Sponsored Para-Equestrian Wins National Reserve ChampionshipBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · June 17, 2014
Mary Jordan, a para-equestrian dressage rider sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research, sent a note to the KER staff after competing in the selection trials for the para-equestrian team that will represent the U.S. at the World Equestrian Games later this year.
Mary rides a 1993 Hanoverian gelding named Sebastian, who stays fit on Ovation sport horse feed designed by KER. He also is given a number of nutritional supplements to support joint health, neuromuscular function, and electrolyte balance. Mary and Sebastian are currently on the short list for the competition. She says:
I just wanted to thank all of you. Sebastian and I performed really well at the U.S. Selection Trials and are on the short list for this year’s WEG. We were also named national reserve champion in the Grade 4 competition.
Sebastian is a KER poster child, as Ovation and a slew of supplements have transformed his health and his athletic performance. He is on KER-Flex, E0-3, Restore, Synovate, and Nano-E. He really looks fabulous and in my mind that is due to the application of all of your research to his nutritional program.
I got this horse when he was 18 years old, put him on the program, and he has competed more than any other para-equestrian horse in the U.S., completing three national championships and winning two of them; completing and winning most of five CPEDI3*s; and completing many able-body dressage competitions at Third Level. He was the top WEG qualifier for 2013 and 2014, and was an alternate for the Paralympics in 2012 and WEG in 2010. Thank you!
