LV Performance sponsors Dressage Standout Kim Herslow

LV Performance is proud to announce it has signed on as a sponsor for dressage rider Kim Herslow, a member of the 2015 U.S. Dressage team and the gold medal winning U.S. Pan Am Dressage team.

Herslow is expecting a big season of international competition this year with Rosmarin (aka Reno), and a string of other horses competing in the Wellington circuit.

“We’re proud to be working with Kim, and excited to see her compete this season,” said Annabella Muerger, owner of LV Performance. “I have a great respect for a rider like Kim who understands every aspect of caring for her horse and farm and has handled every aspect herself.”

She is a self-made equestrian who began riding as a child, and developed a talent for working with green horses and assessing them for both the appropriate discipline and match with new owners.

“I am excited for the partnership with Annabella Muergers and LV Performance,” Herslow said. “They carry all the top supplements for the best prices, and their probiotic aid , Great Gut, has my horses feeling the best! We had a fecal done from Cornell on Reno, and apparently he now has super poop! Isn’t it funny the things that make us owners happy! My horse’s health is paramount, and I want only the best for him so this is a perfect partnership all around.”

Herslow and Reno became the dressage pair to watch after success during the 2013 in the small tour in Wellington, Florida, and winning the team gold at the Nation’s Cup at the end of the season. Numerous wins again in Wellington and the Pan Am selection trials in Europe led to their 2015 performance at the Pan American Games in Ontario.

The team won gold, and she posted a personal best in both the Prix St. Georges and Intermediare I, which helped secure the United States a spot in the 2016 Olympic Dressage competition.

She attended Delaware Valley College and earned a degree in Equine Science, studying Dressage training equine health and nutrition, and management skills.

Herslow’s philosophy is to incorporate Classical Dressage training into all disciplines to maintain soundness through proper balance and suppleness, she says.

She splits her time between Wellington and Stockton, New Jersey, home to her Upper Creek Farm, and trains with Debbie McDonald, developing Dressage Coach for the United States Equestrian Federation.
