Baulking Grange is a busy riding school and livery yard in South Oxfordshire catering for the ambitious amateur rider.
A number of our liveries have recently invested in the Block the Shock numnahs and Saddle Seats. Here is what they say about the Block the Shock products.
Justine and Fredo. Fredo is 18 yrs old, he is a retrained Arab racehorse who is now used for pleasure riding. Justine says ‘Since using the Block the Shock numnah Fredo has really developed his top line. His previously tight hamstrings seem to be a thing of the past. He is now moving correctly through his back and is able to swing forward into the contact. All good news!’
Holly, Marcus and Lazarus. Marcus is 22yrs young and currently competes in veteran showing classes and dressage. Lazarus is Holly’s younger horse and they hope to start competing BE shortly. Holly says ‘The Block the Shock numnah has been great for Marcus, I have been able to work him harder, he is more supple and he is no longer stiff after a competition. Lazarus loves his numnah. If we make a mistake jumping the numnah helps absorb the bump which means he’s happy to come round and give it another go! It’s amazing I wouldn’t use anything else on my horses.’
Katie and Nimble. Nimble is a 12yr old retrained racehorse and Katie’s first horse. Katie hopes to compete in dressage and RoR classes next year and has recently invested in a Block the Shock Saddle Seat. She says ‘It’s really comfortable!’ Her coach, Emma Green, says, ‘As a novice rider Katie occasionally struggles with her balance. On these occasions the Block the Shock Saddle Seat helps absorb the impact on Nimbles back allowing her to remain relaxed until Katie recovers herself, stopping an incident turning into an accident.’
Sally Colliver, head coach at Baulking Grange says, ‘There has been a visible improvement in the horses way of going, muscle development and comfort since using the Block the Shock products. Happy relaxed horses make happy confident riders’
Block the Shock Numnahs and Saddle Seats have proved to be versatile, fitting a variety of saddle types and sizes. The removable section of the numnah is easy to maintain and keep clean making it a very usable product. Block the Shock products are now a staple for the Baulking Grange tack room.
