SPONSORED RIDER STEPH O'CONNOR

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.

Stephanie O’Connor and Supreme (Mickey).

Steph has been highly successful in showing her horses for the past 15 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.

Steph’s passion is for thoroughbreds, with both her current mount Supreme (Mickey), achieving success in the show ring in both open hack and breed classes. Highlights in their career include Champion Hacks at Grand Nationals, EA Nationals, Royals and HOTYs, including 2020 Reserve Champion Large Hack of the Year. Mickey is also an excellent breed class horse, winning Champion Ridden ANSA at Sydney Royal and Grand Champion Ridden Thoroughbred of Show at the 2020 Thoroughbred State Final. Mickey has also taken Steph to win Champion Rider classes at Royals, HOTYs, and Royal Turnouts. Their proudest moment to date was winning Champion Hack at the 2017 Brisbane Royal Show.

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 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. Mickey in particular had very poor hooves that would continually crack and loose shoes (usually the night before an event), 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.

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.
