Our EN Slack chat is always a pretty fizzy place to be, with rapid-fire messages coming in from a number of timezones throughout the day and night. But when part of the team is at a major event? Hooooo boy, does it POP OFF. We’ve got our editor-in-chief Sally Spickard on site in Tokyo this week, and when she arrived to watch arena familiarisation the other day, she wasted no time at all: within minutes, she was reporting back on her horse crush of the week. Naturally, we’ve all been following him – and his rider – from afar ever since.
The former Bettina Hoy mount Seigneur Medicott is undeniably striking, with a dressage average in the low-20s and legs that seem to go on for days. But it’s well worth taking note of his rider, too. Indian competitor Fouaad Mirza is based with former World Champion Sandra Auffarth in Germany, and he’s no slouch: we’ve seen him making a mark on the European circuit in his quest to put India on the eventing map. We were keen to find out more about the up-and-coming superstar before he becomes everyone’s new favourite rider this week – so check out this video to find out some of what we learned and get yourself on the bandwagon nice and early.
Exercise-induced muscle damage that results in sore, stiff muscles and poor performance is a common problem in athletic horses. Vitamin E plays an important role in preserving optimal muscle function by interrupting the production of harmful free radicals that can damage critical tissues. When vitamin E levels in muscle tissue are inadequate, the risk of exercise-induced muscle damage is increased.
Elevate® Maintenance Powder supplies the natural vitamin E your horse needs to neutralize damaging free radicals and support peak performance. Keep your horse at the top of his game with Elevate natural vitamin E.
The horse that matters to you matters to us®.
