Meet Coby, Feedmark’s new Horse Of The Week. Standing at 14.2hh, he is a 10-year-old Cob cross Trotter. Holly Coulton has owned Coby for six years, and explains: “We have done a bit of everything in our 6 years. In the past we have enjoyed local shows, and he has taken a very good friend of mine to her first ever show and to pony club camp. Now we have a lesson once a week, we enjoy schooling and we like to hack out as much as we can. We are very lucky to have the beach on our doorstep, so we very often go there too.”
“I bought Coby as a newly broken 4-year-old. The first few years were not much fun; Coby was very unpredictable, and I found him hard to manage both on the ground and when ridden. He liked to over react in situations, for instance if a bird tweeted he would be half a mile down the road and I’d be on the floor! He was just very on edge. A friend of mine has a hot headed warm blood whom she has on Steady-Up Advance, and suggested I try feeding it to Coby! I was happy to try anything so I went ahead and ordered it that day. It came the next day so I began feeding it to him.”
“Within a couple of weeks of feeding it, I found Coby much more manageable. It was perfect for what we wanted as it seemed to take the edge off without taking away the energy, and it meant that I could do the things that I wanted to do. I’ve kept him on it ever since. However, I did actually take him off of it just to see how he would be. I noticed straight away that he wasn’t as content as he is when on Steady-Up Advance, especially in and around the stable. I started feeding it again immediately, and he hasn’t been off of it since.”
“Coby is still on Steady-Up Advance now, I’m still happy with the affects and would recommend it to anyone who is having difficulty with their horse! I love how Feedmark deliver the next day for free. They do so many fab offers, and as owning a horse is so expensive it’s very much appreciated! I have also used the instant calmer, MagnaFeed for things like shows.”
A FREE tub of Steady-Up Advance is on its way to Coby for being our Horse Of The Week!
