I have been a professional in the equine industry for well over 40 years and have been fortunate to have had access to some of the best dressage trainers in the world, either as long term trainers or clinicians with whom I have worked on occasion. I have trained and competed 2 horses successfully to the GP level with many others getting close and learning many of the GP exercises. Along the way I was able to achieve one dream of riding a musical freestyle under the lights at Dressage at Devon at the GP level in 2006. I teach riders of all ages and levels as long as they want to learn and improve.
I was the Director of Equitation at the University of Massachusetts for 8 years. Many of my graduates from that era have gone on to become successful equine professionals in their own rites.
I have been feeding Seminole Wellness Feeds for over 8 years now and have found them to be second to none. The performance horses eat either Wellness DynaSport or the new Wellness SportHorse feeds. The Wellness DynaSport is a high calorie, high fat, low starch feed to help the horses keep their weight up without needing to consume a high quantity of feed. They stay very calm on it and look amazing!
The Wellness SportHorse has been a GREAT addition to the SeminoleWellness lineup in that it is providing the protein needed to help build the strong musculature that a dressage horse needs without getting them too fat. I have a couple of very easy keepers in the group and with the Wellness SportHorse, they are able to trim down without sacrificing the energy needed for their work. Angie and company came and spent an afternoon with the barn owner, Lucy Calhoun, and me, answering all our questions and helping us to adjust the feed for these horses as they were launching the new feed.
I hope that my horses’ condition and performances speaks volumes as far as encouraging people to give Seminole Feed a try!
