"Carrot-Apple Cleanser" juice drink / Raina Paucar
by Raina Paucar
Some days after I ride or train Bahamut I’m physically exhausted. Other times, I find myself low on energy, even before I head out to the barn. I’ve made many changes in my lifestyle and specifically with my diet. While I always worked on my strength and stamina during my racing days as a jockey, I didn’t always eat properly.
Recently, I’ve become more active in taking responsibility for my whole health. It was a difficult transition at first and now I feel amazing. I truly feel better than ever. My spirits are higher and I have more energy to ride and train with my horse.
