Meet Trish, Savannah and Seefari “Sleepy”

sleepy1

When Sleepy came to us, he needed weight, lacked muscle and was in poor condition overall. After determining his specific needs, we decided to start him on SmartFlex Senior to support his joints. In a few short weeks, there was a noticeable difference and in a few months, he was almost unrecognizable from the horse we brought home! When my daughter Savannah started riding Sleepy in recognized events, we switched him to SmartFlex Senior Herb-Free Pellets to keep him going strong. Sleepy and Savannah have become an amazing team, moving up to Training Level and winning their second-ever Training event at Poplar Place Horse Trials! I can truly say that SmartSupplements have helped get these two where they are today. Thanks SmartPak!

Meet Audrey and Oliver

“I first met Oliver in 2007 when he was a school horse at St. Andrew’s University in North Carolina. He was 21 and still jumping in the IHSA horse shows that we hosted throughout the school year. Sadly, Oliver’s stifles and hocks didn’t match his phenomenal work ethic…”

Meet Kris and Kapriool (“Kapri”)

“A 15-year-old schoolmaster when I purchased him, Kapri had tons to teach. We obtained most of our Bronze medal qualifying scores together, and he escorted me to 4th Level. Last year, Kapri injured his hock playing in his turnout. After six months of stall rest and recuperation, he started back in light work…”

Meet Kristen and Art Treasure (“Art”)

Art_March2012-thumb

“When Art came to me two years ago, he was in pathetic shape – underweight and stiff from front to back. He refused to go in a frame, was obviously uncomfortable at the canter and wouldn’t even roll in the field. We tried several different supplements, but nothing made much of a difference. On a friend’s recommendation…”

Jen and Tally
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...
