Reviews

We have owned Lola since weaned from her dam, rounding her up with her breeder from the forest. To say our journey has been an eventful one is an understatement! She has been a tricky baby from day 1, resulting in an accident which left us questioning if she would ever make the "happy hack" we hoped she would be.

Now 10 years old she is regularly competing in dressage, jumping and cross-country.

She has been fed L-Mix her whole working life, as she is a native she doesn't need much. It always keeps her looking healthy and feeling really well!
