EquineLUX, the leader in innovative equestrian saddle pads, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of Canadian Olympian David Marcus.
An international dressage competitor, Marcus represented Canada at the 2012 London Olympic Games and won the North American League for the 2013 World Cup Final. He was Canada's top placed competitor at the prestigious CDI5* World Dressage Masters Palm Beach and has ridden on two Nations' Cup teams for Canada, both held in Wellington, FL. In addition, he has scored impressive grand prix victories at such high-profile international competitions as CDI-W Dressage at Devon (Devon, PA), CDI-W Global Dressage Festival (Wellington, FL), CDI3* Sunshine Challenge (West Palm Beach, FL) and CDI3* Angelstone International (Rockwood, ON).
The next goal for Marcus is to represent Canada at the upcoming 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France.
"Despite having only competed at the grand prix level for a short amount of time, David and Chrevi's Capital have amassed an incredible list of achievements," said Max McArrow, CEO and Founder of EquineLUX. "At EquineLUX, we strongly believe in their ability to reach future triumphs in international competition. We are proud to support David as he works towards his long-term goal of representing Canada at the 2014 World Equestrian Games."
"I am very proud to be sponsored by EquineLUX," said Marcus, who operates David Marcus Dressage in Campbellville, ON, just west of Toronto. "The elegant and technologically-advanced design of EquineLUX dressage saddle pads is both multi-functional and stylish. And most importantly, my horses feel great in them. I look forward to working with EquineLUX, and I know my horses will enjoy the experience, too."
The EquineLUX project was launched by a group of Canadian professional horse-wear and sportswear designers inspired by the idea of engineering technologically-advanced and high-performance saddle pads. To accomplish this goal, the most distinguished practices in sports apparel and gear manufacturing have been deployed, such as combining both synthetic and natural materials in an innovative, multi-layer design. EquineLUX saddle pads are proudly made in Canada to assure high quality of both materials and workmanship.
