I am extremely grateful to be an ambassador for Saracen Horse Feeds. I have fed Saracen for approximately 15 years, using their whole performance range, and in particular Releve which is a cereal free feed for competition horses, providing all the protein and nutrients that the horses need to perform, without making them silly, and hugely reducing the risks of tying up and other starch related problems. This has been a brilliant feed for Doonaveeragh Emma who can be very hot if fed a high starch diet, whereas Releve provides her with everything she needs without making her hot. Askeaton and Hurricane Heidi also have Releve, whilst Kvint, who is a big horse with a calm temperament has Competition Fit Cubes. All the horses have Stamm 30, and excellent all round feed-balancer. We also use Equi-jewel for all our youngsters, and for any horses that lack condition or top-line. Equi-jewel is a high fat feed which provides slow-release energy and helps horses gain condition without making them silly. We generally use Cooling Mix with Herbs or Livery Pencils for horses that are in medium work. The youngsters start on a very low amount of hard feed, probably chaff and sugar beet, which is supplemented by Stamm 30, an excellent all round feed-balancer and Equi-jewel to help maintain condition. Depending on temperament and work I then introduce Releve or Livery Pencils as their work level increases.
I am really lucky to be supported by the team at Stride Management. With many years of working in the equestrian world, PR, event management and property management Jess, Pippa and Justine between them are ideally placed to represent both competitors and equestrian brands. With their excellent knowledge of all aspects of the Equestrian World, IT skills and complete understanding of social media they provide invaluable support and advice. Having their support in 2018 has not only helped me with my sponsors, but also helped me raise my profile by encouraging me to write more articles and to use social media more effectively. I would highly recommend them both to riders and to equestrian brands. They have a complete understanding of what it takes to compete at a high level and of marketing and PR, so make the perfect link between these two worlds.
I am so pleased to be supported by MacWet Gloves, who keep me well stocked up with their fantastic gloves. I have used MacWet gloves for almost 10 years now and wouldn’t use any other gloves whatever the weather. I am never too hot, or too cold, and I never, ever lose my grip on the reins in these excellent gloves.

It is the first of it’s kind that targets the joints, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, hooves and bone.
I have been using this solution on my top two horses, Doonaveeragh Emma and Kvint since they came back into work on 1st November, and have been very impressed with how fantastic they feel, and how well they presented at their annual veterinary check-up. I very much look forward to working with Precision over the coming season and very much appreciate the support they are giving me and the horses.
