Why Serious Horse Person Chester Weber Uses SUCCEED®

Chester Weber

The U.S.’s four-in-hand driving star Chester Weber is a decorated horseman in combined driving events both nationally and internationally. He and his elite team of warmbloods maintain a packed competition schedule. A triathalon-style event, combined driving demands perfect synchronization over three vastly different phases including dressage, cross-country, and an intricate cones course.

Stamina and agility are requisite for the fast-paced sport. Chester knows his horses compete successfully and safely when supported with SUCCEED.

Chester Weber’s Horses are More Competitive on SUCCEED®

International travel and the rigors of competition test a horse’s wellness. Despite every effort to carefully monitor the nutritional regimen for his team, Chester noticed lackluster appetites during travel from several horses in 2006, which is when he discovered SUCCEED and tested it out.

“Within three weeks there was a visible difference. You could easily tell which horses were on SUCCEED, just from their appearance,” Weber said.


Convinced by the results, Chester started giving all of his horses SUCCEED. His team now maintains their appetites and their weight at competitions, an essential feat for an active season. Proper energy and nutrition, a result of optimal digestive health, is a winning combination for Chester.

We weigh our horses twice per month and adjust their hay rations accordingly, and since we’ve been feeding SUCCEED we’ve seen objective proof that our horses maintain better weight at competitions. We need them to maintain mass when they’re mid-season, so we do anything we can to keep them interested in the feed tub. We’d stand on our heads every day if it would help!

“I am certainly impressed with this product. My horses regularly travel overseas and compete under extreme conditions. SUCCEED helps to keep them healthy and focused, which gives them an advantage in competition.
