So often you see horses becoming flat and dull on the second day of competition, so it feels so satisfying knowing th...

Show Jumper
29yo Show Jumper & Dressage Rider from Fielding

Kate is a 29 year old amateur rider from Palmerston North and competes mainly in showhunter and dressage.
After having to retire a competition horse several years ago due to the effects of arthritis, I came across the Equine America NZ range of products and have been a convert ever since, ensuring Cortaflex HA is always in their feed to help prevent the early onset of joint deterioration from daily wear and tear. I also love the Ventilator powder which is a natural formula to aid the respiratory system and I’ve found particularly helpful in the dry, dusty summer environment as well ...
