Wellington, FL – Following the example of Olympian Joe Fargis, David Tromp of Beyaert Farm won the Absorbine® Myoplast® 1.30m first timed round for a second week in a row during the ninth week of the FTI Winter Equestrian Festival. Fargis was the first rider to capture the Myoplast title two weeks in a row, winning the classes during the third and fourth weeks of the world-class winter show circuit.
Tromp, who is only 22 year old, was pleased to follow in the footsteps of the famed Fargis and have a repeat win in the 1.30m first timed round. Tromp’s victory was once again aboard the nine-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare Topas, owned by his family’s Beyaert Farm out of North Salem, New York.
"Topas has really been very consistent in the past four or five starts," Tromp said, adding that he thinks the mare is a great jumper.
Tromp’s Beyaert Farm is a family affair as both his brother and sister also compete and Tromp stays busy showing and training horses that his family raises and that they import from Europe. Tromp, who trains with Barney and McLain Ward, said he stays on the road three out of four weeks during the peak of show season. "After WEF we will head to Lake Placid, Canada and the Hampton Classic," he added.
Winning the Absorbine Myoplast sponsored class for a second time gave Tromp the opportunity to take home another Absorbine gift basket filled to the brim with Absorbine products. "We already have one horse in our barn on the muscle building supplement Absorbine Myoplast and there are many other Absorbine products we use that we really like," he said.
Tromp is only one of many riders who has come to rely on Myoplast, an amino acid supplement formulated to support muscle performance in horses, for use on his high performance horses. The supplement is sold in local tack shops, in catalogs and feed stores. For more information on Absorbine Myoplast, visit the Absorbine website at www.absorbinemyoplast.com.
