Draper Equine Therapy® Steps Up As A Sponsor Of The 2012 Fidelity Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials
Blenheim, England (June 13, 2012) – Draper Equine Therapy®, makers of therapeutic horse and rider products featuring the innovative “smart fiber” Celliant®, is pleased to announce they will be sponsors at the 2012 Fidelity Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials in Blenheim, England. The horse trials will take place September 6th to the 9th, following the London Olympics, with the famous Blenheim Palace as the backdrop for the three-day event.
“Draper is beyond excited to be partnering with such an amazing and prestigious event,” said Kat Wojtylak, Product Manager of Draper Equine Therapy®. “The famous Blenheim Palace is highlighted in movies and top photographs and is known around the world. Draper is thrilled to have the opportunity to bring health and wellness to a new venue.”
As the official sponsor of the “Draper Therapies Best Foot Forward Challenge,” Draper will sponsor the official course walk with the Blenheim cross-country course designer. “Draper will also host the Best Foot Forward Course Walk Challenge, which is going to be very exciting,” Wojtylak said.
The Best Foot Forward Course Walk Challenge will include collecting symbols or letters on all 27 cross-country fences and recording them on a scorecard. “The completed scorecard will be handed in at the end of the walk and redeemed for an instant prize from Draper and then all of the scorecards will be placed in a drawing for one lucky winner to win additional Draper Therapy products,” Wojtylak said.
Everyone taking part in the Best Foot Forward Course Walk Challenge will receive a pair of Draper Body Therapy® Active Socks. The socks help increase circulation and oxygenation to the feet and have been known to decrease soreness while wicking away moisture and eliminating irritations. “We have had riders with feet problems put on our socks and call us the next day to tell us their pain is gone. We had one rider who said he will never take off our socks because he became pain free for the first time in five years when he started wearing them,” Wojtylak said, adding that she is thrilled that those taking part in the Course Walk Challenge will have the opportunity to try their products out by feeling and watching the results.
“Draper Therapies is committed to helping riders worldwide discover the therapeutic benefits of our products for horses, humans and canines. All of our products contain Celliant®, which has been clinically proven to increase circulation and oxygenation while decreasing pain; it all leads to increased recovery time after muscle exertion or injury; and decreases in soreness, stiffness, and swelling,” Wojtylak said.
Draper Therapies products have been on the market since 2003, with a century worth of fabric manufacturing experience standing behind their parent company, which began operating in 1856. “We have been able to refine our products down to a very practical and economical therapeutic line that not only has sufficient clinical data to back up our claims, but our products are made entirely in the USA,” Wojtylak said.
Draper offers three complete lines of Celliant® enhanced products: Draper Body Therapy®; Draper Equine Therapy®; and Draper Canine Therapy®. Draper Body Therapy® offers products ranging from athletic gear to spa therapy, all offering the wonderful benefits of Celliant®. The specific product line includes eye pillows, shoulder wraps, T-shirts, blankets, sport supports, sleep liners, socks and back belts. The Draper Equine Therapy® line, designed to help horses build stamina and recover faster from exertion and injury, includes everything from leg wraps and blankets, to quarter sheets, hock boots and anti-sweat sheets. Complimentary to their other lines, Draper Canine Therapy® offers smaller four-legged friends the same benefits in the form of beds, wraps and blankets.
