This is Double Vision, also known as Andee, who is Feedmark’s new Horse Of The Week. She is a 17-year-old, Thoroughbred cross Irish Draught, standing at 15.2hh. Her owner, Rebecca Cross, explains: “Come February, I will have owned Andee for 11 years. Together we do a bit of everything, she is a true all-rounder. Over the years we have participated in hunting, show jumping, cross country, One Day Events, showing, pleasure rides, beach rides, dressage, we have tried side saddle, and have represented our riding club at area qualifier events. She is kept at home now where I do not have a school, so all of our schooling is done out hacking.”
“I am very proud of the rosette collection that we have acquired over time. Back in 2013 we won our riding club points Championship which was a real achievement.”
“Having owned her since she was 6, Andee has had only one previous owner. She was very green when I bought her, having been broken at 4 and then not doing much at all. The first time I tried Andee I fell off her, as she displayed her impressive rodeo skills! I’m pleased to say that over the years our relationship has gone from strength to strength and she never fails to impress me, it’s easy to forget how far you actually progress. My plans for the future are for Andee to stay fit and sound and continue competing. I would also like to carry on representing the riding club in area events.”
“Andee lives out 24/7 with her pony companion. Due to her EMS she has to be managed very carefully. She’s a tough old thing and I’ve been very lucky to have few problems in the time that I have owned her. She is also your typical sensible but unaffectionate, moody mare but I wouldn’t be without her. She looks after her riders whether it’s a show judge, or my niece on a lead rein who has learning disabilities.”
“Having been a long term user of Feedmark’s Clarity
supplement for my pony, I felt confident that starting my mare on ExtraFlex HA with Rosehips would be money well spent. Quite simply in 11 years, of owning my horse we have never placed higher than 5th in a dressage competition. Since feeding her ExtraFlex HA with Rosehips in the summer to help support her mobility we have been out and won three dressage classes! We’ve been scoring 7’s and 8’s which is fantastic, not only can I feel a difference but clearly it can be seen as well! Talk about coming back with a bang! A great supplement which is now a permanent fixture of my feed room shelf. It’s always great to find a supplement that works rather than waste hard earned money on no result. Another bonus is the free shipping and regular offers Feedmark have, it really does all help when you have an expensive animal to keep!”
“I also feed Andee the Clarity, having seen first-hand the amazing results on my pony, I started to feed it to her as standard to help keep her airways in tip top condition. I’m a firm believer that the respiratory system must stay healthy, otherwise it can cause serious performance issues. Thanks to Feedmark, Andee is in perfect condition, so any performance issues are down to myself!”
