Balmoral Show 2017 saw the introduction of a fourth day, meaning the addition of a host of new classes. Bluegrass Horse Feeds were delighted to undertake the sponsorship of the New Team Schools Show Jumping Championship.
With qualifiers for this final taking place throughout Ireland from towards the end of 2016, the best 13 teams in the country fought it out in the prestigious main arena on the Saturday of the show.
The jumping was incredibly competitive, with some blisteringly fast rounds on the clocks. In the end Banbridge Academy took the inaugural trophy, narrowly snatching the victory from The Royal School Armagh
Bluegrass Horse Feeds would like to congratulate all the teams who qualified, and special congratulations to Alex Finney, Ellie Humphries, Ella McCallister and Charlotte Eakin on taking the victory. Bluegrass thank all the schools for their support and we look forward to next year’s qualifiers and final.

Equine experts widely advocate pasture access for maximizing the health of horses with heaves,osteoarthritis, or simply to match their “evolutionary upbringing,” so to speak.

Recurrent colic in horses remains an important and concerning condition, contributing to pain, loss of use, death, and economic losses associated with diagnosing and treating the condition. According to one recent review article*, many causes of recurrent colic exist, including the following:
Herbal supplements designed to boost your horse’s health abound,, often containing ingredients such as ginger, garlic, yucca, devil’s claw, and more. Recently, Egyptian researchers reported* that garlic—an herb with a long and illustrious history in non-Western medicine—has gastroprotective effects and could potentially be used to help manage horses with gastric ulcers.
