John Rannenberg Arabians Find SUCCEED® Success

John Rannenberg was just 26 when he became the resident trainer at Rohara Arabians. Rohara founder Roxann Hart is delighted to point out that Rannenberg won his first National Championship within a year after his arrival at the well-known Florida Arabian breeding and training facility.

Twenty years later, Rannenberg is still head trainer at Rohara and his reputation and Rohara’s have kept pace over the years. Their mutual rise to fame in the Arabian horse world has set new standards for quality Arabian horses and professional achievement.

Rannenberg is most proud of his ability to achieve success in many different divisions. Rohara has seen National Championships in halter, English and country pleasure, driving, western and hunter pleasure, native costume, saddle seat equitation and park. A breeder since 1987, Rannenberg and Rohara have frequently enjoyed being the breeders, owners and trainers of their noted winners.

Rannenberg and the entire staff at Rohara work diligently to get the best from their horses. An accomplished judge who has presided over major shows in the U.S. and Australia, Rannenberg understands that the health of every horse in his care is of paramount importance.

“I believe that horses need to be comfortable in order to perform at their best,” Rannenberg said.

The Discovery

Rannenberg is always on the lookout for ways to help support good health for his horses. When one of his clients, whose husband is a veterinarian, came to him with the idea to try SUCCEED® Digestive Conditioning Program® from Freedom Health, LLC. Rannenberg decided to be among the first trainers in the country to use the product.

“I saw a change in less than a week after I began using SUCCEED,” Rannenberg said. “One of my best English Pleasure horses is very high strung and sensitive. She wants things her way and can be very difficult. The difference with her on SUCCEED has been dramatic. She really enjoys her work now and has become much easier to train.”

Rannenberg also decided to try SUCCEED on one of Rohara’s mightiest champions, the stallion Good Thunder.

“A multi-national champion in several divisions, Good Thunder is an older horse who began to experience stress at the shows and decided to quit. It was totally out of character for this horse and very upsetting. After several days of SUCCEED, his attitude, desire and performance improved dramatically and he went on to yet another national championship.”

Results

Rannenberg is sold on the value of SUCCEED for all of his horses. He now keeps his entire show string on the product, making sure they each get their serving every day.

“I recommend SUCCEED across the board for all types of working show horses and any horse dealing with the tough demands of the show horse life.”
