HORSEWARE Ireland won the SPOGA Top Innovation Award at the international equestrian trade fair in Cologne last week. Only five products are chosen for this award, out of a shortlist of the top 31 innovations worldwide. Horseware Ireland won this prestigious award for its innovative and sustainable Amigo Hero Revive Plus Turnout rug.

This rug gives their excess raw materials a purpose and reduces waste by taking any unused yarn in their turnout fabric production to create a unique patterned rug offering the same strength and reliability as the original Amigo Hero 900 range.

The outer fabric is made of unused endings of yarn spools, which is giving each rug an individual multi-colour look and a unique pattern. The Amigo Hero Revive Plus comes with all standard features the Amigo Hero 900 collection is known for.

Horseware Ireland’s CEO Mark Saunders said: “We’re delighted to be recognised for our commitment to sustainability and innovation. At Horseware Ireland, each new season we look to develop our products in a way that make life better, for horses, for riders and for the world. Winning the SPOGA Top Innovation Award for this eco-friendly turnout is a testament to the craft and care we put into every Horseware product. The SPOGA Innovations Awards recognize the best of the best and we’re extremely honoured to have won here today.”
