Riverhead, NY (October 27, 2014) — “I couldn’t find a better combination than this – quality people and quality products and an industry I love!” said Doreen Kula, a successful entrepreneur and equine business owner, on her new position working with Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery as the next step in her versatile life. Metlar, the United States distributer of Neue Schule bits (pronounced ‘noy-uh shool-uh’) and other innovative top-quality equestrian equipment, is thrilled to welcome Kula on board as the company’s Vice President of Operations.
Vice President of Operations certainly won’t be the first prominent role in a leading company that Kula has played. After excelling in her business education through graduate school, Kula, of Rochester, New York, assisted several businesses in their startups, managed large firms, and served as a coach and mentor for entrepreneurial companies.
Even as the accomplished businesswoman achieves numerous successes in her industries, her world ultimately revolves around horses. Kula operates Aisling Sport Horses, a breeding business starring her extraordinary Qualified PRE stallion Festivo MR (Yeguada Militar and Escalera bloodlines). “When I was about eight years old, we discovered that I’m extremely allergic to horses,” Kula admits. “However, much to my parents’ dismay, I had the horse addiction— bad. Despite the allergies, after several years my parents finally realized I wasn’t going to give it up.” True to Kula’s ambitious nature, she achieved her equestrian goals and currently owns three dressage horses. She is now overjoyed to begin a career that will utilize her talents for both horses and business.
“Working at Metlar is an ideal fit between my passion for horses and quality products, and my experience and background in operations and entrepreneurship,” Kula says. She knew the job would be right for her after speaking with Mette Larsen, owner of Metlar Premium Performance Saddlery. “The opportunity to work with Mette was what attracted me to Metlar first and foremost. We share a love of horses, dressage, and quality products. I felt great about getting involved in Metlar because I know Metlar will only sell the best products on the market— I know if Metlar is selling it, I can rest assured that it’s a quality product. Metlar sells the best products for the good of the horse. Everything at Metlar is about the good of the horse and a quality product that works! I’m excited to be a part of Metlar to get the word out about our products to help make the life of every one of our ‘horse’ customers better. I’m excited to get behind products that I can truthfully say to anyone I speak with – ‘these really make a difference.’ And also, when I wear my Metlar belt, I feel like a million dollars,” Kula smiles.
