    Thank you for your email. I really appreciate your rational words. I will start with supplements I would recommend for your horse. We have several that are formulated to add energy. To start we have Cavalor An Energy Boost which is a liquid paste that can be given on an as needed basis directly in the mouth or on the horses feed. This product works as quickly as 15 minutes and will stay in the horses systems for up to 1 hour. If you are looking for a longer acting energy source we have Cavalor Kick Up. This product takes affect after 12 hours and stays in the system for up to 24 hours. We recommend giving Kick Up the PM and AM before the event, 50 cc per day. Use 50cc every 2nd day if needed. For more of a daily supplement we have Cavalor Powered. This product starts taking affect after 3 days and best results seen after 30 days. This product increases red blood cell count and acts as a vitamin and mineral boost. Both Kick Up and Powered are liquid supplements that again can be put directly into the mouth of a picky eater or added to feed as a top dressing. On the grain side we have several options as well. For the quickest energy increase we have Superforce that can be added to your current grain (20% Superforce 80% current grain) two days before an event and then feed throughout the event 80% Superforce 20% current grain. For easier keepers we recommend Endurix feed to add energy and for harder keepers we recommend Perfomix to add energy. Please let me know with if any of these interest you and I'm happy to give more details on ingredients and or any other needed info. Thank you m.mccabe@cavalor.com 615.566.3382

    A feed store here tried to sell me on it, says he can't keep it in stock but at $37/bag the cost just seems outrageous.

    I am somewhat intrigued by the pianissimo for my difficult mares but have never seen a 'calming' agent actually work excpet for placebo effect.

    does Cavalor feed contain soy ingredients such as soybean hulls or soybean oil?

    Even though I loved Cavalor, (as posted here already), I had to switch back to Seminole a few months ago. Apparently there were issues with the Cavalor rep for our area and our feed store finally gave up trying to keep it in stock. It was really frustrating to go and buy my feed, only to find it out of stock. The store would say they had no idea when it was coming and if I called the rep personally, she would say it would be delivered within days...and it wasn't. Several times I found myself making emergency trips to Ocala to get the feed. After my mare died, who was on the senior and it was the only feed she really loved, I decided to make the switch back. I would have kept going to Ocala for her, but my gelding is just as happy on Seminole. It is too bad, as I really liked the results of the feed.

    My thoroughbred mare is on Cavalor now, mixing the sport horse for muscle help & senior for weight gain. I have tried around 8 different feeds ranging from triple crown, tucker milling & other well known feeds that didn't help my horse much. Over this past winter she lost 150 lbs & after moving barns to one that uses Cavalor only 3 months ago she has already gained all that weight back, muscle tone & looks better than she ever has. It may be expensive but is totally worth it & our barn owner even has said that even though the price tag is $30+ she actually saves money because of being able to feed less than other brands but have better results (especially with hard keepers like mine).

    I actually question how these performance feeds get tested. There have to be trials to get to these perfect formulas, whether the feed is intended for seniors or sport horses.

    What horses are these feeds tested on, what happens to them? Tissue samples, blood samples etc are needed to prove these claims and perfect the formulas in the first place.

    It's a racket like with dog feed (Eukeneuba). Too many $$ involved and all those sponsorships, ads, giveaways makes me squeamish. What price do the experimental horses pay for their lucky relatives to be fed the best?
    Steady on!

    Ok, after reading other comments on here after making my own I notice a lot of you have not tried Cavalor feed with your own horses. That being said I suggest not bashing a product that you yourself have not had any experience with or truly looking into it. The original poster was asking questions that should be answered by people that have used it or at least have more knowledge of any brand in question.

    Why do some people have to be so nasty?

    If you don't want to feed Cavalor or have no interest in learning more, why not go read another thread? There is no reason to attack a representative who seems to be genuinely trying to answer questions.

    This is an old thread.

    Just one more thing to save some people the headache and expense of jumping on the latest feed fashion bandwagon: In eventing's glory days (IMHO) when the x-country included road, tracks and steeplechase to test a horse (and rider's) fitness and stamina as well as superb ability, these $30 bags of "high performance" super feeds didn't exist. We're breaking no records in racing either, many of the old ones still stand.

    Now I go to Rolex and see horses tiring on a much shorter course.
    Steady on!

    but how much of that is a change in the type of horses used? Or the courses altered to suit the WB crosses better?

    No matter what kind of feed you give a WB, I don't think they are going to have the same speed and stamina on average of a good TB.

    This. It's very expensive, and in the GA/AL area, not widely carried. I think the Seminole Wellness Compete feed is very comparable and isn't overpriced. Switched my TB to the Seminole and the vet said at his last visit "He looks so amazing, I almost didn't recognize him".

    Right, but some of the tiring horses are TBs.
