Aussie Super-Suit Up For Highest Equestrian Award

March 08, 2013 By: janwest Category: What's Happenin'

Hidez compression suits literally burst through the equestrian door mid last year, debuting on local superstar thoroughbred sprinter, Black Caviar ahead of her much anticipated departure to Royal Ascot.


The cleverly produced compression suit Hidez engineered has ‘wowed’ the rest of the world with its optimal and positive results. So much so, they have been selected for the impressive nomination in Health and Care of the innovation awards at the 2013 Equitana in Germany later this month.


Hidez designer and founder, Matt Spice says “For myself and business partner Elwyn McCabe and family, also of Australia, this is such an honor and testament to all the hard work we have done both in time and money to get a suit to commercial sale for horses”. Matt and company CEO Elwyn have spent the past five years using revolutionary technology to produce the Hidez suit, designed to create a controlled graduated compression to an animal’s body to assist circulation, travelling, recovery and rehabilitation.

Very positive results and testimonials are coming in from all angles of the globe as Hidez ‘suits-up’ many of the world’s top horses in various disciplines. Today, the hard-work has paid off and the directors of Hidez are now proud nominees of this notable, international award as they prepare to attend what will be, a very exciting next chapter for Hidez in equestrian sport.


You can be sure we’ll be seeing many more horses not leaving home without their Hidez suit. Hidez is now available in over 30 countries and offers online purchase, for more information on the Hidez travel and recovery technology, visit www.hidez.com.au
