Testimonial: Gus

Gus, aka Heldon Sparticus, is a 21- year-old Hackney. He is owned by Rachel Lowry and still competes on a regular basis. The pair have concentrated mainly on dressage but have given showing a go this year with some success. Rachel and Gus have been placed at Equifest - taking reserve ridden 15+ Country Champion - and have been put through to the regionals of the VHS at Olympia.

Rachel has always fed Gus and her other horses a fibre-only diet of Dengie Hi-Fi Original and Alfalfa Pellets. "I like that I can increase the quantity of pellets to give extra oomph when necessary, without the need to incorporate hard feed into their diets, as this heats them up,” she says.
