“Of course you should get them!” is what California Dressage Society trainers had to say about purchasing Click Horse Products like the Fetlock Shield and Hock Shield™ Ultra during the 50th anniversary of the CDS Finals in September at Murieta Equestrian Center.

Founder, Shari Click, of Santa Cruz, and Click Horse Products, Inc. were sponsors of the CDS Level 1 Open McLeod Perpetual Trophy for Horse of the Year, and saw firsthand how dressage riders and trainers were in perfect accord when it came to investing in innovative Click Horse Products like the Fetlock Shield and Hock Shield Ultra.

“One competitor who came by my booth saw the Fetlock Shields and thought they would be perfect for her horse, but wanted her trainer to take a look at them before making a purchase,” Click said. “She returned about an hour later and showed her trainer the Fetlock Shields, who picked one up and asked how much they cost. When I told her, she said, ‘Why are you dithering about this? Of course you should get them!’ Then the trainer said, ‘As a matter of fact, my horse could use these, too’ and bought a pair for her own horse!”

Click added how another dressage trainer stopped by the booth to recount how much she loved using her Hock Shield™ Ultras, and would be sending a client over to purchase two more pairs. “She asked me to make sure he got the correct size and style. Of course I assured her he’d get the best in customer service.”

Look for Click Horse Products to bring its winning style to Kentucky in 2018 in the Thornhill/Intrepid International booth at the world-renowned Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, April 26-29, at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

Equestrian Events, Inc. (EEI), producer of the iconic Kentucky Three-Day Event, and United States Equestrian Federation (USEquestrian) announced October 12 that they would join with Land Rover North America to announce that Land Rover was assuming a four-year title sponsorship of the Kentucky Three-Day Event.

Following eight years as Official Vehicle and five years as Presenting Sponsor, Land Rover has increased its support of one of America’s biggest and most prestigious equestrian events.

One of only six Four Star Three-Day Events in the world and the only one in the Western Hemisphere, the Kentucky Three-Day Event annually welcomes more than 80,000 spectators and is televised on NBC, where the competition reaches more than 115 million households.

The Kentucky Three-Day Event attracts the world’s best horse-and-rider duos vying for their share of $400,000 in prize money. Previous equestrian stars have included World No.1 and Rio Olympic Gold medalist Michael Jung of Germany, who defended his Kentucky title in 2017 to complete a record-breaking hat trick of wins, as well as Land Rover Ambassador and granddaughter of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Zara Tindall MBE, who was third in the 2017 event.

For difficult-to-bandage wounds or recurrent sores, Hock Shields are a preferred choice in hock protection by Pro Equine Grooms, Long Riders Gear and Parelli Natural HorseManShip 5-Star Master Instructor, David Lichman, and now offer replacement elastic straps available for just $5 a pair. Learn more at www.hockshield.com or call (831) 426-1206.
