Dover Saddlery® Launches the New Rider Fly Shield with Insect Shield®

LITTLETON, MA – April 8, 2020. Dover Saddlery, the leading omni-channel retailer of equestrian products, is pleased to introduce the new Rider Fly Shield, a lightweight, stretch-mesh jacket treated with Insect Shield technology to repel biting and nuisance insects. It will allow equestrians to enjoy riding and other outdoor activities and avoid being bitten by insects.
Proven and registered with the EPA to repel mosquitoes, ticks, ants, flies, chiggers and midges (no-see-ums), the Insect Shield fabric treatment binds a proprietary permethrin formula tightly to fabric fibers. It produces an effective, odorless insect barrier that lasts through 70 washes—the expected lifetime of a garment. Insect Shield technology is the result of years of research and field study. Numerous studies have confirmed the effectiveness of permethrin-treated clothing as an insect repellent.
The Rider Fly Shield has thumbhole sleeves that extend coverage over much of the hands, a hood to protect the head and back of neck and a zip front to allow easy on and off. The streamlined cut has a bulk-free feel, while the mesh delivers ample stretch for freedom of movement and excellent breathability to keep the rider cool.
“This is one of the most exciting products I’ve helped develop,” says Kara Judge, senior merchant at Dover Saddlery. “As a horse owner and rider, it’s my dream layer for bug season. I’ll wear it whenever I ride outside, and I’m sure it will make hand grazing my horses more enjoyable.”

Dover Saddlery® Introduces Premium InDulge™ Collection Bridles and Halters

LITTLETON, MA – June 11, 2018. Dover Saddlery Inc., the leading multichannel retailer of equestrian products, is pleased to announce the release of its new InDulge™ Collection bridles and halters featuring exclusive, high-tech Flex-Cushion™ technology. Innovative Flex-Cushion absorbs shock and distributes pressure to ensure horse comfort at an unprecedented level. All items are crafted from premium quality supple leather with extra-fine, distinctive stitching.

Tested in the harsh conditions of New England winters, Flex-Cushion is a soft and resilient material that retains its performance despite weather conditions. It is hidden inside strategic locations of each halter and bridle to pressure and offer cushioning where it is needed most. In halters, Flex-Cushion is located within the crowns and nosepieces. In bridles for hunters, jumpers, eventing and dressage, it is located in the crownpieces and, depending on the style of the bridle, may also be found in a noseband, chin pad, or, in the case of the Figure 8, in cheek paddles and center nosepiece.

“We’re proud to offer this new line of tack to riders because we feel it is the next generation of horse comfort,” commented Brad Wolansky, chief executive officer. “A lot of thought went into the designs. We also wanted to present the innovation in exceptional, timeless quality leather, and at the best value we could offer.”

The InDulge Collection can be found online at DoverSaddlery.com, in 34 retail stores nationwide and in Dover Saddlery catalogs starting this summer.
