Owned and bred by Pauline Holloway and ridden by her granddaughter Daisy Strang, she describes Ruwais as a ‘good, sound horse’ who was ‘not always producing optimum gut sounds at the vet gates.’
In a bid to try and solve the problem Pauline decided to look into Ruwais’ diet and she put a call in to the TopSpec feed helpline.
After a long chat with one of the nutritionists Pauline started to feed him TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer and TopSpec UlsaKind Cubes.
Said Pauline: “The feed really has made a big difference to Ruwais. After we started Ruwais on his new feeding regime he received almost all A’s for metabolics at the vet gate and we now feed our all horses on TopSpec.
“This season Daisy hopes to get Ruwais FEI qualified and to compete at 3* level. He is now 14-year-old and they have developed into a great partnership after Daisy took over the ride from her sister Victoria.
Ruwais and Daisy had a fantastic 2015 season finishing first at King’s Forest 80k, Cranwich 139k and the Royalties 172k.
At the EGB National Awards, Daisy and Ruwais also won the Top Part Bred Arab, Top Home Bred Horse and finished Reserve National Young Rider Champion.
