Muscle Pro is an ideal supplement for your horse, containing high levels of rice bran oil, providing slow release energy and essential fatty acids, rice bran oil has also been seen to improve muscle definition and muscle to fat ratios in the horse.

We would advise to add a mineral bucket to her paddock while she is turned out, to provide low levels of any minerals she may be lacking, while also providing a distraction for her in the field.

If you are not already feeding an electrolyte daily, we would advise the use of Xtrolyte Blue, throughout training and competition, to support recovery after training and competition. Depending on his existing diet, we would also advise the use of a daily multivitamin such as Excel Eventing, containing vitamins, minerals, a prebiotic for digestive health and omega 3 fatty acids to support performance. If you feel your horse needs more than this, or is already being fed both an electrolyte and a multivitamin, we would suggest the use of Equicell, to support performance and recovery. Equicell contains high levels of Nucleotides, the building blocks of new cells, which are often lacking in horses working at higher levels or under stress from competition and training.
In this case, we would advise Equicell, a nucleotide supplement to support the immune system, and lung tissue, as well as supporting performance and recovery. Including this product has been seen to support the horse’s immune response when triggered by pollen. We also have a product containing high levels of antioxidants and a powerful mycotoxin binder, which when used alongside Equicell offers additional support to the horse after exposure to pollen, molds, and mycotoxins, all of which have negative effects on performance, recovery and general health.
All of our products are FEI approved and approved by the jockey club so you can compete on any of them.
