Riders with a positive attitude and a smile on their face make the show world a far better place, and Draper Equine Therapy® wants to reward those riders by proclaiming they are putting their “best foot forward.” Draper Equine Therapy®, makers of therapeutic horse and rider products featuring the innovative “smart fiber” Celliant®, will be sponsoring the Draper “Best Foot Forward” Award each week during the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival and at the inaugural year of the Global Dressage Festival.
“Draper Therapies is dedicated to giving back to those who possess a positive attitude both in the show ring and out. It’s an attitude that grooms, riders, owners and trainers choose to project that enables a ripple effect of ‘good vibes’ to be passed on,” said Kat Wojtylak, Product Manager of Draper Equine Therapy®. “At Draper, our goal is to ‘create and embrace change,’ which includes having a positive attitude, and we look forward to finding it in riders and then rewarding them for it.”
Winners of the Draper “Best Foot Forward” award will win prize packages worth up to $300. “We will be on the lookout for those inspiring a positive attitude throughout each show. A smile is contagious and when we’re all in an environment working long hours, nothing greets you better than a smile on someone’s face,” Wojtylak said.
Draper Equine Therapy® is an official sponsor of the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival and the Global Dressage Festival and proud to be part of the Wellington equestrian scene that attracts riders from all over the world. “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.
Wojtylak added that she is thrilled that the winners of the Draper “Best Foot Forward” Award will have the opportunity try their products out by feeling and watching the results. “We have riders with feet problems that put on our socks and call us the next day to tell us their pain is gone. We have one rider who says he will never take off our socks because he is pain free for the first time in five years,” she said.
