Balls of Steel — it’s a company that manufactures whiskey and spirit chillers, with a portion of profits benefitting cancer research. And Balls of Steel is also the newest sponsor of the U.S. World Equestrian Games team.

It all started when EN Blogger Contest finalist Wendy Angel suggested in her Round 2 entry that the U.S. WEG team should be sponsored by the company due to the steely nature one’s balls must have to compete at such a high level.

Balls of Steel saw her shout out here on EN and left this comment:

I pitched the idea of Balls of Steel signing on as a sponsor of the U.S. WEG team, and they LOVED it.

The six pairs of balls are due to be delivered today. I’ll be bringing the balls to Great Meadows this weekend to hand deliver them to the six members of the squad: Buck Davidson, Phillip Dutton, Sinead Halpin, Boyd Martin, Kim Severson and Lynn Symansky.

So there you have it, EN. Thanks to the power of the Internet, Balls of Steel is the newest sponsor of the U.S. WEG team.

Now it’s your turn to get involved. Go show Balls of Steel some love by checking out their products here and placing an order. It’s a pretty cool company — you can read more about their work to raise testicular cancer awareness here.

Thank you, Wendy, for dreaming up the idea, and thank you, Balls of Steel, for being awesome.

Go Eventing.
