Chester Weber Wins 12th National Combined Driving ChampionshipBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · October 5, 2015
KER-sponsored equestrian Chester Weber has won his 12th USEF Four-in-Hand Driving National Championship with a victory at the CAI2* Kentucky Classic CDE.
Wet weather led to the dressage and cones portions of the event being moved to the Rolex Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park, instead of the usual turf venue. Weber was competing several new and younger horses. A score of 38.07 gave the team a nearly 10-point lead after the dressage portion.
“It was exciting to have the younger horses do so well and the Rolex Stadium had a nice feel,” Weber said.
Sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research (KER), Weber says, “The nutrition of our horses is critical. We use KER products to make sure the entire team is nutritionally prepared for grueling cross-country courses, which can take an hour and a half to complete.”
Restore SR uses an advanced technology that releases sodium gradually rather than all at once, allowing horses to absorb it slowly over a period of several hours.
“We can’t stop during the cross-country to re-energize horses, so it’s important to have a slow-release electrolyte supplement that we know will help maximize the performance of our horses,” Weber said.
Weber also uses the KER ClockIt Sport mobile application to track his horses’ conditioning programs.
