Wellington, FL- Olympic Silver Medalist Peter Leone received the lion’s share of Absorbine® products during the first week of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival when his Lionshare Farm won the Absorbine Stall Safe® Tack Room Award. The Stall Safe Award is presented weekly to a stabling area that is visually attractive, well thought out in design, and safe for horses.
Leone was thrilled to win the Absorbine Stall Safe Award, a basket overflowing with products from Absorbine, and credited his crew for their organization and attention to detail. Leone’s Lionshare Farm, located in Greenwich, Connecticut, prides itself on creating an atmosphere that exemplifies the standard of excellence to which all show barns aspire whether at home or on the road.
Attention to detail has been a successful part of Leone’s career, which includes competing successfully on the Grand Prix circuit for almost two decades. In 1996, Leone and Crown Royal Legato were part of the USET’s Silver Medal team at the Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta.
Absorbine Stall Safe is also committed to success, including keeping stalls and horse areas virus and bacteria free. A disinfectant and sanitizer for stalls, stables, trailers and utensils, Stall Safe can be used wherever a horse is likely to come in contact with harmful and life threatening bacteria and viruses. It is also safe for use in dog kennels.
Stall Safe has been shown to be effective in guarding against Equine Herpes Virus Type 1 and Equine Influenza A Virus. It is an easy-to-use alternative to commonly-used chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, iodine, and pine cleaners.
Leone was excited to win the Stall Safe Award which is judged by an Absorbine spotter who visits the stabling areas at WEF each week in search of award winning tack rooms that have found their inner equestrian interior decorator.
