Tampa, FL – March 16, 2012 – The 2012 Tampa Equestrian Series is pleased to announce that it has named EquiFit, inc the Official Horse Boot & Legware Sponsor of the two-week horse show. A genuine commitment to horses and riders drives EquiFit to seek new and better ways to help them perform, recover, be comfortable and succeed at all levels. EquiFit will also be the title sponsor of the $32,000 EquiFit Tampa Bay Welcome Stake CSI during the Tampa Bay Classic. The Tampa Equestrian Series is scheduled for March 28 - April 7, 2012, at the Bob Thomas Equestrian Center at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, FL.

Originally developed for astronaut seating, and used today in hospitals, wheelchairs and other applications where minimizing pressure points is critical, EquiFit’s T-Foam is a shock-absorbing material that conforms to each horse’s body for a custom fit, every time with 100% recovery for the next use. Featured in many of EquiFit’s high performance products, this advanced, neoprene-free technology absorbs 97% of shock and vibration under impact.

"EquiFit is excited to once again sponsor the Tampa Equestrian Series and the Gene Mische American Invitational,” noted EquiFit President Alexandra Cherubini. “The American Invitational features the nation's best riders who share our passion for horses and our commitment to success, we are thrilled to support their endeavors."

The Tampa Equestrian Series will kick-off its two weeks of competition with the Tampa Bay Classic CSI-W, which is scheduled for March 28-April 1, 2012 and features the $50,000 FEI World Cup Qualifier CSI 2*-W Grand Prix of Tampa. Another highlight event will be the $32,000 EquiFit Tampa Bay Welcome Stake CSI, which is scheduled for Friday, March 30, 2012. It will be followed by the Tournament of Champions, which will be held April 3-7, 2012, and includes the $10,000 CWD American Invitational Stake Class.

The 40th Annual $200,000 Gene Mische American Invitational, presented by G&C Farm, will be the highlight event on the final day of competition, April 7, 2012 at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. The world's top horses and riders will gather to compete under the lights during one of the premier show jumping events in the United States.
