Weekend Wrap-up from Kentucky Performance Products

As the seasons change, so do the quality and content of your horse’s feeding program. Winterizing your horse with KPP supplements can help him cope with the stress.

From the Kentucky Performance Products Tips & Topics Blog:

Extreme weather patterns increase the risk of ulcers and digestive upset.

  • Abrupt management changes caused by extreme weather patterns stress the digestive tract and the microorganisms that live in it.
  • Increasing levels of starchy grains fed to meet additional energy demands lead to hindgut imbalances.
  • Reduced grazing causes the accumulation of excess gastric acid, increasing the risk of ulcers.

Choose Neigh-Lox® Advanced to fight seasonal digestive disorders

  • Buffers excess gastric acid and coats sensitive tissues, reducing the risk of stomach ulcers
  • Maintains a normal GI tract environment, which reduces or eliminates episodes of colic or diarrhea
  • Supports complete digestion of starch and sugars in the foregut, thereby reducing the risk of hindgut upset and acidosis
  • Supports healing of stomach and colonic ulceration by supplying nutrients to the gastrointestinal tissues
  • Sustains the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria throughout the GI tract


Supplemental natural vitamin E protects against seasonal deficiencies that may lead to:

  • Stiff, sore muscles in performance, recreational and older horses
  • Lower immunity levels in developing fetuses
  • Equine motor neuron disease in horses of all ages

Choose Elevate natural vitamin E to support optimal antioxidant status

  • Provides affordable, highly digestible, natural vitamin E, which is essential for horses with limited access to fresh pasture
  • Maintains healthy levels of antioxidants that support reduced cell damage from oxidative stress
  • Supports healthy muscle and nerve cell function
  • Sustains a strong immune system to keep horses healthier during stressful times


Protect against unwanted seasonal weight loss with Equi-Jewel® rice bran

Rice bran is packed full of safe calories for horses facing the energy drain that extreme weather can cause. When horses lose weight, it affects more than how they look.

Weight loss leads to:

  • Reduced fitness and performance levels in athletic horses
  • Poor condition in broodmares and stallions at the start of breeding season
  • Unhealthy weight loss in senior horses

Choose all-natural Equi-Jewel to add calories to any ration

  • Balanced Ca:P ratio protects against mineral imbalances.
  • Fat and fiber support a calm and focused attitude.
  • High-fat, low-starch calories reduce the risk of colic from grain overload.


Make sure your horse is properly prepared for the winter season with Kentucky Performance Products supplements. Best of all, trying a KPP supplement is risk free. If you are not 100% satisfied, we will reimburse your money.
