Out of all the talented & successful riders, trainers, owners, breeders, and business people in our community, I have no deeper respect than for the horseman who can let go of the logistics of “success” and embrace the humility, patience, selflessness, and love that comes with knowing the significance in the eye of a horse.
Before we jump into to an extremely heart warming, inspiring transformation story about a cheeky little quarter horse, there are a few themes to be aware of.
Loving the animal matters. He needs a reason to stay alive.
Patience and perseverance is key, rehab takes time, faith, and a blind eye to naysayers.
The reality of purposing rehabbed horses is not always easy. Success takes grit and a can do attitude.
The more we learn about our horses’ GI tracts the more we realize we need to support their health. Gastric pain, dull coat, poor topline, sluggish performance, misbehavior, and muscle tension can often be traced back to gastro-intestinal problems. Even hard keeping horses reveal inefficient digestion & nutrient absorption. So how can we help the engine of the horse?
Strong Shout out to Noble Outfitters for creating a tote that thrives in the setting of horses, spray bottles, and tailgating! The Equine Essential tote is certainly essential in my barn, as its unique design offers convenient use, bio-security measure, and mold resistance! Going for $49.99 (with mini totes at $24.99) Rover weekend, Equine Essential Totes can be found @ HorseLoverZ Booth, One Stop Equine Shop, & In The Stirrup.
Noble Outfitters featured rider, Erin Sylvester, looks forward to Rover cross country day after a successful dressage test on Friday! Erin’s Irish thoroughbred, Paddy the Caddy, has proven to be a strong and tactical cross country horse and will be a fierce competitor today as he makes his debut run at the Kentucky 3-Day. We were so fortunate to be able to pull Erin aside from her busy day and talk about cross-country and horse health! Here are four highlights of Erin Sylvester’s training and sports medicine program that help horses prepare for and recover from America’s 4* cross-country course.
Creeping into the Summer season, horse people have a lot to look forward to. Summer brings tan lines, shiny horses, showing, and warm weather! The wonderful people at Noble Outfitters have been working all winter to prepare the health products necessary in every barn this season. I know that these three Noble products will be abundant in my barn this summer to keep my horses happy and well!
The countdown is almost over! Tomorrow marks the start of the 2018 Land Rover Kentucky 3-Day Event, and here at Noble Outfitters we couldn’t be more excited! With open course walks and event activities starting at 1 O’clock today, the Kentucky Horse Park is busy working with new exhibitors, new sponsors, and new competitors. One thing that will never change, drum roll please… the weather forecast for the weekend stretches from 40-80 degrees with a chance of rain.
