As the official feed sponsor of the U.S. Equestrian Federation, Triple Crown Nutrition was more than excited to, once again, present Jeff Gogul and his mount, Graciano, with the Triple Crown Excellence Award for their third championship win in the Green Hunter 3’ Division during Week Ten of the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF). “He was awesome today!” Gogul said about the win. “He just really melted around the course. He gave me two amazingly consistent rounds and felt wonderful underneath me. It felt particularly effortless today.”

This is the third time the pair have been named Champion of the division. After back-to-back wins during both Week One and Week Two, Gogul was thrilled to cap off the hat trick during Week 10 with first place scores of 88 in both rounds. He also appreciated being recognized by the Excellence Award. This prestigious award is given to a horse and rider team that demonstrates exemplary achievement within the equestrian community, as well as showing exceptionally good health and fitness.

Once again, Gogul was honored to take home Triple Crown’s tri-colored ribbon and an engraved silver platter as a part of the award. He said this is quite an accomplishment for Graciano. “He is a young horse we purchased late last summer,” he explained. “We showed him only one time last season, so this is really his first outing as a hunter. He was a dressage horse that was spotted in Tryon, and he literally had not jumped, so he has been a really quick study!”In addition to showing, Gogul is also a trainer who has brought 21 horses down from Wilmington, Ohio. He said Graciano will show one more time this season at WEF before heading back home.

Triple Crown wishes Gogul the best of luck, and is excited to continue to recognize and support equestrians like him, who are so passionate about their horses’ health, wellbeing and levels of excellence. The renowned feed company was the first to add prebiotics, probiotics, and organic minerals to horse feed, and continues today to deliver the very best in equine nutrition. Triple Crown’s unwavering devotion to nutritional excellence is not only apparent in its superior feeds, but in its commitment to supporting the dietary needs of horses across many disciplines and multiple training levels. In addition to sponsoring the 2019 Winter Equestrian Festival, Triple Crown Nutrition is also a proud sponsor of the Adequan® Global Dressage Festival.
