- PROFESSION: Eventing Rider
I am a 20 year old Event rider based in Whangarei, I am currently competing my main mount at 1* level and we will be stepping up to 2* in the New Year and have 2 young horses that I will be producing up the levels over the next few seasons.
My favourite products are Cortaflex HA and Black draw poultice.
All my horses are on Cortaflex HA, as my main horse is in his older years I know it is extremely important to preserve his joints to insure a long sound career as well as the young horses having the best supplements in their diets to ensure healthy joints especially when the ground is rock hard over summer.
I will not go another winter without having Black Draw in my stables, one of my horses had a terrible case of mud fever that I could not clear up until I tried black draw. I noticed a massive change after 4 days of using! It has also worked miracles over night on a horse who trotted up visibly lame the day before a show. Thinking there was no chance this horse would be able to compete I thought I would try the poultice and see if it made much of a difference, I wrapped his hoof in a black draw poultice and trotted up sound the next morning. I could not believe it!
I love the quality of the Cortaflex range and will never use anything else!
