Lexington, Ky. – US Equestrian is proud to announce a valuable new partnership with Haygain, a leading science-driven horse health company, focused primarily on respiratory and musculoskeletal health. The partnership, which will provide products and support for US Equestrian’s High Performance Teams, will also benefit members through the Member Perks program, with specified discounts on Haygain products.
Research on reducing equine respiratory risks at the Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester, England, was the catalyst for Haygain’s formation in 2009. Their research led to the development of high-temperature hay steaming, which drastically reduces the dust, mold, bacteria and fungi found in even top quality hays around the world. Those breathable irritants are largely responsible for the respiratory problems that affect over 80 percent of active sport horses, often without obvious symptoms.
“We always strive to provide our athletes and members with access to the best products and technology available in the equestrian market and we are proud to announce this new partnership with Haygain,” said Bill Moroney, Chief Executive Officer of US Equestrian. “The research and data supporting the success and importance of this product, both in overall performance and general care, made this brand an important one for us to bring into the US Equestrian fold.”
Haygain’s three hay steaming models reduce breathable irritants by 98 percent and have become must-haves for horse owners all over the world – from elite international competitors to all riders and owners who want the best care for their horses.
“We consider US Equestrian the perfect partner for the American market,” said Edzo Wisman, CEO of Haygain, which has distributors in over 20 countries. “The idea followed Haygain being asked to provide hay steamers for the U.S. teams for the Pan American Games. When they came home from Lima, Peru with gold, silver, and bronze medals, we recognized the seeds of what will be a much broader partnership. We’ve now donated steamers to the US Equestrian Teams to make sure team horses have healthy hay wherever they are representing the red, white and blue. Equally important, we are thrilled to offer a five percent discount on all our products through the Member Perks program. At Haygain, it’s our priority that all horses be healthy and performing at their peak.”
