Equine Quality Alliance Guidance Helps Member Develop Hi-Tech Sheets And Coolers

WARE, MASSACHUSETTS - The members of the Equine Quality Alliance (EQA) are committed to offering the best quality products in the marketplace with unparalleled customer service. So, when developing a new line of high-performance coolers and sheets, Tally Ho Products, creators of custom equestrian bags and tack cases, turned to their fellow EQA members to ensure their line would once again achieve quality and performance excellence. "Among the EQA members are some of the best minds in the equine industry," said Tally Ho president Ellen Endter. "We could not have asked for a better source to help us assimilate these new products into our current lines --- especially since we wanted to diversify with something slightly 'out of the box.'"

It all started with in-depth investigation. "With guidance from our colleagues, we we able to research the best value-added, high-performance fabrics from companies in the U.S. and worldwide," said Endter. "What we found was a diverse number of options typically used for humans, but we felt many would fit perfectly for our equestrian partners to help them look, feel, and perform at their best." And, Tally Ho's commitment to delivering quality customized products would enable them to blend these high-tech components with their style of customized product manufacturing. The Tally Ho line of sheets and blankets, called "Clever Fox", was born, and a selection of fabrics was outlined:

First is a quick-wicking cooler featuring Woolrich(R) wool/acrylic blend in a variety of solid colors and a rich plaid---an effective natural fiber for cooling out a sweaty horse.

The second features a Dralon(R) and cotton blend plush fabric, Equisweat(R). This woven fabric is designed to wick away moisture and insulate the horse. There is no static build-up. Dirt, hair and hay sheds off the fabric, keeping it clean and looking great. Simply wash and dry. And, this fabric will last much longer than more typical knit polyester fleece.

Third, for hot weather cooling, Clever Fox offers a diamond knit with Wick 'N Dry(TM) finish to move moisture away from a sweaty horse and quickly cool them out. This fabric is Scotchgard(TM) protected for easy stain removal while keeping the fabric soft and breathable.

Last but certainly not least, is a holofiber knit cooler that has cutting-edge "nanotechnology" whereby the energy level of the horse is re-invigorated through millions of microscopic lenses that are actually part of the yarn, itself. The lenses modify the spectrum of light to "bounce back" energy given off by the horse back to the horse. This increases oxygenation and decreases recovery time after the horse has been exercised or worked.

"These are all superior products in and of themselves," says Endter, "but our ability to enhance them through customization, using our broad variety of color, trimmings, and embroidery, is our niche. Innovation, quality, and style. Working with the EQA, our pursuit of making this idea a reality is on track. And it supports our membership's mission to deliver innovative products that meet the array of demands and problems faced by horse and rider."

The seven members of the Equine Quality Alliance are each recognized leaders in the equine industry, particularly for their original concepts and products that have made a difference to horses and their owners across the country. Leather Therapy, Healing Tree, Ice Horse, Equissentials, Grand Meadows, Tally Ho Products and EasyCare provide products and services that are unsurpassed for quality and performance.
