Beezie Madden Wins The 2008 National at Spruce Meadows

Union City, Cailf. - June 16, 2008 - Ariat International, Inc. is proud to announce that Beezie Madden won the overall title at the 2008 Spruce Meadows National Tournament and was named the 2008 Spruce Meadows Canadian Champion. Madden won both events on the last day of The National including the $40,000 ATCO Structures Double Slalom on Conquest II and the $175,000 Nexen Cup Derby on Judgement.

Madden's performance at the Derby is legendary. She is the only rider in the history of the event to master the course without incurring a fault. In fact, Madden has won the Derby four out of the past six years and for the past three consecutive years. With twice the number of jumps as a traditional Grand Prix, the Derby is considered by many to be the decathlon of the show jumping world, testing the endurance, speed and skill of all horse-rider combinations.

Madden credits Judgement for her 2008 victory at the Derby, "Judgement simply loves this venue," said Madden. "He is a real power jumper. Even with weather conditions like we faced today, I knew he could do it."

Madden is currently the number one ranked Show Jumper in the United States and number seven in the world. She was recently named to the U.S. show jumping short list for the 2008 Olympic Games by the U.S. Equestrian Ad Hoc Committee on Selection. Madden joined Ariat earlier this year as an endorsee for their performance equestrian footwear and apparel collection. She will act as a product development consultant for the company and will be featured in the Ariat English brand campaign later this year.
