Ashleigh Flores-Simmons

Para-Dressage Rider

Ashleigh Flores-Simmons, a 23-year-old, Grade II Para-Dressage rider uses Sport Innovations products to keep her 13-year-old Danish Warmblood, Binero, in peak condition.

Ashleigh was born premature, with Cerebral Palsy, and was not able to walk until she was around 4 years old. Ashleigh overcame her physical challenges and she embraced her love of horses and began riding at the age of 8. At 13, Ashleigh had extensive surgery to assist with correcting the positioning of her legs. Ashleigh began competing in horse shows when she was 13 years old and in 2007 she got her first horse, an Arabian mare named Little Toi Boots. Ashleigh and Boots went as far as Arabian Sport Horse Nationals, earning a Top 10 Title. Recently, Ashleigh became acquainted with the U.S. Para Equestrian Association (USPEA) and the world of Para-Dressage. She now has her sights set on the World Equestrian Games (WEG) and the Paralympics, competing in Para-Dressage.

Accomplishments

Flores-Simmons competed at the 2015 USEF Para-Dressage National Championships in Houston, TX, winning Reserve National Champion in the Grade II High Performance Division and earning 71.8% in their freestyle. We wish @TeamAshleigh the best of luck in the 2016 season!

Chris Hickey

Trainer “Hilltop Farm”

“I love my magnetic & massage combination blanket! We use it on my High Performance horses up to 4 times a week. More if needed. They feel warmed up when I get on and ready to go to work with loose relaxed muscles. I expect a lot out of them, so I like to give them the best care that we can. Sometimes that means preventative care as well!”

“I also like this blanket because it goes so far up the neck as well as just helping the back. For a Dressage horse I think that is VERY important!”

Olympic Competitor

I have had my “Impulse Line” magnetic blanket for almost two years. I can definitely feel a difference in my horses on the days I use the blanket before riding; they feel a little bit looser, a little bit more warmed up before I begin working. I also use the boot on a chronic coffin joint problem, and I believe that it has helped to keep the joint maintenance to a minimum.

Olympic Competitor

My horses’ backs have been infinitely better since I began using SportInnovations’ “Impulse Line” Therapy Blanket. Because it combines both magnetic and massage therapy, it provides me with options for treatment that other blankets don’t offer.

I find it very easy to use, light-weight, and comfortable for my horses. The Hoof Pad combines the same pulsed magnetic and massage therapy, and we’ve seen great improvement in our horses with sore feet.

“I’m proud of where my team is today,” Kent says. “It is a long way from where it began and I’m very fortunate to have an amazing group of people around me that have helped make my career what it is now. I’m excited to see where we can take it from here.”

Kent uses the “Impulse Line” Magnetic & Massage Therapy on his horses.

Accomplishments

Farrington’s transition from junior to professional was seamless; in his first three years as a professional he earned over $1 million in prize money and received the Maxine Beard Award, presented to an individual American rider who best displays true potential to represent the United States on the international stage.

“My most memorable win will always be my first 5* Grand Prix win with Madison,” Farrington says. “I realized that day that I had a chance to make a career out of being a top show jumper.” Today, Farrington has become one of the best riders in the world and his dream of making a career of show jumping has become a reality. His year is spent traveling the globe, collecting wins from Shanghai to Paris to LA, as he continues to build on an already impressive list of international victories.
