Absorbine Team Member Spotlight – Sara Esthus

You love your horse, and we love that! Every month we’ll be asking one of our friends from social media to showcase their horses and share a few words in our Absorbine Spotlight!

Sara & Hobbers 2015

This time we direct the spotlight on Sara and Teenage King (aka “Hobbes”), her 8 y.o. Thoroughbred gelding.  Sara is a valued team member here in the Absorbine Marketing & Sales department!

A: What do you do with your horse?

S: We event, hunter pace and trail ride – anything outside!

A: What Absorbine products do you like, and why did you start using them?

S: I’ve been using ShowSheen for as long as I can remember, it’s just always been a staple in my grooming box and around the barns where I’ve ridden.  I also really love Santa Fe for its deep conditioning and also our new Bigeloil Quilted Poultice Wraps.  I started using the poultice wraps when we were developing the product and have kept it up because they make it so easy to take care of his legs after a hard workout.

A: Any fun horse care tips you’d like to share? Can include product tricks or “out of the box” uses.

S: I swear by ShowSheen and Santa Fe – I alternate them on his mane and tail during the week to keep them both shiny and super soft.  When I first got Hobbes he needed a lot of grooming attention and had a short, not-so-great tail – I worked hard to get him looking his best and now he has a long, beautiful tail that I may be a little obsessed with…

A: What’s the funniest thing non-horse people ask you about horses?

S: When they think all horse events are races – how was your race last weekend?  So, do you race your horse?

A: What do you love most about your horse?

S: I love the bond that we have – we know each other very well thanks to countless hours both on the ground and riding.  He is super curious and has a definite sense of humor – he knows how to zip and unzip jackets.  When it comes to riding he is up for anything, he learns quickly and really loves his job.

A: Thanks for sharing your life with Hobbes with us Sara!
