The ultimate competition supplement for competition horses. Designed for older horses, injury prone animals and those competing nationally and internationally.
1. Optimising your horse's soft tissue function
The chances are you've never really thought about this and your current feed regime doesn't address it properly! We use a combination of both old and novel ingredients.
* Delivering critical nutrients right to where they are needed is a WinningEdge speciality
* Getting metabolic waste products out of cells and disposing of them is another
* Your horse's muscles have different requirements for normal work and for high workload situations. You need a supplements system designed properly for this.
For your horse this means:
* Improved stamina
* Less residual tension in muscles, ligaments and tendons which reduces skeletal distortion, improves performance and aids recovery. This is an important aspect of joint supplementation not normally addressed
* Reduced injury risk.
2 & 3. Building bones & muscles
Modern, energy focused diets are surprisingly poor at supplying the nutrients that enable horses to build stronger bones and larger muscles quickly - vital with new arrivals in the yard or for horses recovering from box rest or sustained turnout.
* Maximises your horse's natural ability to use protein and build new muscle tissue
* Provides the crucial building blocks for developing strong, injury resistant bones
* Facilitates the naturally rapid cell replication required for any tissue development (WE Gold only).
4. Improving your horse's concentration and relaxation
Your horse may not be spooky, nervous or silly but it is probably distracted by other horses, the audience, jump builders or the dressage white boards. WinningEdge contains EquiFeast's unique 'food for the brain' that has enormous benefits even for 'sensible' horses.
* More relaxed means better softness and flexibility with benefits for both dressage and jumping
* Improved concentration means more effective schooling and big performance improvements
* Your horse will go up the levels further and faster
5. Energy management
The biochemistry required to convert sugars, carbohydrates and fats into movement is complex and controlled by a large number of vitamins, proteins and amino acids. Many of these nutrients are quickly flushed from the body so regular replenishment (and top-ups for hard work sessions) are essential. Many are expensive, so are often limited in feeds and supplements. WinningEdge is formulated without compromise:
6. Maintaining healthy joints
Don't wait until joint problems are apparent - the damage is done by then! Combined with our support for tendons, muscles and ligaments WinningEdge provides:
7. Naturally rapid tissue repair
Joints are not the only tissues that get damaged during competition and training. All sorts of soft tissues are vulnerable. Rapid repair needs lots of protein and cell replication capacity. WinningEdge contains:
* Ingredients to help with protein utilisation
* Nutrients to aid naturally rapid cell replication (Gold only)
8. Strong, healthy hooves
There is no excuse for poor hooves. WinningEdge is comprehensive and includes the nutrients required for quality hoof horn production. It is both effective and economical (no need for extra supplements)
9. Supporting the immune system
Competition horses are exposed to regular stress and lots of other (possibly infectious) horses. Stress and hard work depress immune function so WinningEdge contains a whole host of nutrients and herbal nutricines designed to support the immune system.
White blood cells are the immune system's 'Rapid Reaction Force'. WinningEdge Gold contains our unique 'White Cell Support System' supporting a naturally efficient response.
10. Digestive system support
Prolonged exercise and stress play havoc with the chemical balance of the gut. Diets high in cereals, sugars and fats make it worse. Feeding the beneficial gut flora enables them to out-compete disease causing bugs. WinningEdge contains:
* prebiotic herbs to help the good bugs
* concentrates of 'good bug food'
These nutrients help maintain efficient digestion and absorption of food. We believe this is a superior approach compared to the addition of artificial live yeast and bacterial cultures to the diets. Natural horse diets (pasture, hay, haylage) contain loads of these naturally occurring microbes - they need supporting not replacing.
Young Irish Sport Horse Hedonist showed natural soothing of skin issues when supplemented with WinningEdge Gold. Subsequent trials on a number of different horses with similar issues have all returned positive results.
12. Gut structure
Special nutrients in WinningEdge Gold have been demonstrated to maximise the length of the villi in the gut.
* Optimised gut surface area
* Optimised digestive function and absorption
* Demonstrated performance benefits in race horses
