There is No Off-Season for Healthy Joints

JMott_SBG_thumb

Does your winter joint supplement routine feel a little, well, disjointed? Just because the weather cools off doesn’t mean your horse’s joint support should.

In the Tack with the Pak – Colby and Timex

Colby_Timex-thumb

As riders, we know there’s a special connection between us and our horses that’s hard to put into words, but this bond is so strong that even non-riders can sense it. In an effort to better understand this relationship, our staff Photographer, Kristi (one of the few non-riders at SmartPak), will be visiting a different SmartPaker’s barn each month to watch them interact with their horses and learn more about their story as a pair. She will document her experiences in this monthly blog series along with some of her photography, because we all know that a connection so special is hard to describe simply in words.
