Her contributions to eventing and horsemanship don’t stop there, however.

Lucinda Green Recommends SUCCEED®
For Lucinda, SUCCEED equals peace of mind.
“SUCCEED is not just for the horse, it’s for me. There are so many things about the horse’s digestive tract that we don’t understand and can’t see. If they’re out 24/7 doing nothing, I don’t worry. But as soon as a horse is off pasture and put in training, competing, showing and on grain I know that the digestive system is challenged. SUCCEED means that all those bits that I don’t see and can’t control otherwise are under control.”
Nutrition is a big part of what Lucinda teaches in her clinics, as she sees many horses that she can tell just “aren’t right.” She encourages her students that if a horse is misbehaving and it’s hoof and joints are well, something on the inside could be improved.
When it comes to handling her own horses, Lucinda shares, “As far as our management is concerned all we care about is pure feed, good quality forage and SUCCEED.”
