Stuart Fitzgibbon, formerly with Castleton Lyons in Central Kentucky, has been appointed director of sales and client development for the new U.S. division of Open Nutrition. The horse supplement company specializes in all-natural amino acid-based products and has products ranging from joint supplements to performance and recovery supplements, as well as others. Open Nutrition founder Julian Norrish initially developed the supplements in Australia and the United Arab Emirates.
“When I met Julian it was clearly evident through his enthusiasm, knowledge, and expertise of amino acids science that Open Nutrition’s products will be of huge benefit for all horsemen and women in our business,” said Fitzgibbon. “The company’s product line is especially important in the present environment where natural supplements can play an important role to increase the general competitiveness and well-being of all horses.”
Products are available both online and from Kentucky’s Hagyard Pharmacy. Fitzgibbon said the supplements are subject to regular product certification from the University of Kentucky’s Equine Analytical Laboratory.
