Tri-zone Training for 2008


British Eventing is delighted to announce Tri-zone® high performance boots, designed and developed by EQUILIBRIUM, as the sponsor of British Eventings new Training Series. This sponsorship deal will coincide with the launch of a revolutionary cross-country range from EQUILIBRIUM early next year.

At a height of 80cms the series has been designed as an introduction to British Eventing for the amateur competitor. Earlier this year the series was trialled at Mattingley and Pulborough. Both events were extremely successfully, attracting over 80 competitors at each.

Eight Tri-Zone® Training competitions are planned for next season and will take place country-wide. Dates and venues will be announced soon. EQUILIBRIUM will provide rosettes to tenth place in all sections as well as fantastic prizes in-kind from the extensive Tri-Zone® range.

Katie Wells, Marketing Manager at EQUILIBRIUM, commented: “Eventing is a true test of horse and rider across every discipline. There are many riders out there who would love to make that first step onto the eventing ladder, but in the past have found the Introduction class too big a leap from Riding Club Hunter Trials. We hope this new series British Eventing will become even more popular. “

Mike Etherington-Smith, BE’s Sport Director added; “EQUILIBRIUM approached us looking to support amateur riders in the sport, the new training level is the ideal fit. Their support of the Tri-Zone® Training competitions will really help us to give this level a thorough trial whilst providing some excellent eventing action for the sport’s largest group of riders. We look forward to working with them and developing this into a successful series. “

The Tri-zone® range of boots offer the horse 3 zones of intelligent, targeted protection where it’s needed most. The range includes the tendon, fetlock, over-reach and brushing boots.

The new tendon and fetlock boots, launched earlier this year at BETA combine innovative design with radical new materials to offer superb protection, genuine impact absorption and the ability to channel heat and sweat away from the skin.

Independent tests have rated Tri-zone® tendon boots as significantly better than other leading brands, showing they absorb up to 50% more concussion and have a 50% higher resistance to penetration.
