EquiFit Announces Their Sponsorship of Boyd!!


A genuine commitment to horses and riders drives EquiFit to seek new and better ways to help them perform, recover, be comfortable and succeed at all levels. Our unique blend of ingenuity and horse world expertise allows us to continuously adapt premium innovations in healthcare and fitness to the needs of equestrians.

The result: distinctive products for high performance both in and out of the ring.

"I first learned about EquiFit at the American Eventing Championships this year when I was asked to demo their product ShouldersBack. I was seriously impressed with the position it put me in. Besides getting me in the optimal position for riding, it’s been helping for developing muscle memory so I am constantly standing taller. I now wear ShouldersBack for all three phases. For dressage, it keeps me better aligned, for cross county it keeps me in the back seat on the big drops and for stadium, it keeps me in better balance with my horse overall. It provides great support and it’s comfortable to wear.

Besides ShouldersBack, EquiFit makes many very innovative products for horses and riders. Their T-Foam is true memory foam and is in all the boots and bandage liners. It gives each horse a custom fit and is the best thing I’ve found for protecting and supporting my horse’s legs. The T-Sport wraps roll on beautifully and they don’t slip or twist during work like polos. They also provide great support and they prevent any irritating sand or dirt from getting in and rubbing my horse’s legs. Silva keeps stealing my T-Sport wraps and bandage liners and I’ve only got one pair! They are really fantastic for day-to-day workouts.

I want the best for my horses. It takes a tremendous amount of hard-work and dedication to get them to them to the top. It is evident that EquiFit takes their job to heart by producing top quality products that are comfortable and effective."

Shires Blankets, Just in Time for Winter!

Shires Equestrian Products is privileged to be able to support Boyd Martin. The firm, which holds a Royal Warrant from Queen Elizabeth II for providing the Royal Stables with equestrian equipment for horse and rider, is based in Herefordshire, England. Shires is well-known in Europe, and while it has been selling in the U.S. for 20 years, it opened its first U.S. distribution center in 2008. Today it sells its products in the U.S. both online and through a network of dealers. 

Shires is unique in that it owns and operates its own factories, thereby ensuring that it has complete control over the manufacturing process as well as the raw materials used. Shiretex, its proprietary 600 to 2,000 denier waterproof ripstop fabric, is utilized in many of the high quality, sturdy—and very affordable—horse blankets the firm manufacturers each year.

Sponsor Spotlight: SmartPak Equine

We have had our high performance horses on supplements from SmartPak Equine for the past couple of months now and they are all looking their best and performing better than ever. Everyone at the company has been very helpful in figuring out exactly what are the best supplements for each of our horses.

The best part is the packaging is especially helpful when we take our horses on the road, or in Remi's case back in November, overseas. If you remember the photos Caitlin took from that trip, she had an Everest-size pile of gear to organize so having his supplements ready to go in their handy Smartpaks was one less thing for her to worry about. We'd like to thank SmartPak for their sponsorship and look forward to working with them in the coming year!
