Showjumper Charlie Jayne rises to the top

Charlie Jayne from Elgin, IL is a rider to watch. At only 23 years-old, he has been earning his place among the top riders in the US since becoming the youngest in history to compete in a AGA Grand Prix at age 13, placing 7th. Last year, he was the 2nd alternate to the United States Showjumping Team for the Olympic Games with Urbanus, his 12-yr old Belgian Warmblood. Earlier this month, he rode Thomas Edison to victory in the $25,000 Charlotte Welcome Stake.
Charlie rides in our Stabilizer halfpad and Frictionless saddle pads: "Urbanus is very sensitive and the ECOGOLD pads keep the saddle from slipping without having to use a breastplate". We were lucky to meet Charlie this winter in Wellington and watch him & Urbanus place 3rd in the Grand Prix. Enjoy watching his ride!
