Laine Ashker Slides Into Equiflexsleeve as Sponsored Rider
Providing support and compression for equine athlete’s legs has never been so easy!
May 26, 2015, Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA — Equiflexsleeve, the revolutionary product that replaces the need for traditional standing wraps, today made the exciting announcement that Laine Ashker is joining the ranks of Equiflexsleeve sponsored riders.
With a long and successful eventing career under her belt, Laine Ashker has previously represented the United States in the Junior Olympics, and is a seasoned four star level competitor. Together with her 16 year old off the track Thoroughbred Anthony Patch, affectionately known as Al, Laine has competed at Rolex CCI**** four times. Most recently, the pair brought home the title of national Advanced Champions at the AECs in 2013, and reserve Advanced national champions in 2012 and 2014. With their sights set on this year’s Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event, Equiflexsleeve will provide vital support for Al’s legs in between events.
“Equiflexsleeves not only aid my horses in support and compression, they give me the peace of mind that bandaging sometimes takes away,” said Laine Ashker, “Equiflexsleeves are a great way to offer your horse support in between rides or protection when they’re cooped up in a stall overnight!”
Laine’s decision to join the Equiflexsleeve team as an endorsing rider is a move that will benefit her horses’ overall performance and aid in her training program. “Any product that enhances my horses’ performance in and out of the show ring is important to my program.”
Equiflexsleeves are safe and easy to use, and an advantageous time-saver for eventers during busy competitions. In addition to competition horses, Equiflexsleeve helps pleasure horses, older equines, and those recovering from injury and can take the place of traditional standing wraps. Aiding in the reduction of joint, tendon, and ligament swelling as well as issues such as wind puffs, Equiflexsleeves are capable of providing vital support and comfort for a horse’s legs.
Equiflexsleeve takes the place of traditional standing wraps and can be worn for longer periods of time than traditional wraps. Unlike traditional wraps, the sleeve allows heat to dissipate, does not immobilize the joints, and remains in position as swelling decreases. Available in 7 different sizes fitting both front and hind legs, riders can choose between 8 eye-catching colors.

Created in early 2009 by Mary Leibold, Equiflexsleeve takes the place of traditional standing wraps and can be worn for longer periods of time than traditional wraps. Unlike traditional wraps, the sleeve allows heat to dissipate, does not immobilize the joints and remains in position as swelling decreases. A proprietary blend of multi-tensioned fibers infused with antimicrobial technology, the Equiflexsleeve acts as a compression sleeve/therapeutic joint support for horses. Made in the USA, Equiflexsleeves are available at selected retailers in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
