"In a sport where seconds make all the difference, I believe that FLAIR® Strips give me an edge. Over the past 12 years, I have seen first-hand the difference that FLAIR Strips have on my horses' breathing, especially those that tend to work too hard during intense competitions. Not only do the Strips make breathing easier, but they also help maintain peak performance through even the toughest of courses and recover faster. I began using FLAIR Strips with my first FEI horse, a Morgan Mare named Shadow, who had a tendency to roar in the obstacles and during intense competition. My horse's breathing drastically improved upon trying FLAIR Strips and that year we went on to be the second alternate for the U.S. Single Horse World Championship team. From then on, I have used FLAIR Strips on all my horses and would not start the Marathon phase without them!"
