Heidi - Shetland Ponies

 

As you know I own three lovely Shetland Ponies. I only used COMPOSE when transporting them and on another occasion for a visit to the vet for a vaccination. All went very well.

Recently, the vet came to do their teeth. Normally, this visit ends up with an upset vet, stressed out ponies and an exhausted me!

However, on this occasion I decided to give each pony the recommended amount of COMPOSE, one and half hours before the planned treatment. I lead them over to the main stable yard where they have never been before. Usually, I keep the ponies 24/7 out on a field. They were well behaved and calm during the journey. Amazingly, even the road traffic and a flock of loud calling guinea fowls running around did not disturb them.

The vet came on time and started to treat my very sensitive chestnut pony, Lancelot. He is normally the worst of them all. But he stood quite calm and made no attempt to rear up or run off. He kept his mouth open and the vet could even kneel in front of him without being attacked. This meant that the work on the teeth was accomplished very quickly.

The second pony, Simba, is the smallest. He stood even more relaxed with a nicely opened mouth and the vet could kneel comfortably beside him to do his teeth.

Finally, my mare, Penmor, who does not normally open her mouth, opened it willingly and the treatment was also completed in a short time.

It took the vet just over thirty minutes to treat all three of them. The ponies were all relaxed, calm and a pleasure to handle. They did not even show signs of an increased heartbeat.

On our return to the yard they got a quick wash and I led them back over to their field. It is not always easy to lead all three of them down a small busy road with not much space. They are often confronted with racing cars whose drivers do not slow down to consider the animals. The traffic did not bother them at all. Many thanks for introducing COMPOSE to me which has proved very helpful at all times.

 

Kind regards,

 

Heidi

Nervous Ponies

This is me with my friends 10 year old gelding who has had issues for some time with visits from the dentist.

 

He would use his size and weight to put his head in the air or just move people around. He had previously been sedated by the vet to complete the task, (which was upsetting for him and the owner when he was coming round) or let down by various dentists, from either an overpowering point or doing a partial job then never to return. It had therefore been a while since they were done properly.

 

As she had previously used 'Compose' it was therefore tried again and as you can see from the photo the horse is willingly stood allowing the dentist to use the power tool - happy days for all involved!

 

The brilliant aspect of 'Compose' is that it doesn't affect the horse like a sedative would, and just prior to the dentist arriving she had ridden him to prove that it is possible to do this whilst being fed!

Nicole R. - Horse osteopath

Horse Running

Last Friday I moved to another stable with my 14 year old Hanoverian gelding. Prior to the journey I gave my horse Compose. I was astonished by the effect which it had on my horse and hardly recognized him. He stepped into the trailer totally at ease, as if he did it every weekend; his last trailer trip was almost three years ago. Unloading was no issue either, he behaved like a pro – previously he would storm out backwards from the trailer. On arrival he surveyed his new surroundings and was really laid back. This is very unusual for him because he is normally extremely excitable and nervous. 

I had advised the stable owner that the horse would be hyperactive and difficult to handle. In the past he would need at least two days to calm down, but to my astonishment he behaved exceptionally well. His good behaviour continued, even when we let him join the herd. We imagined this procedure would take several days, but he stayed calm and was friendly to the other horses.

In the evening I fed him half a scoop of Compose, so that he would stay relaxed during the night in the open stable. This was a very good start to our new home. My horse’s stress-free attitude and uncomplicated adaption to his transport and new home made a positive impression on the other horse owners.

Next week I plan to ride him in unfamiliar terrain for the first time – I will of course give him Compose beforehand.

Hello Karen (Life Data Labs Europe Sales Representative)

 

At last back home after 10days in England taking in 2 shows, a total of 5 showing days.

 

I first used the Compose 2X to go to a very quiet side saddle dressage show near my home and actually found that 2 scoops in that situation was too much for the horse as he was uninterested and lethargic in his approach to his work. I tried to give him the 2 scoops on an empty stomach as advised but found he would not take it, so ended up mixing it with grated apple and feed, moistened with water to get it into him.

 

Last weekend in July - Aintree National Show, fed 2 scoops in remaining half of breakfast (1/2 scoop D&H Slow Release Muesli) 2 hours before class, walked from stables out onto race course (on side saddle), along the backs of the trade exhibitors and their tents, gazebos, past prams, children, dogs on leads, sunny day lots of people about, with his ears facing forward and feet following in the same direction - it felt so strange, no spook, and no inclination to spook. We went into the ring with 6 others, had a tiny blip as a horse was being run up in hand towards us in the adjoining ring, but such a well behaved horse and I finished 3rd!!
I did another class about an hour and a half later in the same ring and he was an angel but I do think if I had been out any longer the effect was starting to wear off.

 

Side Saddle National Show at Addington Manor, 1/2/3 Aug Fed 2 scoops in remaining half of breakfast 2 hrs before my class each day, but on last day topped up with an extra scoop 2 hrs before my last class as I had 2 classes with a bit of a gap between them.


He coped magnificently in the go round amongst 14/16 horses, they were all large classes, some rings had showjumping in the adjoining ring, commentary, music, cheering crowd, badly behaved horses and we managed to ride through it all on our side saddle, I had a changed horse.

 

I will not compete again with out the Compose 2X, it gives me a horse at about 95% spook free as opposed to about 45% without using it, I have tried all sorts of calmers as I told you because he gets up tight as soon as we enter the ring and the walk from the stables to the ring at Aintree along the back of the flapping tents could have been a disaster without the Compose 2X
