Harvey’s going for gold with ticket for HOYS
Lincolnshire based young showjumper, Zoe Smith (13) has secured her ticket for HOYS with the well known 148cm showjumping pony, Gold Harvest, who is still going strong at the amazing age of 27.
Owned by Regan Whillet, Harvey as he is known at home, is in great health in his golden years and proving he is still at his peak qualifying with a double clear in the 148cm Showjumper of the Year qualifier at Bishop Burton.
Said Zoe: “Harvey is possibly the oldest 148cm pony to qualify for HOYS. This is only our first year at this level and even more remarkable given Harvey’s age.
“He is fed on TopSpec Senior Feed Balancer, he is the picture of health and looks stunning despite his age.
“Everyone who watches Harvey comments on his health and we are so pleased that he is still out there competing.”
Zoe and Harvey have also qualified for this year’s Plevin British Showjumping Scope Festival and will be part of the English Team at the Scottish Home Pony International.
TopSpec Senior Feed Balancer is a very palatable ‘Non-Heating’ feed that contains several supplements including the levels of micronutrients and digestive aids normally only found in high quality specialised supplements.
Of particular importance to elderly horses is the inclusion of micronutrients known to help maintain mobility.
The scientifically recommended rate of 10grams of glucosamine/500kg horse/day is a key feature of the mobility supplement included in this formula.
This superb specification allows elderly horses to utilise far more nutrients from the forage and straights in their diet, which often means that their hard feed intake can be reduced with many resulting benefits.
Using TopSpec Senior Feed Balancer will also promote muscle development and topline, which often starts to decline as horses’ age.
Feeding it will help to maintain good hoof quality and promote a supple skin with a shiny coat.
TopSpec Senior Feed Balancer helps to maintain a healthy immune system and also includes a highly available source of vitamin C to help maintain healthy lung tissue.
Feeding it may also lead to a calmer temperament in horses and ponies.
