Full time Dressage Rider from Feilding

Cortaflex HA solution for Joints is my favourite product from the range. I have used this for about 4 yrs now. I did extensive research to find the best joint supplement for my horses – I actually wanted a product that worked and had been tested and shown to work. I like that both the Chondroitin and Glucosamine are in Cortaflex are more absorbable through the cell walls due to the micro size. I use Cortaflex solution on all my ridden horses from 4yr olds up to my Grand Prix horse.

I also use Pro-fenn Powder during the completion season to complement the Cortaflex® solution. I bel...

Show Hunting
Show Hunter from Rotorua

Mostly recognized in the Show Hunter ring, in the past years I’ve experienced great success in the equestrian world. Last season in the show jumping circuit, I competed in the five-year-old series early in the season, and later placed my focus on training an ex-racehorse, Abaddon. My thoroughbred progressed over the season, and this season I’m hoping to get him up to Junior Rider level. This season I will resume riding Airborne MVNZ in the Junior rider series, and potentially reach the Young Rider series. My proudest achievement to date would be winning the ‘Junior Show Hunter of the ...
