Sam Griffiths, Team FLAIR

Sam Griffiths

"For more than 20 years, I have used FLAIR® Strips on my horses. The more you learn about the horse and jumping effort, the more you understand the benefits of FLAIR. With FLAIR Strips, my horses have less fatigue, recover faster and more efficiently, and I'm able to prevent nose bleeds (EIPH). We use FLAIR Strips on all horses and all levels, including when we are doing fast work at home."
