"My horses play their hearts out for me. Steadfast Equine and Sore No-More keep them pain free and able to play throughout the year without considerable inflammation or heat."

"I was struggling to keep one of my best horses, True, in competition during the prior two seasons and decided to start her on Steadfast Equine and use the Sore No-More Gelotion after workouts. She lasted our entire season and I was extremely pleased to have her in every game."

"My first experience with the Assure products was when I had a mare recovering from salmonella. Her stool was very loose and the veterinarian said her recovery time would be around 5 weeks. We started her on Assure and Assure Plus and her stool normalized within 2 weeks. I’ve since used this combination on several of my horses who are prone to tying up with good success as well. I recommend these products to anyone who is serious about their horse’s complete nutrition."
