“I have a Welsh D mare called Amber (Moulin Rouge V) with whom I compete in Affiliated dressage at Elementary level (working towards medium) and have had some good results in the Petplan Area Festivals. She’s quite laid back and tends to lack energy and stamina, particularly during the summer months. I have to watch her weight carefully in the summer months, so can’t feed her too much, and I stable her at night in the summer to stop her eating too much grass.
She was being fed Hi-fi, formula 4 feet (which I used for years after my farrier told me my mare had sensitive lamina), horse & pony nuts and Hilton herbs d-tox (which helps her grass glands). My instructor was wanting me to try her on oats which I was reluctant to do as I had a Connemara I tried that with and it just made him buck. I decided instead to try her on a performance balancer rather than the formula 4 feet. I had a quick look online at other brands, but already had Blue Chip in mind – as although I have never used it, I know lots of people rave about Blue Chip Original.
The fact that the Blue Chip Pro included hoof supplements and antioxidants also made me feel better about moving away from the formula 4 feet, and versus some others performance balancers I looked at on-line, I was still convinced Blue Chip was the one for us. I started her on the Blue Chip Pro in July 2015, but unfortunately she went lame (deep bruising to hoof capsule) shortly after resulting in 3 months off. She came back into schooling work in November and now that she has got her fitness back and is on the Blue Chip Pro, she feels better than ever.
She has much more stamina, despite me only being able to ride 3 days a week in the winter. She’s even keen to have a gallop now rather than just lolloping along the field! I’m looking forward to getting her back out competing next month, and seeing if she maintains her new found energy once the warm weather comes.” -Kelly Watkin
