Where #SeriousHorsePeople come to better understand digestive health in horses and its impact and management.

Winners of the 2008 USEA National SUCCEED Challenge Series

Freedom Health, LLC, is proud to announce the winners of the 2008 United States Eventing Association (USEA) SUCCEED Challenge Series. This incentive program was open to USEA members competing in the Adequan Gold Cup Series Events who use SUCCEED to foster optimum digestive health in their horses – thus supporting overall well-being and performance.

At the USEA Annual Convention in New Orleans, Elissa Estes and Alexandra Knowles will be recognized respectively as the winner and runner-up of the Intermediate division in the SUCCEED Challenge Series. Estes of Lexington, KY has been using SUCCEED for over a year and described it as “the only product I have ever used that has done exactly what it claimed to do.” Estes will take home a check for $1500 along with a case of SUCCEED, while Knowles will collect $500 and a case of SUCCEED.

We wanted to develop a program that both rewards current SUCCEED DCP consumers and  encourages new users to experience the benefits of the product. A competitive incentive program is a natural fit for  SUCCEED DCP, which supports the overall health and well-being of the performance horse.

SUCCEED DCP is scientifically formulated to support the health and structure of the equine digestive system – the fuel line that powers every other system in the horse’s body. The strenuous phases of a three-day event competition – dressage, cross country and stadium jumping – require a horse to be in peak physical and mental condition to perform at its best. A horse that may be affected by  discomfort or a sour attitude due to digestive issues would not be able to jump as freely or collect and extend as easily without these problems. By fostering a healthy digestive tract with SUCCEED DCP, owners and riders may see improvements in other aspects of overall well-being and performance – such as behavior, trainability and athletic ability.

SUCCEED DCP became an official product of the USEF in 2008 and was used extensively by United States Equestrian Team members on their horses in preparation for the games in Beijing. The SUCCEED Challenge Series may be extended to eventing and dressage organizations around the country.
