Traverse City, MI - June 1, 2015 - Dechra Veterinary Products is proud to announce its support of the Great Lakes Equestrian  Festival in Traverse City this July. Dechra has sponsored Grand Prix at HITS Thermal in the past, and is looking forward to contributing further to the sport by joining with Stadium Jumping's debut of the all-new Great Lakes Equestrian Festival at Flintfields in Michigan.


The festival is set on 88 beautiful acres and showcases five world-class competition rings in addition to spacious schooling rings. The property features don't stop there as the park offers convenient on-site campgrounds, making for a truly unique attendee experience.


"Keeping horses sound and competing is what we strive for with our line of niche products," said Dechra equine marketing manager Shelly Derks. "Our partnership with Great Lakes Equestrian Festival will help us to expand our brand awareness and help riders, owners and trainers become aware of our products and what we can do for their horse."


"We're glad to welcome Dechra to our rapidly expanding family of sponsors," said Michael Morrissey, the President of Stadium Jumping, Inc. "They are a cutting-edge company, offering some great new products for equestrians and we're glad they've chosen Traverse City as one of their showcase events."


In just less than a decade in the U.S., Dechra Veterinary Products has emerged as a leader in equine medicine with a specialized range of approved products. In May of 2014, Dechra achieved FDA-approval of OSPHOS® (clodronate injection), the only intramuscular bisphosphonate for control of the clinical signs associated with navicular syndrome in horses. For more information on OSPHOS® please visit the website at: 


Dechra also has a forward-thinking approach in regenerative medicine with our well-known brands, Orthokine® vet irap (the original and proven irap) and Osteokine®, which is an easy-to-use platelet-rich processing device.


Dechra U.S. recently acquired the manufacturing facility and  assets to PSPC, Inc. including the PHYCOX® Joint Supplement, PHYCOX® EQ and PHYCOX® EQ MAX. The products contain the patented ingredient phycocyanin, which is a natural antioxidant that has powerful free-radical scavenging abilities to support the body against cellular damage and inflammation.

The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is the perfect venue to prepare for this year's Pan American Games, which will be held at the Caledon Equestrian Park in Palgrave, just outside of Toronto, Canada. Show jumping during the Pan-Am Games runs from July 17- 25. The close proximity (just 430 miles) makes Great Lakes Equestrian Festival a convenient half-day drive to the Pan-Am Games venue and provides three great weeks prep time in Michigan's very similar climate. Add to that world-class course designers, including Michele Vaillancourt, Leopoldo Palacios, Bernardo Costa Cabral and Keith Bollotte, on hand to build thoughtful, innovative and challenging tracks makes Great Lakes Equestrian Festival the ideal summer competition to get ready to go for the Gold.


Stall reservations are on a first-come-first-serve basis until sold out. Reservation forms can be found at:
