“Red” (King of Reds) my T.B., ex 5 furlong sprinter and covering stallion, “retired” to endurance in 1997. He has been fed on Equilibra for two years as other feed balancers blew his mind. He was 80-100 mile fit in June 2000, when a serious injury to me put us out of action for 4 months – during which time Red was fed 500gms of Equilibra a day plus forage and had a full 11 weeks off work.
After 6 weeks steady work he has been able to compete a 60 mile endurance race at an average speed of 10 miles per hour – recording 3rd place and the Blue-Chip “Best Condition Award” at the end of the race.
I attribute my success not only to Equilibra but the inclusion, also, of Energest whilst in hard work and during veterinary “holds” during the race as I was conscious of definite energy boost 20-30 minutes after feeding. When offering associated feeds at vet gates, Red’s choice was both Equilibra and Energest every time.
He stays bright and attentive before, during and after the race and is wonderfully well the next day.
