T.E.N. is the new range of targeted nutrition supplements brought to you from the makers of SPILLERS®. Created by horse owners, the products have been developed with the real challenges that horse owners face in mind. Here we look at how one owner has used T.E.N. to keep her mare more comfortable in her later years…
Johanna Steward has owned 22-year-old Charm, a 15.1hh Arab cross, for 18 months after having her for a short period on loan.
“Charm is a pleasure to own and although she is a typical mare, she is getting more affectionate the better I get to know her!” says Johanna.
In her younger days Charm used to excel at cross-country, but due to some joint stiffness, she is taking life a little easier these days. This makes her the perfect partner for Johanna who classes herself as a happy hacker; and who can blame her with Bedford Park on their doorstep to enjoy. They regularly go out for long rides together, but Johanna says “I let Charm dictate the pace, as she has good days and bad days with her joint health, so she lets me know if she is feeling up for it.”
With joint health being a concern, Johanna has had Charm on a joint supplement since taking her on. She was recommended T.E.N. Senior Joints by a SPILLERS® nutritionist, so decided to give it a go as “it has a good level of glucosamine,” she explains, “and I was also interested to see if the Devil’s Claw would make a difference. The fact that it was also cheaper was an added bonus!”
Since being on T.E.N. Senior Joints, Johanna is pleased with the results: “Charm is more comfortable and keen to have a few more gallops when out riding, so I’m going to keep using the supplement,” she says.
Although T.E.N. is available exclusively online, Johanna jokes that “as my husband is always on the computer I’ve had to place my order over the phone, but he does helpfully tell me when my supplement has been dispatched!”
