HOYS & The Showing World Awards

We've just returned from another fantastic Horse of the Year Show! Our sponsored rider, Jayne Webber, had some great results including; sixth place in the Supreme Horse Of The Year Show Championship with The Humdinger, third place with Berkeley Square in The Richard and Lisha Leeman Small Riding Horse, fourth place with The Philanderer in The Stennett Family Large Riding Horse, third place in The Heavyweight Riding Cob Class and first in the The Coloured Horse and Pony Championship also with The Humdinger. Well done Jayne!

There was also the brilliant Showing Council/Showing World Awards held on Thursday 7th October. Our Absorbine Home & Away Award went to Nia Marshalay, a former Miss Wales!
Nia works extremely hard backstage for producers Ron and Debbie Thomas and is responsible for getting the ponies and horses ready for the ring at most of the shows, especially BSPS Summer and Winter championship show, Horse of the year show and The Royal International Show. Looking after 25-30 ponies at one show takes so much organising, which she does amazingly!

The runners up also received a goody-bag bursting with our brilliant products, including ShowSheen, MiracleGroom (a professional groom's best friend!!), SuperPoo, Supershine and much more!

HOYS 2010 - Top tips from Jayne Webber

It's that time of year again and HOYS is finally here!

First of all, we want to wish every Absorbine-user, facebook fan and Absorbine UK blog reader, headed for HOYS, the very best of luck. Don't forget your ShowSheen and we're sure your ponies will sparkle!!

Our lovely sponsored rider, the super talented show rider and producer, Jayne Webber, is off to HOYS this year with seventeen horses! Three of which are doing two classes - a total of twenty classes!! We also want to wish Jayne, and the team, the best of luck this year.

Jayne, who took the 2009 Horse Of The Year Supreme Championship title with Carol Bardo’s, The Philanderer, has some brilliant tips for the show ring, she explains:

"Always plait on the day of the show to keep them look neat. Small dainty plaits are for hacks and riding horses, while hunters can have slightly larger plaits.

"Bath your horse the day before a show. On the day, remove stable stains with a good quality horse shampoo such as ShowClean or SuperPoo. To finish off, whiten legs with a chalk block."

Keep checking the blog and our facebook page for updates on how she's getting on!!
