International Grand Prix rider Tory Ketchum knows a thing or two about nutrition and fitness. An avid athlete who emphasizes nutrition’s role in her own success, Ketchum equally honors the importance of a healthy diet for her horses. Based out of Wellington, FL where she owns and operates Copperline Farm LLC, Ketchum’s area of expertise ranges from young horse development up to international show jumping competition. She began riding at a young age and, after a short break, went full force into the sport where she competes mainly in the Amateur Jumper divisions, open divisions, and international classes.
With a current string of top competitive mounts from the six year old young jumpers up to the four-star international level, she has found that proper supplementation plays a crucial role in the success of each mount.
“Nutrition is a huge part of my own life, and I think that having them on a very good nutrition supplementation program is very important for keeping them sound and happy and healthy,” explained Ketchum. “We ask a tremendous amount of these horses and the amount of pressure is really significant. I think having the proper program is important and BoneKare has been a staple for us for a long time.”
After turning to BoneKare at the advice of her vet to heal a bad bone bruise sustained in competition, she continued to research more into the product and found a wealth of evidence that it serves as beneficial for both current injuries and the prevention of future issues as well. She immediately made the decision to add the product to the roster for the entire string and has had a successful working relationship with the company ever since.
“With managing the horses I do and being on the road it’s really important to have people behind you that want the same things,” Ketchum added. “They strive for your horses to be healthy and successful and by working with them directly you get that. It’s not something you get with every company so it’s really nice!”
BoneKare is the only supplement of its kind on the market. Recommended by users and veterinarians alike, the product is beneficial to horses in various scenarios including –
- Horses whose daily diet lacks fresh, quality green pastures
- Horses with neck, shoulder and back issues
- Horses with pre-existing or at-risk of bone disorders and injuries

- Developing and aging equines
