Born into a well-known equestrian family, William Fox-Pitt began riding at age four, and successfully completed his first event at the age of 15. From this event spawned a phenomenal eventing career, which includes holding the current record for the most wins at the Burleigh Horse Trials (six) and having represented Great Britain at the Olympics four times. William credits Activo-Med with helping to keep his horses in peak condition:
“Having used the Activo-Med Combi System for over two years now I can honestly say it’s worth the investment 10 times over! Whilst the Activo-Med systems are excellent for rehabilitation, I use the pulsed electromagnetic and massage rug on all the horses both before they are worked to loosen and relax their muscles and after to aid the recovery process. The magnetic element of the system is particularly effective and the Combi Pro has become a very important part of our daily routine for optimising each horse’s performance. The systems are easy to use, breathable, lightweight and horse-friendly.”
