TheraPlate Crowns Slim Shady its Peak Performance Award Winner at AHA Sport Horse Nationals

TheraPlate Crowns Slim Shady its Peak Performance Award Winner at AHA Sport Horse Nationals
Nampa, Idaho (October 18, 2018) – “Ever since he started doing what he was bred to do, he’s become quite the little man,” said Sharon Miller about her Half Arabian-Half Dutch Harness Horse, Slim Shady, who was awarded TheraPlate Peak Performance Award winner at the 2018 Arabian Horse Association Sport Horse Nationals, September 18-22, in Nampa, Idaho.

Driven by Miller’s daughter, Debbie Griffin, and trained by Robert E. Wise, Jr. of Wise Choice Stables, the 15 year-old bay carriage horse not only handily trotted away with the TheraPlate Peak Performance Award but also two national titles — as A/HA/AA Scurry Obstacle and A/HA/AA Timed Obstacle National Champion – a reserve national championship in the A/HA/AA Pick Your Route, and finishing third in their driving nation in the Gambler’s Choice.

“Going fast is what Slim Shady likes to do,” said Griffin, who began driving in 2011 and has been having the “time of her life” ever since, especially at Sport Horse Nationals.

“We were more in sync than ever before. This was our show,” she said about her horse and classes. Slim Shady’s peak performances earned him and his team a TheraPlate Revolution Therapy Platform for a three-week trial. “We’re very interested in trying this out,” mother and daughter agreed.

It’s a wise choice and ample reward for this California-based team. “We really have to give credit where credit is due,” Debbie said. “Bob (Wise) taught me and Slim Shady everything we know. Without him, my mom, and my horses, I wouldn’t be lucky enough to do this. It’s a phenomenal experience to discover how much fun I can still have.”

“We’re very grateful for TheraPlate’s support at this show,” added Miller, who says the AHA Sport Horse Nationals have been a part of her family’s life for almost a decade. “This is a wonderful showcase of the Arabian horse’s versatility.”

Versatility is a hallmark of peak performance, which is why TheraPlate is the Official Therapy Plate of the US Equestrian, providing equine athletes increased circulation and pain reduction, enhanced muscle tone and overall improvement in the quality of their warm-ups and cool-downs during training.
