Supracor’s new, breathable full-pad show cover with special Cool Grip® insert features optimal wither clearance for hunters and jumpers

SAN JOSE, CA, October 11, 2004—Supracor introduces its new, breathable full-pad Hunter/Jumper Show Cover with special Cool Grip honeycomb insert for keeping your horse cool and comfortable in the heat of competition.

“Our new full-pad show cover—featuring our signature Cool Grip insert—provides optimal wither clearance, shock absorption and stability for jumping while maintaining its stylish, streamlined look,” said Susan Wilson, director of Research, Design and Development.

Its white fleece trimmed, high-quality cotton cover is embossed with a customized quilted pattern that creates a bold outline for any English saddle. The breathable wool on the underside promotes ventilation for a horse’s back.

The breathable wool underside also enhances the ventilated Stimulite® Honeycomb Cool Grip insert which flexes with a horse’s movements. The insert helps eliminate sweat and keeps the fitted cover in place, preventing it from slipping back or to the side. It can be easily removed and used by itself and is naturally antifungal, antibacterial and odor resistant.

The slightly cutback wither area of the pad cushions the pommel while allowing for optimal flexion of the horse’s withers. When jumping larger fences, the wither clearance in the pad allows the withers to arch and bend without irritation or resistance and reduces the risk of excess reins catching on the front of the pad, impairing performance.

Supracor offers a full line of high-performance saddle pads for every riding discipline, including shock-absorbing hoof pads. Derived from the aerospace program, its flexible, fusion-bonded honeycomb technology has been applied to products that ensure the health and safety of people and animals.

Supracor’s shock-absorbing honeycomb can be found in high-performance footwear, bumpers for amusement park rides, bullet-proof vests, award-winning saddle pads, health and fitness products, and state-of-the-art cushions and mattresses that have set the standard for pressure-sore prevention by providing Total Pressure Management®: pressure relief, reduced shearing and ventilation to control heat and moisture.

Supracor’s products are made in California’s Silicon Valley from American-made, recyclable materials. A photo is available upon request.
