Wayne, IL (September 1, 2015) − When Lisa Wilcox and Gallant Reflection HU made their victory gallop in the Six-Year-Old Young Horse Finals at the 2015 Markel/USEF Young Horse Championships, Wilcox once again demonstrated why she is part of the Vita Flex Victory Team. Leading performance horse supplement company Vita Flex is proud to congratulate Wilcox’s winning performance at the Championships.

The Six-Year-Old Test is demanding, but Gallant Reflection HU, known as “Reef,” took it in stride, scoring an 82.0 percent. The competition was held at the Lamplight Equestrian Center on August 19-23. The judges gave nods for Reef’s ground-covering trot and rhythmic walk, adding that he has the potential to excel in top-level dressage.

“He’s a Grand Prix horse, and I’m very confident saying that,” Wilcox said of the Zweibrucker stallion (Galant Du Serein x Rohmanie x Rohdiament), owned by Unlimited Horses Inc. “It’s about the things that he offers. I made a mistake asking for changes once, and I got three one-tempis. I just stopped moving, and he kept going.

“He’s ahead of himself,” she continued. “He’s already a little bored with this test. At home, I school more or less the Prix St. Georges, but with these young horses there’s a level of concentration you need, too. Yes, he’s very concentrated at home, but it’s a little more difficult with the show atmosphere. You’re happy to have a horse a little above and beyond in the atmosphere.”

Wilcox is a Vita Flex Victory Team rider and swears by a variety of Vita Flex® products to keep her horses happy, healthy, and fit. As she prepares for upcoming competitions in Saugerties, New York and at Dressage at Devon in Pennsylvania, she ensures Reef is in tip-top health with the help of Vita Flex.

“VISION® Focusing & Calming Supplement for Horses is a great product,” she said. “I’ve been very impressed with the results we are getting. I also love the multi-vitamin and mineral supplement Accel®,” she added. “It’s been fantastic for my horses’ overall health. They also love the new flavor of the AccuLytes™ electrolytes that Vita Flex has come up with. I’m happy to see nothing left in the buckets. With the heat we have been having, they are sweating profusely. I need to make sure they are getting all those nutrients back in their bodies before we begin the next day of sweating!

“With Lactanase® supplement, as I am working and training this summer and preparing for the shows in the fall, I’m able to support the horses and the hard work they are doing,” she continued. “It also gives back to those muscles and nurtures them throughout the training program.”

Wilcox also knows that hoof health is vital to any horse. “I love the Master’s Hoof Blend™ formulation. That’s fabulous. Our horses have exceptionally good looking feet and I’m very, very happy with the quality of the hoof they’re growing.”

Vita Flex is thrilled to help top riders like Wilcox keep their horses in prime condition. Vita Flex provides a variety of top-quality equine products, including antioxidants, electrolytes, vitamins and minerals, and topical solutions to help keep horses in peak health.
