Trainer: Chris Bearden
Rider: Logan Bearden
Marlin has always been an easy horse to handle, but he has never had an appetite while traveling and even after we arrive at competitions, it’s slow to return. Between his poor appetite while traveling and the extra conditioning he does in preparation to compete in CIC* and CCI* events, it has been a battle to keep weight on him.
A month after Marlin started on SmartGut Ultra Pellets, we took him to a competition three hours away. Marlin ate on the trailer the entire way to the show! Throughout the entire weekend, he ate like he does at home and didn’t show any signs of stomach discomfort. The results of the weekend? Logan and Marlin finished first in their first Intermediate level combined test together!
