Natasha Goody works at The British Racing School, Newmaket after leaving Hack Up and Fizz Equine Marketing 4 years ago, on the best of terms.
"I made an impromptu visit back to see Hack Up and collect my Bespoke supplement for Jakk. Seeing the difference in the business from a few short years ago was incredible. The team, systems, operation and professionalism was impressive.
Jakk my Belgium Warmblood is my horse of a lifetime. I bought him 2 years ago and train whenever I can as he is so capable and I just love spending time with him. Eventing is our thing and I hope he will be 'The One' to take me all the way!! He is really well bred, his sire being Grand Prix show jumper Cicero Z. It's a great situation at the moment because he's kept at the Racing School in Newmarket where I work and we've got such a bond as a result. Being young and in his first season last year, I felt I was losing marks in a silly way in his dressage, as he was just a little fresh. I gave Alex a call and he worked out a calming formulation but he also advised me to have a joint support product too, so I could really get the best out of him. Well, the difference I could feel within a week! The following week we were competing at Keysoe HT and I was hopeful that the extra support of the supplements would enable us not to throw points away - what I did not dare hope for was that we would win the event, but we did!!!
I know how much Alex loves horses, I had a poorly horse and he gave him a stable at Grove Farm so I could be with him whilst I was at work. Alex used to beat me at Pony Club competitions, so I have to admit he is a great all round horseman too. Formulating is not just a job for Alex, it is a passion which he puts his heart and soul into. Every horse is important, not just his own, and all his products have the edge on anything else you can safely compete on."
