East Longmeadow, MA – Absorbine® is pleased to announce its official sponsorship of reiner Tom McCutcheon and his educational website, VirtualHorseHelp.com. Tom McCutcheon is one of the reining industry’s leading riders, is the owner and operator of Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses Inc., and has recently launched VirtualHorseHelp.com as a central source for equestrian news, entertainment, and training. McCutcheon’s accomplishments in the show pen, highly regarded horsemanship, and overall impact on the reining industry are qualities that align with the performance and heritage of Absorbine products, and the company is proud to support his efforts.

With lifetime earnings exceeding $1.4 Million, Tom McCutcheon is at the very forefront of today’s reining industry. His numerous achievements include an NRBC Open Championship, two NRHA Derby Reserve Championships, Tradition Open Futurity Champion, SWRHA Open Futurity Champion, multiple NCRHA Open Futurity Championships, a multiple NRHA Futurity Finalist, and he is a two-time USET Reining Championship winner.

Tom and his wife Mandy McCutcheon own and operate Tom McCutcheon Reining Horses, Inc., in Aubrey, Texas. It is one of the premier reining training, breeding, and rehabilitation facilities in the United States. Mandy, as well as their son Cade and daughter Carlee, are all accomplished equestrians. Most recently, the McCutcheons have launched VirtualHorseHelp.com as an interactive guide to training horses to perform better on a daily basis, regardless of discipline. The site provides advice and insight from top professionals on training, how they got started, and behind-the-scenes looks at horse shows and training programs.

Absorbine recognizes Tom McCutcheon as an excellent ambassador for the company’s products, and celebrates the opportunity to sponsor his efforts. "Tom McCutcheon’s list of accomplishments is impressive, and certainly worthy of the Absorbine name," says Chris Jacobi, General Manager, Equine Division at Absorbine. "Even more so, we feel his exceptional sportsmanship, his drive to grow the industry, and his enthusiasm for educating the everyday horse owner are values perfectly in line with our own. He is an excellent representation of what we and our products stand for here at Absorbine."
