Jump Canada has named Frankie Chesler of Orangeville, ON, the ProChaps "Athlete of the Month" for October.

While living and training in the Netherlands, Chesler has enjoyed great success in the month of October.  Based in Tull en Wall, NED, for the past four months, Chesler has been competing in Belgium, Holland, and Germany.

On the first weekend of October, Chelser was one of seven riders to advance to the jump-off in the Grand Prix at CSI*** Welkenraedt, Belgium.  Riding Sher-Al Farms' VDL Nuit de Pomme,

Chesler placed second after clocking in less than a second off the winning time.

At CSI Hasselt, BEL, held from October 21 to 24, Chesler and VDL Nuit de Pomme were among the 53 entries to advance to the jump-off in the 1.50m Grote Prijs Studbook Zangersheide, placing fourth overall.  Chesler also enjoyed several other top ten placings at CSI Hasselt, placing third in the 1.40m Prijs Het Belang International, seventh in 1.40m Prijs FSC, and ninth in the 1.40m Prijs AJK.

"I am so excited to be honoured as the ProChaps "Athlete of the Month" for October," noted Chesler.  " have been working very hard the past few months in Europe in order to gain the international experience I need to represent Canada to the best of my ability.  Thanks to my family and sponsors, I have the opportunity to wake up every morning and work at a job that I love and want to do for the rest of my life.  It is fantastic that Pro Chaps has chosen to sponsor this worthy program that encourages excellence in our sport."

In recognition of her achievement, Chesler will receive a pair of riding chaps, compliments of ProChaps.  A Canadian manufacturer of high-performance riding chaps, ProChaps is the proud sponsor of the Jump Canada "Athlete of the Month" program and rewards each selected rider with a brand-new custom pair of its groundbreaking chaps.  Using innovative materials, ProChaps has radically advanced the construction of riding chaps to cutting edge perfection.  At the 2004 Spruce Meadows "Masters" Tournament in September, ProChaps was selected to receive the prestigious award of 2004 Equi-Fair New & Innovative Product Award for their original and unique chap design.  For more information, please visit www.prochaps.com .
