Full time student, Emily Hancock, has a great partnership with her grey mare, 17-year-old Phoebe. A Dutch Warmblood, Phoebe is a former show jumper and they have been together for just over a year. The pair now enjoy a variety of activities including cross-country, dressage, fun rides, jumping and hacking.
They also recently affiliated in showing with the Veteran Horse Society and enjoy competing in their classes. At 17-years-old, Emily was keen to ensure Phoebe diet was suitable for her age and activity and has followed a specific feeding plan designed the help of the team at TopSpec.
Phoebe is maintained on TopSpec Senior Lite Feed Balancer and TopChop Lite over the summer months as she is a good doer and can be hot to ride. Said Emily: “Phoebe is such a special horse and a pleasure to ride; she is very forward though, so I use ‘Non-Heating’ products from the TopSpec range, including TopSpec CoolCondition Cubes over the winter when she needs a bit extra in the colder weather.”
Emily is in her final year at Hartpury College studying Bioveterinary Science and is looking forward to starting vet school next year. “I feel very lucky to have Phoebe by my side whilst I am studying; we have so much fun together,” added Emily.
