“I used the stress paste 2x daily for my trip to Adelaide 3DE as well as my usual daily use of Digestive EQ, before I left and when I arrived. I did the trip for the first time in one hit so driving time was 15.5 hrs.
When arriving I had the body work man that has seen Heidi (Oaks Cordelia) before lined up for a treatment. I arrived 3 hrs prior to the treatment and had a short ride before he looked at Heidi, but he said to me that she was ‘the best horse he had seen that day’ and could not believe how good her muscles felt after such a long trip, he had very little to treat. Being 17 hands she normally comes off the truck a little stiff.
I then used the paste once each day and Heidi ate both morning and night during the whole trip, she also maintained a relaxed happy attitude all comp.
Cross country day I gave her 2x paste, one early morning and one about 6 pm. Heidi recovered the quickest she ever has. Her heart rate was very quick to recover (this is not uncommon for her) but her temp was the most impressive, it dropped more quickly than ever before, she normally runs very hot and it normally takes her a long time to cool, this time it was about half as long.
Her recovery continued to impress me as the day went on with both me and the high performance vets seriously impressed with how bright and sound she was in all our trot up checks, at 8 pm, 11 pm and the 5.30 am Sunday.
She then continued to feel great show jump day where she was the best show jump round of the day, calm careful and bright.”
