Lacarolus is pictured above wearing his UltrOZ saddle pad before the 1.40m class in Ocala in preparation for the 100,000 grand prix of Ocala.
I was thinking the other day, just before the $100,000 grand prix of ocala, about how crucial every piece of the "overall puzzle/formula" is. I reflected on how many little things I do in order to prepare for such a big event. To name a few, strategically jump the horse in a manner that prepares him for competition, have the vet do a once over to make sure he (the horse) is in top form, accupuncture, ice boots, magnetic therapies, and the list goes on and on... My point in realizing how much we do to prepare is that the day before the big grand prix I found myself NEEDING to use an UltrOZ elite. Lacarolus came out of the 1.40m prep class really well but when he got back to the barn I noticed the old outside splint and windpuff were both a little bit inflamed. I immediately asked Victor (my groom who I couldn't live without) to take then next 8 hours to put the UltrOZ on each area for 4 hours respectively. The next morning (the morning of the GP) there was no sign inflammation. At that moment I realized I had a new product to add to my "formula" that I couldn't live without.
