Draper Therapies® ‘Best Foot Forward’ Awards Warm Welcomes to Winter Equestrian Festival Riders
Wellington, Florida (February 12, 2013) –“It’s cold back home,” confessed Draper Therapies® ‘Best Foot Forward’ Award winners Laurie Lewis and Tina Allen. Lewis, from Oklahoma City, OK, and Allen, from New Canaan, CT, have both made Wellington a regular stop on their show calendars for several years, but riding away from Weeks 3 and 4 of the Winter Equestrian Festival with new Draper saddle pads made for especially warm welcomes.
Lewis, who rides with Peter Pletcher of Houston, TX, came to WEF to compete in the Middle Adults with her Andiamo-bred 11-year-old Dutch gelding, Westbrook. “I love him, he’s got lots of personality. I’ve been riding him for almost a year and he’s getting more relaxed.”
Allen, who brought nine year-old Holsteiner, French Kiss, and seven year-old Galaxy, to ride in Adult Amateurs at WEF, also appreciated exchanging a “miserable” winter up north for warmer and more rewarding conditions in Florida. “My horses have been great,” said the Draper Therapies Best Foot Forward award winner. “This was Galaxy’s first time in the Adults. He’s gone from Baby Greens to 3’6”,” she beamed.
“After classes, or if a horse’s back is a little ‘cold,’ your new saddle pad will help increase circulation,” said Becky Shipps with Draper Therapies, who presented both women with their Best Foot Forward awards and Draper Therapies saddle pads. “Draper products reflect the body’s natural energy back onto itself, which will encourage circulation along your horse’s back.”
In addition to Best Foot Forward Awards, Draper Therapies’ innovative products include scientifically-proven therapeutic horse blankets, boots, wraps and saddle pads, as well as dog beds, mats and clothing, made with Celliant®, the world’s most technologically advanced fiber composed of a proprietary blend of minerals which have been extruded into a polyester fiber. Celliant encourages the alleviation of pain and other negative symptoms, and improves the body’s natural systems. Celliant oxygen studies done independently by three separate doctors conclude that Celliant increases tissue oxygen levels shown to increase performance, relieve pain and improve muscle recovery.
