As the famous Rolex Three Day Eventing competition gallops to its final day, three of RevitaVet’s sponsored riders have earned their way into the first and fourth place positions. As the excitement climbs to fevered heights, we thought it might be nice to share more about these riders.
Allison Springer of Virginia is currently in first place after the dressage phase of the competition aboard her horse Arthur.
Allison began riding at the early age of six.

In order to get his daughter to quit sucking her thumb, Allison’s father decided to bribe her. She was at an age where playing with Barbie dolls was a favorite past time, and he thought the newest Barbie would be an easy enticement. It had been made clear, by the family dentist, that if she didn’t stop sucking her thumb, her chances of having perfect teeth would vanish. Little did her father know that Allison had missed the bus and gone home with a friend after school and groomed her friend’s pony that day. She had fallen in love, so when her father told her he would give her anything she wanted as long as she stopped and never sucked her thumb again, the words, “I want a pony,” quickly toppled, without hesitation, out of her mouth. The rest is history.
Allison Springer has continually finished in the top ten on the Leading Rider board for The United States Eventing Association, and has been named multiple times to the United States Equestrian Team’s High Performance Training List. A veteran four-star event rider, trainer, and coach, Allison aspires to represent the United States in Olympic and International competition.

In 2010 Allison was the reserve rider for the US Three Day Eventing Team at the World Equestrian Games. Allison actively competes across the country and internationally, trains and shows horses for clients, and teaches professional and amateur riders.
In addition, here is a short list of some of her other achievements:
Named as an alternate to the 2012 Olympic Team
Burghley CCI4* 6th Place 2012
Top Placing American Rolex Kentucky 4* 2012
2nd Place Rolex Kentucky 4* Event 2012 (Arthur)
Allison’s horsemanship is paramount: her commitment to the well being of the horse yields a system that balances competitive edge with long-term stability in the sport. Allison’s commitment to the sport of Eventing is impressive as well. She is a founding member and sits on the Executive Board of the Professional Riders Organization – a group committed to serving the interests and concerns of professional event riders competing at the highest levels of the sport (www.professionalriders.org). Allison is also a member of the USEA’s Board of Governors and is active in The Professional Horseman’s Council. Allison is a certified ICP Level 4 instructor, coach of the Haitian National Three Day Event Team and a graduate of Bowdoin College in 1997.

“The RevitaVet system has been an easy and welcome addition to my program. I love RevitaVet because it has been great for both preventative maintenance and rehabilitation on my equine partners. I have seen noticeable improvement in my horses since I started using this system!”

Here is what he has to say about the RevitaVet system:

“I find the RevitaVet Therapy System to be very effective and easy to use. I have used the RevitaVet system on my horses who are muscle sore after hard work and on a variety of cuts and abrasions. For muscles, it helps them loosen up quicker and for cuts it decreases healing time. It is an essential piece of equipment in my barn and helps me maintain happy top level competition horses.”
