. They are all a great way to show your appreciation for the hard work and dedication of the participants and each can be customized with your event logo or message. Choose from a variety of styles and colors to create the perfect prize pairing for your event.
