Kelli Tolbert – NFR Qualifier, WPRA Rookie of the Year 2009

I am extremely particular when it comes to Cleo… especially her feed. She is a finicky eater, so I was extremely skeptical that a low starch, low fat feed could provide the amount of calories she needed to maintain a fleshy body condition while rodeoing. She not only maintained, she gained weight on the road. Even without molasses or other sweeteners she loves the taste, having a full belly and staying interested in feed has improved her digestive health and as a result, her attitude about competition.

Equine Pride provides my rodeo horses with peak performance fuel, but because they consume less hay, it is cost effective to feed my other horses. It sustains older horses and can keep up with the physical demands of a growing colt without sacrificing their mental trainability.

The bottom line is, when it comes to feed and supplements there will always be a new trend… I’m a big believer that less is more. Equine Pride’s simple formulation of all natural, locally grown, high quality ingredients has made my horses look, feel and ride better than ever.

When I travel, the main thing I’m looking for is consistency in my horse’s diet. With Equine Pride they don’t eat as much hay, which allows for a much more regular and consist diet on the road and helps them to stay healthier. I also like how Equine Pride is all-natural and doesn’t get my horses all amped up. And, with Equine Pride, even though I’m riding my horses pretty hard right now, my horses look better, their attitude is consistent and they continue to put on weight.

Nate Baldwin – 2X NFR Qualifier, 2X DNCFR Champion Tie Down Roper

Nate Baldwin

Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed has helped me keep my horses looking and feeling great.  I have traveled down the rodeo road with TRex (19 year old) gelding and Lady Bug (20 year old) mare. Both my horses are dependable because of their ages, but I have struggles to keep them fat and feeling good after all of the hours on the road and in the trailer. Not only am I able to feed Equine Pride™ to my older horses, but my younger horses have also shown great results as well. Equine Pride™ has found a great balance between feeling good, but not getting to hot where it would affect performance.  I strongly recommend Equine Pride™ for any type of horse.  It has helped my horses and it will help your horses as well.

Olin Hannum – Wilderness Circuit Champion, 2x DNCFR Qualifier

Olin Hannum

My livelihood is based on the performance of my horses. So for me, feed is everything when it comes to keeping my horses strong—both physically and mentally. When a horse’s energy is up, it keeps their mind right. Where “hot” feed can change a horse’s temperament, Equine Pride™ helps keep my horses more stable. And, Equine Pride™ keeps the weight of my horses consistent, even when I ride them on a regular basis—keeping them feeling good even after a long haul. Plus, because it’s dry feed, you can take it anywhere and it won’t go bad…at home or on the road.

Stran Smith – NFR World Champion, 10x NFR Qualifier

Stran Smith

It’s no secret that the main key to my success has been great horses. I am known for being a person who pays attention to detail, especially when it comes to my horses’ health. That’s why I feed Equine Pride™. Because when I’m competing, my horse doesn’t know whether I’m roping for $20 or $20,000, I just need him to put everything he has into each run. Equine Pride™ is what helps keep him strong, healthy and ready to give his best, day in and day out.

Theresa "Tess" Andreozzi

We have been using Equine Pride™ since 2007.  I have not found any other complete feed that compares!  Our results have been unbelievable.  We use this feed in our training program for all the horses young and old as well as broodmares and foals.  It gives the performance horses stamina and strength to do their job while maintaining a quiet mind.  We have noticed healthier hooves and growth as well as beautiful coats. The horses love it!It is easy to feed and transport to shows as well.  Since using Equine Pride™ we have noticed the horses maintain their weight and conditioning better after transportation as well as conditioning at shows.  Hard keeper is no longer a word used in our barn!  All the horses love it and maintain healthy weights.

The start of a great performance horse is a great feed program. Since my introduction in 2007 to Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed I have seen an improvement in lean muscle, foot growth and overall body condition.  Equine Pride™ enables me to maintain a consistent and quality feed program at home and on the road.  Today’s cutting horses are elite athletes and Equine Pride™ will give them the edge to compete and succeed at a higher level.  It is a complete feed that I believe in.

We started feeding Equine Pride™ in March of 2009. Since then, our horses look and feel better than ever, including our older horses. In the past, we noticed our horses wouldn’t eat their entire ration of feed, but since we have been feeding Equine Pride™, we haven’t noticed this problem. Even on the road our horses maintain a healthy appetite. We have been able to cut back on the amount of hay we feed them while still maintaining their weight and nutrition. Our horses look and feel great.We have a 12 year old mare that we run barrels on (Hotshot) who always required a high maintenance diet. She was a picky eater and would frequently tie-up. Since we have been feeding Equine Pride™, she eats her ration of feed and she hasn’t tied-up. We have noticed a wonderful change in her eating habits, performance, and attitude. We feel that Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed has contributed to our success this year. Thank you Tom Olsen.

Dan Hansen – NCHA Non-Pro & 10K Non-Pro World Champion

Dan Hansen

By feeding Equine PrideTM Performance Horse Feed, I have seen a difference in the development of our young horses.  They are bigger and stronger and this allows us to start working with them at a younger age, which I feel helps develop their maturity and is important to be competitive.  Also, the feed help us maintain the show horses that are hard keepers.

Michal Bailey - Dressage Competitor

Michal Bailey, Dressage Competitor

I have been feeding Equine PrideTM for the last two years to my thoroughbreds and warmblood horses.  I was initially impressed by the quality of the grain and it’s ingredients. I am even more impressed by the results I have seen in my horses hair coats, feet and temperaments. I have one thoroughbred who is “hot” and difficult to keep weight on. He has maintained a good weight and mind since I began using Equine PrideTM. I have found the feed to be cost-effective as I am saving money on reduced hay bills and no longer need to feed vitamin and mineral supplements.My horses all look and feel great. I have no reservations about recommending this feed to sporthorse owners and especially to thoroughbred owners with “high maintenance” horses.

I have an 8yr old horse named Hemi.  My first year performing at rodeos,  I won a lot of money team roping and also in breakaway.  I also qualified for the Wrangler NHSRA.  My Dad rides and trains a lot of rope horses.  The only feed we feed is Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed.  Our horses don’t get hot or silly and they still compete and win. Thank you to my Dad, J-2 and Equine Pride™ for my successful year.  Real Cowboys use Equine Pride™ Horse Feed.

David Capps – Non Pro Rider and Owner of Peptotime

Peptotime

Peptotime started on Equine Pride™ in the summer of 2004 while we were in Idaho, and has continued on it since.  I saw an improvement in body tone and hair coat in about three weeks.  He feels good, looks good, and is easier to prepare to show since switching to Equine Pride™.We have had people come by to look at our horses and were really impressed with the way our colts and yearlings look. Their appearance and hair coats look terrific.

Preston Skaar

I have been feeding Equine Pride™ for 3 years. It is very simple to feed, and it’s simplicity makes it easy to take with me to shows. Equine Pride™ makes it easy to keep weight on horses that are in training. I believe that Equine Pride™ plays a huge part in keeping my horse’s energy level up during long shows, especially when he may get worked/shown several times in one day. I highly recommend this feed.

Bobby Jean Jones – Barrel Racing

Bobby Jean Jones

I have been feeding the Equine Pride™  Complete Feed since May 2004.  I have noticed a significant improvement in the performance and the looks of my horse, Mighty.  Mighty, a 14-year-old barrel horse, is an extremely finicky eater, this is the first feed I have found that he will eat on a consistent basis. The results have been astounding. He looks better than ever, and I can tell he feels good.  Because of the feed, Mighty has reached his peak performance in the first three months of competition. I won over $6,000 at the WPRA Pro rodeos (Women’s Professional Rodeo Association.)  I am very excited about being on my way to my first Columbia River Circuit Finals Rodeo.  As you can see, I am having a phenomenal rookie year in the WPRA, and I give a lot of the credit to Equine Pride™.  I cannot stress enough how important it is to feed and condition your horse properly.  Equine Pride™  Complete Horse Feed is the most important first step to success!

Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed, it’s complete, no extra supplements to feed, no extra grain to measure out.  It is simple, easy and to use an old saying, ‘the proof is in the pudding’ in this case the ‘pellet’.  I think the best feeling is when your fellow horsemen ask what you’re doing to make you horses look so good.  Before Equine Pride™ I’d have to haul a stack of hay, bags of grain, and several different supplements.  Now 6 bags of Equine Pride™ and a couple bales of hay will last 6 horses for a 4 day show.  Even a Basquo Horse trainer can figure that one out.  No waste, easy to haul, easy to feed and it’s affordable to feed, what more can you ask for?

Bill Kepler – Race Horse Owner and Breeder

Bill Kepler

As a long time race horse breeder and owner I would like to express my findings on your Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed.  This feed is an excellent balanced feed, great alternative for hay and pasture.  The feed is ideal for the performance horse; you have taken all the work out of maintaining performance horses.  I have used your product for 18 months and have not had one sick or horse.  My mares and foals are in exceptional condition and look better than they ever have.  I have no problems weaning my foals at four months; they have had the feed with their mothers since birth and continue with no interruptions, they do not miss their mothers.  They stay on the feed and never loose weight or become stressed.  I feed Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed to all of my horses and love it.

Equine Pride™ Performance Horse Feed is so easy to feed because it is a complete feed.  I enjoy the benefit of being able to feed it to every horse I own, from mares and foals to my rope horses that I ride daily.  My rope horse is calmer than ever.  Because he isn’t wasting his energy spooking all the time, he has more energy and stamina when I rope off of him.  I can say he is working better for me, because he isn’t costing me time in the box like he used to.  I am always getting compliments on how slick and shiny his hair is year around.  I have noticed in shoeing him, that his feet are much stronger and healthier and grow a lot faster than before feeding Equine Pride™.  I recently hauled to Oklahoma City for the USTRC National Finals.  My horse wasn’t knocked out from the 24 hours of hauling.  I was able to rope off of him the same day that we arrived and he was 100%.

Lazy E Ranch, Mackay, Idaho

Lazy E Ranch

The cows and calves are fed Equine Pride™ minerals which reduce health problems and help increase conception rates to 94% in a high desert in Central Idaho. The calves are then weaned on the Equine Pride™ Cattle Feed at about 550 pounds. The pellets reduce weaning stress and calves start extremely well in preparation for shipment to the Magic Valley Feedlot.

I thought I would give an update on our recent success at the national shows and our 29th Annual sale (2009).   It is a phenomenal record that might never be duplicated!  At the Nugget Show in Reno we exhibited both the Grand Champion Bull and Female in the Horned Show. We also had Grand Champion Polled bull and Reserve Grand Polled Female.  At the National Western in Denver we exhibited both the Grand Champion Bull and Reserve Grand Bull as well as the Grand Champion Female.  We then went to Ft. Worth and again had Grand Champion Bull and Female.  Colyer Herefords was also the Premier Breeder at all three shows!  We were able to follow that up with a great sale in February.  We average $3102 on 210 head of bulls and females and had cattle sell into 16 states.  I want to thank you for all you help with the nutritional portion of our program.  Your feed has helped us properly develop our cattle.  It keeps them sound and still grow and gain to be able to compete on the national level. As you know, our bulls need to be able to perform and breed cows in a variety of harsh environments.  That is our top priority.  To get the most out of top genetics you need to have the proper feed for their development.
