    Hi Beryl

    I promised you some feed back on the Ultimate Mix that I ordered for my horse, Sundance.

    Honestly I cannot see any physical difference in coat and muscles after 1 month, however my rides lately have been wonderful and Sundance has been more willing and subtle. I have struggled in cantering to the right, as he seemed very stiff and that he had trouble in bending to the right while cantering, but this past week he seems like all he has been doing his whole life is cantering to the right, haha – a very smooth and bendy canter.

    He gets his grain with the Ultimate Mix twice a day and his grain gets soaked, well that is what I have asked the barn guys to do, but sometimes I notice that they don’t soak it. I do not know if it makes any difference whether his grain with the Ultimate Mix is soaked or not. He got half a measurement twice a day which should give him 1 measurement in total per day.

    I live in a high desert and I do not know if the dryness in the climate has an effect on the results of the Ultimate Mix. Our climate is very dry and we do not get much precipitation. However right now we got a lot of snow, but because of the dryness in the air all the snow evaporates faster than it can melt and turn into puddles – which gives us a nice winter wonderland without puddles and slush ice.

    For your info Sundance is half arabian and half saddlebred.

    Kind regards

    Hi Beryl

    Just to give some feedback – My horse are OTTBs – so they are typically prone to gettting some form of “sickness” with any tiny change in the weather, food, training etc. I have all of them on both Ultimate Mix and Immune mix.

    I am happy to say not of my horses as of date have coliced, developed slight offness of personality and their coats are shinning like freshly polished silver! Ive had them for over 3 years!

    Your products are amazing and definatly the best way to help maintain a happy, healthy horse without adding unwantyed chemicals into their system for those who are serious about competing their horses, without the risk of blood tests turning negative for trace amount of illegal drugs

    Thank you for the great products!

    Hi There,

    Can someone please explain how this product works with regards to dosage.
    Is it based on the horses size, age or weight? Or is there something else it is based on?
    Or is it a general measurement to be given to all horses as standard?

      Hi Carolyn. It is an average dose based on a 500kg horse. Because it is not a medicated product and because the herbs I use are very safe, adjusting the dose based on your individual requirements is not complicated. One scoop is both safe and effective for a Shetland or a Draught, but it is safe to adjust the amount either up or down, according to you needs. ?

    I have to say as I explained before I was battling to put weight on this particular horse. Well he has been in the same training schedule but have increased his training . He has definitely picked up weight he is moving more freely. Most importantly he has filled up.
    As always I am very happy with the results I have achieved.
    What I love about this particular supplement, it’s a combination for overall good health in the horse.

    My nooitgedacht is going on 18 and shows all the signs of being insulin resistant. He seems to pick up weight by just looking at food. He gets speedibeet twice a day and lots of oathay which has been soaked in water. I need advice as to which mix to use for him. He is unshod (has very good hooves), generally very healthy, but for the past year he has diarrhoea. Would UM help for tummy upset. His tummy is really round but the rest of him looks normal. People often think he is a pregnant mare 🙁

      The Ultimate mix contains probiotics and prebiotics, which have been proven to decrease the severity and length of diarrhea. So, yes, definitely worth a try.

    I have actually just bought myself a new horse and I am going to start him off on ultimate very soon and I will try and remember to take some photos and send them to you. He is straight off the track and is all ribs at the moment and he looks like a teddy bear with the stuffing coming out!! As did my mare I bought last year and she is absolutely amazing now. I obviously work them but the herbal horse brings on their muscles, power and condition so much quicker. They also stay in peak health over the off season.

    Would like to put my 15year old WB mare on ultimate mix, she is healthy and strong with no stiffness or problems, she was only backed at 9 and we compete in dressage and showjumping, want to prevent any problems later in her life, will this mix be the right one? Ultimate? Connie Lourens, Newcastle, Kwazulu Natal

      Connie, it is absolutely the right thing to do. Even though she has no problems at the moment, the Ultimate mix will help with the maintenance of the joints as well as digestion, muscle building, immunity and general good health.

    I have a 4 year old TB gelding, he doesnt have any problems that I know of, and hopefully never will. I would like some suggestions on which product I can get him for healthy digestive system, good for coat conditioning, and will help prevent colic. Which product will suit this youngster? Thnx lots 🙂

      Allene, I’d actually recommend Ultimate mix. You’ll get a lovely shiny coat, healthy joints and good digestion. And hopefully no colic, although you can never actually guarantee that!

    I’ve just recently put my horse (TB) on The Herbal Horse line… its look/seems fantastic..

    My horse has joint problems (clicky- locky hocks) and two very bad cracks on the front of his hooves but good hooves over all im told, just a problem with those cracks. (he’s unshod)..
    Anyway, i’ve had him on plenty different supplements and they for a while work but not for long…

    He recently stood on a 6inch nail while i was riding, it went into the side of the frog at an angle to about 2inchs deep. Luckly my farrier was at the stables at the time, she took it out and cleaned it and bandaged it with animal intex. I called the vet straight away and gave him a top up tetanus and some anti-biotics. And just said to keep it as clean as possible. I have been doing so. But he will be off for about 4 months.

    I definately want to put him on the Farriers Mix and the Rejuven Mix as well as the Immune Mix with the virus’ going around.. And when he’s back in work the Sport Horse and Endurance Mix, as he has very little muscle and even in work doesnt pick up condition like you’d think, as well he can barely get through a half hour lesson. So for now would like him on the Farriers, Rejuven and Immune Mix…

    Would putting him on the Ultimate Mix also help, or with those three together already is it a waste?

    Thanks Jess

      Thanks for your comments.
      With an unshod horse, Farriers mix or something similar is a very good idea. It takes a while to work as the good hoof needs to grow down, but once it has, you shouldn’t have a problem with cracks.
      The Immune mix for this time of year is also an excellent idea. All of mine are on that one. 
      The Rejuven mix has pain-killing herbs in it, so will help with the wound as well as with the joints.
      To use Ultimate mix as well as these three would probably not be necessary. But, when the pain from the nail wound stops, you might find that Ultimate mix is a better maintenance supplement.
      But, of course, you know your horse better than anyone else, so see how it goes. And let me know, please.

      I never replied to this but i thought you should know…

      When he stood on the nail and we called the vet, the vet said that with keeping it clean and bandaged every day it would take 4 months (AT LEAST) for Moi to be sound and for the hoof and hole to heal. I had said that seems abit long, i doubt it will, Moi was always strong and heathly. I thought maybe 2.5 months

      So I put him on the Farrier and Rejuven and the Immune
      I also then stopped bandaging, but kept it clean

      I was quite happy and chuffed to find that after only 1 month(!) -he was sound, the hoof had grown out, the hole was clean and sealed and he looked amazing!

      My vet was quite shocked – (i had to resist the urge to pull my tongue out at him)

      But after one month Moi was sound and ready to be ridden again, he hadnt lost any condition either!

      Brilliant brilliant stuff!!!

    I’ve been usung the Ultimate mix on my WB mare and am very impressed with thr results. A year and half ago she had a tumour removed from her stifle and it has taken many months of recovery. We had issues with her being quite stiff on cold days and she was not happy using her left hind during her flatwork or jumping.
    After three weeks usuing Ultimate Mix she is much happier working her troublesome stifle and seems to have a bit more oomf without too much fizz. A few months ago we were considering retiring her to hack but now are planning some eventing and jumping shows as she’s back to her old form again with the help of Herbal Horse.
    Great Product!

    I am so excited to start using the Ultimate Mix. Thanks Herbal Horse for sucha wonderful products. Orpheus is a Friesian TB cross, who is 17 years old. He is doing a bit of dressage and we hope to enjoy the Saldanha endurance ride in February next year. I have heard so many positive things about the Ultimate Mix, and he did well previously on the Rejuven and Immune Mix.

    I am soooo excited about this product!!! Viking has been on it now for two months and is doing amazingly! (Vikes was diagnosed with Ringbone in 2006 and subsequently always been a little stiff through the colder seasons.) In 2007 and 2008, he was on the Rejuvenmix, which is also an amazing product and on it, Viking was supple and happy. Now, since being on the Ultimate Mix though, he has come through winter with no aches, pains or stiffness. He completed a 20km ride out the other day with 3 endurance horses and let me tell you, his nose was always ahead of the rest! He is just facing each day confidently, comfortably and in his usual magical way! Ultimate mix seems to have given him a new little spark and in addition, he is also looking like a million dollars!

    Thanks Beryl for your awesome products – BOTH Rejuven mix & Ultimate Mix!

    Not many youngsters can keep up with the unicorn now! 🙂
