I don’t normally put HorseGirlTV press releases in my blog but I was so honored at what Jim said that I just have to share! Enjoy! Check out the pict at the bottom too as I really did run into the luncheon (knit cap, mitten, down coat, uggs and all fresh off the plane and ground transport. What wasn’t included in the PR is that when I was walking up there, David was saying something like “Angelea will be modeling our winter fashions for us today.” and I was looking around seeing all these people in suits and nice dresses. Oh well! It was great and they thought me yelling from the back of the room was cute but honestly I didn’t know what else to do!


Congratulations USEF Award Winner HorseGirlTV

HUBERT, Nc February 19, 2009 The Internet’s premier equine-based series, HorseGirlTV, and dressage rider Angelea Kelly were honored during the U.S. Equestrian Federation Annual Meeting this past January. Angelea’s production company HorseGirlTV received the 2008 USEF Best Broadcast Media Pegasus Award for its webisode “Inside Stübben North America.”

In true HorseGirlTV over the top style and thanks to flight delays, Angelea walked into the Hall of Mirrors banquet room the exact instance governing body president, David O’ Connor, was announcing her travel difficulties and inability to be there. A boisterous ‘I’m here!’ echoed from the back of the hall. Bags in hand, Angelea ran up to the podium to receive the award in person.

“All I could think in that moment upon arriving is ‘I’m missing it’ and ‘Oh my gosh, I just yelled at the USEF President!’,” Angelea said smiling.

Angelea produced the prize winning piece but likewise is a true Stübben advocate, riding her 8 year old mare by Contucci in a Stübben. A long-time dressage rider, Angelea has competed through Grand Prix earning both her USDF Silver and Gold Medals with international aspirations.

“I’ve had more custom saddles burn holes in my pocketbook than I care to remember and have been through over a dozen off the rack saddles but it wasn’t until Jim and Buddy at Stübben explained to me their philosophies and the basics of how they have made Stübbens for years and years I started to be sold. Seeing their craftsmanship in each was a big point for me. My mare, Carrara, and I have big plans together so finding a saddle that works for both of us takes away one huge step of getting into the big arena someday!” Angelea explained. “I’m so honored to have had the chance to see Stübben North America first hand and meet all the great folks there! Maybe someday they will invite me to Germany!”

Jim Erhmann, President – Stübben North America had this to say, “As a manufacturer of high performance equipment, quality and value are just a few of the terms we use to explain our products. The innovation and craftsmanship built into our products have always been legendary, and we thank Angelea for her professional commitment to the horse industry as a whole, and in particular her personal direction on the segment filmed at Stübben headquarters. As a family owned company for over 114 years, we welcome Angelea into our family, and look forward to a stronger working relationship into the future.”
