The winner of the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award at the June 21-24 Surefire Eventing Trials was Sara Kozumplik Murphy riding H. Poiroit. Kozumplik Murphy was thrilled with the event and especially excited about winning the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award. “I always have a great time competing at Surefire Horse Trials, it is wonderful to have a first class event in our area. Surefire goes the extra mile in regards to the welfare of our horses, and I always feel like my horses pull up very happy at the end of a day there. Thank you, Vita-Flex, for supporting this wonderful event,” said Kozumplik Murphy.
The next Surefire Eventing Trials is scheduled for September 28-29th, when a second lucky winner will receive the Vita Flex Victory Pass Award. “Vita Flex is committed to supporting our Victory Team members and their events,” says Vita Flex brand manager Tanner Clark. “We will be awarding beautiful Vita Flex Victory Pass neck ribbons, fly scrims and a bucket full of Vita Flex products for the winning horse. Vita Flex stands behind all serious competitors and supports them in their efforts to improve themselves and their horses.”
