“I have been in competitive barrel racing since age 10 and currently competing at the WPRA/PRCA level. Over the past 10 years, it has been a battle to keep sound my 19-year old mare, Te. She’s fragile but tough as nails. With a goal of keeping Te comfortable and semi-retired, my vet, Dr. Carole Holland, introduced me to Pro-Stride in 2017. As we started treating her with Pro-Stride, we noticed her condition getting better, not only physically but emotionally too. She started meeting me at the gate again and kept her weight on.
After my mare, Annie (my number one barrel horse) was unable to compete, Te had to take her spot in the Denver Stock Shows. To our surprise, Te ended up in the top 20 at age 19. For the first time in her 10-year career with me, she stayed on feed, met me every time at her stall door, and walked in the gate probably the best I have ever seen her do. We continued competing in other rodeos where she pulled checks at almost all of them, including placing 3rd overall in a 300+ barrel race. It's was like she was a completely different horse. I have never seen her so happy, sound, and pain free! The best I have ever had her compete in our entire career together and a whole year without injury or going lame. Pro-Stride gave me another full year to compete on her and not only that gave another year as of now to keep competing with her at almost 20-years of age.
Annie’s injury was a torn suspensory on her left front leg. Dr. Holland also used Pro-Stride on Annie as a recommended best course of treatment for her injury. Every month we ultra-sounded her to see how her healing process was going. By 3 months we saw the tear was almost gone and she was sound enough to start walking her. At 5 months to our amazement and utter shock Annie was completely healed!!! I don't think any of us could believe it or grasp that she healed not only that sound! Then she went straight to rehab and 7 months I was back to riding and ready to compete. No doubt in any of our minds that if it wasn't for Pro-Stride, Annie would not be back to competing this soon and completely HEALED! In fact, my friends horse tore her suspensory a month before Annie did and it is sadly still not healed or sound. He is going to use Pro-Stride now.
All in all, I'm so thankful for Carole Holland introducing Pro-Stride because it has been life changing for me and my horses. I haven't looked back or thought about it twice since. I will not treat my horses with anything else but Pro-Stride!”
