The UltraShield name has become synonymous with the ultimate in equine pest control, trusted for decades as an end to fly frustrations. Speaking to that trust, the line of Absorbine fly sprays and masks have been named Official Fly Control Products of the United States Equestrian Federation (U.S. Equestrian). This new sponsorship expands a partnership established in 2015, when Absorbine was named the Official Liniment of U.S. Equestrian.
Absorbine and U.S. Equestrian strive to improve the equestrian experience, offering excellence, value and education to riders and enthusiasts. Absorbine is celebrating 125 years of caring for horses this year, UltraShield being a big part of that history. U.S. Equestrian has been dedicated to uniting the equestrian community and serving as guardians to the sport since its inception in 1917. Their mission to promote growth in the sport is an initiative Absorbine is proud to support.
“We at Absorbine are proud that the national governing body of equestrian sport can put their trust in Absorbine products, and are pleased to be able to support U.S. Equestrian’s dedication to growing and maintaining the sport,” said Chris Jacobi, president of Absorbine. “Our partnership with the organization began with our time-trusted liniments, and now continues with our innovative UltraShield products. In offering this expertise in muscle care as well as fly control, we look forward to working together with U.S. Equestrian in their mission to bring excellence to riders and equine enthusiasts across the country.”
U.S. Equestrian is likewise pleased to partner with a company exhibiting shared values and goals. "We are excited to welcome Absorbine back as the Official Liniment of U.S. Equestrian," said U.S. Equestrian CEO Bill Moroney. "And we are thrilled that they have chosen to expand their partnership with our organization by also becoming the Official Fly Control Products of U.S. Equestrian. Absorbine has demonstrated a long history of devotion to the health and welfare of horses through the quality of product that they offer, and is exactly the type of company with which U.S. Equestrian is proud to partner.”
