Product Overview

The effectiveness of the key ingredients in our formulas; Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Vitamins and Omega 3 & 6 has been proven through practical use by veterinarians, and also in many scientific studies published. All the essential nutrients in PalaMOUNTAINS-Equine Bone & Joint are protected by the unique formulation and deliver up to 99.5% absorption rates, whereas pills & powders can only offer 10-20% (the Physician desk reference pg 1542).

Fequently Asked Questions

Why feed supplements?
For a horse to race to its ability, it needs a specialised diet that is balanced and is adequate in quantity and quality to maintain the horse in top form. Along with a balanced diet, a good dietary supplement is required in order for the horse to avoid disease and ensure good health. Although a good balanced diet will provide a solid foundation, food alone cannot supply all of the nutrients necessary to fulfill their unique requirements. Racing horses have different nutritional requirements and factors such as age, activity level, environment and genetics which will greatly affect the absorption of nutrients from foods. It is therefore important to provide the horse with extra nutrients which will assist the body to successfully work, grow and perform to a high level.

Liquid supplements vs Powder supplements?
Solid vitamins are manufactured in pill or powder form and have been proven to deliver only 10-20% absorption rates while liquid supplements have up to 98% absorption rates so therefore offer more nutritional efficiency and value for money. Acknowledging the improved efficiency of liquid vitamins over solids it is also important that liquids also offer less waste and provide a far superior alternative.

What is Extreme?
Extreme is a 'world first' liquid multivitamin and mineral supplement scientifically for endurance horse i.e. racing, eventing, endurance and rodeo mounts. The unique patent-protected formulation has been developed by internationally renown scientists form Massey University and offers extraordinary absorption rates of 99.5%. Extreme contains both fat & water soluble vitamins & minerals suspended in an enriched Omega 3 & 6 base. It also contains flavourings of yeast & garlic for high palatability and great enjoyment. plus the added benefit of Creatine for more power and strength.

What are the benefits of feeding Extreme?
Extreme offers your horse a unique combination of essential nutrients which will help health & vitality, performance & recovery, improve skin, coat & hoof condition, assist with food utilisation and healthier stomach conditions. If fed as per instructions of a 21 day BOOST and then MAINTENANCE, results can be seen within 10-15 days. Your horse will feel much healthier & happier and perform better through taking Extreme.

What is the difference between Extreme & Show Off?
Both products assist equine athletes with energy production, work recovery, improved quality of skin, coat & hoof condition and eating habits. Extreme has been scientifically formulated for the endurance horse and contains Creatine which helps aid with increased muscle contraction and offers more power and strength for high intensity work outs. While Show Off has been formulated for the hunter/jumper to dressage, miniatures and breeding/sales and doesn't contain the added benefit of Creatine.

My horse is a fussy eater. Will it like the product?
Both Extreme & Show Off contain flavourings of garlic & yeast for high palatability. For very fussy eaters it is recommended to wipe a small amount of product around the mouth to encourage the horse to lick off. Alternatively many horse trainers find it convenient to drench their horses.

 “One of the most noteworthy benefits that I attribute to Equine Bone & Joint is the very few number of OCD and cartilage issues we now experience in our yearlings when it comes to pre-sale x-rays of yearlings which is an important factor in the presentation and profi tability of our horses we market at our sales.

I believe Equine Bone & Joint to be an essential part of our operation on a daily basis, and there are no doubts that horses such as Faltaat, Captain Rio, Postponed, II Quello Veloce, Crafty Irna, Rio Fortune, etc have benefi ted greatly from having access to the product. I could not recommend palaMOUNTAINS Equine Bone & Joint any higher, and would urge those looking to achieve the best results from their thoroughbred business to give consideration to the product.”

I find Palamountain’s Equine Bone and Joint a critical ingredient of our daily feeding program and one we would not be without!


“I have used Palamountain’s Equine Bone and Joint product for four years now and the results have been very pleasing indeed. From the perspective of a commercial breeder, it has become imperative to be able to offer yearlings with clean x-rays at sale time, and by using Equine Bone and Joint I have no doubt that we have improved the x-ray status of our yearlings during this time and we are consistently producing a better quality of athlete for the market place.

The broad selection of vitamins, minerals and trace elements which Equine Bone and Joint is based upon provides breeders with one product which meets all of the nutritional requirements when looking to maximize growth and maturity of the young thoroughbred - without compromising the long term health of the horse.

I find Palamountain’s Equine Bone and Joint a critical ingredient of our daily feeding program and one we would not be without!”

 

 


 

Hazel Youngman & Printz
North Canterbury

"I started feeding palaMOUNTAINS-Equine Bone & Joint to my horse 14yo Printz early in September. Unfortunately two days after he started the dose he was entangled in a fence and was unrideable for just over two weeks. He wasn’t at peak fitness from sporadic riding over winter due to working full-time and had only just been coming back into work prior to the fence mishap.
Last week I was able to recommence riding and I fully expected the usual lack of energy and fowardness that I get when Printz has had a bit of time out. I was surprised to find that there were no set-backs. He went forward off the leg at the slightest aid, took a lovely soft contact and worked ‘through’ a lot quicker than I have ever experienced. He has continued to remain this way and is so soft over the back that I am FINALLY able to sit to his trot - something that this amateur rider has never achieved before!
I had my first lesson last weekend after a 2 month period without any and my trainer said Printz seemed much more free, especially behind the saddle and down through his back end. He certainly has a spring in his step at the moment but when he gets a bit ‘above himself’ he is much easier to re-focus, which is another avenue I have had trouble with in the past.
I am very impressed with this product and it is going to remain in his everyday diet. I have tried various joint supplements over the two years I have owned Printz and none of them compare for value and absolute visual proof that palaMOUNTAINS-Equine Bone & Joint really does work!"
