"My horses put their heart into every run and they deserve the best. FLAIR® Strips are a key component in my competition runs and provides my horses the easy will to breathe during and after their performance. If my horses can't breathe efficiently, they're not performing their best. Knowing that my horses have the best to succeed and perform at the top makes me more confident during and after competition."
