Testimonials:

"I don’t have a horse in my barn that I don’t use the Sore No-More Liniment on. It’s so easy to use because I can apply it under wraps, blankets and after workouts. I am so excited they’ve come out with the Sore No-More Performance line so that I can be worry free when competing."

"I noticed that one of my best 3 year olds was fatiguing quickly in his workouts so I decided to add Assure Guard to his regimen. We saw improvement almost instantly. The peaks and valleys in his workouts diminished completely and he stayed consistent through his training, enabling him to compete at the NRHA Futurity.”
