Top Eventing Rider Amy Tryon Joins Team UlcerGard

Merial has announced that top eventing rider and 2006 World Equestrian Games Bronze Medalist, Amy Tryon will become the newest member of Team UlcerGard. Tryon will join other top equestrian athletes, including Darren Chiacchia, John Williams, and Marcia Kulak, in promoting UlcerGard--the only product proven to prevent stomach ulcers in horses.

"We are proud to have Amy Tryon join Team UlcerGard and help us in promoting equine ulcer awareness and prevention," said Jeannine Courser, product manager, Merial Equine Pharmaceuticals. "Amy will join other top eventers who have made it a priority to rely on UlcerGard to keep their horses healthy during stressful times."

"In the past I have had to treat my horse for ulcers and know the effects they have had on him," said Tryon. "As professional equestrians, we have to put the health of our horses first, which is why I sought out the opportunity to educate other riders on the product that now keeps my horses ulcer-free--UlcerGard. At my level of competition, I won't risk my horse not feeling at his best so if we're traveling and competing, UlcerGard is always part of our ride."

In 2004, Tryon was a member of the U.S. Eventing Team that took home the Bronze medal in Athens. Tryon was also member of the U.S. Team that won the Gold medal at the 2002 Eventing World Championships and a member of the 1999 Pan American Games team. In 2003, Tryon was awarded the United States Eventing Association Ironmaster Trophy for Courage and Fortitude.

As part of this partnership, Tryon will participate in various consumer events and promotions representing the UlcerGard brand, as well as display the UlcerGard logo on banners and various branded clothing at competitive events.
