Optimal Nutrition for the Performance Horse

Show season is right around the corner and there are so many factors that go into building the champion equine athlete. From the very beginning there is one factor that we are completely in control of as owners – Nutrition.


At Energy Equine Veterinary Services our two favourite products for the performance horse are Core Balance Training Formula & Core Motion.

Core Balance Training Formula was built around the nutritional needs of the performance horse. In just two scoops a day your horse receives the scientifically chosen amounts of vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, joint and hoof health, immune support and digestive system protection – all in ONE BUCKET. No more guessing games.

Core Balance is available in either Grass or Alfalfa Blend Formulas so that each horse can have the proper calcium:phosphorus ratio in their diet. This is KEY – an imbalance in this sensitive ratio can impair growth and increase skeletal malformations and muscle disorders.

For us, the final step that completely sets the Training Formula miles apart from it’s competition is that it targets lactic acid build up and emphasizes recovery. Branch Chain Amino Acids (BC2A) require three essential amino acids, DL-Methionine, L-Threonine and L-Lysine, to be at high enough levels to target lactic acid buildup. The body cannot create enough essential amino acids on it’s own, they must be supplied through feed and supplements. They MUST be fed in the right amounts to target lactic acid. BC2A are the most effective way to slow or stop degradation of the muscle through supplementation.


Finally, our equine athletes often need more joint support to take them to that next level. In the joint, hyaluronic acid is responsible for directly lubricating the joint through production of synovial fluid. Synovial fluid increases joint mobility, protects joints and cartilage and subdues joint inflammation through the body. Hyaluronic acid in oral form, when absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract, is more bio available and thus can be absorbed by all the joints in the body.

Core Motion contains 200mg of high quality, liquid hyaluronic acid so that your performance horse can push harder, feel better and recover faster this show season.
