Has anyone used this product? if so what were the results? Here is some info.

Alternative sources of energy, such as rice bran, are now very popular. EQUI-JEWEL, a high fat stabilised rice bran supplement, increases the energy density of a ration, thereby decreasing the amount of grain necessary to fulfill energy requirements of horses during growth, lactation or athletic performance. Replacing a portion of the grain allotment with EQUI-JEWEL helps to limit starch intake and therefore assist in reduction of the risks of digestive upset often associated with excessive grain and minimal forage intake.

EQUI-JEWEL contains a balanced calcium to phosphorus ratio. In its natural state, rice bran is richer in phosphorus than in calcium. Excessive phosphorus in the diet inhibits calcium absorption, which may compromise skeletal integrity or induce developmental orthopaedic disease. Inclusion of calcium carbonate ensures a balanced calcium phosphorus ratio. Therefore, EQUI-JEWEL can be fed without upsetting the calcium to phosphorus ratio in the diet of a horse, and can be used as a calcium supplement.

To achieve superior coat condition, EQUI-JEWEL can be supplemented to horses of all ages. EQUI-JEWEL is a highly digestible and highly palatable source of unsaturated fat for horses. Fats are composed of glycerol and essential fatty acids; elements linked to elastic skin and glossy hair coats.

Use of EQUI-JEWEL can lead to rapid gain in condition. Reports from the field indicate growing horses, hard keepers and equine athletes have shown improved body condition after supplementation with EQUI-JEWEL. Performance horses have increased needs for antioxidants to protect muscles against oxidative damage. For this reason, vitamin E and selenium are added to EQUI-JEWEL.

It's good if your horse needs to gain weight. Otherwise, it's not really needed in most diets.

I prefer to increase hay first, only adding a fat supplement if the horse cannot eat enough hay or hay pellets to put on quality weight.

I have used it before, combined with beet pulp(SpeediBeet) and chaff. I had very good results, although when I went to a different feed store to get some more, after feeding it for a couple of months, the lady there told me that it is meant to be a supplement, fed along with another pelleted feed (i.e. Mitavite Economix or Calm Performer) as they don't get all the nutrients they need from Equijewel alone, although my horse seemed to be doing fine on it.
She suggested Copra Rice Bran as a cheaper alternative and so far it seems to be doing the trick. Are you trying to put weight on your boy?

Yeah, he is looking a bit thin coming out of winter and he needs to be fattened up. I was looking into rice bran but after some research found that it has high phosphorus and low calcium level and needs to be balanced out etc etc.

Um here is a pic.. RedHawk did it help your horses topline at all?

Well, I fed it along with Speedi-beet which is supposed to improve topline, so I'm not sure which one did it, but yes, his topline did improve, not dramatically but it was noticable.

Not a topline pic, but you get the idea. I have better pics, but I'll have to find them and post them later.


However, he's always had a pretty good topline, he's just hollow behind the withers like a lot of TB's.
