The United States Eventing Association (USEA) is excited to announce GumBits has returned as a Prize Level sponsor at the 2016 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships presented by Land Rover (AEC). GumBits has generously agreed to provide prizes for all AEC prize bags. This year's AEC will be held August 31-September 4, 2016 at the Tryon International Equestrian Center in Mill Spring, North Carolina.
"I am honored to once again sponsor the American Eventing Championship on behalf of GumBits, chewing gum for horses," said Principal Shereen Fugua. "In recent years we have had so many high performance eventers contact us letting us know the positive effects GumBits has on their competition horses. We are thrilled that High Performance Equestrians & Olympians such as Steffen Peters, Lauren Kieffer, Hawley Bennett Awad, Lauren Billys, Kate Chadderton, Matt Brown & Bobby Meyerhoff just love our product. This interest encouraged us to get involved with U.S. Eventing for their annual championship sponsorship which we plan to do each year."
Wellington, Fla. -- From the moment Shereen Fuqua, founder of GamBit Atlanta Inc. and proud sponsor of Marcus Fyffe Dressage, met Olympian David Marcus and Nicholas Fyffe, she knew they were a special pair. Marcus and Fyffe, international Grand Prix dressage trainers that are based year-round in Wellington, Florida, are dedicated to providing top quality training and care for their horses. Since adding GumBits into their daily routine, their horses are more relaxed and happier then ever.
I was thrilled to see GumBits in the December 2015 A Horse Box and couldn't wait to try them. Turns out someone else at my barn wanted them too, and my sample disappeared one day out of my grooming tote! I can only assume some kid got hungry... I really don't know. The folks at A Horse Box were nice enough to send me more samples to try out on Champ, so here's our review on GumBits!
First thing I did was put one of these in my mouth. I figured I needed to see what exactly I was feeding Champ, and the best way to do that was to eat a couple. The little candy balls were hard on the outside (harder than I expected) and waxy on the inside. They are slightly sweet and minty. Not bad! The waxy insides stuck to my teeth a bit and I chewed around a bit trying to get it off my teeth. It took a while, but it finally wore off.
