Introducing our new Territory Manager, Zelina!

Introducing our new Territory Manager, Zelina!

We wanted to learn a little more about our newest Territory Manager Zelina Coffey and what brought her to Protexin Equine Premium! We had to share some of her fantastic life experiences with you all...

''I started riding when I was 4 years old at a local riding school on a 16.3hh horse called Dusty so I looked like a pea on a drum and learnt it was a long way down when you fell off!! I owned my first pony at the age of 8 years old called Kanga who literally was like a kangaroo… famous for bucking me off or throwing me against a wall in the indoor arena if he didn’t like the look of the jump! 

I was show jumping mad when I was younger and competed most weekends in unaffiliated competitions winning many speed classes with my extremely quick ex driving pony called Badger.

At 17 I progressed to affiliated show jumping with a horse called “Ambells up the Wall” or Swede for short, a Swedish warmblood, and also with my ID/Tb gelding. Groomed for an International showjumper for a while whilst competing myself and learning my craft. A year later I qualified as a BHSAI instructor and taught freelance and worked in a Tack shop in Tunbridge Wells whilst fortunate enough to have my own horses at home.

Over the years I have held various sales and sales team managers to support my horses and then 12 years ago fulfilled a lifelong dream and opened my own tack and feed shop which I ran for 3 years on my own. Selling all horse feed, rider clothing, horse rugs, tack, supplements, lotions and potions. I loved being able to help horse owners keep their horses as happy and as healthy for as long as possible with advice and keeping up to date with all the latest information regarding feeding etc.

My chosen discipline is now dressage. As I'm older I decided it was safer as I wasn’t bouncing quite as well as I used to if my horse and I parted company!!

In 2016 I joined Dengie Horse Feeds as an Area Sales Manager where I expanded both my feed and nutrition knowledge by selling fibre feeds, holding weighbridge clinics and advising horse owners on their horse's diets, etc.  I'm now fortunate enough to be working for Protexin Equine Premium as an Equine Territory Manager and I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone!
