Sponsored Rider - Steph O'Connor

The introduction of the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula into both of Steph’s horses diet has had a really positive affect on the quality of their hooves – they are stronger, more supple, have a much smoother appearance without cracks.

Steph has been highly successful in showing her horses for the past 10 years, after being “bitten” by the showing bug with her first little galloway Shazza. Presentation and quality of work is of the highest priority to Steph, which is why the Aussie Farrier's Hoof Formula is part of her winning team in ensuring her horse's hooves are healthy and always ready to compete.

CeCe Moscato (Moet) was purchased in late August 2015 for Rachael as a step up from EvA 105, to begin a new journey at CIC* level.

Steph’s passion is for thoroughbreds, with both her current two mounts Supreme (Mickey), and Velocity (Henry) achieving success in the show ring in both open hack and breed classes. Supreme is the current reining All States Showdown Large Hack champion and Grand National Child's Hack champion, as well as recently qualifying for the 2017 Grand National Open Large Hack class at the Northern NSW Hack Championships. Velocity is currently in his newcomer year, and won Reserve Champion Led ANSA at the 2016 Canberra Royal Show, as well as showing potential in his ridden career after winning Reserve Champion Newcomer Hack at the ENSW Horse of the Year. Steph also thoroughly enjoys rider classes, after winning the 2016 Pacific Coast Hack Championships 21-30 years, 2nd at Sydney Royal in the Ida Buring Turnout over 17 years and ribboning in her rider at every Royal in 2015 and 2016.

Keeping hooves strong and supple without cracking or damage was a challenge with the thoroughbreds. Having to wear hoof black on their hooves week after week had a major negative impact on the health of their hooves, causing them to crumble and crack easily. The introduction of the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula into both of Steph’s horses diet has had a really positive affect on the quality of their hooves – they are stronger, more supple, have a much smoother appearance without cracks. Henry in particular had very poor hooves that would continually crack and loose shoes, however since the introduction of the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula his feet are no longer crumbling away, and he hasn't lost a shoe in months!

With presentation of her horses being of the utmost importance, Steph has found the addition of the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula has also improved the quality and shine of her horses coats. No other coat supplement or oils are needed, the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula provides the most beautiful shine without 'popping' or growing a longer coat through winter.

“I am so honoured to be part of the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula team. It was wonderful to find a product that really worked for our horses, providing them with healthy feet as well as a beautiful shiny coat. Thank you so much to the Aussie Farrier for this opportunity, I just love this product!"

The Aussie Farrier looks forward to following Steph and her beautiful mounts through the seasons and successes.
