Bucas Rugs up the Dressage Superstars
Team GB Olympian Gold medallist Carl Hester is delighted to announce his sponsorship agreement with premium Irish rug brand BUCAS.
Keeping his horses and canines warm and comfortable this winter Carl joins the elite group of leading riders who choose Bucas.
Bucas the premium Irish rug company are delighted to announce they will be supporting Carl Hester MBE and his stable of top equine athletes.
Already well acquainted with the rugs as his team mate and protégé Charlotte Dujardin has been dressing her horses (and dogs) in Bucas for the past two years, Carl is delighted that Bucas will be keeping his horses warm and comfortable in all conditions.
The sponsorship deal was agreed after Carl and his team experienced the superb technical qualities that Bucas rugs offer during the successful trip to WEG. Keeping top level horses at an even temperature in all sorts of situations can prove to be difficult as Alan Davies, Carl's Travelling Groom can testify.
"We wanted to make sure on our international competitions that we had rugs that were intelligent! Horses of this calibre can get hot and cold very quickly and in the past we had to change rugs all the time. We found that Bucas rugs were labour saving whilst giving the horses comfort and warmth. The Stay Dry lining is a god send – no more changing rugs every hour!"
Carl also believes in turning his horses out in the field. His Head Groom Fiona Lawrence recommends the Bucas Smartex Turnout for keeping all the horses clean, dry and warm. Featuring the Stay Dry lining, this rug is put on the horses straight after they have worked and been washed down.
Fiona comments, "The Stay Dry lining never gets wet from their coats as it wicks the moisture to the outer and they just dry off naturally in the field staying warm and comfortable. It means we can just wash and go! No worries about them drying off first and then turning out, keeping rug changes to a minimum – life is so much easier now and no wet rugs hanging around the yard!"
Ulf Casselbrant from Bucas commented
"We have always been supportive of equestrian sport and work with riders who appreciate our commitment to producing quality products using the most advanced technology available. Our rugs give these busy riders and their teams the security that their horses are warm and dry. The range gives them a rug for every situation, be it travelling, at rest in the field or after heavy competition. Bucas look after the horse's every need."
