EquiFit, Inc. Proud to Sponsor New Rider John French of California

Boston, MA – March 9, 2007 –EquiFit, Inc. is pleased to announce that top hunter rider John French of Redwood City, CA, is now an EquiFit, Inc. sponsored rider.

EquiFit, Inc.’s new line of silver-based products for equines, which include the AgSilver CleanBalm, CleanGel, CleanTalc and CleanWash, incorporate the same silver ion technology currently available in their SilverClene24 spray, which offers a non-toxic way to kill viruses, fungi and bacteria.

EquiFit Inc. also offers an extensive range of products including: the revolutionary T-Boot Series™ horse boots, T-Sport Wraps™, T-Form saddle pads, and the industry’s only riding posture correction garment, ShouldersBack™.

Originally from Maryland, French began riding at an early age with his mother, Jill French. After turning professional at 18-years-old, French found a job riding and training at a barn in California. It was the start of his business on the West Coast, where he has been based since 1987. French now trains out of three different locations in California at his Waldenbrook Farm Inc. In 2000, French won the World Championship Hunter Rider Professional title and repeated that performance in 2006.

While French is known as a top hunter rider, he has also represented the United States in international show jumping competition, most notably at the Royal International Horse Show in Hickstead, England, and the Dublin Horse Show in Ireland. On Millennium, he competed in the 2003 World Cup Jumping Finals and was the highest ranked rider from the West Coast in the 2004 trials for the Athens Olympic Games, where he was named the second alternate.

After a stellar year in 2006, French was a United States Equestrian Federation Equestrian of Honor finalist and awarded the Emerson Burr Trophy. Not limited to the hunter-jumper world, French helped a friend and rode her horse to a national championship for the Arabian Horse Association. Currently, French has a large business of top hunters and clients and enjoys competing in the Young Jumper classes.

Prior to his sponsorship, French was not a stranger to the EquiFit, Inc. products. “I’ve always liked the T-Boots, and I had several clients that used the boots on their horses,” he explained. “I’m very excited that I can have them to use now! They’re easier and quicker to adjust than most horse boots.”

“I’m happy to be a part of EquiFit, Inc.,” he added. “I’m glad that they thought of me to sponsor. I want to use the products and be able to give suggestions to them. Now that we’re working together, perhaps I can help them come up with other ideas as well.”

EquiFit, Inc. president Alexandra Cherubini said of French, “You cannot find a more genuine horseman than John. He is the consummate professional, and I think he will be a huge asset in helping out business stay at the forefront of innovation.”

In addition to French, EquiFit, Inc. is proud to sponsor 2004 Athens Olympic gold medalist McLain Ward, Olympians Margie Engle, Michael Whitaker and Alison Firestone, as well as grand prix riders Aaron Vale, Michael Morrissey, Joie Gatlin, Callan Solem, Jimmy Torano, Christine McCrea, Molly Ashe, Mandy Porter, Peter Breakwell, Angela Covert-Lawrence, top hunter riders Jennifer Alfano and Peter Pletcher, Irish show jumper Conor Swail, Olympic Three-Day event rider Darren Chiacchia and Australian Three-Day event rider Christine Bates.
