St. Charles, Missouri (October 1, 2012) – Nine-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Champion, Chester Weber, has chalked up more wins to his successful driving career. Most recently, Weber took the 2012 FEI Four-in-Hand Driving World Championships by storm, driving away with the Individual Silver while he and his US teammates, Jimmy Fairclough and Joe Yoder, captured the Bronze Team Medal.
“Our horses are able to compete at the top of their game with the aid of the ASSURE® line of products from Arenus,” states Weber about his recent success. All the horses on Weber’s team are on ASSURE® products and are seeing great results on and off the competition field. During the World Championships, Weber went into the cones, the final phase of the competition, standing in second place. A nearly flawless cones test helped him secure the Individual Silver. During the cones, Weber drove his own Horus du Bois and Para along with Jane Clark’s Splash and Uniek.
Before the Championships, Weber spent the summer competing in Europe with his team, turning in one successful dressage test after another. “With the thousands of miles they travel and within this strenuous sport, proper nutrition is a must to stay at the top of our game,” Weber explains. “When traveling, it is important to keep our team in their feed tubs, and with the addition of the ASSURE line, they rarely miss a meal,” he adds. “We weigh horses two times per month and I am always astonished when after a long trip even the ones who struggle with the stress of travel often maintain or gain weight.”
Weber said he and Clark are now working on plans to compete at the World Equestrian Games in 2014 in Normandy. “We will likely show in Kentucky this fall also,” he said. “We will be bringing Ringo and Boris along with that in mind.”
As one of America’s most driven and decorated competitors, Weber entered unchartered territory earlier this year when he won the USEF Four-In-Hand Championship for a record ninth time. The combined forces of Team Weber and Team Clark has also proven to be a brilliant move and a positive step for American four-in-hand combined driving.
