The first horse inspection for this year’s Longines CCI5*-L competition has kicked off Luhmühlen 2019. All horses presented to the ground jury were accepted and declared fit to compete in this year’s Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials. Among the many international competitors, German riders Andreas Dibowski (FRH Butts Avedon) and Andreas Ostholt (Corvette 31) presented themselves in front of the home crowd. “I always plan my season so I can ride at least one of my horses in the big event here in Luhmühlen. Avedon feels super fit at the moment, and I hope to prove myself right for choosing to compete in the five-star competition," said Dibowski.

Tomorrow morning will start at 9:00 a.m. with the first section of dressage for the CCI4*-S Meßmer Trophy. The test ride is Miriam Engel (GER) with Bonita Bella. At 2:15 p.m. the Longines CCI5*-L will be kicked off by test rider Kai Rüder (GER) with Colani Sunrise.

The Scoop on Oral Joint Supplements

“We need to back up and look at the gut,” said Dr. Maureen Kelleher before diving into an explanation of the many different oral joint supplements on the market. “Digestion begins in the mouth. Salivary secretion starts to break things down as the horse chews things up and then swallows, and it ends up in the stomach. We’ve got more digestion occurring in the stomach and the small intestine, and absorption starts to occur in the small intestine and continues in the large intestine.”
