“The Aerotech Saddle Pads are wickedly breathable, and light, which is so important for our top level horses when out on XC. Impresaivley the matching ears don’t just look gorgeous, they are easily interchanged from sound proof to normal in one swift action, which means all the horses in our team can look flash regardless of what type of ears they prefer.”

Team DSE is delighted to introduce Janie & her wonderful Chaff business “Golden Horse Feeds” as an official Sponsor.
We are excited to be ambassadors for this 100% Natural Chaff Product, and to work with and support a local business. Our team runs on their Lucerne Chaff product.
Golden Horse Feeds started as a small operation using a very old chaffing machine called “Gracie”, and have now taken the original cutting mechanism used more than 100 years ago and are using it as a more modernised sister.
Janie & her team are fastidious about the importance of maintaining the integrity and freshness of their chaff, and therefore providing a high grade product to the most important consumers of all – our horses!

Donna Smith Eventing would like to thank Alex and Platinum Performance who currently provide her team with Platinum Performance Equine, a comprehensive nutrition formula for all horses.
Platinum Performance addresses equine health at the cellular level, providing a special blend of more than 55 nutrients that improves the fundamental health of each of your horse’s 12 trillion cells. Healthy cells mean a healthy horse.
“A comprehensive formula that improves my horses overall health, helping joints, hooves, bones, coats, digestive & immune support. Plus it’s great for the senior members, performance horses as it acts as an anti-inflammatory.”
Using Dynavyte in the appropriate doses may be beneficial in:
- Stabilising the micro flora in the gut which may lead to an improvement in the animals behaviour
- Assisting in improving food conversion which may lead to a reduction in feed costs
- Boosting the immune system which may assist in allowing performance animals to cope with workloads
- Supporting broodmares and foals with their nutritional requirements in times of stress and need.
“Horses that struggle to put on weight are holding their weight so much better and also are producing a top line.”
