- PROFESSION: Dressage Rider
I have previously ridden to Intermediate (2*) level eventing and showjumped to 1.30m but following a head injury, made the decision to concentrate on dressage. I am currently competing at Level 5 and Level 3 on two horses I have taken through the grades from green broken.My favourite 3 product have to be: • Propell Plus – I love the fact that after 4 days of competing, travelling and being in a yard, that my horses are still perky and have the energy required to perform. So often you see horses becoming flat and dull on the second day of competition, so it feels so satisfying knowing that my horses are getting the right ingredients in their feed to keep them going. • So-Kalm – This is an absolute must have, one of my horses can get hot and tense when she is out competing, there is a noticeable difference when she has had a dose of the So-Kalm – it keeps her level headed and responsive without getting dull. • Cortaflex Solution – As the horses go up the grades, we are asking for more collection and suppleness with the lateral work, this means that the joints need to be in top condition to allow the horses to perform to the best of their abilities. Since having the horses on Cortaflex Solution, I have found them both to find the lateral movement a lot easier and going in to summer, it will mean that they won’t feel the hard ground which is a huge consideration as it gets so hot and dry at home!
