We caught up with AQHYA President Mark Mowbray after the 2012 AQHYA World Championships to talk about his experience at the show and the supplements he uses to keep Teddy looking good (and placing well!).
A Good Storm “Teddy” and Mark Mowbray
Wow! What a Youth World! Teddy and I were able to complete the goal that we have been shooting for in the past few years: to be Top Ten at the AQHA Built Ford Tough Youth World Championship Show.
Since the Youth World last year, Teddy has been on SmartMuscle Mass, SmartShine Ultra and SmartFlex III Resilience Pellets. These supplements have really made a positive difference in his performance this past year. Teddy looks amazing! He really has a large load on him; Teddy is being shown in Open, Youth, and Amateur Performance Halter Geldings, Youth and Senior Western Pleasure, Youth Western Horsemanship, and Green Hunter Under Saddle. He has proven to be very successful in everything this year. As of February, he was second in the nation in Green Hunter Under Saddle with Jamie Murrow.
Teddy never ceases to amaze me. He always does what you ask him. I was so proud when I heard the announcer say that we were sixth place in Performance Geldings at the 2012 Youth World Show. It was truly an emotional time for me. Our farrier, John Wilson, had just passed away the day I returned from the 2012 AQHA Youth World Cup in Germany. The last time he was at our farm, he said that he expected nothing else but Top Ten at Youth World from Teddy and I. To go out and do what he said was truly a gift from God and John.
Currently Teddy is at the Halvorson Ranch prepping for Congress, where he will be shown in all Performance Halter Geldings classes, Youth 15-18 Pleasure, NYATT Pleasure and Horsemanship, and Novice Youth 15-18 Horsemanship with me, and Green Hunter Under Saddle with Jamie Murrow.
Thank you SmartPak for everything you do,
