US Para-Dressage Rider Beatrice de Lavalette Finds Meaningful Connection
Thursday, April 30, 2020
United States Para-Dressage athlete and 2021 Paralympic hopeful Beatrice de Lavalette knows the importance of keeping her horses at their fittest. That is why she relies on the BEMER Horse-Set to assist with maintaining her horses' peak performance, as well as the BEMER Pro-Set for her own well-being.
Utilizing pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology, the BEMER Horse-Set delivers the patented BEMER Signal into the horse's body, which enhances healing, recovery and injury prevention. The BEMER Pro-Set utilizes the same BEMER signal in products specially designed to optimize muscular health and performance by increasing circulation.
"Since receiving the BEMER Horse-Set, my horses have been having a session every morning before work," shared the young athlete. "The difference has been really amazing. They are more supple, more relaxed, but more importantly, more ready to work in a shorter period of time. They clearly enjoy their BEMER moment every day!"
A lifelong horse-lover, Beatrice has been riding and showing horses the majority of her life, but that passion was put to the ultimate test in 2016 when a suicide bomber detonated an explosion just a few feet away from her at the Brussels' Zaventem International Airport.
With burns covering 35% of her body and severe internal injuries, Beatrice was red-tagged by emergency responders, but she fought the entire duration of her recovery, and despite the amputation of both her legs below the knee, she fought for her chance to ride again. With the aid of prosthetics for both of her legs, Beatrice was able to saddle up and continue with her competitive goals. Now a Grade II Para-Dressage athlete, Beatrice recently completed her first season competing at the CPEDI 3* level and has her sights set on competing at the 2021 Tokyo Paralympics.
"Beatrice's story is truly one of resilience and grit," shared Brad Horn, Head of Marketing for BEMER Group North America. "She has overcome everything that life has thrown at her and found a way to continue what she loves most, which is being involved with horses. BEMER Group North America is beyond proud to have Beatrice on our team and to provide her with the BEMER Horse-Set to keep her horses in top shape, as well as our BEMER Pro-Set for humans to help Beatrice and other equine athletes feel their best in the saddle."
Founded in Germany in 1998, BEMER Group has been at the forefront of vascular therapy and microcirculation for both humans and horses. BEMER enhances suppleness allowing horses to exercise more effectively and promotes relaxation before and after application so horses can rest, digest and recover better and faster.
The BEMER Horse-Set has been proven to provide a broad range of health benefits for horses by improving their blood circulation and ultimately their health in a natural, non-invasive way. Benefits include: enhanced recovery from illness and improved suppleness during training or competition prep. It can also provide quicker regeneration during the healing process, such as recovery from muscle tension or tendon/ligament/muscle injury. For its outstanding quality, the BEMER Horse-Set was honored with the Red Dot Award for Product Design.
