Your horse is an athlete: rest is the key to success
Throughout the year it is important for athletes to take a break and recuperate. After a top performance or
competition season, they need to slow down, rest and rebalance their body. This much-needed recovery period is also
essential for your horse, as competition-free weekends can be counted on the fingers of one hand nowadays. This is a
dangerous evolution, especially when you only have one or two horses. It is almost impossible to keep them in top
condition all year long, because continuously “pushing” a horse often results in fatigue and poor performance.
After importing a horse recently, he had an unexpected immune response to vaccinations. I was instructed by my veterinarian to get him on a lower protein diet where the grain had less processing and was "more like what they are used to naturally." Enter Cavalor. I contacted a dealer who put me in touch with a regional rep and she not only suggested Pianissimo, but also contacted founder Peter Bollen, who discussed the horse's situation with veterinarians at the University of Ghent and made further recommendations. All I can say, is WOW what an amazing company! We recently started slowly converting this horse's diet to the feed program recommended, and I can't wait to see the results. Thank you so very much for helping this incredible horse, and assisting us in connecting the last piece of the puzzle towards his successful future!
