Success with Platinum Performance® Equine

Krista and Clyde

“Clyde is a rescue. He is Clydesdale/ Thoroughbred cross and has 21 allergies. Clyde has been on a special diet and allergy shots for 3 years! His vet told me he has gained over 600 pounds! Clyde is an extremely difficult keeper. He has always been on your products since I rescued him! These products have been essential to his weight gain and allergy support! I use Heathy Weight Oil and Platinum Skin & Allergy and Platinum Support Vitamins and Minerals! Thank you for helping with my special Boy ♥”

Michelle S. and Echo

“I got Echo about a year ago and she ‘needed groceries’. She had a severe gas colic ... and I thought it was goodbye. After the gas colic resolved, my vet immediately suggested we add Platinum Performance for her overall health. Moving her to a place with good pasture, and the addition of Platinum has brought out the horse she was meant to be.”

Lori and Yogi

“I adopted Yogi from his owner who was no longer able to ride him due to his severe insect sensitivity. Because of his extreme symptoms, Yogi could not be turned out and was uncomfortable being outside for any length of time. While he was still amenable to being ridden, his obvious discomfort and constant shaking and twitching made riding impossible. His skin was hypersensitive, his coat dry, sticky and flaky, his hooves weak and brittle and his manner dull. He had strange repetitive behaviors that made him seem quite odd. When left on his own in a field he was frantic, so he was basically a shut in for over four years.

When I took over his care, I did some research as decided to take Yogi off all the drugs he was on to control his behavior and change his feed from 10lbs a day of a soy bean meal and wheat middlings based pelleted feed to an organic whole oat feed. He was considered a hard keeper and so was given the maximum amount of the soy based feed. Once we switched, he started improving immediately, if slowly and could be fed less.

After discussing options with a horse nutritionist, I contacted Platinum Performance and spoke to a dietary vet about Yogi's history and issues. He has been on Platinum Performance ever since. He is now down to 4lbs of food a day and thriving. He is an outside horse and loves to graze. Only really big horse flies bother him now - which he tells me is completely normal. His coat is soft and shiny, and he only needs shoes on his front feet. The best change is his crazy goofy self that emerged. He's one of the barn favorites with his silly faces and playful personality. We also found out he's an OTTB formerly known as Gripit and Ripit!

We don't compete though his movement has improved and is beautiful.”

Samantha & NTEC Quooper

NTEC Quooper was imported by Kai Handt of North Texas Equestrian Centre in December 2016. His owners in Germany had tried to train him as driving horse, but Quooper had other ideas and apparently smashed up a carriage. Kai saw him on a trip back to Germany and thought he would be perfect for me as a dressage horse due to his breeding (by Quaterback out of Samba Hit mare), his forgiving temperament and his super athletic conformation and gaits.

So after a generous trial period of a couple of months, I bought Quooper in April this year as a 5- year-old. Because he had not been ridden much, he had no steering, didn't really understand leg aids, and had poor muscle development.

I brought him home, and started him on Platinum Performance twice a day, along with a pelleted feed, ad-lib hay, and at least 12 hours a day turned out in a 6-acre field. Schooling and conditioning work started, 5 days a week for just 20 minutes a day initially, and increasing as he got fitter and developed more muscle.

In May 2017, Quooper did his first ever dressage show at training level. His steering at the time was still a bit like turning a submarine, and so it was going to be an achievement just to keep him within the boards. Well he exceeded all my expectations and won all 6 class over 3 days, with scores in the 70's!

After another show at Training Level, I decided to try him at First Level. Well my golden boy won his 2 First Level tests on scores of 77% and 78%! He was now qualified for the United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Regional Championships at Training and First Level.

To gain more experience before the Championships, I entered him into another show, where again he excelled himself, winning 3 classes and coming second in another, all on scores between 73-76%.

The Great American Insurance Group/United States Dressage Federation Region 9 Dressage Championships were held in early October this year, only 10 short months after Quooper began his transitioning from driving horse to dressage horse. I didn't really know how he would cope with the big show atmosphere, the bleachers with people looking down on him, the loud speakers, the flags and the hundred other things that can scare a young horse.

I needn't have worried. On the first day of the Championship classes, my golden boy rose to the occasion, and I felt from him “it’s OK, I have got this.” In the best ride we have ever done, he strutted into the ring and produced a faultless and classy test, which earned us the GAIG USDF Region 9 First Level Adult Amateur Champion title! We also won the GAIG USDF Region 9 Training Level Adult Amateur Champion title, the Southwest Dressage Training Championships and were Reserve Champion in the Southwest Dressage First Level Championships.

After a well-deserved week off in the field, he is now back in work, training towards Second Level and flying changes.

Being part of developing this untrained horse into the muscled, shiny, high-achieving athlete he is today has been the most amazing experience. Of course this development is multifaceted, and I believe that providing the right nutrition to help him build muscle and weight whilst remaining sensible and level-headed is vital. Platinum Performance has been an important part of this. I also feed Platinum Performance to my two hard working fox hunting horses, who need high-quality nutrition to enable their energy requirements, and our old retiree horse, who has never looked better.

Billy S. and Oliver

“I recently competed in the Fort Collins Extreme Mustang Makeover, where I was a top ten finalist on my horse, Oliver. These pictures show an extreme transformation from week one to the end of the 90 days when I showed him. Out of 40 horses, he received the highest score in body conditioning! After speaking with many of the other competitors, I realized I was the only one in the competition that had their horse on Platinum Performance. I believe in your product 100% after it turned this little guy into a show horse!”

Myra S. and Mouse

“This is “Mouse” aka Mahara's Red. She is a BLM Mustang and the reserve champion at the Jacksonville Extreme Mustang Makeover 2016. She was gathered in Wyoming in January and selected for the EMM. She was drawn and trained by Stan Smith for their event. She is a testament to Platinum Performance products and proper nutrition. Her transformation is astounding. Look at the gorgeous coat. Your products are amazing. I am the lucky owner of this beautiful girl now.”

Tracie G. and Smokey

“Smokey was extremely underweight and getting hoof abscesses every 8 months in all four feet no matter what I tried. My vet recommended Platinum Performance and Platinum Hoof Support. After 90 days, he looks amazing! He gained over 200 pounds and his coat is glossy and darker! His hooves are growing, pliable and have moisture.”

Rita S. and Jesse

“This is my dream horse Jesse. He came to me from Kentucky and was 100 pounds underweight and not very well kept. I immediately dewormed him, had his teeth floated, put him on a good hay and, of course, Platinum Performance. He began to itch, so I put him on the Platinum Skin and Allergy formula and Platinum Hoof supplement. I had the vet run an allergy test and found out he was allergic to all hay except orchard grass. I have had so many compliments on the new and improved horse after just 90 days. If I had a dollar for every compliment I received on him, I would be able to buy a year’s supply of Platinum Performance! It’s a wonderful product. I have had our quarter horse gelding on it for many years. He is 17 and doing great. My dog and cat are also on Platinum Performance. Everyone does so well on your products. I’m scratching my head as to why my husband and I are not using your product! LOL. I guess we’re next! I took the challenge because I knew what it could do for this beautiful horse. What an amazing difference!”

Stacie W. and StickUp

“I purchased my gelding, Frosted Charm aka "StickUp" in October of 2016. He was stringy looking, had a dull haircoat, and his skin was covered in fungus. I brought him home and put him on Platinum Performance and in just one month the change was remarkable. He gained significant weight and muscle tone, his haircoat had shine and much better color, and his skin was healthy! Platinum Performance has made such a dramatic difference in our feeding program and the health of our horses!”

“Our horse just turned 5 and is a 17.3 hand Thoroughbred sired from Dynaformer. Our trainer said she felt like Platinum Performance CJ would be very good for him. We wanted to put some weight on him, support his joints and improve his coat.”

Laura M. and Cash

“I had planned on putting whatever horse I purchased on Platinum Performance seeing as my current mare has been on Platinum CJ for years and even the vet forgets her real age (18 going on 12)! Since starting on Platinum, Cash has blossomed into an even more amazing horse. After one month, he’s become a better looking horse and seems to be more bright eyed and happy. Thanks again for what you all do there at Platinum!”

Helene B. and Gina

“When I brought Gina home as a rehab project, I knew in my heart there was an amazing horse under the ribs and sunburnt, brittle coat. She’s an 18-year-old German Hanoverian who wasn’t thriving, had developed a laundry list of health and digestive issues and desperately needed some good groceries on board with an aggressive supplement plan. From her first meal, I started her on Bio-Sponge for her diarrhea, Platinum CJ and Gastric Support. I can’t thank you enough.”

Elizabeth N. and Raven

“We rescued a mare who was 300 pounds underweight and had such bad teeth she had ulcers on her cheeks and tongue. My vet floated her teeth and suggested I start her on Platinum Performance. I had used it with my other horses with good results, so I ordered a bucket for Raven. She is now in training and hopefully one day we will be in the show ring.”

“Dolce Vita joined our family in 2012. Even though our understanding was that she has some driving experience, we started from scratch and brought her along slowly. As soon as she came to the farm, we put her on Platinum Performance supplements. I recently looked at her first Coggins picture and was astounded to see the difference in the before and current photo!”

Kate H. and Malibu

“Malibu (Fairlea Silver Pep) was in a generally malnourished condition and had been injected in his stifles and hocks twice within 60 days before we took control of him. He had a body condition score of 2. Our immediate concerns were about overall weight issues, muscle tone, joint health, bone & tendon health, gastric health and skin & coat health. We started to use Platinum products even before our veterinarian had seen Malibu as recommended by Les Oswald, who took over his training and health management starting in September of 2011. Malibu is a prime example of the remarkable results gained in overall conditioning and health necessary to put him back in training and high level performance competition. Malibu just competed in his first event since his recovery and is doing very, very well.”

You can see a 100% difference in horses appearance and performance on Platinum CJ. It is a necessity for high competition levels. Will not compete without it.
— A. K., Bluffdale, TX

I've recommended platinum products to many people because of the success I've had with my mare. My horse is healthy and competitive by just eating high quality hay and platinum wellness and I've eliminated grain from her diet. I've also been very impressed with platinum’s customer service and have called for advice even on a Saturday.
— P. R., Portland, OR

My horse moves better and behave as though he feels better! He's 21 and everyone guesses he's 12-14.

Quality ingredients, without fillers, at guaranteed amounts. I am a vet tech & work for an equine vet. He only recommends Platinum for our clients' horses.

I like the customer service and the ease with which I can adjust my shipments. But the most important factor for me is that your products are clinically tested and I know what's in them.
