Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: A ‘Sound of Silence’ Freestyle

Prepare to be mesmerized. During Dressage at Devon last week, Jacqueline Brooks and D Niro, an 18-year-old Swedish Warmblood gelding owned by Mary Brooks and Brookhaven Dressage Inc., performed an FEI Grand Prix Freestyle to Disturbed’s powerful cover of the Simon and Garfunkle original, “The Sound of Silence.”

The performance earned them a 70.875 for third place. More notably, their performance was a contrast of the typical freestyle, which is often a mix of different songs or sounds spliced together to match a pattern.

Jacqueline worked with a professional to adjust the tempo of the music but otherwise performed through an entire song that spoke to the heart and soul of the audience and the performer herself.

If you’d like to know more about the development of this freestyle and the story behind it, Heels Down Magazine got the scoop: “I Think It’s the Future” Jacquie Brooks Brings Innovative Freestyle to Dressage at Devon.

The feeling you get when you hug your horse

It’s why we do what we do.

Fight back against colic and digestive upset

Neigh-Lox Advanced provides a scientifically advanced blend of ingredients that work synergistically to maintain your horse’s digestive tract in peak condition by supporting both the gastrointestinal tissues and the beneficial bacteria that populate the gut.  Maintaining a healthy digestive tract reduces the risk of colonic and gastric ulcers, colic, laminitis related to hind-gut acidosis, and oxidative stress that damages digestive tract tissues themselves.  Horses with a well-balanced GI tract have good appetites, absorb more nutrients from their diets, maintain a strong immune system, and stay healthier.

It is why the horse that matters to you matters to us. Not sure which horse supplement best meets your horse’s needs? We are here to help. Contact Kentucky Performance Products, LLC at 859-873-2974 or visit our website at
