Leslie and Lesley Law Saw Digestive Health Help Their Horses In Different Ways

Leslie Law and Lesley Grant-Law have more in common than just their names. Both are accomplished three-day eventers with a growing list of achievements. Leslie took home an individual gold with the British eventing team in 2004 at Athens, while Lesley was short-listed for the 2008 games in Hong Kong with the Canadian team. And together, this equestrian couple have discovered the benefits of optimal digestive health in their horses.

One of Leslie’s advanced horses, Mystere du Val, had always been a hard keeper. “He just never really looked his best,” Leslie says now. “He always was lean, and we couldn’t get him to fill out. We tried everything.”

Things changed in February, 2008. “Our vet recommended SUCCEED®. She’d heard good things about it and thought it was worth trying. So we gave it a shot.”

“Within a few weeks, he really improved. His coat looked better, and he gained weight nicely.”

Months later, as a member of the Canadian team, Lesley was given the opportunity to try SUCCEED for her horse, Timber Spirit. But, she had some apprehension. “Mystere du Val needed to gain weight, and SUCCEED helped. But Timber Spirit is a very easy keeper. Would SUCCEED put weight on him too?”

Lesley started her horse on SUCCEED, and was pleased with the results. “After using SUCCEED, Timber Spirit really looked better all the way around. We traveled from the northern US to Florida for training camp. He kept his condition the whole time. No issues. Clearly, SUCCEED helps a horse’s digestion so it gets what it needs, whatever that may be.”

The couple use SUCCEED on all their top horses now. “We have horses of all ages and breeds on SUCCEED, and it really works well for all of them, meeting their particular needs.

Together, Leslie and Lesley have discovered that SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program is important for all horses facing the rigors of performance. SUCCEED is a Functional Feed™ program that provides essential nutrients to support the health of the entire digestive tract. And the benefits can be seen in the horse’s appearance, temperament and performance.

“SUCCEED is part of our program now, because we want our horses to have every advantage,” says Leslie.

“And SUCCEED gives them that.”

“It’s phenomenal,” adds Lesley. “We absolutely love this product.”
