PERFECT FORMULA FOR ROBERT SMITH'S KALUSHA
International show jumper,
Robert Smith, has been using Formula4
on several of his top horses for the past couple of years and is a huge supporter
of the product.
One of the horses who have
seen significant benefits from Formula4
is Kalusha, the grey gelding who among his phenomenal international show jumping
accolades, helped Robert to secure the British Open title on two consecutive years.
Kalusha's notorious 'unpredictable'
character has made him a firm favourite with many of Robert's fans and he has
won everything from Grand Prix's to World Cup Qualifiers around the world.
Now 18 years old, this truly
magnificent campaigner is taking life slightly easier but still competes. "He
looks great," says Robert and goes on to explain, "Formula4
has played a big part in his soundness. We saw the benefits after 6-8 weeks of
as a feed supplement. Previously he didn't grow much foot and the hoof horn looked
far from healthy. He was down on his heels and flat footed which puts pressure
on the tendons. This is the last thing you want in any horse, but especially a
show jumper who needs to master the big tracks.
In fact, Kalusha's pedal
bone was close to dropping and his soles were very soft. It was the McCloskeys
who owned Mr Springfield who recommended we tried Formula4
I'm usually cynical about such products but we noticed the difference very quickly.
Thankfully, that has all been corrected and he appears to be super-sound which
is unusual for a horse that has competed as much as Kalusha has over the years."
Thanks to Formula4
the condition of Kalusha's hooves is now very healthy much to the delight of his
