KER-Sponsored Endurance Rider Prepping for Selection Trial

March 20, 2012

John Crandell reports that he is currently training in Florida and has applied to the U.S. Team with Heraldic for the World Endurance Championship to be held in England in the summer of 2012. He is planning to participate in the 100-mile selection trial for the World competition, to be held in Texas in late March.

Crandell, who is sponsored by Kentucky Equine Research, counts on RiteTrac, a digestive tract conditioner, to help Heraldic stay in good health throughout the demands of training, travel, and competition. The equine stomach and hindgut of a heavily trained horse are subject to imbalances related to stress, large grain meals, and feed management practices. RiteTrac is designed to protecting the stomach lining and restore the normal gastric environment. It also prevents hindgut acidosis that can lead to compromised health and decreased performance.
