If Maria Rasmussen has one favorite aspect of horse training it is young horse development. Founder and trainer at Sea Change Farm of Wellington, Florida, Rasmussen has spent her time in the saddle since she was eight years old. With a family background in horses, the transition from young rider to professional was an obvious choice. She now heads up a successful show and training facility focused primarily on the hunter and equitation disciplines and while she has a variety of accomplished students and horses, she has found her passion in bringing up the next batch of top show horses.
After finding successful results early on in her trial with BoneKare, Rasmussen quickly determined the product to be a necessary added ingredient to the health and happiness of Sea Change Farm.
“We had a jumper that had come down the ranks from the grand prixs to the children’s jumpers and she had a lot of remodeling in her joints,” Rasmussen explained. “Our vet recommended we try BoneKare because it was getting harder to maintain her, and it helped a lot. We immediately noticed a difference and we were able to easily maintain her horse show to horse show which had been much harder pre-BoneKare.”
For Rasmussen, the key ingredients to developing strong and sound young horses involve a step-by-step process that emphasizes the importance of movement in their everyday life. Between flatting, lunging in the pessoa rig, one to two days of light jumping, and of course turnout, the horses of Sea Change Farm experience a full range of muscle use and with BoneKare’s support, they’ve developed healthy and strong.
“Once we noticed such a big difference in the jumper mare we had, we decided to transition everyone in the barn onto it,” she added. “I can say we have a really sound string of horses right now.”
