Wellington, FL — For over a century, equestrians around the world have abided by the German-based brands Effol and Effax horse care and leather care products for keeping their tack in top condition and their horses’ coats shining. Effol and Effax are two brands that were founded on the principals of providing the highest quality care products with a commitment to supporting the vitality, performance, and health of horses. Also upholding this commitment is international Grand Prix dressage rider and trainer Jaime Amian, who recently established a partnership with the legendary brands Effol and Effax.
USDF Gold Medalist Amian began his dressage career in his home country of Spain. Amian’s international education has taken him to New Zealand, France, and Belgium, where he acquired scores consistently in the 70s at multiple shows on several different horses. Throughout his career, he has worked with some of the world’s most respected trainers, including Juan Manuel Munoz Diaz of Spain and Klaus Balkenhol of Germany. While working closely with Balkenhol for several years, Amian became increasingly aware of the Effol and Effax brands. Although the products were present in past facilities he trained at, Amian’s appreciation for the useful horse and leather products grew while working for Balkenhol in the company’s home base of Germany.
After recently returning to his current home base in Wellington, Florida after teaching a series of clinics in Australia and New Zealand, Amian is now equipped with the extensive line of Effol and Effax horse and leather care products. He is excited to explore the entirety of the products’ potential at top dressage competitions around the world.
“I have always used the Effol and Effax products on my horses and tack,” Amian explains. “They are fantastic quality products that improve the lifetime of your tack.” In partnership with Effax, Amian was outfitted with effective leather cleaning oils, balms, soaps, and conditioners that contain a combination of bees’ wax, lanolin, and avocado oil for promoting a moisturizing shine. All Effax leather-cleaning products are perfect for keeping Amian’s boots, bridles, and saddles in top condition for performance.
Additionally, Effol now provides Amian with products that keep riders and horses looking their best. “We are especially impressed with the Effol SuperStar and Ocean-Star Spray products, which give our horses such a beautiful, natural shine,” Amian states. Effol’s Ocean-Star is a unique spray shampoo that contains pearl extracts for a shimmer that lasts long after the bath, and can be accompanied by the White-Star Spray-Shampoo designed specifically for white or grey coat colors. After bathing his horses, Amian uses the SuperStar-Shine spray, which provides the perfect sheen and conditioning for mane, coat, and tail without an artificial feel.
Before riding, Amian is keen to apply the Effol Mouth-Butter, which he uses on his horses in both the apple and banana flavors. The Effol Mouth-Butter helps protect the corners of the horse’s mouth by providing a soft and supple barrier, while also giving a delectable taste that encourages a happy mouth during rides.
“The horses look and feel amazing. Effol and Effax have great products that work for both horse and rider.” Amian has already begun incorporating the tried-and-true, dermatologically tested products into his horses’ daily regimen, and agrees with Effol’s sentiment of “friendship needs care.”
Amian is proud to support the legendary Effol and Effax brands and continue using the horse-friendly products in his stable.
