Equitation science studies are revealing, with strong physical evidence, not just how important welfare is but why. New on the SUCCEED Blog. #SeriousHorsePeople #EquitationScience #HorseHealth

Stress, and its far-reaching effects, are more complex than an anxious response to a negative situation and manifest in a wide range of behaviors and symptoms. Learn more about why your horses may be undergoing more stress than think. #MondayMyth

Simply looking at an ingredient comparison chart can be deceiving. It doesn’t explain what those ingredients are intended to do, what amounts matter (more isn’t always better), how those ingredients are combined or work together, if clinical research backs up effectiveness in horses, the quality of those ingredients,
and what (if any) controls are in place for manufacturing.
Here are the questions you SHOULD be asking when comparing digestive supplements for horses, and why SUCCEED has earned its reputation of one of the best on the market.

Those little yellow eggs deposited on your horse's legs, chest and face are not as innocuous as they may seem. They belong to the parasite gasterophilus, commonly known as the bot fly, and as they make their way inside your horse and mature can wreak havoc on your horse's digestive health. Learn about the bot fly's life cycle, how it affects horses, and how to manage and prevent this pesky parasite.

With all of the convenience and cultural reinforcement we experience around this theme of confinement, it would be easy to believe that horses belong in a barn, except when being worked. However, thinking that confinement is normal for horses — and maybe even preferred — is a myth. Keeping horses in stalls or in a small pen more often than is truly necessary is not ideal, and may even be causing damage. ‪#‎MondayMyths‬

‪#‎SeriousHorsePeople‬ Lillian Simons started her horse Willoughby on SUCCEED in December 2014 after winning a case at the USDF Convention. In August 2015, the pair earned 5th place in the Young Rider Dressage National Championship. Here's the difference she saw with SUCCEED:

“Willy was very green when I got him, and he had some slight behavioral problems. He could get hard to contain, very opinionated and at times nervous. I noticed when we started on SUCCEED that his behavior and rideability improved tremendously. He was much calmer both in and out of the ring, and a much happier horse all around.”

Dried forage products, such as hay, chaff and beet pulp provide the majority of the nutrients horses need, as well as up to 70% of their energy. When your horse can extract the full nutrition available from its hay, you may find less of a need for unhealthier processed feeds. Optimizing total digestive health to support full nutrition is where SUCCEED can help. Learn more:
