Merial Launches “Protect the Dream” Video

Message is About Determination, Commitment, Passion

The dream began from the first time you put your foot in the stirrup. Even then, you knew making it happen wasn’t going to be easy.

A new inspirational video by Merial, makers of LEGEND® (hyaluronate sodium) and other performance horse products, features genuine riders and trainers who know what it takes to jump bigger, race faster and turn cleaner. “Protect the Dream” shows how they make their dream a reality.

Sometimes, however, passion, determination and commitment aren’t always enough. While performance horses are powerful athletes, joint problems can sideline them. Don’t let anything come between you and the dream. If you are training to compete, consider talking to your veterinarian about LEGEND and how it can help your horse be a little more ready to show. LEGEND is proven to decrease joint inflammation and lameness in horses with non-infectious synovitis1 and has earned its reputation with more than 20 years of treatment success.

Protect your dream. Become a Legend.
