Oil was tested by Wendy Robertson and Benny. Wendy has already gained an
HNC in Horse Managementand is currently working for her BHS Stage 2, having
passed her Stage 1 the day this photograph was taken.
Benny is a 16hh 6 year old dark bay Irish Draught cross gelding. He lives at
Hayfield Riding Centre and is ridden by riders of all standards but excels at
dressage. He has just started competing successfully at Novice level.

promote hair growth. Benny continued wearing the same rug throughout, so there
is no doubt that this product really does work.
