Kildare, Ireland – July 16, 2020 – Equilume, the world leader in the research and development of light therapy solutions for the global horse industry, announced two new partnerships with award-winning International Eventing riders, Phillip Dutton of the United States and Sam Watson of Ireland. With these partnerships, Dutton and Watson have installed the Equilume Stable Light System at their respective home stables and use the Equilume Cashel Light Masks on their horses while traveling to competitions throughout the year.

Headquartered in County Kildare, Ireland, Equilume designs and manufactures lighting solutions to harness the benefits of natural daylight for stabled horses and permit continued exposure to optimum lighting while horses travel or are at pasture. The Equilume Stable Light provides horses with biologically effective light that maximizes the health, performance and breeding efficiency for stabled horses. The Equilume Cashel Light Mask is an individual headpiece for horses that provides timed, low-level blue light to a single eye throughout the day to ensure optimum health, performance and coat condition when they are stabled, traveling or away at competition.

Three-time Olympic medallist, Phillip Dutton, was named the number one FEI World Eventing Rider in 2005. He represented his native country, Australia, in three Olympics, winning team gold in Atlanta, and four World Championships before becoming an American citizen in 2006. Riding for the USA, Dutton was a member of the gold medal team and individual silver medallist at the Pan-American Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2007 and has been on the United States Olympic eventing team at Beijing, London and Rio, winning individual bronze on imported Irish Sport Horse ‘Mighty Nice’ in Rio in 2016.

“I had read about the Equilume light concept and the theory of improving a horse’s trainability, attitude, and healing improvements, so I decided to try one of their Cashel Light Masks. The horse I selected was a very talented but somewhat difficult horse to train on a daily basis. I was told it would take about six weeks of use with the Cashel mask to see the full benefits on the horse,” said Dutton. “After just three weeks, I saw a remarkable improvement in the horse’s attitude and willingness to enjoy his work. The logic of more light for a stabled horse makes sense to me, and I was able to see the results. I am excited about what benefits this will have for all my horses – so we are in the process of installing the Equilume Stable Lights throughout our barn
