Wellington, FL - When Dutch Warmblood stallion Abacus (Tuchinski x Tian, Mooiman) entered the ring for his first CDI during the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival, his exceptional health, fitness, and athletic ability were obvious to spectators. Omega Alpha Director of Business Development Patti Hanco was drawn to Abacus’s handsome and healthy appearance. As a result, Abacus and his owner, Carol Cohen, were presented with the Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award. The award recognizes horses for their exceptional health and fitness throughout the 2015 Adequan Global Dressage Festival. Cohen and Abacus received a commemorative ribbon and prize basket filled to the brim with Omega Alpha supplements and equine health products.
When asked what her secret is to having such a healthy horse, Cohen points to rider Hannah Michaels and Abacus’s grooms. “I can’t take all the credit for his appearance and health,” Cohen said. “It really is Hannah’s wonderful care alongside our great grooms. We are big believers in ‘less is more’, so we really keep it simple. Right now, we are very excited about the Omega Alpha products and we really feel that they are going to have a great impact on him.”
In addition to keeping Abacus looking great, Michaels says she keeps him feeling great by incorporating variety into his work. “We work him six days a week, but not always in the ring,” she said. “We take him down the road. Sometimes we ride him twice a day. We’ll ride him in the ring in the morning and take him for nice long gallop or hack down the canal and I think that keeps his mind fresh and ready to work. He never says no and he’s always eager to please, which is the most fun about riding him. His team’s hard work has paid off, with the Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award as recognition.
“I’m thrilled that they’ve won it,” said Hanco. “Abacus looks absolutely magnificent and I think they’ll find that our products fit very well into their supplement program.” The Omega Alpha natural supplement line of products is the number-one selling line in Canada, and is on its way to being the number one best-selling line in the U.S.
