Dr. Levy and her team joined us on Sunday to do additional chiropractic work on our riders as well as test out our donation of ROCKTAPE, which helped us stay in position and has definitely had a positive impact on our results. We finished strong as Sunday’s High Point Team with Sophomore Morgan Mamon as the Reserve High Point Rider after taking second in Novice Fences and winning her Novice Flat class. Captain Emma Krenzke also pointed-out of Intermediate Fences and will be making two appearances at Regionals in 2015.
The USC Equestrian Team headed down to UCSD for the second show of the season November 8-9th. The team ended the first day as the Reserve High Point Team while Junior Cadence Cisneros, took the Reserve High Point Rider award after placing 1st and 2nd in Novice Fences and Flat. Junior Casey Astorino celebrated her birthday on Saturday, and took 3rd in Intermediate Fences! After the first day of showing, we enjoyed a delicious dinner in celebration of Casey and Coach Kat’s birthdays!
We're so excited to announce our partnership with RevitaVet Therapeutic Systems! RevitaVet is a light therapy system that works at the cellular level to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and improve performance. Here, Mateo wears the poll cap as well as the smaller attachments on his hocks and hips. Mateo wasn't in a serious program before joining the team so he came to us with the tendency to swap off his leads and he carried a lot of tension in his neck. After just a few uses of the RevitaVet, we noticed Mateo almost never swapped and there was a significant improvement to his overall carriage and movement.
We also used the RevitaVet on Napoleon, who was known to get heavy through downward transitions which we believed was due to built up tension in his poll. He wore the poll cap before competing and he was much softer and put in the best performances we've seen him do to date! We are very happy with the results of our RevitaVet thus far and can't wait to treat the other team horses. Thank you so much to Tom for introducing us to such a wonderful product!
