The busy time has just begun. We can see that when looking through the pile of mails that reach us. That’s what a rider wrote us the other day: “Shows are starting, and Little Looping – that’s my horse – only feels stressed out while riding in warm-up arena that’s crammed with horses. That’s why I am investigating if there is means to protect the stomach from excess acid.”

Feeding can be a thorny issue for horses with stomach problems. Order your free  Equine 74 Gastric feed sample here.

Apparently, many riders are looking for possibilities to make their horses feel more relaxed when entering the jumping course, or the dressage arena. This seems to work best when the stomach is healthy and doesn’t cause pain, or discomfort. Our readers are not the only people facing this problem. Even riders at the very top of the game are in the same place.

Even German champion Andreas Kreuzer tells us that his horses often show symptoms of stress, especially during long journeys. Of course, he wants what most riders wish for: His horses should not only perform well, but also be happy while doing so. He has been feeding Equine 74 for one year now, and his feedback is very positive. Read here, how his horses changed their behavior and if they feel more content now.

The German Champion Andreas Kreuzer favors Equine 74 Gastric

On Sunday the 5th of June 2016, Andreas Kreuzer climbed to the top of the podium in Balve as German Champion riding the 9-year-old Calvilot. Like all of Kreuzer's horses, Calvilot is fed Equine 74 Gastric on a daily basis. Kreuzer got familiar with Equine 74 Gastric through one of his horse owners. She wanted to try it on her horses, and Kreuzer thought it was a good idea to test it on some of his own as well.

"I started with two horses that were a bit special: One gelding was very, very thin and he was always a bit stressed when ridden. Then there was one mare that was always on the move; walking around in the box being quite sour all the time. After two months of feeding Equine 74 Gastric, I noticed that the mare was more relaxed and happier and the gelding looked better and had started to build more muscles. Then I decided to feed Equine 74 Gastric to all my horses."

Kreuzer is not only the new German Champion, this season he has had a lot of success as a member of the Global Champions League team Cascais Charms. Together with his team mate David Will, Kreuzer won the GCL leg in Shanghai. Travelling to destinations such as Shanghai requires the horses to be top fit. For long travels and shows, Kreuzer adjusts the dose of Equine 74 Gastric so that those horses that need it get fed a higher amount.

"We feed Equine 74 Gastric individually and from horse to horse, and some horses need a higher dose to cope with the stress that comes along with travels and shows," Andreas explains.  

Kreuzer's horses have now been fed Equine 74 Gastric for one year, and the German Champion is convinced by the product.

"Sometimes I feel that the horses get more relaxed after they have been fed Equine 74 Gastric. I really think it makes a big different when the stomach is in balance. And horses that had problem to gain weight, got in better shape after we started to add Equine 74 Gastric to their diet." I have a really good feeling with Equine 74 Gastric, and I think it is worth a lot when you can do that extra thing to make the horses feel their best!"
