The Guide to Supplements and Horse Care provides horse owners with a new way to learn
about their horse’s health and supplements. “We’ve compiled our 10+ years of supplement expertise into one easy-to-read resource that we think will be a favorite go-to for horse owners,” said SmartPak founder and president, Becky Minard. "We've included customer success stories and provided horse owners with direct access to SmartPak’s experts. And the best part is that it’s free!" Beyond the expert help it provides, the Guide to Supplements and Horse Care has also made comparison shopping for supplements easier by offering resources like, Healthy Joints at Any Stage, At Risk for Ulcers? – a quick quiz to find out your horse’s risk, What to Look For in a Hoof Supplement, and even a Q&A on Daily Dewormers with SmartPak staff veterinarian Dr. Lydia Gray, DVM, MA. The Guide also includes over 17 success stories from horse owners, like Laura Nunnally and her Thoroughbred mare Fancy. Fancy is a 14-year-old Thoroughbred mare who came to live with Laura after years of campaigning as an A circuit jumper; a role that caused her to develop discomfort in her hocks and stifles. Laura put Fancy on a daily SmartPak program of B-L Pellets and SmartFlex III Ultra. Recently the duo went to a local county show to see how a couple of cross rails classes would go, and they won both! Already known for helping horse owners make the right decisions for their horses through their free Supplement Consultation service, SmartPak’s educational Guide to Supplements and Horse Care is just one more way that SmartPak is poised to be a partner in your horse’s health and well being. Interested barns, pony clubs, 4-H clubs and any other equine groups who think their members could benefit from the Guide are urged to contact SmartPak directly for their free copies. "We’re thrilled to be offering this wonderful resource to the equine community,” said SmartPak CEO Paal Gisholt. “We hope barns and horse owners across the country enjoy reading the Guide cover to cover and use it as a handy reference whenever they have questions about their horse’s health.” Feedback from early readers of the Guide has been very positive. Some of the comments include; “Loved this guide! Hope you make it a regular thing.” “The Guide to Supplements and Horse Care is the most wonderful mailer you have produced thus far. I am a voracious reader of articles, books, etc., on horses and their care, and this latest publication is ranked high on my list. There is never enough info out there for horse owners. To be sure, this publication has found its spot on my "horse info" book shelf.” “I just received your Spring Guide and was surprised at the wonderful magazine format. The customer stories peaked my interest and gave it a nice personal touch. Really terrific job!” “I just read your Supplements Guide from front to back. OUTSTANDING.” “The Supplement Guide is FANTASTIC! I loved reading every single article but especially the one about ulcers! My neighbor has a huge Percheron with terrible feet so I showed him the article about hoof health. I need you to send him one because he most certainly cannot have my copy! I love it too much!” “I love your supplement guide and I want to thank you for the support that you have offered to my horses. I don’t know what I would do without you!” SmartPak is committed to helping horse owners improve the care and enjoyment of their horses by providing them with simple, innovative solutions and exceptional service.
