Discipline: Eventing. I like to attend the occasional show jumping and dressage training and competition days too!
Career Highlight: I’d like to hope it’s still to come! But Ollie is my highlight. To have him competing at the level he is and successfully is amazing! Ticking Melbourne International Horse Trials CCI2* off the bucket list was huge and we now have our sights set on Adelaide International 3*. Being on the Eventing State Squad is a highlight, we’ve maintained our position for about 3 years now and he’s definitely the smallest on the team by far! This year has been quieter but winning the Monarto 2* and coming 2nd at the Naracoorte State Eventing Champs at 2* were pretty awesome too
Best Horse: Wynara Bronze Medal (Ollie) is my top horse, we plan to step back up to 3* next year, aiming for Adelaide Horse Trials in November. But I’ve also always had a bit of a back up dream of riding him in the show jumping at the Adelaide Royal Show so we’ll see if doing both is possible. I’m also pretty excited about my two babies with Woody having a brilliant first year of competition and at only 4 years of age! We plan to step up to 80 early next year. And lastly Dylan will get a proper introduction to cross country over summer, hoping to get him out eventing also. He’s already showing good promise in the dressage and show jumping phases! So it will be exciting to see where he goes as he’s bred to go to the top!
Why do you choose Farmalogic products?
Because it’s the best…! I love the range of products; there is something for every need and I love the way it makes my horses look, feel and perform to their best ability both at home and out. I love that the products actually work! It may sound silly but they do exactly what they are supposed to do and make a noticeable difference.
How did you first get started on Farmalogic products?
I started using Equine Vit&Min Premium Blend back in 2014 when it first came out. I had been using another brand and I just wasn’t satisfied with the results. Back then EVM was trickier to source in South Australia but now it’s everywhere and the range has expanded hugely! I haven’t looked back since!
Which products do you use?
Equine Vit&Min Premium Blend, Farmalogic Grazaid, Farmalogic Rejuvenate, Farmalogic ReFlex, Farmalogic Melox and Farmalogic B-Good Paste. I love the EVM Premium Blend but my favourite products would have to be Grazaid and B-Good Paste. Grazaid is perfect for spring-time or any time where the grass or hay can make the horses a bit silly. Also the B-Good Paste is a competition essential for me, it is just perfect to take away the edge on dressage day so they can focus and perform to their best ability without worrying about everything else and getting hot! I used Replenish Electrolytes for Horses paste for the first time at our last event of 2020 due to it being warmer, so I’m looking forward to incorporating this product into our warmer competitions! I keep Farmalogic Melox on standby for when one of the boys needs an immune boost, same for the Omega Balancer if they need some extra shine.
