Horse Of The Week – Dee.

Dee 9This is Dee, a 19-year-old Thoroughbred. She stands at 17hh, and is loaned by Megan Pollitt who has been loaning her since 4th July 2015.

Megan told us: “Together, Dee and I primarily do dressage and hacking, but she has previously evented. We competed in a Dee 7showing show shortly after I got her, where she was placed in every class and was foot perfect. Unfortunately, since then we have had no more outings due to our lack of transport. Dee has been working Dee 6beautifully in the arena and we hope to compete in dressage competitions next month!”

“Since putting Dee on ActiVet in November 2015, the changes have been outstanding! She is so flexible, she Dee 5really works her back end and is really balanced which shows in our schooling. Out hacking she’s up for anything and loves to be out, always has a spring in her step! It’s lovely to see her playing in the field, galloping full speed, bucking vertically and turning like a games Dee 3pony! I wouldn’t choose any other supplement!”

“Dee is a one in a million horse and I’m so thankful I have the chance to loan her. She’s loved by everyone at our yard and has the sweetest character! She’s like an overgrown dog.”Dee 4

Horse Of The Week – Enoch.

Enoch 1Meet Feedmark’s new Horse Of The Week, Strathardle Enochdhu. Also known as Enoch, he turned 23-years-old on 27th April this year. Owner, Tara Jane Lothian explains: “Enoch is a 15.1hh Highland. I’ve owned him for over four years, I had him on loan for a year or so before that, and had riding lessons on him before that”.

“When I bought Enoch I knew he had limited mobility, but as I was totally in love with him I bought him anyway, though everyone told me I was mad! We were only doing light hacking due to his health, but this then had to stop Enoch 7over a year ago.”

“Winter 2014 took its toll on him, his movement became much worse which resulted in loss of muscle and weight. So after that, I decided to give him a good Summer and Autumn over 2015, but decided that it wouldn’t be fair to put him through another Winter.”

“Whilst I was at Your Horse Live, I talked with the people on the Feedmark stand, who recommended I try ExtraFlex HA with Rosehips. So I bought abig tub of it, thinking Enoch 4‘what have I got to loose’. I knew then that we were on a countdown.”

“Well, I really can’t believe the difference it has made! Enoch now trots about and even canters! He has gained weight and muscle, and is more mobile now than he was when I first bought him. Enoch is currently enjoying his retirement.”

“I wish I had discovered ExtraFlex HA with Rosehips years ago, and not wasted my time and Enoch 8money on other supplements. Thank you Feedmark, now I get to watch my boy be the cheeky horse that everyone knows and loves! Enoch deserves it as he spent years in a riding school where lots of people learned to ride on him. I’m still in touch with a few of the people that he taught to ride, as everyone falls in love with Enoch.”

Horse Of The Week – Valentino.

Valentino 2Valentino is an Irish Sports Horse, and he stands at 16.1hh. He is 6 years old and belongs to Rachel Calder, who has owned Valentino since September 2014. Rachel explains: “I do mostly dressage, schooling and hacking with Vallé. I currently compete with him in British Dressage Team Quest, and our teams are currently 4th and 9th place in Scotland.”Valentino 6

“I don’t have a great deal of information about Vallé’s past. All I know is that he came straight from the breeder in Ireland, to a dealer. He had never had a feed in his life, nor had he been turned out. he had done some hunting but not a lot. He was quite a nervous skittish Valentino 5character, but now he loves life.”

“I’m hoping to start Vallé’s jumping education in the next year, as I would really like to do cross country and also some Working Hunter classes with him.”

“Vallé was losing front shoes every second week and his feet Valentino 4were beginning to crumble. There was soon going to be no hoof to put a shoe on! After putting him on Feedmark’s Hardy Hoof Formula, Vallé can now go the full 8 weeks without his shoes even being loose.”

“I took him off the supplement, and after just two weeks he lost a shoe. The supplement works wonders. I am a strong believer Valentino 1in Feedmark, I use their SarVoid for skin blemishes, and Benevit Advance for everyday Vitamins and Minerals.”

Horse Of The Week – Daisy.

Daisy 1Meet Daisy, an Irish Sports Horse who is rising 11 years old. Daisy stands at 16.2hh and has been owned for six years, by Jayne Nicholson.

Jayne explains: “Together, we mainly compete in low level dressage, and we Daisy 3do a few Show Jumping clinics also. Daisy achieved Reserve Champion in my local Dressage League last year. Our aim for the future is to compete in more Show Jumping Classes.”

“Daisy has always had poor coat and skin condition over Daisy 4the spring and summer months.
However, since being on EquiDermis Plus this is a thing of the past and she hardly ever rubs herself at all. Her skin and coat is in fantastic condition.”Daisy 8

“I tried Daisy without the product for a few weeks a year ago, just to see how she was. She gradually got scurfy and started rubbing, and I vowed never to be without EquiDermis Plus again!”

Daisy 6“Daisy is a classic Chestnut mare, very opinionated! With her attitude she was a bit of a handful, and her coat was always lacking shine. At least now I have solved one of the problems!”

Horse Of The Week – Icelander.

Icelander 7This is Icelander, he stands at 15.2hh and is 6 years old. This Welsh Cross is owned by Tiernee McCall, and has been for three years. Tiernee explains: “Mainly, we compete in affiliated British Dressage, but we also jump for fun. I broke Icelander in, just over two years ago. Since then, we have placed in the 2015 DressageIcelander 14 Masters Semi Final, Summer Regional’s and Area Festivals, and have also competed as part of the Southern BYRDS team.”

“I bought Icelander as an unbroken driving prospect, with the intent to break and sell him on. After having some
Icelander 1lessons with Leanne Wall it soon became apparent that he had far too much to give to ever sell him.”

“Regarding our plans for the future, I am hoping to qualify for Dressage Masters at Novice and Elementary. We have already qualified this year for the British Dressage Native Pony Champs and Area Icelander 15Festival at Elementary level. I hope to do a Medium dressage test by the end of the year and just see how far we can go!”

“Icelander is nicknamed Princess due to his attitude. He is a one in a million horse, and has given me so many amazing opportunities already, I can’t wait to see what the future has to hold.”

“Icelander’s dressage score had begun to drop down to around 65/66 and we were receiving comments Icelander 13from the judge regarding lack of energy and cadence. I believed this was due to his sudden weight gain. I then tried Feedmark’s SlimAid, and it has been amazing! Icelander looks Icelander 3healthy and fit, and he has lost the excess weight. He is now full of energy and no longer seems to tire! Last weekend was the first time Icelander had breezed through two elementary tests without tiring, and then had plenty of energy the next day to do some jumping. We love SlimAid!”
