Do you use any supplements in your show horses? If yes, which ones and what changes have you seen while using them. If no, why not? Yes, a good electrolyte as we live in a hot area. Generally Troy brand is good, keeps them well hydrated, keeps good energy levels. I also use a biotin based supplement called Cal-plus as my horses have bad feet, definite improvement in their hoof wall strength and appearance.
Do you use any alternative therapies in your show horse? If yes, which ones and what changes have you seen while using them. If no, why not? Most definitely use massage therapy. Since starting this I have had increased performance from all my horses, they are more relaxed and their muscle development has improved out of sight! Not really alternative, but I choose to have barefoot horses, initially this was a challenge with their bad feet, but it has turned out to be a top decision as none of them have had as much foot trouble since I took off the shoes![/b]
