Each month, we select 5 horse care products and put them to the test in a side-by-side competition. We select 3 Expert Equestrians, among various disciplines, to rate and review each of the products based on specific criteria. We then post the judges' cards and the winning line up below, to help you find the perfect products for you and your horse! A percentage of the proceeds of the products reviewed will be given to the charities that our experts have chosen to represent. For this month, our experts rated Medicated Shampoos.
We have posted each of our experts scores and critiques, so you can get all the details about these products and how they stack up to the competition.
Area of Expertise: Missouri Fox Trotters Location: Buffalo, WY Charity: Operation Underground Railroad Bryce’s love for horses began at birth, growing up with quarter horses and thoroughbreds. In 2006 he took an opportunity to work for Stephens Foxtrotters, training show horses as well as facilitating a private special needs riding program. Since then he has lead 7 successful show teams, competing on State, National, and World Platforms. His involvement in Foxtrotters has lead to many World Champion Titles, both in the performance arena and versatility arena. Some of his most notable accomplishments are 2014 Open All Around Versatility World Grand Champion, 2014 Open All Around Ranch Horse World Grand Champion, 2016 National OFS Champion, and most recently the 2020 CH World Grand Champion, & 2020 All Around Versatility Reserve World Grand Champion. His love for people and horses has also shown to be a successful combination. These gaited horses have been very useful in his management of the special needs program, due to their smooth and rhythmic movement they encourage riders to have greater mobility, and coordination. Dallin Story is the star of this program, he doesn’t let cerebral palsy hold him back from being a tough competitor. In 2016 Bryce was able to coach Dallin to winning a World Champion Title, and two Reserve World Grand Champion Titles. Some of Bryce’s most enjoyed moments with horses is seeing his students hard work pay off. Currently Bryce is prepping his 8th show team for what he hopes to be a successful 2021 season both on National and World levels.

Area of Expertise: Polo Location: Charity: Wellington Boys and Girls Club Geronimo Obregon became a professional at age of 14 after playing the highest level of polo in the US possible. His father was a professional as well, and ever since he can remember he has been riding and playing polo. Geronimo has played in the top high goal tournaments in the US including the US open, C V Whitney, Gold Cup, Pacific cost open, East coast open Texas Open, and the Westchester cup. He has played in top level tournaments in many countries, including Argentina, Australia, Mexico, and Guatemala. Geronimo has been fortunate to win in many tournaments, but the ones he is most proud of are the Texas open, Pacific cost open, and Westchester cup -- which he represented the US against England. Similar to the golf and tennis, there is a rating system (handicap) approved by the governing bodies of polo. It starts at -2 and goes to 10 goals, which only handful of players are rated across the world. Geronimo currently holds a 5 goal rating with the dream of achieving 10 goal status.
