Weber Sets Another Record to Continue TraditionBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · March 20, 2014
At the recent Kingdom of the Sun Combined Driving Event held in Orlando, Florida, KER-sponsored equestrian Chester Weber guided his four-in-hand Warmblood geldings to a first-place finish in the Advanced Horse Team division. Weber, who has a tradition of breaking his own records in dressage, earned a score of 30.89 to take the lead with a new world mark. He maintained top placing in the marathon and cones phases of the event to finish with a blue ribbon.
The Kingdom of the Sun CDE was an unofficial stepping stone toward the World Equestrian Games to be held in France in late summer. Though not a selection event, the competition provided another step in training horses and drivers for top competitions.
Weber, who has won the title of U.S. National Driving Champion ten times, is sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research. To keep his horses healthy and in condition through their rigorous schedule of exercise, travel, and competition, Weber uses Nano-E, a powerful antioxidant that supports cardiovascular and muscular function. He also gives his horses Restore, a specially formulated electrolyte supplement designed to match the composition of sweat. Restore is available in paste or powder form to suit different horses and management styles.
