The Over The Hill Farm team is having great success at WEF 2018, and it's not over yet! Not only are the riders and the horses performing well in the ring, but also the farm was recognized with an award for the tack room, and a hard-working group wowed the crowd at a popular event benefiting a great cause. Check out some great highlights from the series so far below.
Wynne Weatherly and Bill Schaub were recognized With The Vita Flex Tack Room Award During Weeks 5 and 6 of the 2018 Winter Equestrian Festival:
Wellington, FL (February 21, 2018) - When it comes to recognizing the difference between good and great performances during the 2018 Winter Equestrian Festival, Vita Flex does it best. During the exciting hustle and bustle of this esteemed international show series in Wellington, Florida, many equestrians can overlook the importance of maintaining attractive and well organized tack rooms and the competitive advantage this can bring. That’s why Vita Flex is, for the second year in a row, presenting the Vita Flex Tack Room Award to the barns and equestrians who show exceptional attention to detail and organization in their tack rooms during this year’s festival.
Winning the award during Week 5 of Winter Equestrian Festival was Wynne Weatherly and Havens Schatt/Milestone Farm. Weatherly says she loves the competitive atmosphere of Winter Equestrian Festival and explains that teamwork has been the key to keeping the tack room well organized. “Every day is a challenge,” she describes, “but we like to approach it with a team effort. Everyone pitches in where help is needed!” Weatherly is familiar with the many benefits of Vita Flex® products, and she says she is super excited and grateful for the supplements that are included as a part of the award prize.
Bill Schaub of Over The Hill Farm was also excited to receive the Vita Flex Tack Room Award during Week 6. “We’re trying to build a team where everyone works together,” Schaub explained about his barn. “We’ve recently hired some new guys and we’re trying to get them to blend together. It’s important to put the right people in the right places!” he continued. This attention to detail is paying off for Schaub and the Over The Hill Farm team. “We’re bringing in these young horses, and we’ve got a great group of kids and adults this year. In fact, four or five of them are already way up in the standings!” Vita Flex is excited to support Schaub’s riders, and are confident that the Tack Room Award prize packet will help them all climb even higher.
