Sponsorship boost for show jumper

  • Scottish young horse producers and show jumpers, Jack and Isobel McGeoch, are being supported by Equissage

    Show jumpers and young horse producers Jack and Isobel McGeoch, from Gateshead, Kilmarnock, are celebrating a new sponsorship deal with Equissage, a company specialising in equine physiotherapy products.

    “I am delighted to have backing from Equissage,” said Jack. “I have used their product on a wide range of horses from newly backed youngsters to experienced show jumpers with good results. It really helps keep the muscles relaxed and toned.”

    Jack and Isobel have been producing horses for more than 25 years. Famous horses that have emerged from their yard include Janet Hunter’s show jumper Lisnamarrow, which won the Queen’s Cup at Hickstead in 1988, 1989 and 1991, and Chris Bartle’s event horse Word Perfect, who won Badminton in 1998.

    Although the sponsorship is still in its early stages, Jack is hopeful the relationship will become long standing and be mutually beneficial.

    I hope the backing of Equissage will mean we can retain our most promising youngsters for longer than we could previously. This will enable us to take them through to higher grades, which in turn will promote the Equissage brand to more people,” says Jack.

    Recent success for the Scottish team include a win in the Scottish puissance for Isobel with Simply Sarah, while Jack has qualified for the Newcomers at the Horse of the Year Show.
