This Month’s Pick
SmartPaker: Veronica B.
Department: Customer Care
Horse: Ruby Slippers, 7 year old, Oldenburg Mare
I began riding when I was 6 years old as a birthday present. That one birthday present turned into leasing a horse, which led to buying a horse, which led to owning four horses! I show in the hunters and recently just returned home from HITS in Ocala, Florida. I brought along my new horse, Ruby Slippers. This was our very first horse show together, so I wanted to make sure her supplement needs were covered, since I had about a bazillion other things to worry about!
In Ruby’s SmartPaks:
SmartCombo Ultra Pellets
Although Ruby is a young horse, I chose SmartCombo Ultra for her because she was competing on the strenuous winter circuit. This supplement provides high levels of joint, tendon and ligament support with the active ingredients of SmartFlex III Resilience. I also like that the formula includes the active ingredients of SmartDigest Ultra. Traveling and horse showing can be extremely stressful, so I want to provide Ruby with the digestive support she needs to compete at her best. ColiCare, our $7500 colic surgery reimbursement program, was definitely an added bonus to this already awesome supplement!
Ruby isn’t quite “spooky,” but she does get nervous in new situations. Horse showing can be overwhelming for a young horse, especially at HITS where there are horses going in every direction. SmartCalm helps take some of the excess edge off, making it easier for Ruby to concentrate on her job rather than the horse three rings away.
Traveling, competing, and lack of turnout at horse shows can all contribute to gastric upset, so all of the show horses in my barn are on SmartGut. This supplement provides amino acids, soothing herbs and more to support a healthy stomach, making it the perfect addition to Ruby’s SmartPak!
Why Veronica uses SmartPaks:
All four of my horses have completely different needs. SmartPaks are customizable and can be adjusted at any time to fit your horse’s program. Also, in a barn full of horses on supplements, each SmartPak has the horse’s name printed on top so I can be sure my horse is getting the right supplements every day!
