“I have to tell you about the results of having my horse, Dillon, on Outlast prior to and during my horse show in Winona last weekend .. INCREDIBLY AMAZING! I had a totally different horse at that show and I firmly believe it was due to Outlast!
Normally I experience a lot of resistance and displeasure from him and he is a very difficult partner at my shows. I spend a lot of time trying to make him happy and keep him content, because, after all, the point is for us to be a team and work together, but I normally leave feeling that those moments were too few and far between for all the struggling I had to do with him.
I also normally experience an unreal amount of teeth grinding. We see this at home sometimes, both in his stall and while in the arena, but I really experience it at shows. In fact, at one show this past summer, one of the judges came over and checked my bit and another one walked up to me in the lineup and suggested I have him checked for ulcers and gave me some ideas on wrapping his bit with latex. (We tried that, but it hasn’t worked.) His breeder said it was hereditary because his mother always did that, but I always saw a definite connection between him grinding his teeth and him having to do something that he didn’t believe he should have to do.
But this past weekend, I saw an enormous change in his attitude and in his performance. Even though there were still the moments where I knew he would rather be standing in his stall eating his hay instead of going out and riding in the arena, he didn’t have the same negative behavior about it that he had before and I wasn’t fighting him all the time like I did before. I was so pleased!! We actually had a good time and had many new successes!
I also did not experience the teeth grinding like I have in the past! There were two times that I can think of where he ground his teeth once, but he never continued and it was only in his stall, never under saddle. I do have to admit that we changed bits on him, and this was the first show that I rode him in it (in fact Friday was the first day that we tried it), but we have tried new things like this on him before and they’ve not been successful because of his resistance, but in this case I truly believe that the Outlast helped us accomplish success with the new bit .. he was so much more receptive to the change because he was on Outlast.
Understanding the extreme physical discomfort a horse can experience due to anxiety in a situation made a lot of sense to me and I saw it as a real possibility for my situation, so the basis on which this product is founded sounded right up the alley for Dillon. I was very hopeful for a positive result, and I was not disappointed!
So the bottom line is that I am a true believer in this product! For me and my horse, this product has proven itself to work as intended. I am extremely happy with the results I am seeing by having my horse on Outlast!!
Thank you for the chance to give this a try!”
