WELLINGTON – Drew Discount grew up around horses and is proudly giving back as a sponsor to the Vinceremos “Buck Off’.
Discount Dirtworks and CDM Dressage are two of the sponsors for the seventh annual mechanical bull-riding competition that benefits the Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center.
This is the first season that Discount Dirtworks and CDM Dressage have joined the “Buck Off” as sponsors.
Dressage rider Catherine Malone of CDM Dressage became involved with Vinceremos about six years ago, working as a volunteer and as a member of the Young Professionals Committee.
“I’m happy to support Vinceremos, it’s a wonderful cause,” said Malone. “Everyone who works there is genuinely nice. I like being a part of it.”
“I’m familiar with Vinceremos,” said Discount, who attended the second round at the White Horse Fashion Cuisine. “The Buck Off is all for fun, but most importantly it’s for a good cause.”
Growing up around horses, Discount showed from leadline on while his mother was a hunter-jumper and his father bred quarterhorses at the family farm. Drew stopped riding around age 10 and soon became a professional motocross rider.
He began working in the grading industry in 2002 as a teenager and was able to combine his interests.
“I grew up on equipment and with horses, so I put two and two together and started this business,” said Discount.
Discount Dirtworks specializes in all-weather horse arena footing using state-of-the-art equipment,” according to Discount.
“We specialize in clients that only want the best,” said Discount. “We don’t cut corners, we believe in high quality at a fair price, especially since my name is on it.”
The renowned Miami Global Champions Tour is among the numerous properties that Discount Dirtworks did the installation.
