PAVO Care4Life - When only the best is good enough!
The outdoor season doesn’t seem to get any closer these days. Outside everything is white and cole, and the days are cold and dark. In a year such as this with endless and dark winterdays that seem to last forever, we have been extraordinary happy with our Pavo feeds. Not least the Pavo Health Boost and the new superfeed Pavo4Life which we have used to keep our horses super fit, healthy and in high spirits. And the results have been remarkable! All through the winter, our boys have been super motivated and willing to work, with a shiny, soft fur coat and finally, none of them have even been close to having a day off due to sickness.
I cannot stress this enough: Feeding your horse well is the foundation for good performance! If you want to learn more about what would be the best way to feed your own horse, then check out Pavo’s website (www.pavohorses.co.uk).

CCI1* in Arville and daily training sessions
I Looooooove Portugal !
This picture is from the CCI1* in Arville, Belgium - I miss Karry and I'm so glad that Peter Flarup is happy with her - she is doing very well upthere :-)
A huge thank you to Lærke Larsen, for leaving her favourite baby in my care - I'm extremely grateful and I know that Karry will be the best school master a rider could wish for. She is so well produced in any way that every minut spent with her is an absolute pleasure. I will do my very best to take good care of her and make sure that she will continue to thrive and develop.
Also a big thank you to my wonderful family and fantastic sponsors TRYG, PAVO, ANIMO, PROHALMPILLE and TEQTON - without your support this would not be possible!
