Annabel Shields, GB Showjumper supports Bettalife' December 2023 | Annabel Shields, GB Showjumper supports Bettalife'
We are proud to have the support of Annabel Shields, GB Showjumper and British Showjumping National Champion 2017. Annabel has been using the product Bettalife' PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA for six months now with her horse Wet Wet Wet. 
Bettalife' PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA is our equine joint supplement which contains the highest levels of Glucosamine, Methyl Sulfonyl Methane, Chondroitin and Hyaluronic Acid on the market today. Bettalife PharmaQuin has been formulated to contain optimal quantities of every single ingredient, ensuring your horse achieves the best possible results. Unlike other products, Bettalife PharmaQuin also contains a unique component - Bioperine. This increases the absorbance efficiency of the supplement to ensure your horse gets the maximum benefits from every scoop. 
Annabel claims Bettalife' PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA has been the perfect addition to fourteen-year-old Wet Wet Wet's nutrition. She states; 
'Every older horse can benefit from having Bettalife PharmaQuin's joint care supplement to help maintain the spring in their step and jump'. 
Whilst Wet Wet Wet has been using Bettalife' PharmaQuin Joint Complete HA the pair have won the British Showjumping National Championships in August; which Annabel claims has been their biggest success of the year. The course was up to height and proved difficult for the forty-nine competitors who entered the class with Annabel and just three other riders clear after the first round. However, Annabel rose to the challenge with an incredibly fast jump off finishing clear in a time of 44.12 seconds, winning her the title. 
The fun doesn't stop there though. Annabel has an exciting few months ahead competing at the Horse of the Year show in October and Roosendal in December. We are also looking forward to seeing her at the Liverpool International Horse Show at the end of the year.
