“Our livelihood revolves around the longevity of our horses. They are athletes and we’ve got to take care of them too so that’s what Equinety’ products are for. What I love about their products is there are no sugars, no starches and no fillers. It’s 100% amino acids, you feed it daily, and it promotes cell regeneration so it’s keeping them sound and feeling fresh.”
“Equinety is great! It’s been over two years since we introduced it to our rodeo horses and our horses that are competing at the highest level and we’ve had great success. We’ve seen that it kept their muscle mass better and helped in their recovery time. You could see the horses never got run down or tired. They were rebounding like they had never even competed while they were traveling thousands of miles. It is a great product to have and we will continue to use it in our program!”

“I first heard about Equinety in 2015 and I initially started one of our horses on the supplement. We were really happy with the results, so we’ve put most of our horses on the supplement now. I’ve found that their coats are extremely shiny and their muscle recovery is much quicker after working. We continue to use Equinety, especially on our top performance horses.”
“I noticed that my horses focus better on what they’re supposed to be doing in training and while races. They are quicker and are overall more agreeable. I don’t have to fight with them so much. We gave one of our horses four months off and put him on Equinety. Within three days of riding him, he wanted to stride out and he just felt better. Another thing that I noticed is that my horses are happier.”

“What do you do?” “How do they look so good?” “How do they look so healthy?” The only supplement we use is Equinety! Other people give their horses multiple supplements everyday when they rodeo like ours do, but all we need to use is Equinety and we win. My daughter’s barrel horse is 20 and we started her on Equinety. I firmly believe that even at 20 she can still run just like she did at 13 when we got her!”
“I’ve been using Equinety for four years, and I love the product. We have all of our competition horses on it, and when I have horses come in who are tight or tense through their muscles, I feel it keeps their muscles very supple after working. Their coats are very shiny and their feet seem very good which says to me that the horses are healthy. I would recommend putting any horse on Equinety!”

“I was originally introduced to Equinety a few years ago when I purchased a horse who was on Equinety Horse XL. I saw how shiny his coat was, how well he maintained his weight, and how well he recovered after training sessions. Since discovering Equinety I have incorporated it into the routine of my other horses. Equinety gives back important nutrients that the horses lose when they are training which really helps them recover and feel great the next day. They look healthier and they are very happy in their work. I am proud to represent such a high-quality company.”
“Adding Equinety to Magna Wave helps the horse feel better all over since Equinety helps horses at a cellular level as well. On both of my horses and my client’s horses that use Equinety, I’ve noticed that every time I go out to Magna Wave them, I’m picking up less sore, less tight, less reactive areas. That tells me that these horses are feeling fabulous. In one horse, a 16-year-old gelding who competes in upper-level three-day eventing, we’ve noticed that his topline is just blossoming. He’s getting all new, correct muscle through the top of his neck and over his back because he now has the proper amino acids. These upper-level horses that exert a lot of energy need the extra amino acids that might not already be found in their diets in order to help support the protein synthesis to build muscle.”

“After I started my horse on Equinety’s Horse XL, I noticed a significant difference with his recovery time and his coat looks much shinier. I really believe that his muscle growth, recovery time, the shine and luster of his coat, and his overall well-being have been enhanced by Equinety.”
“I compete with three horses, and for two of my horses, Shotgun who is 27 and Pete who is 25, Equinety has been a big part of their success. It has made a big difference in their health and well-being. We bought my third horse, Bolt, at the end of 2019, and he’s been on Equinety since then. We can definitely see a difference in his recovery and his hooves for the better.”

“A friend of mine told me about Equinety and how it had helped her horses. My horse is older, and he lost a lot of muscle tone. I ordered a 30-day supply of the Equinety and within just two weeks he looked like a different horse. His hair and coat looked better, he was more filled in on the topline, he had brighter eyes, and he just all around looked a lot better. That was two years ago. He was 15 or 16 years old when I started him on it, and he is still one of my primary barrel racing horses.”
“We first purchased Equinety about a year and a half ago and we saw results after only one month. My older mare had urinary incontinence, but Equinety helped her with that.

“I have to say Equinety is a miracle to me. I have had four horses on it and I have seen a huge difference with every one of them. Within just two weeks I have seen my hot horses calm down so much. He is hot during workouts and never able to work near a barrel during practice without getting amped up. He is going in the gate on his own and calm. They workout in the arena now and he looks like a collected, calm cow pony. It’s unbelievable. Another horse I put on for arthritis and back hocks. He has never looked so fluid, sound and relaxed.
Our rodeo hopeful powerhouse has been driving us crazy trying to figure out what was even wrong with her for a long time. She would bounce all over and even rear to a dangerous point when asked to elevate the level of workout. She was checked from head to toe with no explanation. Equinety was really a last ditch prayer and it worked! She has been so calm and working like a cow pony and finally back working barrels. Equinety has been a life saver for us and my horses have never felt and looked better! Do not let your horses miss out on this! Thank you Equinety.”
“Since I have started using Equinety Horse XL on multiple horses, I’ve noticed changes in all of them. I am always running my own trials and once I find something that works I stick with it for life! Equinety has not only made the coats of my horses shine like mirrors, I’ve also found a more focussed mind and a physical endurance which is much needed in dressage. My husband, [Bertrand Le Griffon], owns show jumping horses, and he has noticed the same amazing changes. I would recommend Equinety to anyone who is looking to help their horse be the best athlete it can be!”

“I have used Equinety for quite a while now, and at the time we had two of three horses that had chips – one in an ankle and two in their knees. With Equinety, the recovery time is just so much faster. Anybody that runs barrels knows that is a really big thing. We have to make sure our horses can recover and be back running as quick as we can possibly get them there.”
“Since we at Plenty Tiny Ranch started using Equinety’s products, the recovery time on our horses has drastically reduced and our horses seem considerably more focused. Everything from recovery after hard workouts and competition in very hot weather to surgery has been drastically reduced because of Equinety’s accelerated cell regeneration! All our horses’ coats seem healthier and shinier, and hoof growth as improved too. Equinety as been a great asset to our equine partners.”

“The theory behind Equinety is what convinced me to try it. I don’t use a lot of supplements, but leveraging amino acids really made sense to me. My horses definitely look better and they feel good. They’re coats are shiny and they’ve muscled up really well. We always have trouble with soundness, but it seems like it’s been less trouble since starting my horses on Equinety. Plus my horses like it and eat it well. I had Cornerstone on it and he shined up and gained healthy weight – he felt great. For my mare, she was tying up a bunch and after everything we did we couldn’t stop it. As soon as we added the Ultimate OEC oil to her diet, she shined up, gained a bunch of healthy weight and wasn’t tying up anymore. She looked good and felt good, and that made the biggest impression on me with how great this Ultimate OEC oil is.”
“I highly recommend Equinety! I always want my horses on their A-game come show season. I have one gelding that can get stifle issues, and after being on Equinety for one month I’ve noticed such a huge difference in his personality and his performance! My boys will definitely be on Equinety long-term.”

“I started four of my horses on Equinety Horse XL and each with different results. Legal Majority is my FEI partner and after the first week I noticed that he had more flexibility in his muscles, seeming to warm up faster and he was more supple in his movements. The other big improvement is his coat – he has been shedding out much quicker this year and his spring coat is gorgeous! Sonnentag FGF is also on the product, and the main thing that I have noticed is his stamina and ability to be stronger in his hocks/stifles/hindquarters. He also appears to recover faster from intense workouts and not be fatigued. I would highly recommend Equinety Horse XL as a daily supplement to aid in stamina, joint and tendon health as well as a beautiful coat!”
We love, love, love Equinety products! Their Ultimate OEC oil is a must try! We see such amazing results in days and our horses have better stamina, better coat, more focus and it helps with soundness. I have put so many horses on their products and have seen it benefit every horse!

“Since starting to give Equinety’s Horse XL to my high-performance dressage horses, I have noticed many positive changes. My horses’ well-being is my number one priority, and they have benefited greatly with Equinety, in particular, showing an increase in muscle mass and improved focus. I feel that they are maintaining peak performance with the use of just one product, and their hooves and coat have never looked better. I am honored to be using this extremely high quality supplement.”
I’ve been using Equinety for about five years. I had a couple horses with thin soles and my vet recommended I start them on Equinety. We took X-rays and after a few months the results were amazing and their soles grew several millimeters. They weren’t sore footed at all and I was sold on the product. All my horses have been on Equinety since then. Their coats are shiny, they have minimum back soreness. The top three benefits I’ve seen using Equinety is improved hoof quality/growth, less lameness issues and the overall appearance of my horses are better. I love Equinety!

“It is the only supplement I ever used that I felt like we could see a difference. It feels like I have tried every supplement that was ever marketed to me. If there was an ad and I saw it I would try it, but nothing worked like Equinety works. As far as results, the recovery is the number one thing that I have seen by just keeping them feeling good and going good. No matter how hard we run them they just continue to come back and continue to look good and feel good. When I started on Equinety I was just researching an amino acid to give my barrel horses. There are a lot of supplements with amino acids on the market, but they are all pumped full of tons of sugar. Some of my horses have sugar issues and I feed all ten of my horses a low sugar feed. When I found Equinety the selling point was the fact that it wasn’t full of sugar – it was all natural.”
“I started my horses on Equinety Horse XL to target multiple systems in the body with one product! Since then, I have seen my amateur racehorse and hunter pace partner show improved hind end fluidity, improved recovery time even in the intense summer heat, nice weight and muscle gain.”

“I am a part of the International Barrel Racing Association and I first heard about Equinety because they sponsored one of the districts. One of the prizes that I earned for the end of the year was a tub of Equinety Horse XL. When I got a filly from a rescue in Oklahoma she came to me really underweight and malnourished. After 30 days using just good feed, hay and only Equinety products, she put on every bit of weight she needed and she looked amazing. I also have a palomino gelding that we were treating for originally for EPM. He had lost a lot of muscle mass kind of got in the way. After treating him for EPM, we wanted to help support his immune system. So, I put him on Equinety and within 60 days, he is big and beefed up. Equinety has helped both of my horses in numerous ways including recovery and performance.”
“When Equinety first came out I put my gelding on it and he was on it ever since. His top-line filled in so nicely and he thrived on Equinety! I recently acquired a Pinto/AQHA mare who has navicular and really thin soles. We originally tried feeding different biotin supplements, but she’s picky and refused to eat any of it. I gave her Equinety — she eats it well and it helped make her more comfortable. She used to throw shoes all the time but she holds them now much better due to improved hoof quality.

“My roping mare Star has always struggled to maintain good health and weight throughout her entire life. We stumbled upon a 15-day trial of Equinety, which led to continued use of the product and ultimately the doorstep of this great team. We have finally found something that has eased her recoveries of hard workouts and helped maintain a healthy weight. She is a healthy 1100 pounds with stronger feet and running harder than ever. Star and I love Equinety!”
“I cannot say enough about Equinety’s products! When we started our 20-year-old horse Booker on Horse XL his coast went from dull to shiny, you could tell he was feeling so good and he recovers quickly after a race. He used to get abscessed in one hoof, but he’s never had an issue in that hoof ever since starting him on Equinety. When Equinety’s new OEC oil was released, we added that to his feed. He’s been on it for about three months and it works amazingly! We swear by it! We were shocked by the difference we’ve seen it make — he’s never coming off it.”

Horses have always been a big part of my life. I feel like Equinety’s products really bring a balance to each of my horses. They don’t just target one particular problem – it gives great results specific to each horse’s particular needs. I’ve seen my horses dapple out in less than two weeks and I’ve seen improvements in their overall disposition. I even had one horse that went from being nervous and anxious at horse shows to now being more relaxed and focused!
“We don’t like to cut corners and we were very limited with what we could use on our horses due to racing regulations. However, a friend that I respect recommended Equinety Horse XL. Turns out, it is the only product that we used for our horses last year! Now we use it religiously on all of the horses. We are winning! It is hard not to be impressed. When we started using it, the whole package came together with our horses showing well, running great, recovering fast and feeling amazing.”

While running barrels is her main passion she does enjoy riding English disciplines during summer camps. In 2020, she won her first 1D Youth Buckle Series with her OTTB named Axel.
“I first heard of Equinety in 2018 when we decided to start my OTTB Axel on it. He was on and off with soundness. He has very little digital cushion in his front feet and without the proper shoeing he was never 100% for more than month. He would be ok and then we’d run him and then we’d have the give him two months rest because his hooves would get bruises, abscesses, and chips. The farrier had to glue on his shoes because we couldn’t put nails in. When his feet were hurting, he didn’t feel well and didn’t eat well. When we started him on Equinety it really helped him! Not only do his feet feel better and they are so much stronger but his coat has improved and he’s developed more muscle.”
“We are very pleased in how our stock have been looking and performing with Equinety products! We are even more excited about the potential for all of our stock for the 2021 rodeo season as we begin to incorporate Equinety into our feed program on a regular basis.”
