Hygain and Equestrian Victoria Announce a New Partnership

Hygain Feeds Ltd, Australian producers of outstanding, high-quality equine feeds and supplements, and Equestrian Victoria, have announced a new sponsorship that sees the HYGAIN® name associated across the disciplines of Dressage and Interschool for the 2021-2022 season.

The partnership provides our Dressage community with significant sponsorship of three Dressage Victoria Squads - High Performance, Development and Young Rider Dressage Squads & Development Program.  

Equestrian Victoria's partnership with Hygain includes naming rights to this weekend's HYGAIN® Amateur Owner Rider Nationals at Boneo Park Equestrian Centre and the HYGAIN® Victorian Dressage Festival at Werribee Park National Equestrian Centre on the 9 – 12 December. 

In January, HYGAIN® will partner as a Champion Level sponsor for the Australian Youth Dressage Championships.

At the Interschool State Championships in April 2022, the HYGAIN® partnership will provide prizes and sponsorship for Dressage competitors.   

Kevin Bareira, CEO Hygain Group, said “Hygain is devoted to improving the health, wellbeing, and performance of horses. Proudly Australian made and owned, we invest in research & development, quality assurance and manufacturing technologies to enable us to provide horses with leading edge nutrition across the globe. Our industry leading brands including Hygain and Mitavite are renowned for delivering high quality targeted and balanced nutrition solutions that help to deliver quality performances, gleaming condition, and balanced temperaments.

We have been fuelling champions for over 35 years, including Melbourne Cup winners, Olympic medallists and championship winners across all disciplines and our commitment to horses naturally extends into the broader equestrian community. This year, we are thrilled to support the various squads and events through EV and would like to wish every rider success. And by success, we don’t just mean winning a blue ribbon. At Hygain, as passionate riders ourselves, we understand that it’s all about the amazing bond that riders have with their horse, to do their best on the day and to enjoy achieving personal goals with their horse.”

"Hygain has long been associated with providing quality feed for many of our members. We are delighted to strengthen that association with this partnership.” said Christie Freeman, Chair of Equestrian Victoria.

"Across our sports, this partnership contributes to the training and development opportunities from our grass-roots riders for Dressage and Eventing to our Dressage High-Performance Squad members. It will provide incentive and reward in what has been a particularly tough 18 months."
