I got my start in horses thirty years ago at the age of six, when my older sister got her first horse. I watched her ride, admired her fancy outfits, and begged to be allowed to get on her big, shiny horse. Luckily, my parents and sister encouraged my interest and allowed me to start out as a beaming little girl being led around in a saddle five sizes too big. A year later, I got a horse of my own. He was the perfect first horse – patient and honest, but with a little extra pep in his step when we went into the show ring. I learned so much from him, and I was hooked from that moment on.

Horses have always been an important part of my life, so I can’t imagine a week going by where I haven’t been at the barn for hours on end cleaning stalls, grooming horses, or going for a ride. No matter what is going on in my life, horses are the one constant. Nothing is more relaxing and soothing than brushing a horse and hearing them nicker when you walk in the door. That bond is one for life, and is one that I love to share with those around me. Horses also give me a real sense of accomplishment and confidence. The moment you master something you’ve spent weeks, maybe months working on with your horse. The excitement of nailing the perfect leg yield, or the “this is it” feeling when your horse lengthens into that slow legged, reaching and smooth trot you’ve been striving for. Whether in the show ring or at the arena at home, the satisfaction from success is the same.

My trainer and the owners of the farm I board at were the ones who first introduced me to SmartPak when I mentioned that I needed new boots and some basic grooming supplies. As a high school teacher, I need high quality products at a reasonable price, and that first order was the beginning of a beautiful relationship with SmartPak. The few times I have had to call with questions, everyone is always very helpful and takes the time to not only answer my questions, but make me feel like a real person. It’s so satisfying to call up and have someone remember my horse’s name and what he needs!

I started using SmartPaks at the urging of the owner of the farm I board at. I purchased my horse Eli as a two-year-old, and he had trouble putting on weight and had weak, brittle feet. He was constantly losing shoes and pulling off pieces of his hooves as he overreached. I called SmartPak, and worked closely with a representative who helped me figure out what supplements would benefit Eli most in conjunction with the high-quality feeding program he was already receiving. We chose SmartHoof Ultra Pellets to promote healthy hoof growth, SmartDigest Ultra for normal digestion, and Cool Calories 100 to support his body condition. Eli now has strong hooves, a healthy coat, and is ready to take me into the show pen!
