Horse Of The Week – Alfie.

alfie-3This 16hh Thoroughbred is Alfie, and he is 13 years old. Gaelann East owns Alfie, and has done so for 3 years. Together they do a lot of dressage. Gaelann told us: “Alfie is an ex racer, he raced with a few placings then went off to a home that hacked him out before he came to me to be retrained for dressage. Alfie and I have been placed and have qualified at the RoR National Finals for three years running. alfie-1We came 10th with our Dressage To Music pair at the Riding Club Finals this year. Alfie also took RoR South East Champion in three classes this year.”

“I have lots of plans for Alfie to move up the alfie-6Dressage levels, and in 2017 we will start to work on Elementary moves, and hopefully go out competing in new Elementary Freestyle to Music. Alfie and I have lots of Qualifications to work towards with RoR Dressage and hope to top the points league again.”

“When Alfie came to us his hoof structure was weak and we kept losing shoes, so I started feeding Feedmark’s Hardy Hoof Formula. Alfie is a right fussalfie-2 monster when it comes to food but the small pellets of Hardy Hoof were easily mixed into his feed. Now we have got him to a stage where he maintains a strong hoof structure, we can keep shoes on for 6 weeks, whereas before he was slipping out of alfie-7them rather too frequently. In the summer when Alfie is on a reduced hard feed, we top up his diet with more hardy hoof to support the hoof horn growth rates. I would highly recommend this product for shod or barefoot horses (I have one of each).”alfie-5
