Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Boyd’s Kid, Tho

What is Boyd Martin talking about in this interview? I’m guessing something about his 4th place finish with Christine Turner’s Kyra in the $50,000 LiftMaster Grand-Prix Eventing at Bruce’s Field (see EN’s coverage here). But honestly, while I see Boyd’s lips moving all I’m paying attention to is the smiley, adorable cherub child perched on his shoulders. Those little cowboy boots … I can’t even.

Oh right, Boyd and Kyra. The pair showed their mettle in a competitive field, posting double-clear jumping rounds to move from a tie for 9th after dressage into the top four. Their next stop is Red Hills, where Kyra is entered in the Advanced division. Might we see them one-up their 2nd place finish there from last year?

Equi-Jewel® rice bran

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 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®.
