Accuhorsemat, the revolutionary new equine acupressure blanket developed in Sweden, is leaping into spring by sponsoring the Equestrian Sport Productions Spring Series at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center in Wellington.
Equine enthusiasts who want to improve their horses’ well-being will find the Accuhorsemat a simple, innovative solution. The company is looking forward to sharing its product with hunter and jumper riders participating in the annual spring series that follows the Winter Equestrian Festival.
The Equestrian Sport Productions Spring Series takes place from April 6 to May 16 and will host multiple hunter and jumper divisions. Accuhorsemat is sponsoring the series for the first time and will be the title sponsor of the $10,000 Accuhorsemat Open Welcome Stake class on Thursday, April 20. The open jumper class will take place in the International Arena and is open to riders competing at the 1.40m level or higher. The winning rider of this event will receive an Accuhorsemat.
Accuhorsemat, distributed by Acuswede, is a non-invasive acupressure horse blanket, designed to promote healthy circulation and recovery through increased blood flow, toxin release and muscle relaxation. Based on ancient acupressure practices, the Accuhorsemat stimulates points across the horse’s body to relax muscles and relieve pain. The targeted acupressure points increase blood flow to muscles, allowing them to relax and recover faster after training sessions.
The Accuhorsemat can also be used before riding to calm and relax a horse as it soothes muscles and promotes endorphin release.
“Accuhorsemat is thrilled to be involved in the Spring Series at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center,” said Colleen Elliott, co-founder of Acuswede. “We are looking forward to helping educate equestrians on the benefits of acupressure for their horses. We think the Accuhorsemat is going to make a huge difference in how horses get ready to compete and recover after strenuous competition.”
Hunters, jumpers and eventing riders who are interested in learning more about the Accuhorsemat can visit the Acuswede booth at the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, which takes place in Lexington, Ky., from April 28 through May 1.
