Marcus Fyffe Dressage Announces Exciting New Partnership  with 
KEP Italia
Wellington, Fla. - Sept. 26, 2018 - Olympian David Marcus and international Grand Prix athlete Nicholas Fyffe of Marcus Fyffe Dressage are thrilled to announce their new partnership with KEP Italia, producers of the finest Italian-made helmets in the equestrian industry.

Since their inception in 2007, KEP Italia has focused on producing the most safe and innovative helmets on the market. KEP Italia creates the most stunning and dynamic helmets in the world using only the best materials and technology available to give riders confidence in the saddle.

KEP Italia takes great pride in its "Made in Italy" label, sourcing all of its top-quality materials from its home country and constructing the helmets with the utmost care and attention to detail. Each helmet is traceable and subject to inspections by five different international safety certification bodies.

"We are proud to work with Marcus Fyffe Dressage as we share the same values,"  KEP Italia's founder, Lelia Polini explained. "The care for horses and personalized training plans for riders symbolize a constant search for the highest quality that matches our goal to give riders the safest helmet ever." 

"Their successes speak for themselves and we are proud that David, one of the most well-respected Olympic athletes in North America, and Nicholas, a very successful international athlete, has chosen to be protected by KEP Italia," Polini continued. "Their choice to wear KEP Italia confirms once again how the best riders and trainers choose our helmet to have the best safety while on horseback."

Marcus and Fyffe hold the equipment that they utilize for both themselves and their horses to the highest standard as they work towards excellence in and out of the show ring. Based year-round at Stillpoint Farm in Wellington, Florida, Marcus Fyffe Dressage trains many horses each day. Thus, durability, comfort and safety is paramount for the head protection they choose to wear from sunrise to sunset.

"We're thrilled to work with KEP Italia," Fyffe said. "Not only because of the beautiful Italian design of the helmets and the endless options to customize how they look, but because the KEP Italia helmets are the safest in the market. Style is important but safety is paramount."

"We're very excited to be adding KEP to our list of sponsors," Marcus continued. "We really look for the highest quality companies and brands to partner with, as well as the best products, and we really feel that KEP is just that."

"We have been riding in helmets exclusively on every horse for many years now" he said. "To add a helmet sponsor to our sponsorship list was a great next step for us. It is an important part of what we do and our business."

Polini launched the company with experienced collaborators, ready to bring more passion and innovation to the industry with their dynamic ideas and designs. Their unique approach to helmets has been well received in the equestrian world and helps them stand out from the competition.

"We worked in collaboration with companies in the sector for many years, but I felt the need to look further in terms of safety and style," Polini said. "We wanted to design something more innovative in order to offer the best to riders of all levels and disciplines. Safety, comfort, lightness and technical performance have always been our objectives."
