PLYMOUTH, MA – November 30, 2016 – You want to keep your horse healthy all year long, and SmartPak is here to help. Many horses can benefit from receiving their supplements throughout the year, and while there are some types of supplements that you don’t need all year, many of the most popular supplements are critical even in your horse’s “off-season.” When it comes to supplements, consistency is key. Four areas of support that are key to your horse’s health no matter what time of year are joints, hooves, digestive, and skin and coat.

Regardless of a horse’s age, breed, discipline, or workload, his joints are at risk. Your horse’s body is designed to repair and rebuild the normal “wear and tear” to joints that comes with being a horse in its natural state of roaming and grazing. However, due to the increased demands of riding, training, and competing, your horse’s joint tissues might benefit from daily support. Joint supplements can help by making sure your horse always has a steady supply of the ingredients he needs, like glucosamine and chondroitin, to cope with the stress of exercise and maintain healthy joints.

In addition to protecting your horse’s joints, it is also important to support strong, resilient hooves all year round. Along with regular, professional maintenance from your farrier or trimmer, environmental management, proper nutrition, and plenty of exercise play a vital role in hoof health. Daily support from a supplement that provides nutrients such as biotin and amino acids, which are needed for healthy hoof growth, is smart no matter what season it is.

Because digestive stress can occur on any day of the year, keeping a daily digestive formula in your horse’s supplement program is a smart choice. Hindgut supplements provide researched ingredients like prebiotics, probiotics, yeast, and enzymes to help your horse’s body manage digestive stress so his hindgut can stay healthy and balanced. As an added bonus, several of SmartPak’s digestive supplements in SmartPaks are eligible for ColiCare, a free $7,500 colic surgery reimbursement program.

Finally, you want your horse to look as good on the outside as he feels on the inside. A shiny coat starts with healthy skin, so if you want your horse to gleam when he sheds his winter coat next spring, you should look to support him all year long. Skin and coat supplements provide fatty acids like omega 3s and omega 6s from sources like flaxseed, rice bran, and fish oil to promote skin cell health. By giving your horse what he needs for healthy skin all year, you’ll help make sure that he’s never short on shine. 

Consistently feeding your horse’s supplements in the right amounts is just as important as feeding them year round. That’s why ordering your horse’s supplements in the SmartPaks feeding system is a smart choice. SmartPaks are custom made, pre-measured daily dose Paks of your horse’s supplements that are clearly labeled with your horse’s name for fast, accurate feeding every time.
