But just a few months ago it was a very different story for the handsome bay gelding Pumpkin, as he is known at home
Now 13-years-old, Pumpkin was prone to losing condition, struggled with muscle tone and generally gave the impression he was not not enjoying life.
Having met TopSpec Equine Advisor, Nic Read, at her local feed merchants, owner Katya Visser decided to change his diet to include TopSpec UlsaKind Cubes and he has never looked back.
Together with the help of her trainer Jane Whitton, Katya has put in many hours of work to transform Pumpkin from a sorry looking state to a picture of health with a spring to his step.
Said Katya: “This is for certain the best Pumpkin has looked in years, as he is at last gaining condition and muscle tone whilst also having a great shine to him.
“As a young horse he was very successful winning a lot of young event horse classes and rapidly rising up the ranks in the world of dressage.
“Unfortunately he had a bad fall going cross-country and it was after this that he went downhill, losing a lot of weight, becoming covered in sarcoids and showing obvious signs he had ulcers.
“Just getting near him was difficult and grooming him was almost impossible with the result that he was turned away in a field in the hope he would feel happier and start to recover.
“I was very fortunate to be gifted Pumpkin in the hope I could do something to help his condition and general wellbeing.
“It has been a slow process but the handling has improved enormously and once that started to progress I was keen to see if we could get more condition and topline on him.
“Thanks to the UlsaKind Cubes we saw some improvement in just a week and have now added TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer to his daily feed regime.
“I am so pleased with the results and am now planning to compete him in 1.15m classes now that he looks so well and is back on form, enjoying life to the full.”
TopSpec UlsaKind cubes recently won the BETA International Innovation Award for the best new feed or supplement on the British market.
