Horse owners have come to rely on Vita Flex® Nutrition for innovative nutritional supplements for performance horses. Now the name you know and trust is proud to create a Vita Flex Scholarship for United States Pony Club members as a reward for excellence in academic pursuits and outstanding achievements in Pony Clubs.
The winner of the first Vita Flex Scholarship is Jordan Kettley Werner. Werner is a C3 member of Battenkill Pony Club in the Western New England Region. For more than four years she has been receiving horse training and lessons at Battenkill Valley Stables. Werner has participated in multiple championships and reserve championships at local and regional events competing in a variety of disciplines including Hunter Paces, Competitive Trail Rides, Hunter/Jumper and Dressage Shows, and Pony Club Rallies to name but a few.
“Pony Club has become my favorite activity,” said Jordan Werner, winner of the Vita Flex Scholarship. “I have learned more than I can say, both practical knowledge and experience. I did not expect to receive a scholarship, but I was thrilled when I got the letter saying I had been chosen to receive the Vita Flex Scholarship!”
“Jordan is the type of student all teachers wish to teach,” said Gayna M. Cross, English teacher at Arlington Memorial High School where Werner graduated this year. “As a young rider, Jordan sought my help in her dressage work. Having worked with other young riders, I was immediately impressed with Jordan’s willingness to accept and to put into effect my instructions.”
“Jordan exemplifies the best of qualities of her generation,” said Heather Hoff, vice president of Vita Flex Nutrition. “At Vita Flex Nutrition, we are proud to help her pursue her dreams for a future of caring for horses.”
Werner will be studying Animal Science at the University of Vermont beginning with the Fall 2006 semester and plans to attend Veterinary School after graduation.
