Gastric Ulcers - Case Study

Horse’s name (and stable name): Rumour Has It III (Dennis)

Rider:  Joe Trickett

Location: Shropshire

Colour: Bay

Sex: Gelding

Height: 16.3

Age: 7

Breed: Warm Blood


Dennis is a highly sensitive gelding that can be very reactive when ridden.  I noticed that Den was starting to struggle with lateral work and getting very tense and worried when out competing, I felt this was restricting his progress and development as well as some weight loss.

The Product

When I approached the team at Rowen Barbary explaining Dennis's behaviour they came up with a few different ideas and formulated a supplement, now known as Acti-Sooth, specifically for Den that they advised me to feed alongside Rowen Barbary Forage ‘n’ Fibre.  Although I am very pessimistic about the use of supplements, I soon noticed a dramatic change in behaviour and he was much more willing and cooperative to work.  I have been lucky enough to have been trialling this product for 10 months now which I believe Rowen Barbary will launch very soon!
