"I believe in the quality of the products and I love the results that I see in our horses. There are many feed products nowadays on the market. Choosing the correct brand for the wide range of horses we have was difficult. Since our horses have been on Tribute, I have seen great results and trust the quality products. I am proud of our horses and I am proud of what I do; feed is what fuels our horses and is a huge percentage of how they can perform."
