Courtney Chappell’s Pleasure Horses Show on SUCCEED

Courtney Chappell, Spurz N DiamondsFor Courtney Chappell, the horse of a lifetime came along in 1997 as a tall Quarter Horse stallion named Hot N Blazing. As a two-year-old, “Blaze” was already a looker, and showed great talent for both English and Western events. After a hugely successful show career that included several Quarter Horse Congress Championship titles and World Championships, Hot N Blazing began siring foals, many of which went on to win their own championship titles.

When Courtney arrives at the National Snaffle Bit Association show in Tulsa today, she’ll do so with one of Hot N Blazing’s fillies, Spurz N Diamonds. The bay-colored three-year-old closely resembles her sire, and with Nancy Sue Ryan on her back (the top horsewoman also trained and rode Hot N Blazing) and an impressive collection of Congress wins to her name, Spurz N Diamonds already seems likely to follow in Blaze’s hoofprints.

Nancy Sue and the filly won six classes at last year’s NSBA World Show; this year, Courtney will be showing in the 3-year-old non-professional hunter-under-saddle class, and Nancy Sue will show the filly in the 3-year-old open hunter-under-saddle class.

All Courtney’s Show Horses Kept Healthy on SUCCEED

Nancy Sue Ryan has had a significant impact on Courtney’s show circuit trajectory, and in addition to training and riding Blaze and showing Spurz N Diamonds, also introduced Courtney to SUCCEED. A SUCCEED sponsored rider herself, Nancy Sue recommended the digestive supplement to Courtney in 2010.

“We always worry about our horses’ digestive health when they’re on the road so much, so we keep all of our show horses on SUCCEED,” Courtney says. “It’s a great supportive measure to take, as we absolutely understand that good digestive health is an important part of having a healthy horse.”

Courtney says she quickly notices that the horses on SUCCEED have shinier coats and are generally better behaved.

“When our horses feel good, they perform better,” she says. “The show circuit isn’t a natural environment for horses, so they need something to help them stay on top — and that’s where we turn to SUCCEED.”

Regular Digestive Support for a Healthier Horse

Courtney Chappell knows the importance of keeping her pleasure horses’ guts healthy, particularly with the added challenges of traveling and competing. Keeping a horse healthy on the road always starts at home. By providing regular digestive support, your horses will be stronger, healthier, and better able to handle the rigors of showing.
