Norman’s next stop on this global trot was Latvia. The Latvian landscape, is a mosaic of vast forests alternaternating with fields, farmsteads, and pastures. Norman fell in love with its undeveloped seashore, lined by pine forests, dunes, and continuous white sand beaches.
Norman was aware that the development of the Latvian horse breed was based on tradition dating back to the 17th century. The Latvian horses are known to be among the best in dressage and eventing. Many different horse breeds have been improved using the Latvian horse bloodline. To see some of these great horses, Norman trotted to the Latvian Universtiy of Agriculture to visit its Horse Training Centre.
Norman meets with Brodor
On arrival Norman was taken aback by a beautiful stallion in the courtyard. He had shiny hair and the horse appeared to be very bright, excited and full of energy. Norman met with the horse owner, Kristina Rozite, who told the life story of Brodor, the stallion.
Many years ago Brodor seemed to be depressed and lazy. Training bored him and he had no fun at all. Otherwise the horse was healthy, but his vitality was lost and Kristina didn't know what to do. Coincidentally her sister found a box of feed supplements that were about to expire. With no expectations Kristina began to feed them to Brodor. Within the next couple of weeks Brodor became more and more spirited every day. Kristina told Norman how Brodor changed in front of her eyes thanks to Alltech and its LIFEFORCE Formula™.
Norman was delighted to hear that LIFEFORCE Formula is now fed to all horses at the Horse Training Centre. He now wonders how many horses taking part in the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy use LIFEFORCE Formula. He can’t wait to find out.
