Davidson Starts Strong in 2015 Eventing SeasonBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · January 26, 2015
To stay at the top in the sport of eventing, you have to have experienced horses that can compete at the upper level as well as plenty of younger equines that are still learning the game in the lower divisions. Having a number of horses in training means riding multiple entries in some events, making for long days but sometimes bringing home a basket of ribbons.
Bruce “Buck” Davidson, Jr. got an early start on the 2015 eventing season at the Rocking Horse Winter I Horse Trials, claiming four of the top six spots in the Open Intermediate A division as well as first and sixth places in Open Intermediate B.
He also finished fourth in Preliminary Horse B, second in Open Preliminary C, second in Open Preliminary B, and third in Open Preliminary A.
In the Training Horse B division, Buck finished in second place, three spots higher than his father, Bruce Davidson, Sr.
Both Bruce and Buck are sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research (KER). To keep their event horses in good condition for a busy competition schedule, they count on feed products from KER. These products, such as Ovation, are formulated to provide manageable energy for performance as well as nutrients to help horses recover after strenuous exercise.
