ThinLine© Offers Equestrian Aid Foundation Donation Banks at Upcoming Tack Shop Trade Shows

Friday, August 7, 2009

Durham, NC (August 6, 2009) – ThinLine©, a company known for their technologically advanced shock absorbing saddle pads, will act as a liaison for the Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF) by being the distribution point of EAF donation boxes at upcoming tack trade shows. Tack shops attending the American Equestrian Trade Association (AETA) show can stop by the ThinLine booth to order an EAF bank.

“Having an Equestrian Aid Foundation donation box at your tack shop really shows your customers that you care,” said Elaine Lockhead, President of ThinLine. “EAF provides financial assistance to members of the horse community who have suffered from catastrophic illness or injury. The tack shops can stop by the ThinLine booth and purchase a donation box for $20 from us and then collect money in the donation boxes.”

Lockhead said she is a strong supporter of EAF and believes it makes a difference in the lives of equestrians. The EAF is a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance for basic medical and living expenses for those in the horse community suffering catastrophic illness or injury.

“Displaying an EAF donation bank is an additional way to support the equestrian community,” Lockhead said, adding that tack shops can order their donation boxes from ThinLine at the AETA Trade Show, August 15-17, in Pennsylvania.  “Please stop by the ThinLine booth, #850, at the AETA show.”

While Lockhead believes in the EAF, she also believes in her ThinLine products that range from saddle pads and boots to a new line of tack. Known for benefiting both the horse and rider, ThinLine products, which are all made in the USA, are supple, lightweight, breathable pressure distributing no slip foam that has multiple benefits and no drawbacks. “The unique texture and suppleness of our ThinLine technology allows the product to conform to the horses body and when warmed to body temperature ThinLine products will form to the horses head, back, legs or girth area to create a custom fit and feel,” Lockhead said, adding that she is excited about ThinLine’s new line of tack.

The new line of ThinLine tack is being embraced by the equestrian community, just like their English and western saddle pads have been. ”Our tack is the most durable and easy to clean product on the market,” Lockhead said. “In fact, dirt and water won’t stick, leaving a soft, no slip feel for horse and rider.

Many riders are excited about the new line of tack as ThinLine looks and sews like leather but offers more benefits for the horse. “Our tack offers the same advantage our saddle pads always have – comfort and health for the horse,” Lockhead said.
