Equitex is delighted to announce their sponsorship of the British Dressage Advanced Medium Winter Championships.

Equitex Saddle Pads are Europe’s leading equine back care specialist, manufacturing a range of unique closed cell foam saddle pads, which help protect the horse’s back from the pressures and impact of ridden work. Closed cell foams have been shown in independent research to be the most effective way of reducing impact when riding the horse in comparison to other gel or open cell foam saddle pad.

Not only do Equitex saddle pads protect the back, but they are also GUARANTEED NON-SLIP helping give saddle stability. Each Equitex Saddle Pad ensures a well-fitting saddle has a superb fit every time, regardless of fluctuation in the horse’s shape through age, seasonal changes, rest periods or varying levels of work. This advanced design and unique combination of materials allows the saddle pad to perfectly adapt to the horse without increasing bulk beneath the saddle.

Equitex has a large collection of elegant and stylish dressage squares which offer high performance for all levels of rider. The brand will be supporting all owners and riders in the Advanced Medium classes at the NAF Five Star Winter Championships at Hartpury with advice and products to help them get the best out of their British Dressage experience. You can buy Equitex saddle pads online or even via a virtual video shopping experience with UK boutique owner Amanda Fisher. Pads are available to trial and the brand encourages many horse health professionals and saddle fitters to take up this opportunity.

Amanda Fisher, exclusive distributor of Equitex Saddle Pads in the UK commented; “We are delighted to be official sponsors of the British Dressage Advanced Medium Winter Championships.  This is a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate the incredible properties of Equitex Saddle Pads. After an extremely successful National Dressage Championships show we were keen to continue the momentum.  We have many dressage riders who choose to put their trust in Equitex when competing and we want all BD members to experience the huge benefits of riding in Equitex.”
