Have you trained or coached any riders who have had success?

For a number of years I have been running clinics where the riders ability range from beginners to advanced. The focus of my clinics is to work closely with each individual. I always hope that they can achieve success in their own way.

They should always be well fed and watered, especially during travel.

Which Pryde’s feeds do you use and why do you like them?:

EasiRide & 200 Pellet. All have specific benefits. We use BioMare Cubes the most, it is a great all round conditioner without the energy. The big cubes allow the horses to clean up any dropped feed too.
