EnviroEquine & Thoroughbred Makeover Horse

With just about one month to go before Alum and I head off to compete at the Thoroughbred Makeover in Lexington, KY, we are in full show-prep mode! Alum has competed at a local schooling show and performed with flying colors, barely batting an eye at the chaos of the show and warm-up ring. As the training side of things coming together well, one of the things I have had to keep in mind is safeguarding Alum’s health and soundness.

Enviro Equine’s OmegaBalance

While Alum is a pretty easy-keeper, I keep in mind that he had suspensory desmitis (like a sprained ankle, but in his hind suspensory), so I want to make sure that there is no inflammation in that leg moving forward. When I was deciding how to best support a healthy inflammatory response, I knew I wanted to focus on two primary nutrition components: Omega-3 fatty acids and Vitamin E. I also had to consider that Alum would be heading into the show rings in the near future, so a shiny coat would be a huge plus. When I was considering all these factors, one product immediately came to mind: Enviro Equine’s OmegaBalance.

Based on North American-derived, cold-pressed Camelina oil and pumpkin seed oil, OmegaBalance is truly a premium product. It’s relatively-local sourcing, non-GMO ingredients and plant-based ingredients were all deciding factors that turned me towards Enviro Equine’s OmegaBalance oil, rather than other similarly-focused products. I had only introduced the oil into Alum’s diet for a week or so before I started to see the obvious results in his coat and its amplified shine. His leg had remained without inflammation and he is really looking like a show horse now.

The only other supplement that Alum is on is Enviro Equine’s ElectroBalance. Alum puts his whole heart into everything that he does, and as a result, he sweats freely and abundantly. To help support his recovery, I give him ElectroBalance to replace key electrolytes and organic minerals that he sweats out. His after-workout and next-day stamina has definitely improved, and he always has a healthy water intake, so I’m a happy rider!

With Kentucky quickly approaching, Alum is shaping up to really look and perform like a show horse!
