American Gold Cup Continues Long-Time Relationship with Hermès Sellier

North Salem, N.Y. – Sept. 20, 2018 – Returning to the American Gold Cup once again this year is the popular French high-fashion, equestrian and lifestyle brand, Hermès Sellier. An expert in both the world of equestrian sport and leisure since 1837, Hermès Sellier is delighted to support equestrian sports at leading events around the world, including the American Gold Cup.

The $35,000 Hermès Sellier Classic will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29, during the American Gold Cup on the Grand Prix Field at scenic Old Salem Farm.

“We are proud to continue our partnership with such a prestigious brand as Hermès Sellier,” said show manager Michael Morrissey of Morrissey Management Group. “Hermès Sellier’s rich history as an equestrian lifestyle brand, as well as our shared values of excellence and elegance, align well with our event and commitment to providing an unparalleled experience for our guests.”

The horse is far more than Hermès Sellier’s first customer. It is also its partner in designing saddles and other riding equipment. This affinity enables Hermès Sellier to devise and assemble its high-quality products in perfect proportion to the horse. At Hermès Sellier, there can be no equestrian sport, and no good horsemen, without a happy horse. As a result, Hermès Sellier has sought to perfect the technical excellence and performance of its equipment for more than a century.

Hermès Sellier and its master saddler, Laurent Goblet, work in close collaboration with partner riders and their horses to create each new saddle. In the workshops, cutting-edge technology joins forces with the craftsmen’s know-how. Together, they are used to design each saddle to the exact measurements of the horse that will wear it.
