Known as the “core” muscle group, a horse's topline refers to the collection of muscles along the back, neck and hindquarters that are responsible for how a horse moves, jumps and pivots. Proper diet and conditioning are fundamental in supporting the health of this vitally important set of muscles.
High-quality forage paired with a comprehensive daily supplement, like one of the Platinum Performance® Wellness Formulas, deliver the essential nutrients, including amino acids, needed to support the health of the topline.
High-performance equine athletes or horses with a weak topline may need extra support for muscle health and recovery.
This potent formula helps maintain muscle strength, supports endurance and promotes post-exercise recovery, from temporary soreness and fatigue, by providing amino acids (the building blocks of protein) and powerful antioxidants required for normal muscle recovery. Platinum Renew® supports horses' recovery after exercise and should be given within one hour after exertion. Also available as Renew Paste, convenient for pre- and post-performance and 2 times as potent as Renew powder.
Designed with the equine athlete in mind, Myo-Vet® supports muscle development and function. This potent formula supports lean muscle mass and helps to maintain minimal post-exercise muscle breakdown, which may be helpful in supporting athletic performance, recovery, and improved muscle strength.
