DUBLIN, Ireland- 17 October 2012 – Tredstep Ireland is proud to announce its participation in the Moria J. Caffarey Perpetual Award, to be presented at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show on the evening of October 20th.  The award was established in 1998 and is given to honor the late Moira Caffarey, a highly respected caretaker for legendary Grand Prix horses including “I Love You” and “Johnny’s Pocket.” Caffarey dedicated her life to caring for world-class equine athletes, and the award embodies her spirit by recognizing the groom of the winning Grand Prix horse.


As part of the award package, the winner will receive a pair of Tredstep’s stylish, high performance Giotto paddock boots. Tredstep understands the long hours and demanding lifestyle of a professional groom, and the Giotto’s soft leather upper, molded sport high impact cushioning foot bed and dry-lex moisture wicking top layer are specifically designed to keep the wearer dry and comfortable all day.


About Tredstep Ireland

In 1993, Irish entrepreneur and Three-Day Event rider Aidan Keogh saw the need for a better half chap, and set out to create his own.  A former design student who studied fine arts, Keogh believed that he could improve the comfort, performance and aesthetics of riding wear, while respecting the traditions of a Centuries-old sport.  His product eventually redefined the market and brought half-chaps to the mainstream where they are now standard equipment for every rider. Along the way he created Tredstep Ireland, a company driving innovation, but ever respectful of the traditional roots of equestrian sport.


Tredstep now offers a complete collection of chaps, boots, gloves and accessories including the newly released Raphael tall boot, part of their superior Renaissance Collection, all designed to make the riding experience more enjoyable.
