We are Grand Prix/Young Rider Show Jumpers based in Dannevirke, New Zealand. We have a large team of horses, and have been using a variety of BetaVet products for the past 3 seasons. Our team consists mostly of younger horses moving through the age group classes. We also have a number of homebreed youngsters on the hills waiting to join our team. The animal health management of our horses is a top priority to us as this ultimately determines the horses performance, especially with the younger horses.
Over the past seasons using the BetaVet products our team of horses have all looked good, and performed well.
Our entire show jumping team live on BetaVet Prepare. Prepare is like a super tonic for horses and we wouldn’t be without it. It helps our horses to train and perform consistently, helps with muscle recovery, and their coats always look amazing. It is also a must for horses that are prone to tieing up.
We use several other products to help improve each one of our horses.
Most weekends we are travelling to and from shows and training at high levels throughout the week. This puts a lot of stress on our horses, especially the younger ones. We have found the use of BuildaGut helps to keep our horses guts settled, reducing risk of ulcers developing within the stomach. Happy tummy….Happy horse.
We give Protect to our horses jumping the bigger heights This product helps maintain healthy joints and recovery of muscles after serious exercise.
If a horse has a big class at the end of a longer show, or a horse is feeling a little flat, a Super Boost energiser gives them that little get up go needed to maintain a competitive edge.
We also have in the stable, Electrolift, which we use when we travel long distances. Echinacea and Equi-Coff is always on hand for a horse showing cold symptoms .
Since using these products we have had success in the Age Group Classes and Horses jumping at the higher heights. 2017/18 National Young Horse Show:
