When I bought “Hub,” my 5yo gelding, he was constantly nervous, always had loose stool, and you couldn’t ride around or do slow work at home without him staying nervous. I knew he was going to be on the trailer with me this summer being seasoned so I had to help him the best I could. Hub has been on Fortitude Equine for about a month now and is a completely different horse.. He has a healthy stool, and has calmed down to where I’ve ridden him around at Reno, Greeley, etc during perfs and has kept his composure. Thank you Laramie and Erik for putting time and passion into a product that truly helps the industry.

About a month ago, Erik and Laramie Jackson gave me a sample of their Fortitude Equine Pellets. I was anxious to give them a try on my 7 yr old gelding, Joey. Prior to feeding the pellets, he was on the muscle and breathing fire while roping on him. When I would warm him up, he just wanted to go fast the entire time! It was like holding onto a bomb, ready to blow at any moment. I knew he would be the perfect horse to see if CBD would help him relax. After just a couple days, you could notice the effects of the feed. We went back to loping nice, slow circles, without being a fire breathing dragon. His mind was much calmer, allowing him to watch cattle again and not just want to run! I am loving the pellets and just ordered a 5 lb bucket! I am looking forward to continuing to feed it to Joey and trying it on some other horses as well.
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 may 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!
