For Immediate Release –
International Dressage Rider Susan Dutta Joins Draper Equine Therapy’s Advisory Board
Canton, MA (February 4, 2010) –International dressage rider Susan Dutta has joined the Draper Equine Therapy Advisory Board. As makers of therapeutic products for horses and riders, Draper Equine Therapy relies on competitive and international riders such as Dutta to represent their company and stand behind their technologically advanced products.
A well-known FEI rider who represented the United States as a reserve rider at the 2007 Pan American Games in Brazil, Dutta’s home is in Florida although her horses are currently based in Germany. “I am commuting right now between Florida and Germany, where I train with Rudolf Zeilinger,” Dutta said. “I have three Grand Prix horses and several young horses in training. My son is in school in Florida, but my whole family will spend the summer in Germany.”
Dutta, whose husband Tim owns Dutta Corporation, an international horse transport company, is thrilled to join the Draper Equine Therapy Advisory Board. “I am really happy with the Draper products. We use the Recovery Wraps, Anti-Sweat Sheets and coolers on our horses,” she said. “I have a groom who has been to three Olympics with another rider and he is thrilled with the Recovery Wraps. In addition to being durable, comfortable and good looking, the Recovery Wraps work great. We have noticed that the horses seem more comfortable and tired legs become refreshed after being wrapped.”
Dutta’s horses also wear the Anti-Sweat Sheets and Coolers from Draper and Dutta described the products as a “must have” for all horses. “They should really be a part of every horses’ wardrobe,” Dutta said. “Our horses wear the Coolers as much as possible and they are more relaxed when they are in their stalls. I am jealous of my horses!”
Kat Wojtylak, Product Manager of Draper Equine Therapy, said the innovative company is pleased to have Dutta on board. “Susan has really embraced our products because they are working so well on her horses,” Wojtylak said. “She is looking forward to using our human products also, which will come in handy on all those long plane rides as she flies between Florida and Germany.”
Draper Equine Therapy products contain the innovative smart fiber Celliant™/Holofiber®, which has been proven to reduce pain, increase oxygen levels and help balance overall body temperature in the body. “I truly believe that Draper’s products are far superior to other products out there. Their technology is fantastic,” Dutta said.
Draper Equine Therapy produces products for both horses and riders. Horse products include saddle pads, indoor and outdoor blankets, bandages and wraps. Products for riders include T-shirts, socks, blankets, joint support sleeves/wraps, and back belts. In addition, they offer a line of home therapy and spa products including sleep liners, eye pillows, shoulder wraps and blankets.
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.
