Years training: 25
Horses in work: 30
We have been using Equissage Therapy on our trotters for 10 years now, and the results speak for themselves.
Since 2001, we have won more Group 1 races than any other trainer. One of our horses – Sundons Gift, whilst now retired – is still the richest and fastest trotter ever in this country, and enjoyed the therapeutic benefits of Equissage everyday during his racing career – and the fact he was still winning at Group 1 level as a nine year old is testament to his soundness over a long period of time at the highest level, including the 2009 running of the Elitlopp in Sweden.
We have recently upgraded our four Equissage sets to the new ‘Series 12’ model; such is our belief in the general maintenance benefits of the Equissage system. We believe prevention is better than cure when it comes to racing sound horses and the daily use of Equissage helps us to achieve this.
‘Shes an Image’ – 2/3year old Australian Horse of the Year, is prone to tying-up (azoturia) – since using the new pulse (Cyclopolymodulation) setting we have been able to manage this a lot easier and she is still going good as a four year old.
‘Aldebaran Shades’ – is a Group 1 winner, with 26 starts for 15 wins, but he is a highly strung/nervous horse – we use the new Tranquilssage setting on him everyday to help him relax as much as possible.
With regular use of Equissage, our horses are generally more relaxed and their muscles always seem more supple. This becomes very important at the end of a race when there is not much between winning and losing. We also love the fact that there are no side affects – other than the beneficial ones, and it is such a simple and user-friendly system that anyone can operate.
