As a horse owner, do you find yourself struggling to determine which supplement may be right for your horse to assist with a lameness, health condition, or just enhanced performance?

When it comes to nutrition supplementation for horses, patterns are often readily apparent and through a better understanding, you can choose your 'weapons' more appropriately.

Do you find yourself jumping from one supplement to the next, either due to a lack of efficacy in that supplement helping your horse or due to the influence of another trend in the industry?

Do you find yourself struggling to manage a lameness, metabolic issues, or other health condition, despite your best efforts?

A better solution lies in understanding that each horse is different and that no matter how two horses present, having similar external conditions, the pathway that led to the development of those issues is likely different in your horse than the other.

This is what creates the lack of efficacy in supplementation when we generically prescribe them to a horse.  It really becomes a game of chance, if you don't dig deeper and see the underlying problem.

While this may seem complicated to many owners, the patterns present are often readily apparent and through a better understanding, you can choose your 'weapons' more appropriately and with that, enhance the results.
