Before After

This year I'm going to turn Cruz Bay, my three-quarters Thoroughbred gelding, into a calm horse. I only have myself to blame for my ten year old's problem: he’s terrified of other horses in the warm-up arena at shows.  

For more background please see my blog site

Cruz has been on Ultium for the last three years, but now I was looking for something to calm him down while still providing the energy and nutrients he needs.

After researching the internet and reading horse owners’ feedback on various feeds, I became interested in an Australian product called 

I just want to update you on Cruz Bay's progress with Coolstance. 

Although the weather is making it impossible to ride regularly, I have managed to work him on and off. 

I've been doing things to desensitize him. He now allows me to throw nerf balls at him in his stall, ride him over a blue tarp, and open and close umbrellas next to him as well as hold them over his head. I've been amazed at how well he is adapting.

Two days ago came further proof of how much calmer his is, when I was able to ride him while a friend drove the tractor in the field next to us, coming towards us constantly, with the bucket right up in the air. At one point, before I mounted him, he raised his head and was set to take off in fear because the big bad tractor was coming for him. I offered him a treat and he immediately calmed down. The moment of anxiety was gone before it came. This was already incredible! 

Then I rode him in the arena and he didn't bat an eyelid when the tractor came alongside him or towards him, or when a cyclist came by on his other side. I was so thrilled I wanted to cry! 

Next month Rick Pelicano, a renowned Maryland Mounted Policeman who trains police horses and has written two books on bombproofing horses (one of which I have) is coming to my neighbor to give one of his famous bombproofing clinics. It will involve, among other things, walking through hanging plastic strips and next to smoke bombs. I am needless to say, going to take Cruz. This will be the ultimate test of how well he does with eleven other horses and the weird stuff he has to deal with! 

Cruz is on the feed 100% now and I truly believe it is making a huge difference. For the first time in three years I am hopeful that I can have a well-balanced horse whom I'll soon be able to take to major shows. 

I'll keep you posted! If you're interested, the clinic is on 27th March, from 9 to 12 on the land opposite my house. 

Thanks again for such a great product. Those at the clinic know Cruz well, so hopefully he'll behave well and I can spread the word about CoolStance! 

 Best regards,
