19 May Enviro Equine Welcomes Mara DePuy as new Sponsored Rider
Enviro Equine & Pet is proud to announce a new partnership with world-class equestrian athlete, Mara DePuy, who has signed on as the newest Enviro Equine & Pet Sponsored Rider. The Enviro Equine team is excited to pair with DePuy to ensure the ongoing success and development of her own competition horses as well as the success of her many students.
“We are so ecstatic to have Mara DePuy, a leading force in the eventing circle, proudly representing our products,” said Angela Brackett, Marketing and Sales Director for Enviro Equine & Pet. “She is an incredible athlete with an amazing gift for bringing talented horses through the levels and we could not think of a better representative for Enviro Equine. DePuy’s belief in our products is a wonderful compliment and a testament to their effectiveness.”
DePuy grew up riding at Huntington Farm in Vermont and spent the summers as a working student for Jane Hamlin, who helped DePuy find a horse named Hopper and suggested that they begin working with Olympian and famed eventing trainer Washington “Wash” Bishop. The pair ended up advancing to the North American Junior & Young Rider Championships in 1993 and continued all the way to the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, where they placed 6th overall. DePuy has ridden in other world-class events such as the Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event CCI4* and the Red Hills Horse Trials CIC3*, in addition to two appearances at the Pan American Games. DePuy has continued her success with young and quirky horses by bringing Congo Brazzaville C, Here to Stay, Good Stuff, Nicki Henley, High Patriot and Funmaker all to success at the Advanced level.
DePuy has found that her niche is based on finding horses early in their event career, forging a strong partnership with them and pursuing the upper levels. She currently has an exciting pair of horses competing, with Congo Brazzaville C leading the string and the exciting young prospect, Wish I Am, proving to be another top contender. When she is not competing, DePuy regularly instructs students out of Willow Bend Farm in Round Hill, Virginia, and also works with horses in “boot camp” for weeks leading up to large competitions. DePuy additionally works with young horses who need training and upper level horses in need of a small tune-up or finishing work.
“Eventing is basically a triathalon for horses, so their bodies have to feel 100 percent for them to be able to perform,” explained DePuy. “Enviro Equine has a line of products that keep my horses feeling their best from the inside out. Congo had Lyme’s Disease as a young horse, and suffers from a sensitive stomach and a weak immune system, and he doesn’t always sweat properly. The GastroBalance, OmegaBalance, and ElectroBalance have really helped keep him comfortable and happy. Ever since starting on the Enviro Equine products, he has fewer symptoms and has been performing at the top of his game!”
