Different strokes for different folks!

When it comes to feeding we all know that all animals have different needs. Some products that work well for others may not work at all for your animal. It’s about trial and error. It doesn’t mean you don’t take good care of your horse if someone else’s horse looks better they just found a formula that works for them. Heed their advice, give it a try and keep in mind your horse as an individual and customize it as you go.

Always consult your vet and send in a manure sample to get your horses current needs and levels so you can start your search and ask for recommendations.

With me, I used Horse Guard products for many years and swore by the Super Gain when I was rehabbing multiple horses. I saw amazing results and always thankful for their sponsorship. Then I found that Dac Bloom worked better on some of my halter bred horses so I used that for a year or so. Now I use horse guard Flow which is a flax seed oil and amino acids, Cool Calories all mixed with their usual grain and Smart Pak vitamins. I also give them electrolytes after days of hard work to replenish their bodies after they sweat a lot. This new formula has been great to get the winter youngster back on track and looking good!

I’m not biased on using any one product whatever works for you stick with it but be mindful of your horse’s needs as they may change and what worked before may not now.

Just be careful of high sugar, lots of corn and molasses feeds as they cause strain on the horse’s GI system and could provoke a different demeanour than intended.

I specialize in problem horses, youngsters, horse rehabilitation and achieving softness and a better relationship between horse and their rider. I not only train horses but humans as well. Not your typical riding lesson but I can, if you so choose, teach you to train your horse! I’m always available to help answer questions or share photos or videos upon request to better illustrate my advice. I’ve mastered the “don’t break the bank” way of keeping your horse healthy and cared for while on a budget. If you walk into almost any large barn in Oregon you’re bound to meet a horse I trained or sold! I’ve trained over 623 horses and counting! I post updates as I receive them from clients and buyers. Thank you for taking the time to browse and hopefully learn something new!
