To date, we have over 18 research papers on our products including published,
peer reviewed papers in scientific journals. No other company invests in such robust research, and we are proud to be the industry leaders. We have over 10 Equine Degrees, two Veterinary Surgeons and two PhD's all working tirelessly to support the health and welfare of your horses. We have worked with The Animal Health Trust, Hartpury College, University of Edinburgh, Oklahoma State University, and numerous Veterinary practices throughout the world to bring you the latest research and products available.
More and more customers demand to see the research behind products, and rightly so. There are far too many supplements claiming to be the next miracle cure without any evidence, and as a company, we believe in complete transparency. We declare all the active ingredients in our products and are more than happy to compare any product.
Unlike 20 years ago, we have more and more research into equine nutrition, and today it is inexcusable to formulate products without the correct levels of active ingredients. Horses are over 5-times the size of humans. Put simply, using human levels of ingredients for an equine supplement is like feeding humans a portion suitable for a mouse!
"Supplements are not a replacement for veterinary medicine or veterinary treatment, however in my 30 years in the equine industry I have seen the dramatic effect that appropriately formulated supplements using the right ingredients or combination of ingredients at the right levels can have health, behavior, and performance. Unfortunately there is very little regulation within the equine supplement industry, and it is possible to formulate and sell supplements with no knowledge or formal training in this area. At best, this just leads to owners losing money and horses not benefiting. At worst, the health of horses can be damaged by supplements containing toxic or irritant ingredients or ingredients at the wrong level. In the absence of sufficient regulation that protects consumers and their horses, there is a need for companies that have recognized expertise in this area and that can be trusted not only to provide the best supplements but also who have the expertise and knowledge to support customers, especially in the case of very challenging conditions."
