Peek in Our Paks – Jess R.

Ever wish you could take a sneak peek inside our horses’ SmartPaks? Now you can! Check out the supplements we love, for the horses we adore.

This Month’s Pick

Staff Member: Jess R.
Department: IT
Horse: Kandida, 15 year-old Holsteiner
Discipline: Jumper/Equitation

I started riding when I was 8 years old, after begging my parents for riding lessons. They thought it’d be a passing phase but 25 years later I’m still riding and even own a small boarding facility.

I’ve owned my mare Kandida for almost a year now. She’s a been there/done that hunter/eq horse with ribbons at all the big east coast shows, from Ocala to the Catskills. She’s an amazing teacher and this past fall we placed at the Mass Hunter/Jumper Equitation Finals and Rhode Island Equitation Finals. Next year we hope to qualify for the New England Medal Finals.

Kandida’s SmartPaks

Kandida’s SmartPaks include SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets and SmartHoof Pellets.

SmartFlex® Senior Herb-Free Pellets

(249 reviews)

I chose SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets because Kandida has had a long competitive career and still jumps once or twice a week. I want to keep her going strong for a long time, but since we compete at USEF shows, I need a supplement that doesn’t contain any herbs. Kandida is also a picky eater, so I needed something that came in a pelleted form. SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets were the obvious choice for us.

I chose SmartHoof Pellets because there’s nothing worse than having your training held up by a lost shoe. Kandida’s old owners mentioned that she had a history of weak, “crumbly” feet so I wanted to keep her hooves strong and healthy. SmartHoof Pellets have been the perfect fit.

Why Jess Uses SmartPaks

I buy Kandida’s supplements in SmartPaks because my barn is run as a co-op, so there are a lot of different people involved in feeding the horses. I want to make sure that Kandida is getting her supplements in the right amounts every day and SmartPaks make it easy. The automatic shipping means I never worry about running out. And since I use the SmartSupplements brand, it’s the same cost as it would be if I bought buckets.

Apparently I've been obsessed with horses since I was born, and I used to beg for pony rides on a regular basis. I started showing in 4-H, progressed to equitation and jumpers in high school and rode on the IHSA team in college where I also discovered the joys...
