Attention to detail can be the difference between winning and losing when it comes to equestrian sport. An ill-fitted saddle or a bit that is too severe are things that can create obvious resistance but are we really aware if our horse is comfortable beneath saddle cloth, bandages and protective boots.
When ligaments and tendons are exposed to hot temperatures for long periods, the effects can be seriously detrimental. Just as overheating muscles in the back can be detrimental to the way a horse works and can lead to lethargy and discomfort.
A British Engineer and Inventor with a passion for horses and equestrian sport, saw the need for a more advanced range of equipment that helped reduce heat and aided sweat absorption as well as protecting from knocks and rubs.
After successfully launching the world famous “sports and travel towel” with highly absorbent properties, Arash Motesherai spent several months developing the materials and a set of products with totally unique cooling, breathable and sweat absorbing properties. The MicroPerformance+ equestrian products range so far includes tendon and fetlock boots; a range of saddle cloths for work riding and competition and bandages.
Arash explains the premise behind it all “Our equestrian products combine pioneering technology and British engineering excellence with exceptional quality and attention to detail. These have been with the horse’s well-being at heart and comfort and durability is at the forefront of development.”
“Through ergonomic design and specialist advanced materials, we produce products that are not only functional, but have unique sweat absorbing, cooling and breathable qualities to the extent that we already ha
ve vets, physiotherapists and professional riders recommending them.”
Riders currently using MicroPerformance+ include international eventer Jonty Evans and international show-jumpers Ruby Fryer, Zoe Smith and Tegan Jones .
