Hanne Goes for Gold!

Double Paralympic gold and team silver medallist Hanne Brenner will be in London next summer if her championship horse, Women of the World, is fit. We at Life Data Labs are proud to be   sponsoring the pair from Wachenheim in south-west Germany.

Hanne, nine times German para-equestrian champion since 2002 and an individual gold and team silver medallist at the 2009 European Championships in Norway and 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky, USA. Since 2007 she has ridden the horse “Women of the World” and won 15 international medals, including seven golds! The pair also regularly competes successfully up to advanced level in regular dressage competitions.

But the 16-year-old chestnut Hanoverian mare, by “Walt Disney” out of the “Pik Bube” mare “Pik Lady”, has a history of hoof problems. She was suffering from laminitis six months before Hanne bought her in 2006 and, though the problem responded quickly to a different feeding and training regime, the mare showed persistent poor hoof growth and crumbling horn around the nail holes.

“I used lots of products containing biotin and even tried using biotin alone, but without any obvious success,” says Hanne. “It’s only since I’ve been feeding Farrier’s Formula Double Concentrate” in combination with the application of “Life Data Hoof Disinfectant” that there’s been a real noticeable improvement in my mare’s hooves.” Now Hanne is confident that “Women of the World” will soon have normal hooves – ideally in time for the London Paralympics.

With many other successful stories to look back on, Karen Zetsche, European Sales Representative of Life Data Labs, shares Hanne’s confidence. “It’s great to see the mare’s progress and I’m delighted we can help them both realise their full potential. Of course, everyone at Life Data Labs is keeping their fingers crossed for London 2012.”

“Farrier’s Formula” was created 30 years ago by Dr Frank Gravlee, founder of Alabama-based Life Data Labs, to promote healthy dermal tissue in horses. He tested blood collected from hundreds of horses to determine which nutrients were lacking in horses with poor-quality hooves. The supplement has been the number one recommended product by US farriers for 12 consecutive years.

Hanne Brenner has been partially paralysed from the waist down since she fell while eventing at Luhmühlen in 1986. Riding took a back seat for the next ten years, which saw Hanne become a keen wheelchair basketball player, study business administration and begin working for Deutsche Telekom, her employer for 17 years. It was 1998 before she had a horse of her own again, but it did not take long for the competition bug to bite. The following year, in Denmark, she won her first world championship. Hanne now works for Lotto Rheinland-Pfalz, which is a big supporter of her sporting career.
