Peter Pletcher Joins New Sponsored Hunter Riders at EquiFit, Inc.

Boston, MA – February 14, 2007 –EquiFit, Inc. is pleased to announce that top hunter rider Peter Pletcher of Magnolia, TX, 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 Houston, TX, Pletcher began riding when he was 12 years old. In his junior years, he trained with Jimmy Lee, among others, and he rode as an amateur with Debbie Stephens, Bernie Traurig and Billy Glass. Pletcher made the decision to become a professional and opened his own PJP Farm in Magnolia, TX, in 1987.

Pletcher has won hunter championships at every major horse show in the country, including the Devon Horse Show and the circuit of indoor final shows. In the jumpers, he piloted Uncle Sam to the win in the President’s Cup Grand Prix in 1991 at the Washington International Horse Show, and he has represented the United States Equestrian Team in international competition.

In 2001, he rode Geste to a perfect score of 100 in a hunter classic. Pletcher won the World Championship Hunter Rider title in 2002 and 2004. He was also honored with the Emerson Burr Trophy from USA Equestrian and was named The Chronicle of the Horse Professional Rider of the Year in 2002.

“I think that EquiFit, Inc. has fantastic products,” Pletcher said. “I love the T-Boots. As soon as we got them, they replaced the polo wraps right off the bat. We’ve been using them every day.”

EquiFit, Inc. president Alexandra Cherubini noted, “Peter has such vast experience in this industry. Not only has he ridden internationally, but he is one of the best hunter riders in the country. We are so excited to work with him.”

In addition to Pletcher, 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 John French, Irish show jumper Conor Swail, Olympic Three-Day event rider Darren Chiacchia and Australian Three-Day event rider Christine Bates.
