Mary Getsey Bernier‘s insight:

In 2010, Adidas produced a television advertisement, suggesting it would include equestrian sports in its line of products. See the YouTube video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q16WeQGTv_E&nbsp

Nothing seemed to come of that teaser ad, but now NIKE brings some very, VERY exciting news for equestrians:  “US Dressage rising young star Ayden Uhlir signed a contract earlier this week to become Nike’s first US Equestrian Athlete!”

We’ll be following this lead with great interest, and watch to see how long it takes other sports equipment companies to take notice of the missed opportunities in equestrian sports industry.
