An exciting new look is unveiled today for consumer favourite, NAF Five Star Superflex Senior. Valegro, the dressage superstar who captivated the world and broke record after record, is the new face of this powerful supplement that offers horses Five Star Treatment for joint health. Fed on Superflex Senior daily, Valegro was the obvious choice as the new face of the product.
Joint health is important for both leisure and performance horses alike, no matter their age or discipline. The joints category has benefitted from more scientific study than many others and the Veterinary and Nutrition teams at NAF have taken this evidence based nutrition and combined it with their expertise of ingredients to create a range of Five Star Superflex products that are quite simply, for the good of the horse. The effective, unique synergistic blend of ingredients that makes up Superflex Senior has been formulated to provide targeted nutrition for maintenance of senior joints and older horses and ponies.
Joint care is a complex, multifactorial consideration and Superflex Senior provides the key joint support nutrients alongside omega 3 fatty acids and naturally sourced antioxidants which are particularly important for the joint stresses that affect our older equine friends. Alongside his rider, Charlotte Dujardin, Valegro won three Olympic Gold medals as well as numerous European and World titles. He also still holds the world records in all three Grand Prix tests, an outstanding achievement when you consider that this wonder horse retired from competition in 2016.
Twenty-one-year-old Valegro remains based at Carl Hester's yard in Gloucestershire and is still exercised on a regular basis to keep him fit and flexible. Co-owner, Carl, was delighted when he first saw the new label in the flesh.
Carl said "I remember the first time I saw Valegro. This beautiful dished head came over the door and it's lovely to see one of his stunning headshots on Superflex Senior. Myself and the team at NAF spent some time looking for the perfect shot with our photographer Jess and we hope that everyone loves this one as much as we do.
"Feeding for joint health is crucial for ensuring that we provide the right support for our horses and the Five Star Superflex product range allows us to do just that. Valegro gave us so much throughout his competitive career and Superflex Senior is the supplement of choice for helping him to maintain an active lifestyle as he gets older. It provides the right nutrition at the right levels, giving him flexibility for life."
