South Australian show horse rider Brianna Duncan and her mother Sue are proud of their magnificent Warmblood gelding Felix (Heathmont Forever After). The picture above was taken this week at 3 ½ years of age.
Brianna writes “Felix arrived at our property in June 2017 when he was about 7 months old. As soon as he arrived he was put on a natural diet formulated by Victoria for a young growing warmblood. All our horses are on the VF Natural Diet including my show horse Deevie (Double TT De-Vita) who we have also owned since a weanling. They are all an absolute picture of health with great body condition, beautiful shiny coats and lovely dispositions. We have had all our horses on Victoria’s diet and guided by her for any health issues with them for around 9 years now. “
Felix was bred by Jacinta Abernethy of Heathmont Stud and is an IFS foal being by For Romance and out of an imported KWPN mare Elloniki who is by Delatio (De Niro/Ferro). “Felix was an absolute stand out for us fitting all the criteria we were looking for in Brianna’s future dressage/show horse, the picture below shows him at 7 months.”
“Felix was broken in just before turning 3 late last year, he was a bit quirky when being broken and in the early days but now loves being ridden and all the attention that comes with it, he is a quick learner and has a great work ethic. I have really mainly focused in showing in the past with my horses but am looking forward to hitting the dressage arena with Felix, I have recently started training with a dressage instructor to help prepare us for the young dressage horse classes. We have had some very positive comments about Felix and look forward to his future.” Picture below was taken this week.
“He has grown into a magnificent horse” agrees Victoria. “I am so lucky to have clients like Brianna and Susan who provide absolutely top class management and care for their horses.”
“They have a high appreciation for the benefits of my natural feeding programs. I based them on old fashioned feeding I learnt from my Grandfather who had racehorses and my Father who showed the horses we used for stock work .”
The VF Natural Diet eliminates the need for multiple supplements and is easily adapted for all breeds of horses and ponies across all sports and pleasure riding Australia wide.
