Thank you Blou, what a machine! Don’t need to say anything else.Lying 5th now after XC at Burghley Horse Trials. #hugs #horsesofinstagram
Great Britain’s Sarah Bullimore had a ride to remember across Captain Mark Phillips’ Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials cross country course aboard Rev Du Rouet and she has shared the helmet cam view of her ride on her Facebook page, so click here to go and watch!
Buckle up and enjoy a clear round behind the pricked ears of “Blou,” a 15-year-old Oldenburg gelding owned by Chris and Sue Gillespie. Adding just 10 time penalties to their dressage score meant the pair moved up from 11th after dressage to 5th after cross country. A double clear show jumping round the following day then meant finishing the competition in 4th place on a score of 39.6.
This past weekend’s finish at Burghley marks the pair’s twelfth five-star completion together, with other notable finishes being a 5th place finish at Luhmühlen earlier this year, a matching 4th place at last year’s Burghley and a 2nd place finish at Pau in 2017. After a long partnership, the pair’s hard work seems to be paying off in spades and we’re excited to see what they can conquer next!
Fight back against an energy crisis that can impact condition and performance.
Equi-Jewel® is a high-fat, low-starch and -sugar formula developed to safely meet the energy needs of your horse.
Whether you have a hard keeper that needs extra calories to maintain his weight, or a top performance horse that needs cool energy to perform at her peak, Equi-Jewel can meet your horse’s energy needs. Equi-Jewel reduces the risk of digestive upset, supports optimal muscle function, maintains stamina, and helps horses recover faster after hard work, all while providing the calories your horse needs to thrive.
The fat found in rice bran is an extraordinary source of dietary energy. In fact, fat contains more than two times the energy that carbohydrates and proteins do, thereby fueling horses more efficiently. Fat is considered a “cool” feedstuff because it does not cause the hormone spikes that lead to excitability. Adding Equi-Jewel rice bran to your horse’s diet allows you to decrease the amount of starchy concentrates (grains) you feed, reducing the risk of colic and laminitis resulting from grain overload. Equi-Jewel is an excellent source of calories for horses on low-sugar and low-starch diets.
The horse that matters to you matters to us®.
