Cequent Performance Products (CPP), a leading manufacturer of towing and trailer products, welcomed world renowned horse trainer Stacy Westfall to its Michigan facilities earlier this month. Westfall, who is sponsored by the Cequent brand Tekonsha, the leading manufacturer of brake controls, spoke at Cequent’s Tekonsha facility and its Plymouth headquarters, discussing her childhood in Maine, college and married life in Ohio, equestrian competitions, and life on the road.
“It’s great to have one of our sponsored athletes take time to visit with our employees and talk about their use of our brands,” said Tom Benson, president of Cequent Performance Products. “For Stacy, that means Tekonsha brake controls in her vehicles, of course, but she and her husband are also loyal to the Reese brand as well, and that, to me, shows how much faith people like Stacy have in our products.”
Westfall is one of the most sought-after clinicians in the equestrian industry. She rose to international fame in 2006 after becoming the first and only woman to win the Road to the Horse competition. Her bridleless, bareback performance that same year at the All American Quarter Horse Congress Freestyle Competition won her international fame via the world wide web, and led to an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show a couple of years later.
