Achieve Equine’s April Horse of the Month

Achieve Equine, LLC is pleased to announce April’s It’s About the Horse® contest winner: Bachloretta “Etta”, a 9-year-old Quarter Horse mare owned by Madison McCaffity.

The It’s About the Horse campaign is designed to highlight a horse’s past (and current) achievements, and Etta stood out amongst the nominees with her heart of gold and her ability to overcome setbacks. “In March 2020, she had an accident during an event in Waco and fractured her ischium bone in her pelvis. She was out for 13 months recovering but made her comeback and returned to competition in May 2021”, shares Madison. “Another setback occurred in May 2022 when I noticed her breathing was off. My vet scoped her and found she had a paralyzed flapper and she had to have surgery to remove the flapper for her to be able to breathe better. Once again, she made a comeback and returned to competition in August 2021. When she was able to compete again, I decided to start using FLAIR® Strips to make sure Etta was getting all the help she could get to be able to breathe better during her runs”.

Congratulations to Madison and her equine athlete partner Etta! Go to to read more of Madison and Etta’s story and to nominate that special horse. Winners will have a spotlight on Achieve Equine’s Website, receive 2 complimentary Six Packs of FLAIR Equine Nasal Strips, and will be featured on Achieve Equine’s social media and to their email audiences.
