And you thought only four-star riders had reason to be psyched about Tipperary’s Dash for Cash at Rolex! While it’s true that you have to actually compete at the four-star event at Rolex for a chance at the $15,000 prize money, you can still win a fantastic Tipperary Eventer Pro 3015 Vest even if you ride at the “un-star”* level.
The contest is similar to last year’s Tipperary Snap That Contest, where in a bit of a point-to-point paparazzi fest, readers dueled with smartphones and SLRs to capture the best pic of a Rolex rider sporting the Eventer Pro on the cross country course. The Nation voted. And Bruce Kendall’s photo of Shandiss McDonald won.
This year, just as Tipperary’s Dash for Cash bonus money dangles temptingly before riders not only galloping through the verdant bluegrass, but also in the dressage and show jumping arenas, you can take your shot out there too Take a picture of a competitor in a Tipperary Eventer Pro or T-Series helmet in any phase and you’ll be in the running for your very own Eventer Pro.
At the moment, we’ve confirmed that Daniel Clasing and Jessica Phoenix will be riding in Tipperary. As we find out others, we’ll keep you posted.
In the meantime, check out this amazingly comfortable piece of protective gear you could win if you remember to keep your finger out from in front of your lens.
Read what EN product reviewer Colleen Peachey says about the vest in this post: “The new Eventer Pro is actually made with something called Evolution Foam (Tipperary’s own material), which literally molds to your body while you are wearing it. And not only that…”
Or even better, go try one on for yourself at Bob Mickler’s tent.
*Un-star level: Often includes public displays of rodeo moves, unplanned dismounts and other random acts of disqualification, all in the face of jumps no taller than bales of hay.
