Achieve Equine, makers of FLAIR® Equine Nasal Strips and exclusive distributor of VIP Equestrian™ Saddle Pads and Iconic Equestrian™ Saddle Pads is excited to announce its 2022 line-up of innovative, evidence-based equine products.
FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips were developed in the mid 1990’s and introduced to the market at the Breeders’ Cup in 1999. Now, over 20 years later, FLAIR Strips have been used over 3.5 million times and are backed by eight clinical studies in the lab and on the track in English, western, and racing disciplines. Currently, the Strips are available in eight solid colors, known as our “Classics”, and a variety of Limited Edition designs including the most recent design we launched in 2021: leopard print. Additional colors and designs are set to launch later this year, too.
VIP Equestrian Saddle Pads were introduced to the Achieve Equine product line-up at the end of 2020 but have been available in Europe for a few years. The VIP™ Pad is made of VEteq™, a unique viscoelastic polymer that has been the gold standard for pressure protection in human health care for over 50 years. The VIP Pad is not a gel and stands far ahead of any gel pad with its impact protection and Bobble™ surface design. At only 8mm thick, the Pad is designed to complement a correctly fitting saddle. The VIP™ Original fits most English saddles and certain western saddles, while the VIP Pony Small and VIP Pony Large fit smaller horses and saddle sizes. A fourth size designed to fit larger horses and certain western saddles, the VIP Wide, will be available mid-year.
New to the Achieve Equine product line-up for 2022 are the Iconic Equestrian™ Original 2-in-1™ Saddle Pads which feature a revolutionary removable inner liner designed for the horse’s health and rider’s convenience. Securely fastened to the top pad with its patent pending 5-Point Attachment System, the LinerPad™ System is designed to be completely removed from the top pad and machine washed in a cold cycle. When washing, use the complimentary Magic Wash Balls to remove any excess dirt and hair. Available in both a Dressage cut, and a Jump cut in a variety of stunning colors, the Iconic Equestrian Saddle Pads are sure to become a barn favorite.
