The Paddock Saddlery announced a new program that will give a 10% discount to all USDF certified instructors and trainers on most products in their Chagrin Falls Ohio store, in their mobile stores at competitions and on their web site!  The concept came from the Instructor-Trainer Council Chair, Lendon Gray, who is tireless in her efforts to enhance the certification program and seek additional benefits for its graduates.

The Paddock's President, Lisa Gorretta, stated "We are thrilled to enter this new partnership with USDF that will enable us to reward those Instructors and Trainers who have demonstrated a dedication both to their craft and to their continuing education, through the USDF Certification program. Eligible professionals will be able to register at The Paddock Saddlery via email to receive an automatic deduction from their transactions.  Our intention is to have an ongoing dialogue with these Professionals, which will also be to our benefit, as we strive to maintain our place in the industry as The Smart Choice for the right product selection, knowledgeable advice and value for your shopping dollar.

The Paddock Saddlery located in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, has been an industry mainstay since its founding in 1986.  In 2007 its influence expanded with the acquisition of A'Dashi Equestrian Boutique.  Both companies have been active supporters of USDF and the sport for many years.  The Paddock Saddlery is the presenting sponsor for all USDF Volunteer of the Year Awards.  For additional information contact The Paddock Saddlery at 800-253-7970 or visit their web site
