Since their introduction at the 1999 Breeders’ Cup races and the 2000 Olympics, FLAIR Strips have been regularly used for training and competition by world class professional horsemen as well as amateur equestrians worldwide. The company has been awarded over 20 patents in the U.S. and around the world directed to technologies based on the discovery that by supporting the external wall of the nasal passages, nasal strips reduce upper airway resistance to improve equine health and optimize performance.
