Mary King will be wearing Ariat boots at home and at competitions thanks to her new sponsorship

Leading British event rider, Mary King, will be wearing Ariat boots for the rest of the 2002 season after signing a sponsorship deal with the footwear company.

Mary, whose previous successes include four team gold medals and winning at Badminton and Burghley, has made a successful start to the 2002 season, including fourth place at Chatsworth CIC with King Solomon III and fifth at Punchestown CCIO *** with Ryan V.

She is on the reserve list for September’s World Equestrian Games in Spain with King Solomon III.

Mary is delighted to have the company’s support: “Ariat’s Crowne Field Boots are everything I need in a cross-country boot. They are elegant and stylish, as well as comfortable and hardwearing.”

In addition to the Ariat Crowne Field Boot, Mary will receive Ariat Maestro Tall Boots for dressage and the Ariat Pro Series for everyday use.

Mary joins fellow event riders Clayton and Lucinda Fredericks, show jumper Fred Bergendorff and father and daughter dressage team, Ferdi and Maria Eilberg in being supported by the company.
