Dressage champion Jan Ebeling Joins Team Ice Horse FamilySonoma, CA (October 22, 2014) – Dressage icon Jan Ebeling has joined forces with Ice Horse, becoming the newest member of the Ice Horse family. Jan joins the list of 20+ other Olympians and professional equestrians in the Team Ice Horsestable that are currently using the patented cold therapy products to give their horses the winning edge. A member of the 2012 Olympic Team, Ebeling spent most of his childhood in Oldenburg, Germany, not far from where his Olympic partner Rafalca was born. He took riding lessons as a child, and worked feeding and grooming horses, and maneuvering the horse manure cart so he could pay for the lessons. Working his way up as an apprentice for the late German master Herbert Rehbein, Ebeling now oversees 30 to 40 horses at the Acres, a ranch in Moorpark, Calif.A US Citizen since 1998, Jan represented the US on the 2003 gold medal Pan American team in Santo Domingo, aboard Feleciano, and aboard Rafalca competed in the World Cup in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2012. In 2011, Jan and Rafalca were the highest ranked USA combination at the World Cup in Leipzig, Germany and members of the USA team in Aachen culminating their partnership with a spot on the 2012 Olympic team.“Not only is Jan Ebeling one of the horse world’s best athletes, but he exemplifies a superb level of horsemanship both in and out of the ring,” said Julie Garella, and CEO of Ice Horse. “Jan demonstrates an exceptional level of training and care for the horse, and we are thrilled to be part of his horse care program. Busy professionals like Jan can really benefit from the convenience and time savings that Ice Horse products provide.”In addition to Jan's heavy competition and training schedule, Jan is a USDF Young Rider Clinician, is also a member of the High Performance Dressage Eligible Athlete Committee, and conducts clinics nationally and internationally, as well as having a full training and sales business in Moorpark, CA. As his family is an important part of his life, he enjoys spending time hiking, biking, snorkeling, and traveling with his wife, Amy and son, Ben.
Simply put, Chester Weber's 2014 has been nothing short of spectacular. He currently holds the top ranking in the world on the FEI Top Driver Award Standings for Four-in-Hand. He and his team continue to be the leading Four-in-Hand team in the world, which was cemented by his silver medal at the WEG The FEI Four-in-Hand rankings are determined by a combination of success throughout the year, and Chester's 2014 resume has very few holes. Chester has been seemingly unstoppable, taking the FEI ranking with a host of wins including being the first American to win the Four–in-Hand at CAIO4* Aachen, winning at CAI3* Windsor, defending his 11th USEF National Four-in-Hand Driving Championship and setting an impressive record dressage score (30.89) at the Kingdom of the Sun CDE. Chester has no doubt impressed the equestrian world this year, and we look forward to seeing what else he has in store.
Yesterday, Ice Horse sponsored rider Buck Davidson and Ballynoe Castle RM took a lead score of 47.7 at the Plantation Field Horse Trials. They jumped one of 14 double clear rounds in the CIC3* show jumping competition. “He felt awesome,” Davidson said. “I’m not sure there’s anyone who jumped better today. It felt like he was up as high as the standards from fence one.” Davidson has said they have aerated the footing for today’s cross country event, to account for the especially dry conditions. “There’s such good, old turf here and such good grass cover, and it’s not used for anything else,” Davidson said. “When I galloped today, you couldn’t hear it. The ground is beautiful, and it’s not that long of a course.” We wish Buck the best of luck and will keep you updated on the results.
This week marks the start of the High Roller Reining Classic at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. If you’re a reining fan and you haven’t been to South Point; put it on your bucket list. This hotel boasts five restaurants, a 64 lane bowling alley, full service spa under the same roof as three show pens and air conditioned fly free stabling for 1200 horses! What more does one need! HRRC has a totally different feel than most competitions. This week will feature both Quarter Horse and Arabians and there will also be a Stallion Service auction. The environment is competitive but what makes the event so special is that everyone works and plays together. They stay up until the wee hours of the morning working in the arena on their slides, spins and roll backs, and you’ll find them the next day together in the stands. Ice Horse riders Matt Mills and Tom McCuthceon are participating in the Open Derby – Good luck to you both.
Alas, the 2014 FEI World Equestrian Games are over. The last day featured the FEI World Team and Individual for Four-in-Hands Driving Championship, boasting big names including our very own Chester Weber. Chester put in a phenomenal performance, clinching the Individual Silver Medal! A native of Ocala, Florida, Chester put in a great cones round with his team of KWPN geldings. This silver medal performance is his third individual silver at an FEI World Championship. "I was really pleased; I couldn't ask for more," Chester said. "I was able to put the pressure on on the last day, and that is what sport is all about. I couldn't be more pleased with my horses, and my entire team. The suppliers, sponsors, everyone did a fantastic job, and I am just proud to be a part of it." Though a gold medal was in his grasp, Chester understood the full scope of his accomplishment, adding "Some people call that the bridesmaid's award, but I am really pleased with it. I am so pleased with the horses, and I wouldn't trade them for any other group of horses here. I honestly think I have one of the best cones teams in the world. I will see you again in two years." We are so proud of Chester and our Ice Horse sponsored riders! We had so much fun at the World Equestrian Games and look forward to the rest of 2014!
The final week of the World Equestrian Games has been an exciting one. We are even more excited for the World Driving Championships, featuring U.S. Driver and Ice Horse sponsored rider, Chester Weber. In 2010, the U.S teams clinched silver, but they have their sights on gold. The Individual portion for the Four-in-Hands Driving Championship concludes on Friday and the U.S. will be represented by Chester Weber at 2:50pm local time. Combined Driving is much different than carriage pleasure driving. While pleasure driving emphasizes style, combined driving test both the horse and team's speed, agility, endurance, and skill. These events can be held over the course of three days. It truly does challenge a rider's full set of skills. However, if anybody is up to the challenge, it's Chester Weber. Weber entered these Games having a career year. In March, he won his 11th National title. He then traveled across the sea to Europe, where he earned wins at CAI3* Windsor and CAIO4* Saumur. Next he traveled to Germany, earning the biggest victory of his career, in the prestigious CAIO4* competition. However, while his resume boasts some of the top titles in the equestrian world, he has not been able to call himself World Champion. He looks to change that this week. We wish him the very best. Good luck, Chester!
