“When I found out my mare, Princess Deelites MHF had been selected to be part of the USA Young Riders Team to compete in the World Endurance Championship in Italy this fall, I knew I needed to get her in top shape, but be careful. I turned to EPIC and found exactly what I needed. Dr. Rullan and his entire staff have been fantastic. Using the Aqua Pacer, Vibe Plate, Swimming pool, Track and Eurosizer, she is in the best shape of her life. Can’t say enough good things about Equine Performance Center!” states Julie Jackson-Biegert.
