Showjumping rider Lauren Crooks filled out an incident report after her husband and business partner James Brennan suffered a riding accident at a ShowPlus®-protected horse show. "We put so much time, money, effort, everything into this sport and then accidents do happen,” she said. “It’s pretty great that there’s something that advocates for the health of the horse and rider. I think it’s really important that people know about ShowPlus®, because it is really, truly a godsend for us to have.”
Chief Customer Officer Joe Norick commented, “We are thrilled to be offering this protection for all of our customers, including the grooms who are an integral part of our community. We understand the risks in our sport, and we want everyone to enjoy their time at HITS Shows without worrying about additional expenses.”
ShowPlus CEO Ghen Sugimoto concluded, "The ShowPlus® team is excited to be able to extend ShowPlus® benefits and protection at HITS Horse Shows to competitors, horses and now for the first time, grooms! Working with HITS Horse Shows to off this exciting new program is a great step forward in protecting the entire equestrian community."
