Gastric Hindgut Support / Digestive Conditioning:
Due to the pre-biotic properties of our unique Yarrowia lipolytica yeast - stimulating growth of the favourable intestinal microflora, Equinox provides excellent gastric / hindgut support & conditioning. For the best result with gastric health, we encourage a high forage, low concentrate, molasses free and grain free diet to be followed. Please email or FB message to discuss diet.
Muscle Build-up / Strength & Development
The excellent source of 16 amino acids in Equinox Original and Equinox Sport - enable horses to build up strong muscular tissue, improving the muscle strength and tone - thus assisting with ongoing training, performance and improving their athleticism. Equally important for horses in competition, training, young horses, veteran horses and those who may have been off work and need to rebuild muscular strength.
Due to the natural properties of our yeast and niacin content, Yarrowia Equinox supports the immune system of the horse, especially important during autumn and winter, frequent travels, competing at various venues etc.
Holistic results including hair, skin and hoof horn
Equinox has an excellent effect on quality of hoof horn and hair coat. These effects are visible in strengthened structures of the hoof and reduced cracking of its walls AND a strong and shiny coat. Horses that received Yarrowia Equinox formula, as a part of their daily diet - had much more flexible soles and anterior walls of their hoofs, and improved mechanical properties of hair - no damage in foretop samples. B group vitamin content, particularly vitamins B2 and B5, support hair, skin and hoof horn growth. Also the content of amino acids that contain organic sulphur is important, as only this form of sulphur is used by horses. Methionine and cystine participate in keratin production, influence hardness of hoof horn and maintenance of smooth and shiny hair.
Excellent overall body condition is obtained and well maintained by Equinox Original. The muscular tone and coat shine achieved is especially beneficial to horses showing and competing at all levels.
Most horses exhibit a calmer less anxious/less-stressed/more focussed outlook, once they are regularly fed Equinox Original.
Equinox Original supports stamina and reduces the post-competition rest period required after strenuous exercise.

Yarrowia Lipolytica yeast - upon which all our supplements are based - contain oligosaccharides (mannanes, beta-glucans) which are NOT susceptible to animal digestive enzymes, so are able to survive the passage to equine intestines. The yeast becomes a medium for normal/beneficial bacterial flora, leading to restricted growth of negative bacteria present in intestinal flora. Favourable bacteria, including lactic bacteria proliferate rapidly and negative organisms decrease.
Yarrowia lipolytica yeast cellular walls have a stable and extensive structure, and contain mycotoxin-binding properties.
There is no Saccharomyces cerevisiae in any Equinox supplements.
Yarrowia lipolytica yeast strain, uses fat as a source of carbon and energy, hence guaranteeing a higher content of valuable, bio-available nutrients. The special process of yeast biomass multiplication on the fatty substrate, under biotechnological regime, guarantees the highest product quality. This is an innovation in the market of horse supplementation and Equinox supplements are the ONLY supplements in the UK to contain this unique yeast strain produced by patented technology.
Yarrowia lipolytica yeast - grown on fats, are a perfect source of protein with optimum amino acid composition, B group vitamins, vital micro- and macro-elements, in easily absorbable- organic form and contain active substances, including selenomethionine, selenocysteine, alfa-ketoglutaran, cytrulline malate, kynurenic acid.
Yarrowia lipolytica yeast is extremely efficient at delivering nutrients into the horses body, therefore the horse benefits not only from the nutrients contained in ours supplements, but also is better able to utilise nutrients in hay, grass and other bucket feed.
Our UNIQUE YARROWIA YEAST - must NOT be confused with Brewer's yeast - which is made from a one-celled fungus called Saccharomyces cerevisiae and is a by-product of brewing beer.
The Manufacturer declares that the product does not contain doping substances, Class A drugs or Class B drugs mentioned in the list of prohibited substances issued by FEI. The prepared product may be used throughout pre-competition period and during and after competitions. Suitable for horses competing under Rules.-
