Voyeur wins Rolex IJRC Top Ten Final in Geneva

We have long been fans of Voyeur, mostly due to his handsome good looks it has to be said, but also because he was not always an easy horse to work with. Kent Farrington and Voyeur have had to work at their partnership but their climbing of the rankings shows that the partnership is there and they are certainly a lot of fun to watch in a jump-off!

Erin Gilmore wrote for www.noellefloyd.com that she was lucky enough to watch Kent and Voyeur back in early 2012 in a qualifier for the CSI4* World Cup Qualifier at WEF.  The class turned out to be Scott Brash's first win with Hello Sanctos!   Kent looked like he was attempting to steer a tornado around the arena according to Erin but they managed to make it to the fences and finished a well-deserved 3rd with Kent admitting at the time to not having the most control during the jump-off!  Noelle quotes Kent as saying Voyeur has gotten more manageable than when they first started. "I try to keep his mind as calm as possible. The jump-offs are actually easier than the first round because you can kind of let him go his own speed and he likes that. So the first round I try to keep him calm and I do my best not to let him get too aggressive." said Farrington.

Kent has been using Horseware's Sportz-Vibe Massage Rug on his competition horses since it launched in 2014 and we see pictures of Voyeur enjoying his Sportz-Vibe rug at shows and at home on a regular basis. 

The potential benefits of Sportz-Vibe include relaxation, aiding recovery after exercise or competition, helping to prepare muscles for exercise when used prior to tacking up, increasing circulation of oxygen and nutrients to tissue and stimulating lymphatic drainage to reduce build up of lactic acid.
