When we met our boy 6 1/2 years ago he was severely abused by previous stable staff, farriers, owners and cowboy trainers trying to break him. He was terrified of humans, became extremely protective of himself and would either flee if he could or when trapped he would come out fighting, trying to stomp to death the potential threat. He would have to be heavily sedated for any doc. appt or shoeing. The only thing that kept him alive was that he was worth a lot of money as a stallion. When he became ours we immediately gelded him, got a gentle non-resistant trainer, found compassionate farriers and doctors... spent lots of time building trust and teaching manners. But he still had PTSD when it came to his feet, he was unpredictable, would rear up, and crow hop with no warning, making it very dangerous and exhausting for everyone involved. Within 1 week of using Fortitude Equine, we went from 3 hrs to 1 hr.... our farrier told us whatever you are doing keep doing it. It has been year now, we are on our third container and his trimmings have been at less than 1/2 hr with no dangerous behavior for several appts. now, just lots of yawns, lip licks and deep signs. We are so thankful to have been given Fortitude Equine by a good friend who knew our struggle, because it was REAL!!!

I love the results I have seen from feeding these pellets! My horse's overall attitude and health are excellent.

I have been feeding Fortitude Equine to JK Reckless Lady, and her Dash Ta Fame daughter, and it has improved their attitude and health. I highly recommend this supplement for horses that are high strung or lack focus.

I have had my mare on these pellets for about 9 months now. She tends to be watchy on the ground and reactive, especially in the spring/summer with her cycles. I have tried several other products with no help. I noticed a big change in my mare's edginess and she seems more relaxed and focused. Definitely worth a try!

"My 5-year-old barrel horse Abu, is just starting to be hauled and seasoned. Abu was extremely reactive and spooky which caused her to be very unpredictable in every environment. Handling her was frustrating, to say the least. With Fortitude she has become a new horse. Her ability to think and process information has improved tremendously. Her sensitivity levels have decreased and her emotional stability is much better. She is able to make a conscious decision instead of overreacting. She is now adapting to different situations more confidently and has become much easier to haul and ride. I am finally excited about her future!"

Why does my horse need hemp?

The Endless Potentials of Hemp

The benefits of feeding hemp to our equine partners are far-reaching and varied because of the many different naturally occurring compounds in the hemp plant. It can help with stress and anxiety in nervous horses, to decreased inflammation in performance horses who are using their bodies to their fullest potential, the benefits are seemingly endless, and supported by peer-reviewed research. Don't just take our word for it, check out our blog, where we cite the scientific literature that says so!
