Lucia and Benita compete at numerous events throughout the season and any business to join their team will receive top exposure.

“The Triple Crown program of feed, supplements and fibers can create a successful feeding program and is unlike any other product line. The program is designed to address your concerns about proper equine nutrition, its benefits, as well as the dangers of improper feeding and dispensing of supplements. While feeding your horse Triple Crown® feed, supplements and fiber may not automatically place your horse in the winner’s circle, it will help her maintain high performance levels, and keep her healthy and in supreme condition.” Plain Dealing Farm is proud to be sponsored by Triple Crown. A superior feeding program is a must for our horses and with Triple Crown feeds we have just that.
