I like to keep my horses on as few supplements as possible. My thought is to provide quality grain and forage, and you really won't have to supplement all that much... but there are some cases where supplements do come in handy for certain issues that arise. Here are some examples.
Louisa was in season earlier this year... so she was acting super mareish, and her ability to concentrate while riding was at an all-time low. I try to stay away from Regu-Mate if I can, so I decided to give Venus by Cavalor a go. It is all-natural and really was a game changer for her. She went from super grumpy to just a little grumpy, and her ability to listen and concentrate did a 180. I highly recommend this product for anyone who has a mare that acts like a mare.

When Howdy first came to rescue, his system was not use to high quality feed and hay he was starting to eat. He had diarrhea, and it wasn't pretty. We used Probios Equine Paste to help his system while adjusting to the new foods. It contains live, naturally occurring microorganisms to help maintain a healthy microbial balance during times of stress. It works like a charm... every time.

For any of the horses at the rescue, if we work them hard one day, or are in a competition, we will give them Equioxx tablets. Equioxx is an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. You can use it as a competition driven pharmaceutical or you can use it every day if you have an older guy that is a little more arthritic. It is a very cost-effective way to make your horse feel his best. You can learn more about Equioxx by clicking here. Remember, it is a pharmaceutical drug, so you will have to have a prescription from your vet to order.
Venus, Pro-bios and Equioxx are my most recommended supplements. None are long-term (unless you have a really special mare, then Venus can be long-term), but they provide great results when a specific need has to be met. If you have any questions about any of these, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
