When Eventer Alice Hirst went searching for an answer to her horse’s fluctuating condition, she not only found the solution, but the opportunity to forge a long and successful partnership with Kelato Animal Health.
The twenty year old Tasmanian comes from a family of riders and caught the eventing bug at the ripe old age of seven. With an ever growing list of achievements, her goal is to compete 2* at the Australian International 3 Day Event in Adelaide next year.
How did you hear about ZanoBOLIC concentrate?
I was speaking to Kelato representative, Sharni Officer at the Melbourne 3DE in 2013, we were having trouble keeping condition on my thoroughbred Mighty William and were at our wits end, Sharni suggested ZanoBOLIC concentrate and we gave it a try.
What problems were you having with Mighty William and how did ZanoBOLIC help?
In the period of a couple of months we travelled from Tasmania to Sydney for a 1*, then went all the way home then back over the Strait for the MI3DE. It just really took its toll on him and despite filling him with food and trying all sorts of muscle building supplements, which he wouldn’t eat due to bulk and taste, we couldn’t keep his weight on. After speaking with Sharni we introduced ZanoBOLIC concentrate and immediately saw an unbelievable change. It was SO much easier to build muscle and Mighty William kept his weight on so much better.
Has the improvement been consistent?
Absolutely, our next trip was over to the Avenal HT for the 2* and Mighty William looked amazing. Despite a tough preparation due to limited events and the weather being terrible, he looked better than he ever had and we completed our first mainland 2* with awesome success!
Will you continue to use ZanoBOLIC concentrate?
All of my main competition horses are now on this wonder powder and all look unbelievable as a result. The best part is the minimal amount you have to feed, it’s only about a teaspoon morning and night. They also love it due to it tasting like icing sugar, they eat it right out of your hand! I recommend this product to all of my clients and students as a great tool for all horses, from pony club to high level eventers, show jumpers and dressage riders. It’s truly a great product.
