The Secret Formula For Supplementing Your Horse

In Nutrition & Diet by HorseMom MaryLeave a Comment

We show our love in many ways

We buy blankets to keep them warm in winter… We add fans to keep them cool in summer… We brush, pamper, and hug them…

Sometimes we even put their needs ahead of our own 🙂

But one of the biggest ways we show how we love
and care about our horse is how we feed them

I’ve included  a special report below…

It includes:

  • The 6 life stages of your horse
    (including important detailed nutritional information)
  • Each of the biggest challenges each stage faces
  • Plus a solution, including the “special attention”
    each stage desperately needs to maintain their health

Here’s One Of  The BIGGEST Horse Nutrition Problems

Veterinary research consistently shows that…
What’s in the feed bin can adversely affect health

Better to PREVENT a problem then try and fix it

Most supplement companies look at your horse in parts;

  • skin
  • hoofs
  • joints
  • digestive system
  • immune system
  • respiratory system, etc.

And they make their supplements fit those problems… Instead of preventing hose problems from occuring.

By the time you need these supplements, it’s too late.

Remember, they’re counting on you…

We found the best way to optimize
your horse’s health, performance and longevity:


  • keeping close to your horse’s natural diet
  • feeding your horse based on their life stage
  • helping them based on their activity
  • evaluating their age
  • considering their weight
  • awareness of their condition

The GOAL is to ensure they meet their individual nutrient needs!
