I cannot recommend Elite Equine highly enough.

Our horses have been on this supplement since the end of last year following the Associated Championships,where I met their representative. The improvement in their way of going has been noted not only by us but by all who have seen them work or compete. Both horses look a picture of health, with gleaming coats and are incredibly well, having used Elite Equine throughout winter. Our vets have endorsed Elite Equine recommending its use , not only for the use in older horses with age and work related changes but also for our younger horses as a preventative measure against future injuries.

Great product!

I have been using Elite Equine for a few weeks now and my 14 year old dressage horse feels amazing. He has had 31 small melanomas removed over 3 surgeries and the scars are healing better than expected. I have been allowed to ride and school over the recovery period. My horse has been very well in himself with no sign of stiffness and happy to take more weight behind. It’s looking as though we may even nail the flying changes, something we have been struggling with for a long time. I will not be going back to my previous joint supplement !
