Hi Form is principally run by mother and daughter team Antoinette and Nicci Foster and below you can meet their own horses, the inspirations behind their work every day.
Antoinette's Pretty Movin' MR (EFA name Hi Form Symmetry) sadly passed away on Thursday, January 31, 2008 but he was her constant partner since 1999 and they had competed successfully in Dressage over the years, he will be very sadly missed. We have included him on this page as a dedication to the continued inspiration he provides all of us..
Even with our own horses management is absolutely of the highest importance, providing the correct horse feed, herbs for our horses or pain management for our horses is something that we know a great deal about, so our horses are fed a very natural diet of JT Johnson natural formulas, hays and naturally Hi Form supplements, simple, cost effective and highly effective.

Stable Name: Mega
Breed: Quarter Horse A2 Registered
Sire: CD Rom
Dam: Kings Golden Era
Career Highlights: 2006 Qld Reining Futurity Champion, 2006 NRHA Nationals Finalist Open Futurity, 2007 Top Ten Open Derby Reining Australia Nationals; 2006 3rd Rocky Rush Campdraft; numerous placings in campdrafting and reining.
Diet: Mega has a large paddock with a good natural mix of native grasses, medic and clover. As it is now quite hot and dry with summer in full swing, he has just started on oaten hay. He gets fed one hard feed a day which includes: 300g Combo Chaff, 500g Johnson's Natural Formula Elite, 10g CompletaVite, 20g ProflamAid and 20g TopLine.
Why do I feed this way?: Right now Mega is finishing up breeding season and getting slowly brought back in to work which is just light lunging at the moment.. Being a stallion who represents our stud, it is important that he is always looking his best so I keep him on TopLine all year round.
Future Plans: Nicci and Mega are hoping to just get out in the competition ring in 2012 in Dressage and Reining and then take it from there.
Nicci and her partner John have many horses, eleven in total and stand Mega and a Shetland Stallion. Their new website will be launched shortly.
Stable Name: Jock
Breed: Quarter Horse
Sire: Tribulation (IMP)
Dam: Oh So Special
Career Highlights: Although only just turning 4, Jock has had a fairly strong career. He has competed successfully at State and National levels as a Hunter Under Saddle horse and is now moving along well in his Dressage training.
Diet: Jock is fed three times a day, morning he receives 2.5kg Johnson's Natural Formula EveryHorse Weight Gain with 20g CompletaVite, 5g HerbaNerve, 12g Breathe, 25g ProflamAid Plus, 10g BioEquus and then gets lucerne and pasture hay at lunch and dinner.
Why do I feed this way: Jock is in full work and due to being in a small paddock with no pasture at the training facility, he requires a good quality fibre to maintain his digestive health, and enough energy to do his work without becoming hot or fizzy.
Future Plans: Antoinette plans to take Jock out in Dressage by the end of the year!
