Bill and his team have been continuing their success this season, with another 3* win at Tattershalls, Ireland. Silkstone produced a super double clear to win a hotly contested section with ease. Improvise was not far behind though, clocking up a hugely pleasing second placing in the CCI3*. Along with a phenomenal win at Samur with Shannodale Titin, these consistent results have culminated in Shannondale Titan, and Improvise ranking within the 10 top horse performances for 2013. They have also been selected for the Equestrian Australia 2014 Normandy, and 2016 Rio squads!
With Bill currently ranking 19th on the HSBC world rankings, this is a very exciting team to follow. We are very pleased that SUCCEED is helping in the well being of his horses through such a busy season and the results really do speak for themselves.
Chris King recorded a fantastic win with Billy Bounce in the CIC2* at Barbury International. In Billy Bounces second ever 2*, he lead from the start with a super dressage of 42.8 and added nothing with foot perfect show jumping and cross country rounds.
Only the week before he also finished on his dressage score at Slaperton OI to record a second placing so he’s becoming something of a double clear expert!
Chris and Zanie are such great advocates of SUCCEED, always sporting our SUCCEED logo’s at competitions and during training. Both Chris and Zanie did a fantastic job at supporting us at our Digestive Health in the Performance Horse seminar in Lambourn last month. Those who attended really appreciated the opportunity to ask Chris and Zanie about their horses and the benefits they see in using SUCCEED. Zanie commented that their horses all look so well on SUCCEED, and very rarely suffer from any digestive issues. In addition, Chris also commented about how relaxed, happy and ready to work their horses are. There is no doubt that their hard work and carefully planned management of their horses, supported by a daily dose of SUCCEED is producing outstanding results. Well done Chris and his team!
Lucinda also did a brilliant job of supporting us in Lambourn for our Digestive Health seminar. Lucinda’s enthusiasm for SUCCEED is second to none, and she gave a fascinating insight into her experiences of using SUCCEED on her horses.
Lucinda has had some good runs with Cry Freedom this season. They contested the 3* at both Houghton and Barbury Internationals, with clear cross country rounds but a few rolled poles in Show jumping. A slight issue with an abscess near Cry Freedoms noseband was to blame at Houghton, but over exuberance at Barbury meant a tricky ride in the dressage and show jumping but a thoroughly thrilling cross country ride.
Lissa had a super ride in the 1* at Houghton international on Glencrue Destiny, just adding 1.6 penalties to their dressage to finish in 20th place. This provided a good run up for the 2* at Barbury, where they managed a very pleasing double clear. CTS So what took a dislike to a skinny in the 2*, leaving them with 20 penalties to add but Lissa was pleased all the same, especially with a clear show jumping – a phase that doesn’t come easily to him.
Lambourn Equine Digestive Health Seminar
Although the heat seemed to put some off, those who did come along were rewarded with a really great evening. Lambourn Equine Vets supported the evening and were on hand to chat to attendees. They are such a well respected practice with outstanding vets, and have years of experience of using SUCCEED.
Lucinda Green and Chris & Zanie King were our guest speakers and gave a great insight into the management and feeding of their horses, and the benefits they have found in using SUCCEED. We are very fortunate to have such great advocates.
