World's No. 1 Dressage Competitor Charlotte Dujardin Proud Member of the Centaur Team

Wellington, FL - July 24, 2015 - Centaur Heated Blanket Dryers are known across the U.K. as a must have for any equine facility. Top barns swear by the towel-rail-like technology, calling Centaur products "a must-have" for the rainy and winter seasons. Now, the internationally acclaimed blanket and boot dryers will be available for equestrian enthusiasts across the United States. 

As top competitors know, the bond between horse and rider is absolutely essential to the sport of dressage. And that's why the FEI Individual Dressage No. 1 ranked athlete Charlotte Dujardin relies on Centaur to keep her partner Valegro warm, happy, and healthy.
"They (Centaur) are a lovely team and I have wanted to work with them since I tried one of the dryers," said Dujardin. "They dry soaking wet rugs in just a few hours ­- which is so useful for any of us! It's also a great convenience as it saves time and cuts out waiting for days at a time for rugs to dry in cold and wet weather."
Perfect for warming a blanket on chilly mornings, easing sore muscles, and post - workout cool downs, Centaur Dryers ensure that horses will never have to wear a wet blanket again. The product completely dries wet blankets in just a few hours, making it a must have for any well-equipped tack room.
"I'm about to get a second of these rug dryers," Dujardin said. "Talk about planning ahead for winter already!"

Dujardin and Valegro won both the team and individual gold medals in the 2012 Olympics, setting a new Olympic Record and earning Britain's first medal in dressage. And since then, their success has only continued to grow. In 2014 Dujardin won both the Individual World Champion Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Fresstyle at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games. Also in 2014, she broke her own world record for the Grand Prix Freestyle at Olympia, with a score of 94.3%. And 2015, she and Valegro won the World Cup in Dressage.
Dujardin is not the only top international equestrian athlete to join the Centaur team as an Ambassador. Olympic Gold Medalist and Longines No. 1 ranked jumper Scott Brash, Olympian Sam Griffiths, and Olympic Silver and Bronze Medalist William Fox-Pitt all use and endorse Centaur products.
Regular clothes dryers are not designed for horse blankets, and can easily damage the waterproof coatings. Centaur dryers warm blankets from the inside out, preserving the life of often expensive blankets using a controlled, gentle system.
Centaur understands the unique needs of the horse community, and also offers a gentle, thermostatically controlled boot dryer. Like the blanket dryer, the Centaur boot dryer is specifically manufactured to maintain the shape and prolong the life of footwear and other horse-specific equipment.
