Natasha Baker was Verdo Horse Bedding's first sponsored rider. The MBE and Paralympic dressage rider who currently holds five Gold medals was previously using a wood pellet bedding, but fell in love with Verdo within days of trialling the product. As she explains: “Having previously used a wood pellet bedding on the yard, we were already familiar with this type of bedding. However, Verdo Horse Bedding has excelled our expectations in terms of performance. It’s virtually dust free and the absorbent qualities are fantastic, meaning we are using far less bedding than before. Because it also comes in pellet form, it doesn’t take up masses of space or weight in the lorry, which makes it ideal for using in the lorry or for stabling overnight.” Verdo is now supplying Natasha's entire London yard, including her top Paralympic dressage horse JP, who also loves the bedding!
Gemma Tattersall started riding at the age of 18 months (as her mother has a riding school), she proved to be a natural and by the time she was 8 years old, Gemma had won the riding club junior (U17) dressage championship and her first one-day event! Now an international eventer competing at 4* level Gemma is on the World Class Programme. The talented rider has a string of exciting horses at all levels and Verdo are proud to cover the whole of her Sussex yard.
“Not only does the bedding perform beyond expectation, the fact that we don’t have to worry about quality or supply issues going forward, because Verdo manufacture the product themselves here in the UK which gives us one less thing to worry about. You also have a dedicated sales person, which means there’s no middle man either, which again having a direct point of contact is especially important during the busy season, when time needs to be spent focusing on the horses” says Gemma
Gemma will also use Verdo Horse Bedding on the road as well as home, ensuring that we are seen out and about here in the UK and also on foreign shores!
