NSR’s Show Horses More Responsive on SUCCEED®
Nancy first heard about SUCCEED in January 2005. At the time, she had a difficult gelding in her barn who was very anxious and nervous. She says he was constantly grinding his teeth, pinning his ears and showed hatred of both his job and the show pen. After picking up some literature on SUCCEED, she and the gelding’s owners talked it over and decided to try SUCCEED for three months.
It ended up being the best thing we’d ever done for this horse,” Nancy says. “It changed everything about him. He became a great show horse. He’s gone and has been competitive at the Quarter Horse shows now. Prior to the product, his nerves overrode every instinct that he needed to have to be able to show. After he was on SUCCEED we were able to show him, sell him to a Youth child, and they’ve gone on and been very successful and made top 10 at the world championship shows. I keep all my show horses on SUCCEED on a daily basis.
“With SUCCEED I have found that our show horses are far better and far more responsive to our training. It’s a very tough industry and very expensive industry, and so to put my show horses on SUCCEED, it’s the cheapest thing i can do to help myself in the show arena.”
