Standard Process Equine Performance - Train Harder, Recover Faster
Equine Performance Support by Standard Process has been used by hundreds of thousands of athlete and show teams. This supplement powers the elimination of inflammation from your horses body. It speeds up recovery from work and exercise. By removing the inflammatory messengers, muscles and tendons can heal faster and remain at optimal performance during training, showing and competing.
About Equine Performance
Equine Performance is a supplement for horses that may help in training, traveling, or competition by providing important energy & immune response substrates.*
Horses that train rigorously, travel, or compete may experience an inflammatory response, exercise-related muscle soreness, and oxidative stress. Diet, level and amount of exercise, age, and the nature of a training program are all factors that may play a role in maintaining a balance between oxidative stress and antioxidant status in the performance horse.1 Oxidative stress may be the result of decreased antioxidant activity, increased amounts of reactive oxygen species, or both.2 Horses in training may experience a physiological challenge and as a result will attempt to regain homeostasis through coordination of multiple organ systems.3 Dietary antioxidants may help the horse cope with rigorous athletic demands.4
Equine Performance is a unique blend of whole foods and other ingredients that may help horses in training, traveling, or competition by:
- Providing important energy and immune response substrates*
- Supporting energy pathways
- Offering antioxidant support
- Providing ingredients that may support recovery from strenuous activity*
Indications for Use
- Horses preparing for, participating in, or recovering from competition
- Horses preparing for, participating in, or recovering from travel
- Horses in demanding or rigorous training programs

- Start slowly by mixing a small amount of powder into the feed.
- Add the powder to the feed and dampen with water. (Spray bottles can be helpful.) Shake the container to mix the powder with the feed. This will also prevent the powder from settling in the bottom of the feeding container.
- Mix with unsweetened applesauce and add to the horse’s feed or syringe directly into the horse’s mouth.
- Add to a mash made of commonly found low-starch pelleted feeds or soaked hay cubes.
