Del Mar, CA (June 14, 2013) – In its 68th year, the 2013 Del Mar National Horse Show was as successful as it has ever been. One of the show’s more entertaining and exciting events perhaps was its showcase of “Western Week” April 18th through April 21st which featured Four AQHA and PCQHA shows along with a NRHA show. Reigning champion and Vita Flex Victory Team member Bob Avila swept the competition during the week which attracted audience members young and old. When it comes to winning, Avila relies on Vita Flex’s line of nutritional supplements to keep his horses in ideal form.
The Del Mar National showcases a wealth of perpetual trophies which travel with its winners. The Show also honors continuous trophy winners each year by publishing their names and photos in the Official Program. The Avila name was not solely attributed to Bob’s success during Western Week as family including son B. J. and wife Dana experienced winnings of their own. Taking home nine perpetual trophies among themselves, next year’s Del Mar National program will be filled with the Avila family.
No stranger to champion reining, Bob Avila is one of the most accomplished and recognized horsemen in the world and has trained more than 35 world champion or reserve world champions. Being a National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) Million Dollar Rider, a three-time Snaffle Bit Futurity Champion, and a two-time World’s Greatest Horseman Champion he has accredited himself a name that is synonymous with true horsemanship. With a history like his, Avila was a natural addition to the 2013 Vita Flex Victory Team.
The Vita Flex Victory Team consists of leading competitive riders from multiple disciplines who use Vita Flex products and horse supplements to support peak performance in their horses. The 2013 Vita Flex Victory Team is already making headlines with their many wins, and Avila’s success at the Del Mar National is just another victory for the brand! Vita Flex has been supporting the winning ways of its many elite equestrians showcased on its Victory Team for the past few years.
“These are the real horses and people behind our Team,” said Tanner Clark, Brand Manager of Vita Flex. “We at Vita Flex are honored to have such incredible members like Avila on our Vita Flex Victory Team,” he commented, thrilled upon hearing about the accomplishments at the Del Mar National Horse Show.
Avila’s success at Del Mar National further exemplifies how elite riders draw the line between good and great by setting their efforts apart from other competitors with the use of Vita Flex Nutrition on their horses.
