The Equestrian World Class Programme established 'Supporters of World Class Equestrian' in 2004 to assist funded riders on the Programme with the expensive business of keeping and competing horses at the top of their sport.
The concept is based on a partnership approach and it draws together a number of companies who wish to support riders on the Equestrian Programme, either through offering products, discounts or services.
The following companies are 'Supporters of World Class Equestrian'
FMBs Magnet Medics
Haygain Hay Steamers
FMBs and Magnet Medics
FMBs and Magnet Medics supply a variety of Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF), Massage, Laser and Transcutaneous Electronic Nerve Stimulation (TENS) therapy products suitable for horses, riders and their dogs.
The company's range comprises boots, wraps, rugs, therapy kits and much more but the latest addition to the collection, the Pulsed Electromagnetic and Massage rug from Activo-Med, has proven popular with many top equestrian athletes including Zara Phillips, Anky van Grunsven, Richard Davenport and event rider Kitty Boggis.
The unique rug provides dual therapy to the horse from poll to tail and automatically switches between programs to offer the horse the most efficient combination of therapies. PEMF Wraps, PEMF and Massage Hoofpads, Laser equipment and TENS therapy also run off the same control unit. Pulsed Electromagnetic and Massage therapy can be used for a number of conditions including muscle tension, soft tissue damage, slow healing bones, degenerative joint and muscular diseases, inflammation, sport injuries, circulatory and metabolic disorders and arthritis. They are also very useful when used pre warm up and post exercise.

Haygain Hay SteamersHAYGAIN hay steamers are a range of scientifically-proven hay steamers that produce palatable, dust-free hay, helping maintain a healthy respiratory system to enhance performance. HAYGAIN's patented steam distribution manifold system ensures even, thorough steaming throughout all of the hay.
Fit for purpose they are designed to be effortless and simple to use; a relief for those suffering with back problems. Savings and benefits beyond your horse's health become evident in potential reductions in vet bills, forage costs, water (if you currently soak) and potential competition overheads due to inability to perform through coughing or suchlike.

NuuMed started making numnahs around 17 years ago, so we are thoroughly tried and tested. We still design and make all our products at our factory in Somerset, England, and that enables us to provide the flexibility, accessibility, accountability and quality control levels we know our customers look for - and it means if you can't find it, we'll make it!
Along the way, NuuMed has notched up some notable firsts:
* HiWither numnahs and pads - a design unique to NuuMed and the first to follow the contours of a horse's back;
* The use of specially mixed wool knitted onto cotton yarn as opposed to a dead sheep's skin - all the wool you need with no skin attached
* The Combination design - the first pad to address the changing shape of a horse.
Today, the range has a numnah or pad to fit most saddles, which means that whatever your favourite equestrian activity - hacking, dressage, eventing, hunting, endurance, racing, western.... there is a NuuMed numnah or pad that's right for you.

In 1981, Louise Woof pioneered the 'Woof Boot' - the first brushing boot to be made from neoprene. This was a major innovation compared with the traditional leather boots available at the time as it meant that horses could be protected with boots that were light, durable and easy to care for.
For thirty years now Woof Wear has been at the forefront of protection for horse and rider with design and development at the heart of the brand. By incorporating testing and feedback from riders, we develop trusted, practical and comfortable products, which are being valued equally by leisure riders, professionals and even the Police Forces across the UK. Not least we are very proud to be the producer of the UK's best selling general-purpose brushing boot!
Supporting the talented riders on the Equestrian World Class Programme is a great opportunity for us to contribute directly back into equestrian sport and we are very proud of this long-standing relationship.
