Back On Track® Product Giveaways Featured for USET Foundation Holiday Fundraiser Presented by SUCCEED® & Wellington Classic Dressage
Wellington, FL – November 25, 2009 – December’s USET Foundation Holiday Fundraiser has many surprises in store for exhibitors and spectators alike with exciting equestrian performances, product giveaways and high-end auction items that have been donated to the event. SUCCEED® and Wellington Classic Dressage will be hosting the Holiday Gala Fundraiser at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in Wellington, FL, on December 11 & 12, 2009. The event will be a benefit to raise money for the United States Equestrian Team (USET) Foundation.
The USET Foundation Holiday Fundraiser is pleased to announce that the two evenings of holiday fun will include product giveaways and auction items from Back on Track®. Back on Track® is a unique brand of pain-relief products for horses, dogs, and people. The company has generously donated approximately $10,000 worth of products to be given away to the audience throughout the performances along with $5,000 worth of products that will be up for bid during the auction.
Bo Lofvander, CEO Back on Track®, is proud to be able to contribute to a good cause with his company and looks forward to the exciting event. “The fundraiser is to support a good cause and it is important for us to support the USET Foundation and all of the equestrian groups as much as we can,” he stated.
Lofvander explained that Back on Track® is donating leg wraps to be given away to the audience as well as blankets and saddle pads to be bid on during the auction. “Our products help the well-being of the horse,” he said. “They increase the blood circulation of the horse, they help horses that have problems with their backs or legs, and they even help the riders themselves. A lot of the top dressage riders use our products – Steffen Peters, Michelle Gibson, Courtney King-Dye, Debbie McDonald, Ashley Holzer – they all endorse our products, plus a lot of the show jumpers. It is not a miracle, but the products work very well and that is why a lot of people use them.”
Lofvander plans to attend the fundraiser and looks forward to the selection of performances that he will have the opportunity to see. “I think it is great that they have so many top riders attending the event and all of the different disciplines and different horses,” he acknowledged. “I think all of the disciplines have their own unique qualities, especially with the top riders and their horses. I am really looking forward to it, and I think it will be very interesting and fun.”
Other new items that have been generously donated for the auction include: certificates for one Grand Prix Soft Shell Riding Jacket, one pair of Pikeur Breeches, and one GPA Titium Pro Helmet all donated by Frantisi USA Inc; one breeding to Contester II, a 2002 imported Holsteiner stallion by Contender x Lancetto donated by Josie Walsh (JW Sporthorses); two Charles Owen helmets; ten cases of SUCCEED® Digestive Conditioning Program donated by Freedom Health; a 50th anniversary USEA Mountain Horse Jacket and baseball cap, and many more items.
