HORSE FIRST in Cannes!

rsz cannesPaddy is currently in Cannes at the Longines Global Champions Tour. If you happen to be in Cannes this week make sure and to look out for HORSE FIRST and find out more about our supplement range.

The Longines Global Champions Tour is an annual world-class show jumping championship series combining the world’s top outdoor show jumping events. The tour brings together the top 30 ranked riders in the world to compete in prestigious locations for unprecedented total season prize money of around €9 million (USD $12.5 million). Keep up to date with the all the latest news from the tour here.

Congratulations to Jodie Maher!

rsz jodieCongratulations to Jodie Maher, from Aberdeenshire, who has won the ‘HORSE FIRST Selfie’ competition.  Jodie will receive our competition ready hamper which includes Cuppra,  Saddle Cloth, RelaxMeNow syringes as well as other HORSE FIRST Goodies! Well done Jodie from all at HORSE FIRST.

Cuppra, is the ultimate copper top-up to bring the coat back to life. Copper deficiency is a common worry for horses so to combat this Cuppra, has a high copper availability for coat and conditioning. RelaxMeNow syringes have been developed to offer that boost of Relax Me when it is needed. The majority of the time, horses perform well on their normal feeding regime of Relax Me, however there are many instances when due to competition timetables, i.e. early feeds, travelling, course walking etc. when a boost of RelaxMeNOW two hours prior to the start of competition will really help.

Thank you to all who entered the competition we LOVED seeing all your pictures and please stay tuned for our next monthly competition!
