World Championships: Here come the Hay Steamers!

By Kim Miller  | Equestrian Writer

The ECCO FEI World Championships begin in Herning, Denmark Saturday August 6 and Haygain will be well represented by official members of our #SteamTeam. This edition of the World Championships features competition in dressage and vaulting, August 6-10, and jumping and para dressage August 10-14.


The Steam Teamers contesting these Games carry the flags of 12 different countries yet galloped to Denmark on the common ground of prioritizing their horses’ health above all else. That’s why they’ve come to rely on Haygain High Temperature Steamed Hay as an everyday part of their horse’s routine, whether on home turf or anywhere in the world. Ensuring consistently hygienic healthy hay is difficult to do when traveling the world and that’s a top reason these horsemen count on Haygain.


Haygain representation in Herning ranges from the U.S. Jumping Team fully comprised of devoted Hay Steamers to Ioli Mytilineou and L’Lartiste de Toxandra competing as an individual pair for Greece. Para-dressage competitors from Brazil, Great Britain and Canada complete a long list of those who won’t leave home without their Haygain Hay Steamer.


Teams from the United States, Great Britain and Germany won’t have to worry about getting their Haygains to Herning. The company is a proud corporate partner and official team supplier to these Federations. Haygain provides steamers at their training bases and to take to major international team competitions.


A visit with several of our Haygain World Championships horsemen reveals the wide range of reasons for steaming with Haygain. Here’s a few:

Charlotte Dujardin – British Dressage Team Member

"We like to keep things as simple and natural as possible. Feeding clean hay and having stables that provide cushion and comfort while reducing dust are great ways to accomplish that."

Scott Brash – British Jumping Team Member

“Haygain really helps get the dust particles out of hay and haylage and that helps us be at the forefront of doing everything we can do for our horses’ health.”

Cian O’Connor – Irish Jumping Team Member

“We started off using Haygain with one horse and now all horses are on Haygain, and we recommend it for all the horses we work with. It takes away all the bacteria, debris, and impurities in the hay. And the horse seem to love it, which is nice. All the horses at Karlswood and Coolmore Show jumping are on it. Certainly, it’s become very popular. People wouldn’t be using it if they didn’t think it was working.”
