Sarah becomes targeted worming ambassador with Westgate

This press release about Sarah’s  work with Westgate Labs went out today:

Westgate Labs is delighted to announce a new association with international Event rider Sarah Bullimore. Sarah, an athlete on the Equestrian World Class Podium Eventing Squad, competes at the top level of her sport as well as bringing on an exciting string of young horses and running a small breeding programme from her Bedfordshire yard.

Sarah uses targeted worming to manage the parasite control for all of the horses in her care and is a firm advocate of the test based approach to worming:

“Targeted parasite control is a no brainer for me and so quick and easy with the backup and advice from Westgate Labs. It’s always busy on the yard with competition horses coming and going and foals and young stock on the ground. Using their trusted service and knowing their friendly experts are just a phone call away gives me peace of mind that we have this essential aspect of our horses’ care well covered to keep them in tip top condition through the season.

“I’m really happy to be working with Westgate to help spread the message about best practice parasite control so that we can highlight the importance of managing parasite burdens to keep horses healthy while using wormers responsibly to slow resistance.”

Operations Director Kristy Hodgson from Westgate Labs commented:

“All horses need good parasite control and this is especially true of performance horses to help them reach their true potential. We’ve been working with the team at Bullimore Eventing for several years now and have always been impressed by Sarah’s approach to the management of her yard. The whole team are meticulous about the wellbeing of their horses and reflect the same values of professionalism, quality and care that we set ourselves here at Westgate.

“We are looking forward to supporting Sarah through her 2017 season and being part of the journey to help keep her horses in the best possible health.”

Sarah heads the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials this week to contest the 4* with Reve Du Rouet, a 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding owned by Chris and Sue Gillespie and Brett Bullimore.

Family business Westgate Laboratories has been helping horse owners to manage the parasite burdens of their horses since 1999. Their purpose built laboratory offers worm egg counts, pinworm, lung worm and liverfluke tests as well as the EquiSal test, all with friendly veterinary approved advice from their team of SQPs.
