Your horse has different nutritional needs in the hot summer months than they do in the winter months. With all of the equine supplement options available, choosing the right supplements for your horse can feel overwhelming. But not to worry, we’re here to help you decide what’s best for your horse, whether you are a casual trail rider, or competitive barrel racer, eventer, show jumper, or participate in any other equestrian sports.
Here’s our favorite 6 supplements that work together to keep your horse healthy and happy during the summer months:
Hydration is an important part of your horse’s health year round, and needs special attention during the summer months when they are sweating more (and often working harder!) than the rest of the year.THElectrolyte™ has 82 minerals that are essential to the body’s health and well-being. This supplement provides positive effects on organs, respiration, circulation, connective tissue, nervous system functions, and causes rapid rehydration. Use daily when your horse is under excessive heat or stress, and as needed for competitions and strenuous rides.
Muscle Mass™ helps support an increase in lean muscle, while adding weight, increasing water intake, improving stamina and promoting a faster recovery time. This is a great choice for young horse development, as the natural ingredients help maximize your horse’s full potential and bring your hard keeper to a healthy weight. This supplement also comes in T.H.E. Muscle Mass™ PLUS, a great option for use while actively competing because of its USEF + FEI compliant ingredients. Additionally, you can customize this supplement with up to 4 blends (including Ulcer Prevent / Bleeder, Breather, Cough / Immune), allowing you to create the perfect supplement for your horse’s unique needs year round.
T.H.E. Super Daily combines vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs to create a complete super daily supplement. This supplement addresses Blood Flow, Hooves, Digestion, Joints, Muscle Strength, Bone Density, the Immune System plus Mineral and Vitamin Deficiencies. All ingredients in T.H.E. Super Daily are carefully selected to help supplement proper nutrition to all areas in the equine body making this a superoverall general health formula.
G.I. Ulcer Support is a stand-alone ulcer prevent supplement and will support your horse’s overall health and performance through digestive wellness. Ingredients such as Papaya, Aloe, L-Glutamine, Turmeric and others deliver nutrients that target healthy structure and function of the entire digestive system – including the stomach and hind-gut. G. I. Ulcer Support is a holistic, natural option in the prevention of digestive tract ailments, including gastric and colonic ulcers. You'll see the results in a healthier appearance, temperament, and performance. Recommended to use after GastroPLUS for continued maintenance support.
Competitions and events can lower your horse’s immune system and make them more susceptible to equine diseases. We developed theImmunoPLUS™ supplement to give your horse’s immune system the healthy boost it needs to ward off potential illnesses. This supplementprovides the Nitric Oxide precursors necessary to facilitate maximum absorption of this proprietary blend of immunity-boosting herbs, vitamins and amino acids. Nitric Oxide plays a critical role in the immune system, being used by white blood cells to destroy fungi, bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and parasitic worms (helminthes). To maximize the horse’s ability to fight diseases, especially those that your horse is likely to encounter when traveling to competitions, it is crucial to support this natural defense.
Using these supplements will not only help your horse look and feel their best, but will also give them the best possible chance of staying healthy during the summer months while traveling to competitions and events.
