Hay Steaming Demo & Steamer Giveaway in the Chicago area’s Barrington Hills, Illinois, Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019
Eventing champion Allison Springer was one of the first American equestrians to embrace the benefits of Haygain high temperature hay steaming. Ten years later, she continues to be a firm believer and considers steaming critical to the health and performance of all the horses in her program.
Allergies and breathing difficulties in her top horse of 10 years ago, Destination Known, led Allison to Haygain Hay Steamers. Arthur, her partner in winning the 2016 Carolina International CIC3*, thrived on steamed hay for different reasons. “I had always struggled to maintain his weight and appetite,” she recounts. But Arthur agreed with studies confirming steamed hay’s increased palatability and became a horse that “dived right into his hay.”
Haygain is proud to sponsor Allison’s upcoming clinic in Barrington Hill, Illinois, where she grew up and has returned for several years to share her knowledge and passion with hometown riders during this clinic.
She is Fox River Valley Pony Club graduate, having earned her A rating at 16, and earned her colors in the Fox River Valley Hunt. Exercising racehorses for Bruce Duchossois’s Hill ‘N Dale Farm in the area was another part of her equestrian upbringing. The latest addition to her long list of competitive accomplishments is winning the USEF National Two Star Championship aboard “my little brown unicorn,” Crystal Crescent Moon, at early November’s VHT International.
Steamer Demo & Giveaway
The clinic begins Saturday, Nov. 23 at 7:30 a.m. At 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Allison will demonstrate how the Haygain steamer works, explain how steamed hay has helped her horses and answer any questions. A portable HG One steamer – $949 value —will be given away at the end of the weekend. To enter, attendees will fill-out a raffle ticket and the winner’s name will be drawn and announced on Sunday afternoon. The winner will be emailed if not present then.
Riding spots in the clinic are sold out with a waiting list, but auditing is free and encouraged. Parking is limited, so car-pooling is encouraged.
Developed in conjunction with the Royal Agricultural University in England, high temperature hay steaming rids hay of 98% of the dust, fungi, mold and bacteria found in even top quality hay. These inhalable irritants are the main cause of respiratory conditions that affect over 80% of active sporthorses, often without obvious symptoms. Feeding steamed hay significantly helps prevent and manage these conditions on the Equine Asthma Spectrum.
Haygain also manufactures the ComfortStall Sealed Orthopedic Flooring System and distributes the Flexineb Portable Equine Nebulizer.
