Custom Saddle to be Presented to Winner of the AGA Grand Prix Jumper Classic

Devoucoux to Present Custom Saddle to Winner of the $75,000 Fidelity Investments AGA Grand Prix Jumper Classic

South Hamilton, Massachusetts, June 13, 2007- The Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic is pleased to announce that Devoucoux, the French custom saddlemaker, will be the Official Saddle of the event and will present a jumping saddle to the winning rider of the $75,000 Fidelity Investments AGA Grand Prix. Devoucoux designs high quality saddles for optimum balance, weight distribution, and fit for both horse and rider.

"We design the best saddle for each rider and the way they want to ride," said Brice Goguet from the company's New Jersey office. "We go to the barn to work with the trainer and rider. We always strive to help the rider be comfortable in the seat and achieve a good position and balance." The flat seat and narrow twist allow more contact with the horse, Gouget explains, but "there are no rules, just the best preference for comfort and contact and to match the way the client rides."

Devoucoux will allow the top Grand Prix rider to choose from one of its three models of jumping saddles: Biarritz, Socoa, and Oldara, the newest model with a flatter seat and innovative design. All Devoucoux saddles are made with sumptuous French leathers.

The company prides itself on consistent quality and service. Devoucoux tack, including bridles, is sold directly through the company, and all fitting and after-sale support is easily arranged through its strategically located customer service facilities. There are 10 Devoucoux representatives in the United States, and the company attends major horse shows to meet with current and potential clients.

"We are pleased to be able to offer this additional prize to the winner of the Grand Prix," said Melissa Lovasco, President of the Jumper Classic. "It makes it all that much more exciting for the riders. The saddle is in addition to the Cartier watch that will also be presented to the winner. It seems that this is year is one for increasing incentives and adding to the fun of the show."
