In the 21st century, horses still contend with the same ailments that have plagued them since they started being "managed."
“The body heals itself and nutrition provides the resources to accomplish the task.”

NUTRITION AGAINST DISEASE
The underlying cause of most disease and injury is nutritional deficit, and it is often compounded by lack of liberty and herd life.
The open secret to taking nutritional deficit out of the equation is prevention and management. The choice is yours: invest your resources in developing and enjoying the horse or spend your time and money treating the diseases and injuries one by one as they strike.
When you take nutritional deficit out of the equation, the horse moves into another realm. It doesn’t happen over night because it happens deeply and naturally, but it does happen.
If this is what you want for the horse in your life,
you’re in the right place.
Equine super foods will put you and your horse in a new jurisdiction. This journey there will change your horse’s life for the better. The territory has been mapped. The journey begins here and now.
nutritional deficits one-by-one, is like taking your horse to a
trailhead at the base of a huge mountain.
He begins the journey with hundreds of pounds on his back. His head drops, his back sags, his joints and muscles ache, his organs strain.
But every day, as nourishment is delivered to the cell, some of the burden falls away and instead of straining, tiring, breaking down, getting injured or sick, he feels steadily better.
Every day, he covers more ground with less effort and less wear and tear.
By the time he reaches the top of the mountain, he is a new animal.
His hooves have hardened and self-healed. His eye is bright and his coat is shiny.
His body is sculpted and smooth.
All systems are finely tuned.
He is a vision of beauty, power, vigor and nobility.
He is the horse unburdened by the thousand stresses of modern life.
His mind and body are poised, ready and willing.
And when you ask him for more, he doesn’t just move, he gives you a whole new gear.
According to a survey of leading horse publications, the five most common and dangerous equine ailments are:
Colic kills over 80 percent of horses of all ages. Episodic colic and other gut weakness, like ulcers, often result from the use of drugs to treat pain. It’s a vicious cycle until you introduce super foods.
Ulcers afflict even more horses than colic. In clinical trials, 11 to 93 percent of horses, including foals, were found to have gastric ulcers. The link between anti-inflammatory drugs, internal bleeding and ulcers has been well established, but super foods can break that link.
When a horse is over-stressed, he or she starts to break down. Often this shows up as infertility. When environmental stressors are corrected, super foods repair the damage and get the horse back to breeding fitness.
Hoof destruction begins in the gut! If caught before the hoof structures are completely destroyed, rest, correct feeding and super foods help bring an otherwise healthy horse back from the brink.
is often a symptom of osteoarthritis, an immune system
disease caused by inadequate nutrition and exacerbated by over
work. When management is adjusted to allow recovery,
super foods help the horse recover and go on to develop
