Meet our team of ambassadors; they have all had success from using our products and help us spread the word so we can help more horses, pets and peoples lives!
Bourbon, Paisley and Eleven
Bourbon, Paisley and Eleven are three Working Cocker Spaniels from Surrey, England. Bourbon is seven and a half years old, Paisley is seven years old and is a rescue dog and the newest member is Eleven, at just nine weeks old and already enjoying the health benefits of The Golden Paste Company!
The dogs compete in Agility, Obedience, Obreedience, Parkour and beat during the shooting season. They also take part in the Good Citizen Gold display at Crufts and Discover Dogs with the Midlands-based display team. They are hoping to qualify their brand new Obreedience team 'The Cool Cockers' for Crufts. Bourbon and Paisley have completed all of the Good Citizen exams and Eleven will begin very soon.
Their favourite things are food (raw fed), walkies, balls and the beach.
Nicky and Bailarin
Nicky Margieson Schellander is one of the UK’s only professional female jousters and trick rider. Nicky owns a PRE-Spanish stallion named Bailarin and has owned him for nine years. Nicky lives between the coast of North Devon and Exmoor with her husband and adopted barn owl.
She has many years’ experience in live action jousting stunt shows, plus working with horse stunt teams in the film and television industry. Her roles have included training horses, riders and actors, and she has worked on films such as Snow White and the Huntsman, Hammer of the Gods (where she doubled with actor Charlie Bewley), the TV series Merlin, and many others.
Her skills and passion are in armour jousting, stunt riding, mounted combat, skill at arms, sword fighting, sword fighting on horseback, shooting on horseback, and mounted falconry.
Nicky has also trained in the USA in full contact (or heavy armoured) jousting, working with The Knights of Valour and The Knights of Mayhem. This involves so much training and physical endurance that only around eight women in the USA perform. The armour weighs around nine stone. Female competitors pit their physical and mental strength against men. Training horses to both carry and wear horse armour needs a relationship with a large amount of mutual trust and respect.
Within the UK, Nicky has worked with various live action teams such as The Knights of The Damned and others.
Two years ago, Nicky was diagnosed with ovarian cancer for the second time in four years. She harnessed her determination to get back to what she is passionate about; horses and her health. Intrinsic to that journey, was turmeric.
In 2019 Nicky worked hard to become a Special Action Artist or SPACT and was selected by a London SPACT stunt agency in summer 2019.
Her stallion, Bailarin, is her key partner for work and life. Both a majestic and incredibly intuitive horse, he also has experience working on photo shoots. Their partnership is based on trust and freedom.
Nicky is also a free diver, competing internationally with a depth record of 42 metres, and a four minute 36 second breath hold. She won bronze in the UK Depth Championships in 2019and came fourth in the Infinity International Depth Games in Cyprus.
Nicky lives by the mantra; ‘If you love your life, you will and can, find a way to keep fit and look after yourself. If you want to enjoy and savour each day live to the fullest without compromise.’
Her hobbies and work continually push boundaries in health and wellbeing, as do her individual skills in pressurised situations and performing in high stamina environments.
Rescuing Shetland Sheep and Ponies
Frances and her family moved from London to Shetland over 20 years ago and now live in a traditional Shetland Croft - people and animals. Frances breeds and trains Icelandic horses, whilst rescuing Shetland ponies and sheep.
Having had three spinal operations, Frances wants to live a pill-free life working the croft and riding her Icelandic horses. To help achieve this, Frances takes the High Strength Turmeric Capsules every day. Her rescue sheep all eat TurmerAid for breakfast and because of this Lambie, especially, has been given a new lease of life. He suffered from joint-ill when young, which has resulted in bone-on-bone arthritis, but you would not know this to see him run and jump. The anti-inflammatory properties combined with the analgesia make this a safe product to use daily. The difference in his daily quality of life is enormous.
Winter can be very tough in Shetland and, as well as the stud and competition horses, Frances has her much-loved old, retired horses living here too. TurmerAid plays an essential role in their daily lives. She has also used it with success for varying medical emergencies, e.g., post-operative care for retained placenta, inflamed sheath, kicking injuries, sweet itch, and stress. Currently her riding horse, who has a vivid imagination, eats it to keep his hooves on the ground!
Turmeric, in its many forms, plays an important part of Frances’ First Aid kit - both animal and human.

Maisie, Arnie & Prince!
Say hello to Maisie, Arnie & Prince! Maisie is mum to Arnie, Prince, and her horse Zen. Arnie is a keen horse rider at just 3 years old and has been riding since he was 15 months old on his adorable Welsh pony Prince who is 8 years old and stands at 11hh. Prince is a cheeky, funny but sometimes grumpy pony, Maisie describes him as the Danny DeVito of horses! Arnie and Prince’s days consist of lots of love shared between them both including Arnie caring for prince from cuddles to grooming. Their favourite thing to do is going on adventures to see their local ducks and to the river with mum Maisie by their side. Their goal for next year is to join pony club and attend some fun rides so watch this space and follow Arnie and Prince as they grow together!
Maisie states: “we love the product TurmerAid as it has really helped Zen with his joints more than any other supplement we have tried. It is so palatable that the horses never turn their noses up at it like other supplements we have tried. It is also great that it is in a pellet form as it can be fed from your hand! The fact that this supplement is made up of high-quality natural ingredients is also a huge bonus”.
