Ecogold Number One Choice of Riders at the Rolex Kentucky
Montreal, QC, Canada
For the sixth time in his career Phillip Dutton, (who won Rolex KY in 2008 riding Connaught), placed second overall at Kentucky, this time riding Acorn Hill Farm's Woodburn. He also finished sixth on Ann Jones' The Foreman.
Dutton said, "The Ecogold saddle pad that I used at Rolex gave my horses the best comfort and fit that I could hope for and helped the horses give their best. They are particularly revolutionary in the jumping phase where their non-slip abilities really give an advantage."
Boyd Martin piloted three horses around Rolex Kentucky, posting three clear cross-country rounds. He finished fourth on his own Neville Bardos, 11th on Bruce Davidson Sr.'s Rock on Rose and 12th on Densey Juvonen's Remington XXV.
Martin said, "When you're traveling at high speeds and jumping big fences, your life depends on having security in the connection from your saddle to the horse. Ecogold pads provide that perfect fit, regardless of the horse's shape and size, that keeps you secure galloping down steep hills and jumping off big drops, while providing comfort for your horse's back. You need to give your horse every chance to do their best and Ecogold's air flow and grip provides this."
Karen O'Connor finished seventh at Rolex Kentucky riding Joan Goswell's Thoroughbred mare Mandiba, the horse she rode at the 2008 Olympic Games. O'Connor commented, "Ecogold pads are amazing, they keep the saddle put without irritating my horse's back. The breathability is incredible, too: even on the hottest days, the pads wick sweat off my horse's back."
