INTRODUCING TEAM T&R 2020 ⭐BAYLEY THOMAS⭐ Bayley from Lokenzo Park OTT Rehoming is a new addition to the team this year, and not only has a team of stunning competition horses, but does incredible work rehoming Off the Track horses - having rehomed a HUGE 32 in 2019!

What is your occupation?
• OTT Retrainer and Rehomer, horse trainer and coach

Where are you based?
• Roleystone

What are your chosen disciplines?
• Show Horse
• Dressage

Which horses do you have in your stable?
• CPE Quanita: 6yo Warmblood Mare – 2019 AWHA State Champion, 2018 Runner Up Debutante Hunter Hack and about to compete Elementary dressage
• Lokenzo Park Royal Arrival: 6yo Friesian Warmblood Mare – Multi State Champion, currently making her official show hunter debut
• Frisos Knight Ryder: 11yo Friesian Warmblood Gelding – Multi State and Royal Champion, competed to Elementary dressage, now school horse
• Lokenzo Park Bespoke: Yearling Warmblood Gelding – Will make his halter ring debut in 2020
• I have 2 ‘foals’ cooking too so hopefully the team will have 2 new healthy Warmblood additions by the end of 2020.
• Usually 2 – 3 Off The Track Rehomers... currently the Thoroughbred ‘Lord Devoutly’ and the Standardbred ‘Art Lover.’

What's on the cards for this year?
• Hoping for a big year this year for the team with CPE Quanita stepping up the grades in dressage and hopefully get back out to some of the big National qualifying events. Lokenzo Park Royal Arrival is being set for the Newcomer and Debutante events and with any luck also will compete at the qualifying events. The temptation is even there to do a little eventing with her!
• Rehoming and retraining horses as always is on the cards. 2 have been rehomed so far this year to date with one being a Standardbred and one being a Thoroughbred. A third sale is going through currently, another lovely Thoroughbred gelding. I don’t know if I can beat last year’s number of 32 but I will still be rehoming as many as I can.
• I am aiming to continue running my off the track grass roots event, an opportunity for the younger or more recent off the track horses to get out for some exposure in a non-judgemental atmosphere.

Where do you get your inspiration?
• I get my inspiration in the rehoming department by seeing the updates on the ones I have already successfully rehomed. Going out and seeing them at events or being sent messages and pictures of them doing well just makes my day whether it’s out as a trail horse, at adult riders or at horse of the year!
• I always think of things Jeremy Janjic has told me to keep motivated in the dressage/show horse rings. He has been a mentor to me and I very much miss him coming to WA but I remember the key phrase he told me, ‘if you like riding the horse, just enjoy riding him every day and see what you can do today.’ It takes the pressure off the end destination (whilst still working in that direction) and reminds me to enjoy the journey too!

What do you feed at home?
• I feed T&R Claytons Pellets to my show horses and ponies that come through.
• The off the track horses are fed T&R Seniors Formula Horse Cubes. The pre and probiotics in this fabulous feed are so good for their gut health coming off the track into their new environments. I see very quick positive results in their condition.
• My young ones are fed T&R Grower and Weaner Pellets. I have been feeding these pellets for as long as I can remember and all my babies have grown to healthy strong horses.

TUESDAY TIPS – Feeding New Season Hay 🌾

It’s that time of year when new season hay is on the market, and we are starting to use it in our horse’s diets. Did you know that there can be important differences in the nutritional value of hay from season to season?

Our nutritionist Jill Davies has analysed some results from the 2020 hay crops to look for trends:

▪ Crude Protein (and Lysine) is testing lower across the board.
❓What can help? If you are feeding a hay that is lower in protein, you may need to supplement with additional feed, making sure the protein and Lysine content is adequate.

▪Starch and sugars are testing higher this year – this is important for horses with metabolic issues, like sugar and gut sensitivities.
❓What can help? If you soak your horse's hay for 1 hour in cold water or just 30 minutes in hot water, you can knock out approx. 30% of the sugars. You cannot remove starch from hay, so you still need to be aware of starch content.

▪ADF and NDF percentages are higher than last year – ADF and NDF are measurements of fibre content that has low digestibility and palatability, like lignin. Lignin is what makes plants rigid and woody and is more prevalent in stems than in fresh leaves. With less digestible fibre, the digestible energy decreases. You can usually tell if your hay has a high NDF value by looking at it. In hay which has more leaf than stem, the ADF and NDF values will be lower, and therefore more digestible.
❓ What can help? If your horse is on hay that has a lot of stem, they may need more of it to get their digestible energy or be supplemented with additional feed. BE CAREFUL – hay that has too much low digestibility fibre, can lead to a higher risk of impaction colic.

If your horse is having issues with their gut and showing signs of diarrhoea after going onto new season hay, you can add a supplement like Alltech Microsorb, Alltech Yea-sacc or KER’s Equishure to their diet to assist them with their digestion.

As with any season, make sure the hay you feed or purchase has been ARGT tested!

This is good and interesting! Is there anywhere we can get a nutritional value on the hay we get?

Interesting read!! I never realised how different the nutritional values of hay can be each season!

We all know how important it is to provide athletes with the fuel they need 💪🏼
You could win some of our Rabbit and Guinea Pig Pellets for your little Olympian in our Freebie Friday competition.

INTRODUCING TEAM T&R 2020 ⭐ Chloe Gee⭐
Chloe is continuing with Team T&R this year, and we can't wait to see what this vibrant young rider, with her trademark pink colours gets up to!

Occupation: High School Student

Disciplines: Mainly Eventing, but also Showjumping and Dressage.

Where are you located? Mandurah, WA

Tell us about the horses in your stable:
• TORRIDON LIMITED EDITION: Tia is 15 years old (same as me!) and an Andalusian Riding Pony X and we’ve been together for nearly seven years now. She’s taken me from 45cm and Prelim to 1* Star in Eventing, 1.15m in Showjumping and Elementary level Dressage. Tia is owned by Kara Stalker.
• BARZ OPEN: Barz Open is a 9 year old Off The Track Thoroughbred and a new addition to Team Gee. He competed at Equestrian in the Park with Sam Griffiths last year and placed 10th. Very excited about him this year!
• HUEY: Huey is a cute 6/7 year old Off the Track Thoroughbred. He hasn’t competed yet, but he should be out mid-year! He’s a very smart boy and a pleasure to ride!

Have you got anything exciting on the cards for 2020?
• I’m hoping to do Wooroloo Three-Day this year as I’ve never been before, and I’m also going to Japan to watch the Olympics in late July!

What are your goals for 2020:
• My goals with Tia are to get up to 2*Star in Eventing, 1.20m in Showjumping and score 65% in at least three Elementary tests.
• Goals for Barz Open are to get confident at 1*Star and if all goes well, move up to 2*Star, compete at 1.15m in Showjumping and score well in my Elementary tests.
• Huey’s goal this year is to get out in the competition field and try his hand at everything: Dressage, Showjumping, Eventing and maybe, just maybe a show horse day 🙊😂.

Where do you get your inspiration?
• I have a fair few places where I draw my inspiration from, but the main ones would have to be Emily Gray, Tessa Sharman, Megan Jones, Chris Burton, Michael Dagostino and Shane Rose. All for various reasons, like the way they ride, how well they ride, or how strong they are and how they’ve defied the odds.

What do you feed your horses?
• Tia is on T&R's Clayton’s Pellets as she doesn’t need a whole lot of added energy!! They’re really great for maintaining her weight!
• Barz Open and Huey are both on the new Senior Pellets, they’re not Senior Horses, however it’s a great feed to help keep the a healthy amount of weight on, it also helps to give them top line and give a little bit of energy too!
• Barz Open is also on the T&R Lupins to add a bit more weight and energy!
