Equissage To Sponsor A Race At Sandown Park

IN an exciting new venture, horse physiotherapy experts Equissage are to sponsor a race at Sandown Park on August 14.

The Equissage Handicap Stakes will run over one mile and six furlongs for three year olds.

Already sponsors of race horse trainer Giles Bravery, Equissage is well known in the racing world but this is a first foray into race sponsorship.

There are six races at the meeting and the groom of the best turned out horse running in the Equissage race will receive a £50 cash prize.

All trainers with horses running during the afternoon will also be given a £160 money-off voucher for an Equissage system.

Kim Smith-Bingham of Equissage said: "We are delighted to be sponsoring the race. Many of our customers are from the racing world and we feel it is important to put something back into a sport which has proved such a winner for Equissage."

The Equissage pad gives a deep cycloidal massage to the whole horse and many top names in the racing world are keen advocates of the system.

Top racehorse trainer Giles Bravery, based at Revida Place in Newmarket, has been using the Equissage pad on his team of 40 horses for more than two years and has been delighted with the results.

Says Giles: "Equissage is an invaluable tool around our yard. The hand massager unit is very successful on sore shins and the process is very therapeutic. You can see them relax as tension is relieved from their muscles. All our horses are treated with Equissage at least once a week."

Used extensively by top racehorse trainers the Equissage system has been developed by Niagara Healthcare physiotherapy products that have been used on humans for both injuries and mobility for more than 50 years.
