Read testimonials from real horse men and women and see how SUCCEED once-a-day, every day is helping them get their horses at their best.
I first started using SUCCEED after my horse had experienced repeated episodes of GI tract issues. It was important to give him every assistance to help break any cycle and restore stability. The horse wasn’t well and seemed to be feeling a bit fragile. My vet suggested for him to go on SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program, which we hoped would provide additional support. I was already aware of the products and SUCCEED’s reputation from previous web searches and having read positive reviews. I was completely open-minded and not expecting to see overnight results. I started him on SUCCEED oral paste, and within 24 hours I was very surprised and pleased at how much more comfortable my horse appeared to be. He continued to improve and looks and feels so much better. I really feel that SUCCEED will help to keep his gut healthy and prevent risk of future GI tract issues.
We were introduced to SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program by our vet regarding a very high strung filly, who hated every aspect of training from start to finish. After a full month of SUCCEED, her coat was gleaming and she was back in love with the game, placing twice in 2 Irish maidens. The important of getting the inside right to get the outside to perform cannot be emphasized enough.
My husband is an equine performance medicine veterinarian. He is a big believer in SUCCEED, and I have been using it for quite some time now! I first used it on a horse that had stomach issues; I saw a huge difference and became a believer! The horses love it and I now use it on nearly all my horses when headed to a show and when at a show. I don’t even have to force them to take it; most of the time I have to fight to get the tube back from them!
SUCCEED can also be given to dogs and badgers — it keeps their fur shiny! All our dogs fight for the used tubes; there is always a little left over that they receive! Conor, my badger, well he gets his own tube daily because he is just special, and I like to keep him happy and healthy! Succeed is a great product that is effective and affordable!
SUCCEED has had a positive impact on my horses in every way possible. From anxiety, to energy levels, to cleaning up grain at every feeding, it has been very effective. After tireless searches for a product that would help my good horse, Streak of Pleasure, (also known as “Wonder”) I was introduced to SUCCEED by Dr. Crosby and it was a turning point in Wonder’s career. I started using SUCCEED three years ago and have never looked back.
Wonder had faced some health challenges and, following those, he was lethargic during even the shortest hauls. He also was not looking his physical best; being sick had taken its toll on him. After starting him on SUCCEED, he began cleaning up his grain at feedings and had a brightness in his eye, proving to me he felt better than he had in a long time. One of the greatest benefits I have seen is that our horses always eat and drink after getting off the trailer no matter how long they have been hauled. Wonder is healthier and, in turn, is able to love running barrels again and have the endurance to stay competitive.
“We use SUCCEED on a day-to-day basis as a foundation in the feeding and training regime for all the horses at Gornall. We find good gut health is essential in maintaining the horses’ optimum health as it enables maximum nutrients to be absorbed from the feed that they are given.
Using SUCCEED has helped transform our horses into a picture of health and aided their performance, as they feel more comfortable in the gut and absorb more nutrients which helps to build condition. It has helped keep the horses in regular digestive patterns, with less bloating, and minimized any issues that they had previously had with girthing.”
International Show Jumper
Our mare has previously experienced GI tract issues when she was at work. She has had some time off due to having a foal and was due to return to ridden work again. We spoke to our vet who recommended trying SUCCEED to provide additional support. She was previously very irritable and bad-tempered when handled and ridden. Now she has a much calmer demeanor and is happy to be touched around her stomach area. She no longer seems to struggle with GI issues, plus her coat is much shinier and she has a better condition. Coming back to work, she is so much less reactive than before, which has made her much easier to train. We will continue to use SUCCEED Digestive Conditioning Program to support her as her work continues.
Katie and Allison Tasker
We went away for 6 weeks to compete and came back to one of our young stallions very skinny. He had dropped all of his weight, lost all of his muscle and no doubt had stomach issues. I tried for 3 months just to get weight on him with feed, but had no luck. I had always wanted to try SUCCEED and now was definitely the time. It didn’t take long to start seeing a difference. He has since won champion newcomer, supreme ridden welsh and best welsh exhibit of show at our 2021 Western Australia All Welsh Show. This couldn’t have been possible without the help of SUCCEED to get his condition and health right. Thank you for this amazing product that we will be using for many of our horses.
SUCCEED has been an instrumental part of my program for the last six years, not just for my pro rodeo horses, but colts as well. I believe it is never too early to start taking care of your horses’ gastric care as soon as they are born. Even before they are born you can start giving their digestive system the best chance at being as healthy as possible by taking care of the broodmare. In order to have a strong, healthy baby, the mare must be well taken care of also. It is vital for colts to receive the correct nutrients from a very young age so they can grow big and strong. I believe SUCCEED helps my colts to get the most out of their diets.
In the barrel racing industry, these horses are bred to run. They are racehorses, so they are naturally going to be a little more high-strung animals. Trying to combat this from a young age and not waiting until it is a problem is vital. If we can help reduce anxiety by taking care of their gastric health from the time they are born, it will make it easier to manage throughout their lives and careers. SUCCEED will continue to be a part of my program and is going to be even more instrumental as I begin running more futurity horses. I want to make sure those young horses are healthy and happy from the start and have the best chance for success.
For the last six years, I have trusted SUCCEED for my older horses that I am hauling to professional rodeos. After discovering the product thanks to fellow SUCCEED endorsee, Ron Ralls, I have never looked back because the results speak for themselves. After starting my initial horse, Dashing Jolene, on it, she no longer had a hard time maintaining a healthy weight after just a short two months on the product. Her haircoat looked tremendously shinier and healthier and she began to dapple out after starting SUCCEED. I knew she was getting healthier internally to look that good externally.
The entire lifestyle of barrel racing is really tough on our horses. We ask them for their lives every time we send them down the alley. After asking 110% every run, we are likely to load them back on the trailer and drive all night to the next one and expect them to be relaxed and easy-going when we get there. Their lives are very high stress, which puts a lot of strain on their gastric system.
There is a variety of ailments that can come with this kind of pressure-filled schedule, so it is critical to maintaining the integrity and health of their GI tract so they have long-lasting careers. With SUCCEED, I know that my horses are getting exactly what they need to be healthy from the inside out. For my older horses that are on the pro rodeo trail, I specifically use SUCCEED to keep the acidity down and neutralize their stomach, make sure they are getting all the vitamins and minerals that they need, and also make sure they are absorbing the nutrients from their alfalfa that they get. I would recommend SUCCEED for any horseman’s program. No matter the discipline, gastric care is vital to the longevity of horses.
