    I love their stuff. I'd certainly look into it if you're already feeding things for all those purposes, or feel you need to add them. Sometimes these all-in-one products look $$ on the outside, but once you break down what you're paying to feed all/mostly what's in there, they are sometimes cheaper. Or, if only a bit more, it becomes well worth it to not have to dip into 8 different supplement containers LOL

    I love Horsetech! I feed one of their custom products which is Glazen 3 + Hylasport CTS. Wonderful products, wonderful company. They are often cheaper for the amount of stuff they put in there products like JB said. I did a lot of research before I picked my supplements. Horstech uses the optimum amount of ingredients per serving and was better priced for it, compared to any other company I looked at. Plus you get free shipping and cookies... Lol

    Thanks JB & ShowJumper. The horse in question, who's in moderately high work (jumper/eq), currently gets a Smartpak with:

    KER Equishure
    loose salt
    SmartOmega3
    vitamin E & selenium.

    He also gets a protein supp (Purina Amplify). The barn he is in (he's leased) does not feed good hay The grain he is on is Triple Crown Senior (8 qts/day).

    Sooooo.... it seems switching him away from the SmartPak and replacing with the HorseTech SportWerks would still supply the omega 3's, E & Selenium, gut help (though I'm not sure it stacks up to KER's Equishure which is hind-end friendly). I'd still like him to get loose salt and the extra protein. Plus, the barn likes to feed SmartPaks and I'd worry they'd sometimes "forget" to give him stuff from a separate bucket.

    I still love the idea of the SportWerks for him though. What to do, what to do...

    I put mine into small glad containers. That way I can keep track of how many they feed and it is easy for them to do so. Just pop the top and dump into the feed...

    Enable enable enable.... Lol

    Our barn uses Tupperware tubs for AM and PM. I make them myself once a week and put them in his designated supplement drawer. (Old smartpak drawers)

    smartpak offers most of the Horsetech stuff in smartpaks- I'd be surprised if they didn't add this new supplement to their lineup in the near future. You can always pester them about it.
