_DSC2885-RASMUS-LUNEBURG--Rasmus Lüneburg. Photo by Janne Bugtrup.Rasmus Lüneburg is managing the ´Holsteiner' breeding and training stable of his parents, Hof Idenburg in Hetlingen, Northern Germany. Apart from training young horses and ambitious riders, the 32 year old is an internationally successful show jumping rider. And he puts his trust in Equine 74.


Several studies have shown that around 60% of all horses have stomach problems. How would you describe your experience with that matter?

Rasmus Lüneburg: ' In our stable we have come across this subject as well. The most severe symptoms were shown by a young mare. She would hardly accept being ridden, she was rebellious towards the rider´s leg and as a result bucked and showed other forms of bad habits. Because of that, we suspected that she may suffer from a painful gastric ulcer. ´
