This 12-year-old gentle giant is Tigger, who is owned by Anita Vernalls. Anita told us: “Tigger stands at 17.3hh, and he is Hanoverian cross Irish. I have owned him since 2006 when I bought him as a two-year-old from Hereford. Tigger is a multi-purpose, family horse who my partner also rides. I use him for show jumping and showing, and my partner uses him for cross country and for trail hunting.”
“Tigger has won many firsts in show jumping and is a perfect lead horse in the hunting field. On the road, he is a perfect gentleman whom is good when out alone but is also a very good lead for young or nervous horses.”
“In the future I would like to do more dressage and showing with Tigger and to improve his groundwork. He is always enthusiastic towards work and acts like a youngster in the field with our others. Tigger always has plenty of confidence, whatever discipline he is doing, from dressage to cross country.”
“For the past ten years Tigger, along with all my other horses, has been fed Feedmark’s Benevit Advance. They always look very well and no matter what time of year, they always have a glossy, shiny coat. I think Benevit Advance keeps Tigger’s feet in excellent condition, as he keeps his shoes for a good eight weeks.”
A FREE tub of Benevit Advance is on its way to Tigger for being our Horse Of The Week!
