Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Between the Ears at Blenheim with Andrew Hoy

While you might have been primarily focused on the CCI4*-L at SsangYong Blenheim Palace International Horse Trials this past weekend, there was an equally exciting competition full of up-and-coming event horse stars in the eight- and nine-year-old CCI4*-S, ultimately won by Australia’s Chris Burton and Clever Louis.

Amongst the competition was fellow countryman Andrew Hoy riding Odaria Finemore‘s Bloom des Hauts Crets, a lovely young Selle Français mare (Orlando X Naika de Kerser, by Oberon du Moulin) who is already racking up frequently flyer miles in international competition having just returned form Tokyo last month to contest the Ready Steady Tokyo Olympic test event.

At Blenheim, the 8-year-old’s first four-star competition, the mare finished just outside the top 10 in 11th place, adding only 6 time penalties to her dressage score. The rain that day made for a dramatic-looking gallop across the beautiful Blenheim grounds — grab mane and enjoy the ride!

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®.
