Back On Track Donates
Therapeutic Saddle Pads to
The Challenge of The Americas
Wellington, FL- - Bo Lofvander, the owner of Back On Track products, has generously donated 120 therapeutic saddle pads as gifts for the first lucky purchasers of VIP tickets for The Challenge of The Americas (COTA). This exciting event will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2013, at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center in West Palm Beach, FL. COTA features the "Who's Who" of top equestrian competitors in the United States, Canada, Latin America and Europe, all helping to raise money for Play for P.I.N.K. and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Lofvander said it is important to support COTA, and believes in its cause to raise money for Breast Cancer research. "We all know someone who has been affected by this," he said. "I have a very close friend who passed from breast cancer." He is adamant about giving back to the community and donates a variety of products to deserving charities, including the therapeutic saddle pads.
These pads, used by top riders all over the world, help keep a horse's muscles loose and supple and can accelerate muscle recovery rate from strenuous exercise. The pads retail for $83 and are one of Back on Track's best-selling products.
Lofvander added he is happy to donate the saddle pads to The Challenge of The Americas. "I hope a lot of people come," he said. "It's always fun there."
