KASK and Parlanti USA have recently dedicated their North and South American presence to engaging a talented and dynamic group of sponsored riders and rider ambassadors. Throughout the winter show season, hunter and jumper riders from coast to coast have signed on as sponsored riders and brand ambassadors for both KASK and Parlanti USA.

Most recently, Colombia's Roberto Teran joined the sponsored rider rosters of both KASK Helmets and Parlanti USA. Teran was a team and individual gold medalist at the 2014 Central American & Caribbean Games in 2014 and represented Colombia in the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in France. In 2015, he participated in the Pan American Games in Toronto. The international jumper rider has been a consistent Parlanti supporter and just clipped on his first KASK this season after the brand made a breakout entrée into equestrian sport less than a year ago.

When asked about his dedication to KASK and Parlanti, Teran responded, “I have been wearing Parlanti boots for several years now and just made the transition to KASK this year. Both products are very comfortable, top quality, and they look great. They are the best out there.”

Teran continued to speak specifically about his new KASK helmet saying, “Safety is a priority for me, and I feel safer in KASK than any other helmet on the market.”

On the heels of his new sponsor partnerships, Teran scored one the best finishes of his career with a win in the Great American $1 Million Grand Prix at HITS Horse Shows in Ocala, FL, on Sunday, March 27, aboard long-time mount, Woklahoma.

“She has been so consistent this season,” said Teran of the 13-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare. “She makes me feel like I am riding one of the best horses out there, and the results speak for themselves.”

Fellow jumper rider, 29-year-old Christopher Ewanouski, competes at the international level at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL. As a junior rider, Ewanouski made headlines with wins in both the Horsemanship Class and the Hunt Seat Medal Finals at the 2005 New England Equitation Championship in his home state of Massachusetts.

In addition to relationships with Teran and Ewanouski, KASK and Parlanti have made an effort to make a name for themselves among the future stars of show jumping through a presence at the Linden Hall School in Lititz, PA. Two of the newest sponsored riders include Director of Equestrian Education, Gillian Beale King, and Assistant Director of Equestrian Education, Hannah Kreider.

Previously announced sponsored riders include Americans Andrew Welles and Spencer Smith. Junior riders Jake Wasson and Sophie Simpson are also part of the Parlanti and KASK team of brand ambassadors.

On the West Coast, KASK and Parlanti have both enjoyed a presence at horse shows and tack shops throughout California. As a result, KASK and Parlanti have partnered with A-list hunter rider Nick Haness. Haness is a top rider in the hunter divisions and has won numerous championships through  his own operation, Hunterbrook Farms in Temecula, CA.

“KASK and Parlanti have experienced huge success and popularity across the U.S. and beyond during the winter show season,” said North American Brand Manager, Gianluca Caron. “From the hunter field to the jumper ring, we are so proud to be partnered with such a talented group of riders. We are already looking forward to a very successful summer season with our riders.”
