Absorbine® Myoplast® Honors Reining Competitors At Jacksonville Equestrian Center

Jacksonville, FL- Two happy riders recently rode away from the Florida Reining Horse Association Snowbird Slide show with extra prizes – giant gift baskets full of Absorbine products thanks to a sponsorship from Absorbine® Myoplast®. The National Reining Horse Association show, with sponsored classes from Absorbine, was held at the Jacksonville Equestrian Center.

Gus Spreng, aboard Smart Little Dudley, was the winner of the Rookie Level 2 class sponsored by Absorbine, and Terry Carter, on Katie Luck Be A Lad, won the Absorbine sponsored Green Reiner 2 class. Carter trains with George Aldridge from Webster, Florida.

"Competitors in the sport of reining were vying for some wonderful prizes sponsored through our partnership with Absorbine Myoplast. The Jacksonville Equestrian Center was excited to be part of the partnership that provides sponsorship for this special event hosted by the Florida Reining Association," said Lesa Williams, Jacksonville Equestrian Center SMG Assistant General Manager.

"The attractive gift baskets were given to riders in entry level classes and they were just thrilled," said Amanda Miller, show manager, adding that both classes were for non-professional, amateur riders. "The green class is our most entry level class, for those riders just trying to break into the sport. The rookie level is the next step up, for those that have gained some experience in the show pen, but do not yet feel ready to compete with the top level non-professional riders."

Absorbine was pleased to sponsor the show and introduce riders to Myoplast, an amino acid supplement formulated to support muscle performance in horses. European champions have been using Myoplast, the number-one-selling muscle supplement in Germany and only available in Europe through veterinarians, for many years. Absorbine Myoplast is now sold in the United States and is available at local tack shops, in catalogs and feed stores.

"The products are used by all the horsemen so they were really thrilled," Williams said, adding that the Jacksonville Equestrian Center, which opened in 2004 and is one of the premier equestrian facilities in the Southeast, will host two NHRA shows at its facility this year.
