West Palm Beach, FL (April 19, 2010) – Tracey Winter, who owns Tranquility Dressage in Wellington, Florida, turned in another consistent ride at the Gold Coast Dressage Association’s Grand Finale I show, winning the Grand Prix Special on her long-time partner Martailo. Draper Equine Therapy, makers of therapeutic horse and rider products featuring the innovative “smart fiber” textile Celliant™/Holofiber®, sponsored Winter’s class held at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center.

“Martailo is always very consistent. I know I have the same horse at home that I do at the show,” Winter said, adding that she is looking forward to trying the products from Draper Equine Therapy.

“We have really enjoyed sponsoring the winter dressage season in South Florida and we offer Tracey our congratulations,” said Kat Wojtylak, Product Manager of Draper Equine Therapy. “It’s been an amazing winter season for so many talented riders and certainly for Tracey also. She is going to really enjoy our products, and we look forward to hearing how much.”

Winter described her partnership with the 17-year-old Martailo as “thrilling.” Winter bought Martailo when he was only five-months-old, and brought him up through the dressage levels by herself. “He’s really come a long way, including winning Championship and Reserve Championship at Regionals every year,” Winter said. “He had two bouts with laminitis while at second level and we almost had to put him down. He managed to come back from that and make it to Grand Prix and that is truly a gift. I am thankful to have a horse like him to ride every day.”

Martailo, a Trakehner/Thoroughbred, has a long list of accomplishments to his name, including being named the 2008 Gold Coast Dressage Association Year-End Open Grand Prix Champion and the 2008 Year-End Trakehner Champion. In 2009, Martailo was awarded the Trakehner Verband Award, donated by the German Trakehner Verband for the most successful Trakehner in dressage.

“Tracey and Martailo’s success is remarkable,” Wojtylak said. “We awarded Tracey with a saddle pad for this win, and hopefully she’ll notice a significant difference in him after using our products.”

“Draper products are made of Celliant™/Holofiber® which is a polyester based fiber that contains a blend of microscopic optically responsive particles. Holofiber/Celliant has been clinically proven in three double blind studies to help reduce pain, increase oxygen levels and help balance overall body temperature,” Wojtylak said. “Products in the Draper Equine Therapy line are designed to help horses build stamina and recover faster from exertion and injury.”

Products containing Celliant have no adverse effects as they work directly with the body to make it more efficient and can be used continually. For more information on Draper Equine Therapy, visit their website at www.draperequinetherapy.com.
