Haygain USA adds California sales consultant.

Oct. 16, 2018: Kaitlyn Zaleski joins the Haygain USA sales team to cover all of California. One-on-one consultations, group, club and barn demos and free two-week trials of the Haygain Hay Steamer are among her priorities in the new position. Comfortstall® therapeutic sealed orthopedic flooring and the Forager Slow Feeder are among the company’s horse health products.


Kaitlyn grew up in New Jersey and has been riding horses since she was 6. She rode primarily on the local hunter/jumper circuit and has always spent as much time at the barn as possible. Today she lives in California’s Central Valley with her fiancé, who is a dairy veterinarian, along with their dog and four horses.


Deciding to turn her passion for horses into a career, Kaitlyn pursued a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Animal Science at the Pennsylvania State University where she studied equine management, nutrition and reproduction. Upon graduation, she interned at a large reining facility in Texas before pursuing her first full time role at SmartPak, the nation’s largest online retailer and a longtime dealer of Haygain products. She was a familiar face with SmartPak’s West Coast mobile unit when it first launched.


Kaitlyn represented Haygain USA at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, North Carolina, where the company provided complementary hay steamers to approximately 35 teams from all over the world. On the home front, she recently hosted an exclusive demo event with Cindy Forrest Performance Horses at Rancho Sierra Vista in San Juan Capistrano. All horse owners at the facility were invited to enjoy pizza and learn about steaming hay and ComfortStall equine flooring. A few of the horses even got to enjoy the experience of standing on ComfortStall.

The Las Vegas National Horse Show is Kaitlyn and Haygain USA’s next tour stop, Nov. 14-18.
