—April 2, 2020

Press Release—Event Clinics, creator of the digital EC Platform for Equestrians, announced today an extensive rebranding in response to accelerated company growth and business vision. Effective immediately, the company will transition fully to doing business as STRIDER™.

Originally founded in 2016 as a single application, the company now known as STRIDER™ offers a suite of digital products and software services that help equestrians connect to opportunities across the industry, grow revenue, and build professional capacity.

STRIDER’s digital platform, which includes a proprietary tool that supports online payment processing without merchant fees, is today used by over 80,000 riders and organizers across the dressage; hunter/ jumper, equitation, eventing, and polo disciplines for educational and competitive ventures. STRIDER’s payment tool is being used throughout the industry to facilitate safe digital payment for equestrian services during the COVID-19 crisis.

“Our platform adoption is expanding quickly, with new users from all across the equestrian community. As we expand our company’s offerings from transactional services into technology services, advertising publishing services, and multi-vendor marketplace support, this rebrand is a natural evolution of the company’s growth.” said Tara Swersie, CEO.

Over the last 12 months, STRIDER™ solidified its position as an industry leader in the equestrian marketplace with revenue growth of more than 300%. Moving forward, platform users can expect additional software enhancements and expanded offerings as STRIDER™ continues to facilitate connections for the equestrian community through partnerships with key industry associations and top international athletes.
