Wednesday Video from Kentucky Performance Products: Winter Feelings from Pontus Hugosson

Ah, winter. A season for sipping hot chocolate while cozying up near a fireplace and reading a good book, right? Not if you’re a horse person. If you are blessed enough to have equines in your care, winter is the season of bundling up in so many layers that you can hardly move, yet your fingers are still so cold that they actually hurt, in order to get out the door and take care of those horses of yours. Swedish event rider and … personality, I guess you’d call him … Pontus Hugosson nails what winter as an equestrian is like in his latest sketch.

We don’t know too much about Pontus, mostly just that he seems to only ride grey horses, wears ski goggles during the cross country phase, and creates some pretty hilarious and often relatable sketches on his Instagram page featuring his blonde-wigged character “Bettan.” Thanks for bringing us some extra insanity in the middle, Pontus.

Elevate® Maintenance Powder was developed to provide a highly bioavailable source of natural vitamin E to horses. Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, limits the damage caused by everyday oxidative stress. It maintains healthy muscle and nerve functions so horses are more likely to perform better and recover faster after training or competing.

Vitamin E requirements vary from situation to situation. Multiple research studies have shown that vitamin E is often deficient in the diets of horses that do not have access to continual grazing on fresh green grass, or those grazing on winter pasture. Performance horses with demanding workloads, growing horses and seniors can be exposed to increased levels of oxidative stress and therefore require higher levels of vitamin E in their diets. Studies reveal that horses challenged by neurological disease benefit from natural vitamin E supplementation.
