From Horsetrader sales staff - December 28th, 2018 - Ingate Column

wordpress_column_ingateChelsey Berkstresser has joined the team at GGT-Footing, and her enthusiastic attitude and knowledge of western riding disciplines will help spread the benefits of the GGT’s great products into the western pleasure and western markets. Growing up in the horse industry with a grandfather who bred Quarter Horses and Appaloosas, Chelsea is no newcomer to the equine industry. She showed Western Pleasure as a young girl before turning to working cow horse. In 2009, she represented the state of Pennsylvania and the PRCA as Miss Rodeo Pennsylvania. She currently competes in working cow horse events and is a show producer for the RSTPA.

Meanwhile, GGT-Footing anticipates its groomers will revolutionize the ease and effectiveness of keeping arena footings in their best condition. They were developed especially for the care and levelling of uneven surfaces and geotextile soils as well as for sandy underground. Their construction is robust, and the handling is easy. Because of their compact and modular design, the device requires little space and offers one of the best price/performance ratios on the market.

It easily connects to small and medium size tractors, ATV’s and even lawn tractors because of the height-adjustable chassis. Pre-orders are now being taken and units are priced from $2,100 to $6,500.

For over 20 years GGT-Footing has been supplying equestrian arenas worldwide with arena footing additives. Used at world-class facilities and private farms all over the world, GGT offers dust-free footing, Butterfly Matting systems (for the riding arena base) and arena conditioners to help keep arenas in top performance shape. The company’s mission is to offer protection for equine athletes that give so much to their riders and owners.

With 60 percent of lameness problems in horses related to joint deterioration, its important to help support your horse’s joints from the inside out. No matter your horse’s age or workload, the best time to start supporting your best friend’s joints is now.

There is no cure for joint deterioration, and it will continue to get worse once it starts. But there are ways you can help your horse! One way to support your horse is with a joint supplement that provides a steady supply of the ingredients he needs to cope with normal wear and tear from exercise and activity.

“While every horse is at risk for joint deterioration, there are ways that horse owners can be proactive in their horse’s health,” said Dr. Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s Staff Veterinarian/Medical Director. “Joint Health Awareness Month is designed to provide horse owners with the insight and information they need to help them better understand their horse’s joint health and how they can support it moving forward.

“Many joint supplements have the classically thought of ingredients, such as glucosamine, chondroitin, and HA, which are backed by clinical research,” added Gray. “But there are also many new and exciting ingredients out there being studied such as resveratrol, avocado/soybean unsaponifiables (ASU), collagen, and turmeric which all offer additional benefits.”

To celebrate Joint Health Awareness Month, SmartPak has teamed up with some of its customers’ favorite brands to offer exclusive deals on joint supplements. Along with SmartPak’s own SmartSupplements, there will be special deals on joint formulas from Cosequin®, Equithrive and more.
