West Palm Beach, FL (January 26, 2010) Tina Konyot, and her Danish stallion
Calecto V, rode away the winners of the Open Grand Prix class at the Gold
Coast Dressage Association Opener CDI at the Jim Brandon Equestrian
Center. Draper Equine Therapy, makers of therapeutic horse and rider
products featuring the innovative smart fiber textile Celliant/Holofiber,
sponsored Konyots class and awarded her with a Draper Saddle Pad.
Konyot teaches and trains at her farm in North Stonington, Connecticut and
at her parents farm in Stuart, Florida. She believes Calecto has the quality
to be a spectacular contender for the 2010 World Equestrian Games.
Konyot said she rode conservatively in the Grand Prix because it is still
early in the year. Im very happy with our ride and it was a good class. I am
much appreciative that Draper sponsored the class and I look forward to
trying their saddle pad.
Konyot is accustomed to being in the winners circle, and her accomplishments
include being short-listed for the 2000 Sydney Olympic Trials and the 2004
Athens Olympic Trials. We are really excited that Tina won this class as she
had a very impressive ride. We foresee a great year ahead for the pair, said
Kat Wojtylak, Product Manager of Draper Equine Therapy. The Gold Coast
Dressage Association Opener was a very exciting show and it was a great
start to the season ahead. South Florida is the place to be during the
winter months with national and international talents getting in top form
for the WEG. Draper is thrilled to be supporting the amazing talents that
attend these shows and cant wait to see how the rest of the season goes.
Draper Equine Therapy produces products for horses including saddle pads,
sheets, blankets, bandages and wraps. Products for riders include T-shirts,

products are made of Celliant/Holofiber which has been proven to help reduce
pain, increase oxygen levels and help balance overall body temperature,
Wojtylak said. These inorganic natural minerals work with the energy
released from the body and are designed to recycle this energy back to the
body to improve health and overall well being of the wearer.
