Our newest Horse Of The Week is Flick. He is owned by Deanna Savin, who told us: “Meet Flick, otherwise known as my best friend. This horse has taken me on a crazy 5-year journey, but if I’m honest I wouldn't have had it any other way. When we bought Flick we were under the impression that he was a green five-year-old, only to find out that he was just turning four.” “After a few months of getting Flick fit and working him on the ground, we went to our first show. This didn’t go to plan. He napped, bucked, and bolted off. The same thing happened at almost every show that I went to, for two years. I would be the one who would fall of at least once during every show jumping round, because of the dirty stops he used to put in. My name floods the tumblers book in my local Pony Club.” “However, after two years of never giving up, and falling off almost every day, we finally got it. Flick just thought “okay, I’m going to be a real horse now”. During that summer when he was turning six, we ended up winning two classes at Arena UK, winning at Cricklands, and winning Intermediate Hunter Trials which took us to Finals and many more great successes.” “Suddenly, everything went downhill again and we couldn't understand why. I was heartbroken. I had to dramatically reduce his work load, after 8 weeks of only walking, I was finally allowed to start short trots, and then gradually work up to canter. After many months we could then start jumping again. These few months really made me realize how much I appreciate this horse, and how happy he truly makes me. Our vet recommended Feedmark’s VitaSel-E supplement and it worked a treat! After a few weeks of VitaSel-E, Flick was back to being my cheeky pony and seemed even better than ever. Now, 5 years into our journey, we are flying around British Showjumping tracks. We are winning all of the time, and having the time of our lives competing successfully most weekends. Thank you Feedmark, for helping me to get my pony back.” A FREE tub of VitaSel-E is on its way to Flick for being our Horse Of The Week! Each week, the Feedmark team select a horse of the week from reviews, letters and emails sent to them.
