"I used to have my horse on $800 supplements. Since starting Digestive EQ, I now have my horse on no gut medication whatsoever, so they’re saving me an absolute fortune! More importantly, she is super happy and super relaxed. I couldn’t be happier!"Jade Findlay — Elite Australian Eventer
IS DIGESTIVE EQ RIGHT FOR MY HORSE?
DIGESTIVE ENHANCER & PH STABILISER
DUAL ACTION MYCOTOXIN BINDER
THREONINE & GLUTAMINE
ADDED ENZYMES & ANTIOXIDANTS
Is your horse suffering from lack-lustre hoof or coat condition, excitable behaviour, restrictive movement, sour attitude, girthiness, or recurrent colic and laminitis?
These might be due to an unhealthy gut (both fore and hind). Digestive EQ is designed to support the digestive and immune systems of your horse. It's unique formulation is designed to assist with foregut and hindgut digestion, inflammation and immune challenges. It also contains a mycotoxin eliminator to negate mycotoxins and help get your horse’s gut healthy again.
HOW TO USE DIGESTIVE EQ
Here are some quick tips to help you introduce Digestive EQ with your horse.
Feeding rates can be found on the label on your bucket or tub;
Do not exceed the recommended feeding rates;
Introduce Digestive EQ slowly;
For fussy eaters, you may need to reduce the dose and slowly increase;
Always put the lid tightly back on.
If you have any concerns or questions please contact us immediately.
DAILY DOSEfeed daily
STRESS DOSEfeed as required up to 2 weeks maximum at a time
UP TO 200 KG
200 TO 400 KG
400 TO 600 KG
600 TO 800 KG
One level scoop (supplied) is equivalent to 65 grams. For best results, divide and feed the daily dose into two or more equal meals per day (can also be fed in one meal). Digestive EQ should be fed as part of a balanced diet with ample forage. Introduce Digestive EQ into the diet slowly over a period of 14 days. Adjust the amount fed so it is appropriate for the horse’s body weight.
"We acquired Clyde an 8 year old Clydesdale Cross in November 2018.
He was grossly overweight and had not had any hoof care. After having his feet trimmed he developed very serious laminitis coupled with two huge foot/coronet band abscesses. In December he was in so much pain and the condition was so serious we did not think we could save him.
The challenge that we faced when designing his diet, was encouraging him to eat when he was in so much pain, but at the same time assisting him to lose weight and manage then long term healing process of the laminae and hoof.
In developing his diet, we included Digestive EQ after seeing some many wonderful testimonials as we knew all of his health issues would require good gut health. The results speak for themselves and we are so glad that we put him on Digestive EQ as it has without a doubt assisted in saving our horse’s life."
"Within 4 weeks of starting Digestive EQ, Illarak Donntrell was a much happier horse and presented with a much improved work ethic, an improved topline, an extremely glossy coat, an improved attitude in his stable and general handling.
Our feed bill decreased and feeding regime simplified. We are a small family run stable and love showing our horses. We aim to produce and breed horses of the highest calibre and now run all of our equines on Digestive EQ with great effect."

"Just wanted to show you results of the Digestive EQ on my two ponies. Previously on this horse you could not use any shine/coat products as his skin was so sensitive and he just reacted and was itchy and suffered from hives. Now I don’t need to use anything as his coat is amazing. Due to the stress of travelling and a new home, he had suffered from ulcers, so I used gastric ulcer treatment. The only product that worked was Digestive EQ. I cannot recommend your product highly enough. First photo July 2nd photo 2 weeks ago at HOY."
"Fibonacci is an imported Warmblood that had years of treatment for an ongoing, problematic skin complaint. Within two months of using Digestive EQ, the condition has drastically improved."
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why should I use Digestive EQ?
Our horse’s digestive health plays a pivotal role in their overall health, wellbeing and performance, so it only makes sense that we need to keep this as healthy as possible. During times of stress or perhaps not managing our horse’ diets as well as we could be, we open the door for our horses to develop issues such as weight loss, behavioural problems, performance issues, laminitis, gastric ulcers and tying up. Digestive EQ aims to support optimal digestion by assisting to maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract and eliminate common causes of upsets, particularly in the hindgut.
What is in Digestive EQ?
There are five active ingredients in Digestive EQ.
Marine source of highly bioavailable calcium and magnesium which acts as an immediate pH buffer for the stomach and also provides nutrients which may assist with improving bone density and reducing excitability in horses.
Added enzymes to aid the digestion of starch from grain based feeds in the small intestine, reducing the likelihood of undigested starch entering the hindgut.
Amino acids which aid in the protection and strengthening of the gut mucosa.
The powerful prebiotic feeds the fibre ingesting bacteria in the hindgut potentially increasing feed conversion from fibre sources within the diet and optimal production of B-vitamins and vitamin K.
Lastly, the dual action mycotoxin binder, whose role is to bind, deactivate and eliminate damaging mycotoxins, which can be found on grains and pasture
What makes Digestive EQ different from other supplements?
There are so many supplements on the market. One of the reasons Digestive EQ was formulated was due to our frustration that many similar products on the market had only one or two modes of action or contained molasses, grain by-products or other sugars not suitable for some horses and other products which you simply didn’t know what was in them.
To support the digestive system, both the fore and hindgut, previously required using multiple supplements which was ultimately expensive and time consuming.
We searched the world for what we believe to be the best products available and with consultation with a Professor of Equine Science and a Doctor of Equine Nutrition, and assistance with other animal and microbiologist specialists we put these products together saving the horse owner time and money. We believe there are no products currently on the market as complete or as premium as Digestive EQ. Unlike many other supplements, Digestive EQ is manufactured at an APVMA registered and approved site. We also use FIAAA approved ingredients, guaranteeing you a consistently high-quality product.
My horse has been on long term ulcer medication but I’m not seeing much improvement. Will Digestive EQ help?
Most ulcer medications prescribed by veterinarians aim to restrict hydrochloric acid production (known as proton pump inhibitors) in the stomach. A reduction of hydrochloric acid secretion allows the stomach environment to somewhat neutralise and allow ulcers to heal. These medications only target ulcers within the stomach therefore if you are not seeing any improvement in your horse’s symptoms which may include girthiness, loose manure, poor performance, dull coat, weight loss and colic, your horse may also have further issues in their hindgut which remain unresolved.
Digestive EQ aims to support all levels of digestive health from the foregut to the hindgut. Remember to always seek veterinary advice when concerned about your horse’s heath.
How soon will I see a result from using Digestive EQ?
Horse owners who are trying Digestive EQ are reporting seeing improved behavioural changes in as early as 4-5 days, with horses appearing calmer and more settled.
Another noticeable improvement can come in the way of improved consistency of manure. Some horses that have been scouring for months have reportedly formed solid manure within days of using Digestive EQ.
In as little as two weeks, horse owners are reporting noticeable changes in coat condition and beginning to see improved top line condition, particularly noticing filling out above the flanks around the loin area.
After 3-4 weeks people are consistently noticing significant behavioural, performance and recovery improvements, as well as improved feed conversion and a noted improved suppleness under saddle.
As your horse starts to get a better feed conversion, you may notice them putting on weight. You can then start to reduce the amount of feed you are giving them, which can lead to considerable savings in feed bills.
If you don’t see a result that quickly, don’t panic. Every horse is different with some taking longer to respond due to ongoing repair of mucosa and repopulation of healthy microbes, particularly in their hindgut. If your horse doesn’t have obvious outward symptoms of gastrointestinal upset, positive changes are going to be less obvious but can as subtle as improved hoof growth and increased immunity.
But remember, seeing the results is just the start. Supporting optimal digestion and the health of your horse’s gastrointestinal tract longer term with the correct diet in combination with Digestive EQ will ensure optimal health and performance into the future.
How does Digestive EQ work?
Each active ingredient in Digestive EQ has a specific role to play (see What is in Digestive EQ?). Collectively they aim to restore digestive health and support digestion.
Digestive EQ may act as an immediate pH buffer within the stomach. The addition of Digestive EQ to a small (500g) high fibre meal eg. chaff, beet-pulp etc. prior to exercise can assist gastric ulcers by minimising gastric acid damage to the unprotected portion of the stomach. For horses on high grain diets, it can also buffer the acidic pH due to bacterial fermentation of starch within the stomach.
Digestive EQ may also assist in improving the capacity of the small intestine to enzymatically digest fat, starch, and protein, preventing them from entering the hindgut undigested and negatively impacting the fibre fermenting bacteria. In particular, undigested starch which enters the hindgut undergoing rapid fermentation and the production of lactic acid. If in significant qualities, this can cause the pH to become acidic (aka hindgut acidosis) causing the fibre fermenting bacteria to die. This has several consequences, including decreased fibre fermentation therefore less energy and vitamin production. Secondly, the mucosa lining can become inflamed and damaged making it more permeable for endotoxins to enter the bloodstream causing systemic issues.
The prebiotic used in Digestive EQ feeds the fibre fermenting bacterial in the hindgut. This may result in effectively digesting fibre and converting it into energy (volatile fatty acids), B Vitamins such as B1 (appetite and calmness) biotin (hoof growth), B12 and Vitamin K.
Additionally, damaging mycotoxins (invisible moulds) which can be present on feed stuffs may be eliminated through the use of a dual action mycotoxin binder. Dual action means it combines the ability to bind mycotoxins with the ability to also break them down and deactivate them. Simplistically, the majority of toxin binders have one mode of action, targeting what we call polar molecules including aflatoxins which can be found on grains and cereal hay. For horses on forage-based diet ie. grazing pasture, this type of toxin binder is not effective in binding the mycotoxins of concern (non-polar molecules) which can be present on grasses and legumes. It is also important to note that there is no evidence to suggest that Digestive EQ toxin binder, binds vitamins and minerals.
Lastly, Digestive EQ supplies amino acids which act to maintain, protect and repair the integrity of the gut mucosa. The gut appears to have a large requirement for particular amino acids, and these may not be supplied adequately by the diet or the body may not be producing enough or due to increased demand (during periods of illness) cannot cover the requirements.
What evidence do you have that Digestive EQ is effective?
As part of our research and design phase of Digestive EQ’s development, we undertook a trial with numerous horses across various disciplines. The results were overwhelming with consistent reporting of improved condition, topline, behaviour, manure consistency, performance, appearance and the ability to cope with stress.
We also undertook a field study with a further cohort of randomly selected horses with Professor Andrew Dart (BVsc PHD,Dip ACVS, Dip ECVS) in an attempt to measure observable outcomes.
Every single horse in the study showed a remarkable increase in feed conversion with some horses increasing their weekly weight gain by up to 9 times.
“It is difficult to dismiss the relationship between weight gain and the addition of this supplement” commented Prof Dart.
There was also improvement in manure consistency, coat and body condition.
All horses found Digestive EQ palatable.
Additionally, the hundreds of testimonials speak for themselves.
What should I feed my horse if I’m feeding Digestive EQ?
The majority of horses will maintain weight and perform best on a forage-based diet, including those with high energy requirements. Horses have evolved to graze constantly on fibrous feedstuff and how the gastrointestinal tract is designed and functions reflects this.
The bulk of your horse’s diet should be forage, including pasture or hay. As a rule, your horse requires a minimum of 1.5% of their body weight in forage per day to maintain normal gut function. Due to the nature of pasture and hay, both long stem fibre sources, horses are required to chew these for longer compared with alternate forage sources like chaff, hay cubes etc which are comprised of short stem fibre. Increased chewing encourages more saliva production, naturally buffering the stomach and its contents. Increased time spent chewing long stem fibre forage sources also maintains a steady flow of feed into the stomach for a longer period. These long stem fibres also contain what is known as effective fibre, which is fibre that remains undigested as it passes through the gut. Effective fibre is important for allowing the horse to produce manure and shift unwanted material like sand out of the hindgut.
Forage, which is comprised mostly of fibre, provides a major source of energy for your horse. While your horse itself cannot digest the fibre, the billions of bacteria in its hindgut do the job for it. During fermentation of fibre, volatile fatty acids (VFA’s) are produced which are absorbed by the horse and utilised by the body to form energy. As well as providing the horse with energy, important vitamins like B1, biotin and vitamin K are produced during bacterial fermentation of fibre in the hindgut.
If you’re providing adequate high quality forage and your horse and desired body condition is not achieved, you can increase your horses energy intake further with various ingredients.
High energy fibres Including soybean hulls, copra meal and sugarbeet pulp. These feedstuffs are similar to pasture and hay, however the fibre they contain is more readily digested by the bacteria in the hindgut meaning they contain a similar amount of calories as cereal grains. These feeds are particularly well suited to horses that become excitable and hyperactive when fed grain based feeds.
Cereal grains and grain based feeds Cereal grains are well known as being high energy feeds and are useful in the diet of horses that have increased energy demands such as horses in heavy exercise, broodmares in late pregnancy or early lactation and some growing horses.
However, some grains and grain based feeds are more suitable than others. When selecting grains to feed it is critical that the starch within the grain (which is the high energy component) is digested in the small intestine. Grains that are digested in the small intestine will provide your horse with more calories and ensure your horse avoids problems with hindgut acidosis. To ensure the starch is digested in the small intestine, select grains or grain based feeds that have been cooked/micronized/extruded.
Cereal grains should not be used in the diets of horses with Cushing’s disease or those susceptible to laminitis.
High fat feeds and oils Are the highest energy feedstuffs you can give a horse. Fats and oils hold two major advantages over high energy fibrous feeds and cereal grains. The first is they are energy dense meaning you don’t have to add large quantities to the diet.
The second advantage of high fat feeds and oils is they don’t tend to make a horse as hyperactive as the same quantity of energy supplied in the form of cereal grains. In addition, they do not carry the risks of digestive upsets that accompany cereal grains.
Lastly, make sure your horse’s diet is balanced from a protein, vitamin and mineral perspective. We recommend using FeedXL Horse Nutrition Software or seeking independent nutritional advice to help balance your horse’s diet. Additionally, always read the labels of any feed or supplement you are using, so you know it is suitable for your horse and tells you exactly what you are putting in your horse’s mouth
Why haven’t you used a probiotic?
Digestive EQ has a powerful prebiotic included. We have not included a probiotic as the research is not conclusive about the efficacy of probiotics in horses. Despite widespread availability and use, scientific, peer-reviewed evidence behind commercial probiotic formulations in horses appears limited.
When should I use a veterinarian approved gastric ulcer treatment?
If you suspect your horse has gastric ulcers, call your veterinarian. They should be able to properly diagnose stomach ulcers via a gastroscope and determine if your horse requires treatment with a prescription medication. Once your horse has been successfully treated for ulcers, Digestive EQ can be used (alone or in conjunction with treatment) to assist with maintaining a healthy pH in your horse’s stomach and supply nutrients to support repair of the mucosa. Many of our customers are reporting that they have successfully weaned their horses off long term use of gastric ulcer treatments, saving them considerable money and more importantly that their horses are performing better.
What is the difference between Digestive EQ and a gastric ulcer treatment?
Effective gastric ulcer medications work through inhibition of hydrochloric acid from proton pumps in the glandular region of the stomach. Digestive EQ works instead to buffer the pH of the stomach, promoting an optimal stomach environment. While inhibition of hydrochloric acid release through medication aids in the quick healing of gastric ulcers, longer term maintenance doses may impact digestion of some nutrients. The mostly acidic environment caused by secretion of hydrochloric acid is essential for digestion of feed including activating the enzymes that break down protein and fat, separate minerals from their complexes allowing absorption in the small intestine and help protect against many microorganisms in feed.
It is important to remember, that this is only one of many functions Digestive EQ has.
What is the feed rate and how long will a 4kg tub last?
A horse weighing up to 200 kg has a daily dose of 45 gm per day which equates to 89 doses;
200-400kg has a daily dose of 95 gm per day (42 doses);
400-600kg has a daily dose of 130 gm per day (31 doses);
Horses over 600 kg have a daily dose of 195 gm per day (20.5 doses)
What other sizes does Digestive EQ come in?
We also stock a 15 kg bucket, which is 10% cheaper than our 4kg tub on a per kg basis. This is priced at $350-360 pending postage and freight charges.
What is the stress dose for and how much do I use?
Research has shown that events such as travelling, competition, worming and other such events can impact your horse’s gut bacteria in a negative way. You have the option of giving your horse a stress dose of Digestive EQ to help buffer the impact of such events. Many of our clients have reported the benefit of doing just that and have now decided to use the stress dose as part of their competition preparation.
The label tells you the recommended stress dose for your horse.
What does Digestive EQ look like and how do I feed it?
Digestive EQ is a powdered feed supplement that is added to your horses normal feed. It is a green powder. You can mix it with any oils or add your wet feeds such as beet fibre or mix through your feed and wet down.
Where can I buy Digestive EQ?
We have trained distributors throughout Australia that can not only supply the product but can also assist you with your questions. They have all been trained in horse gut health and are a great resource for you. Additionally, we have it available in select retails stores. To find your closet distributor or retail store head to our "Locate Our Products" page
Does the Toxin Binder bind any other nutritional or health products?
Mycotoxins in animal feed are a serious issue worldwide, causing widespread losses in animal production.
Mycotoxins cause innumerable negative effects in all animals including horses, ranging from serious liver damage to reproductive issues and behavioural changes. Mycotoxins are insidious, in that if you get more than one mycotoxin in feed, which is common, they tend to have a cumulative negative effect as one mycotoxin magnifies the effect of another. This allows them to cause issues even when each mycotoxin is present only at low levels.
For decades now feed manufacturers in the pig, poultry and ruminant industries have been adding toxin binders to feeds to essentially trap or cut up these mycotoxins and stop them from affecting animals. And to date it is still a very effective strategy at reducing the negative effects of mycotoxins on animal health.
Quality toxin binders have a specific mode of action and while they are very effective at binding the mycotoxins they are designed to work on, they won’t randomly bind nutrients like vitamins and minerals nor will they deactivate medications. With vitamin and mineral nutrition having very real and measurable effects on animal production in intensive animal industries, the manufacturers of toxin binders have long been concerned with ensuring their products don’t bind nutrients.
The toxin binder in Digestive EQ is a proprietary formulation that has been designed to bind and then deactivate harmful toxins. This active that we have chosen has research that shows us this work had been done and we are satisfied that our product won’t be having a negative effect on a horse’s vitamin and mineral nutrition nor compromise any worming activities.
What else do I need to know?
Digestive EQ was initiated by a passionate, dedicated horse owner who was frustrated with the amount of money and time she was spending on feed supplements that weren’t working to the level she wanted. A consulting team consisting of a Professor of Equine Science, an Equine Nutritionist who completed her PhD on starch digestion in the horse, an Animal Scientist and a Microbioligist helped make her dream to create Australia’s most complete and affordable gut supplement come true. Poseidon Equine is committed to helping horses become the healthiest they can be, allowing them to perform at their optimal level.
Can both Digestive VM & Digestive EQ be included in my horse’s diet?
Digestive VM has been formulated to compliment the use of Digestive EQ, or be used on its own if your horse doesn’t require Digestive EQ. The combination of the two products aim to promote overall health by supporting gut health and providing essential minerals and vitamins required by your horse.
If I feed Digestive EQ & Digestive VM is that too much calcium in the diet? What happens if I exceed daily calcium requirements?
This greatly depends on your horse’s requirements and what the rest of your horse’s diet consists of including forage type, complete feed (if any) and other supplements used.
Calcium is a pretty safe mineral if fed in excess of your horse’s requirement however it is recommended that you seek nutritional advice from an independent nutritionist or use FeedXL Horse Nutrition Software to access your horse’s diet.
How Should I Introduce Digestive EQ Into My Horse’s Diet?
It is best practice to introduce all new feeds and supplements into a horse’s diet over a period of 14 days. This is particularly important for horses prone to digestive disturbances like colic and diarrhoea. With Digestive EQ, start at ¼ of your horse’s Maintenance Dose and build it up gradually, over 2 weeks, to the full Maintenance or Stress Dose.
Can The Full Digestive EQ Dose Be Fed In One Meal?
Yes, but… It is best to feed Digestive EQ in two feeds per day. Doing this gives your horse longer periods of buffering in the stomach and may allow for better absorption and utilisation of the nutrients it contains. BUT, we get that sometimes feeding twice per day is not possible. If this is the situation you are in, you can feed the full Maintenance Dose in one meal per day. If using the Stress Dose, it should be divided and fed in two meals.
Is Digestive EQ Safe For Laminitic Horses?
Digestive EQ can safely be used in horses with laminitis and does not contain any ingredients that may cause laminitis. Just, as with all things with laminitics, introduce EQ slowly, as a ‘just to be on the safe side’ measure. They can be unpredictable, so slow is always best when adding something new to their diet.Laminitis is caused by carbohydrate overload (undigested starch and fructans entering the hindgut) can be triggered by a shift in hindgut pH which then destroys good bacteria. These then release damaging endotoxins which enter the bloodstream and can trigger laminitis. Digestive EQ aims to reduce the likelihood of this happening with improved digestion of starch in the small intestine and promotion of a strong population of good bacteria that minimises the impact of shift is pH within the hindgut.
BUT here is our ‘but’…
Laminitic horses are sensitive to (almost) EVERYTHING. It is like once the cascade of inflammation associated with laminitis starts their entire system goes on red alert for anything else that may add insult!
So, what we would recommend is this… if your horse is actively laminitic and you aren't currently using Digestive EQ, get that under control first. Get them off whatever it is causing the problem (pasture, hay or feed you are using) and onto a safe hay. Then once everything settles and they are sound at at least the walk, THEN you can start to slowly introduce Digestive EQ into the system.
For any horse with active laminitis or prone to laminitis, strict dietary management is essential. Always seek veterinary advice if you’re unsure of the best management.
Does Digestive EQ Help Gastric Ulcers?
Digestive EQ is not designed to treat existing gastric ulcers and we direct owners to consult with their veterinarian about treatment with a registered gastric ulcer medication if their horse has confirmed ulcers. The veterinarian should be able to properly diagnose stomach ulcers via a gastroscope and determine if your horse requires treatment with a prescription medication. Once your horse has been successfully treated for ulcers, Digestive EQ can be used (alone or in conjunction with the treatment) to help to reduce insult of gastric fluid on a healing or recently healed gut. It also provides the nutrients the gut itself needs to repair the gut wall and the nutrients to produce mucous so it can protect itself naturally. The prebiotic is designed to improve gut health by supporting the fibre fermenting populations of bacteria, while the enzymes are there to improve digestion of starch and sugars in the small intestine to stop them flowing into the hindgut where it will upset hindgut bacterial populations. Digestive EQ is designed specifically to help the gut keep itself healthy. Of course, you can’t just throw caution to the wind and feed a diet that will predispose a horse to hindgut issues or gastric ulcers, but, Digestive EQ will support normal gut health, which is something we know is sorely lacking in many horses, despite the best intentions of their owners. Interestingly, the registered gastric ulcer medications simply cut the acid production in the stomach, to create an environment that allows the ulcers to heal. They generally do not have any role in actually healing the ulcers nor in making sure the gut is robust and healthy enough to not have an immediate relapse back to the condition they just recovered from. Many of our customers are reporting that they have successfully weaned their horses off long term use of gastric ulcer treatments, saving them considerable money and more importantly that their horses are performing better.
My Horses have been on this product for a few years now and I love the gut health it provides
My 19 year old ASH has been on Digestive EQ for almost two months now and his coat is lovely and shiny. He doesn't seem to mind the taste which means it's easy to add to his feeds and I don't have to worry about whether or not he is eating it. So far, I'm happy with the results.
Have been using Digestive EQ for about 2 years now since Blondie suffered mild bouts of colic due to ulcers. After scanning and medication to clear the ulcers she has been on Digestive EQ and hasn't suffered ulcers since.
My horse has IBD but has improved a great deal since starting Digestive EQ. Happier, not as touchy and looks heaps better.
My boy has been on digestive EQ for the past few months and has never looked better! I just ordered my next bucket as well as a bucket of VM.
I have had issues with ulcers in my competition horses and wanted something that I could add to my ever day feeds that worked for both front and hind gut without using the pastes from the vets on a regular basis, I also wanted to be able to feed this product to all my horses from broodmares, yearlings and competition horses to prevent this happening as far as I can tell it seems to be the whole package for what I need and I am sure with a bit more time I will be able to really see the results in full.
Roy has actually lost some condition through your recommended diet for him. He is slowly settling but keep in mind that we have survived the firestorm we had and I lost my 2 mares in this blaze so Roy had been a little unsettled for a few weeks. Overall pretty happy with his whole persona. I will certainly keep using this wonderful product
The improvement in my horse's overall health, weight and even general contentment has been incredible since I started using Digestive EQ about 5 months ago. It is now and forever a permanent part of my horses diet and I could not recommend it enough.
It's true this is amazing stuff.
When I got my boy he was dull in colour and very jumpy.
As I got this in his system he calmed down and now looks stunning.
You can tell he he feels good about himself.
It is too early to give a true assessment but certainly have no complaints as yet.
He was always shinny, but have seen an improvement with his manure being firmer and he appears very settled. So only week four but happy with it
My boy is 13 yrs old and just starting his ridden career, he was a paddock minder most of his life. While he looked ok he had no real muscle tone and when I took him out he became quite anxious and uptight. Started him on Poseidon Digestive EQ within 1 week he was much more relaxed in his work. He started swinging through and appeared much more comfortable. After 3 weeks my coach commented on his muscle development. Been out and about this weekend with minimal tension which only lasted a very short time. I am over the moon with your product and told everyone who would listen this weekend about how great it is.
My horses don't mind the taste but its too soon to notice any positives yet. But will do another review at a later date.
Won’t ever stop using this product. My horses are thriving.
I have only been using Digestive EQ for a few months and already had amazing results, I’ve seen first-hand with my World Cup horse Quintago 1 how well Digestive EQ works. Once I changed to Digestive EQ I saw a massive improvement in his digesting of his feed which made him a happier horse and improved his performance. I highly recommend Digestive EQ and would love to help people get the same results as I did.
Love this product and live how quick it comes in the post!
Great results- great value for money
Aspen gives it a hoof 20 (our version of a high 5)
This mare in the pic is 13 yrs and a beautifully bred Tb but had struggled to gain weight after being retired from breeding .
I have had her for 6 months and feel frustrated with her slow weight gain . Enter your product . This is week one so u will be able to give you more updates as we progress .
Hi Linda although I Purchased the Digestive EQ before Christmas I only started using it on 24thDec.2019. I have taken before photos and will take another photo after one month. My mare eats Degestive EQ with no problems at all, although I divided it up over 2 feeds initially as you suggested. I am really looking forward to seeing how she progresses. She was rescued by a friend and given to me as a companion for my mare who is away at the moment, but when she comes home I will put her on the Digestive EQ too.
Wishing you and your staff a very happy New year.
I purchased Digestive EQ on the advice of a friend who had a horse that didn’t float well. I was having some trouble with mine also. Have to say he has been much better in the float and is a happy, glossy, healthy horse! He is maintaining his weight well even though conditions are very dry. Great product.
I am a professional in the equine industry who fields questions daily about nutrition and supplements for horses. I have chosen not to recommend any products in the past since the claims made about them have never proved accurate. Digestive EQ has proven to be very different in that regard and is the product we are happy to recommend to clients who ask. My own horses have always looked great but the addition of EQ has allowed me to feed less for a better result. It is difficult to point to a particular aspect of their health but there is clearly a holistic change that is obvious in both how they look and go under saddle.
Started using Poseidon 6weeks ago on both my warm bloods one in particular is a
Inner stressed type of horse and I have noticed in the past 2 weeks he is much more relaxed
In His work making the training
More enjoyable for both of
us.both horses seem much more
TWO months on feeding Digestive EQ for these two!
To say I am happy would be an UNDER statement!!
Both are 6 years old, and Dezi, my chestnut QH, has shown signs of digestive upset, hence being recommended this product. Silk, my Quarab mare has shown ALOT of calmness in her behaviour and less 'mareyness'!!
You have us as clients for life!!
Really seeing the difference in my boys condition since he has been on digestive eq can’t wait to see what my other boy will look like when he’s back from spell
Amazing product...We have used so many products over the 55 years we have shown ponies...Since using Digestive EQ our ponies look amazing..their temperaments have improved and our feed bill has dropped dramatically.. We always have a spare tub in the feed room to ensure we never run out...
My horses are looking great and their coats are shiny.
Decided to try this product as I am in drought and am always looking to maintain my horses in lieu of hay (being hard to get at times). The change in condition and coat was almost instantaneous! The horses seemed happier and brighter. 10/10
Been using posiedon eq for about four months on two horses trained in two disciplines. Chrissy a 16year old warm blood mare since using EQ has amazing muscle definition and taken her dressage to the next level. Levi 5 year old gelding Australia Stock Horse has calmed and accepted our training program with focus and dedication. Thanks for your product in the equine world. Picture is latest of Levi.
Aspen loves her Digestive EQ!
Thanks for a great product, was recommeded it by her last owner.
31st October-9th December. This boy is 28 . This horse has an extensive history of daily colic some days worse than others. Since starting on EQ he hasn’t coliced once! His mouth is worn out, No grinding teeth so no hay . TB. He hit a brick wall weight wise. No appetite , was being hand fed by myself ( literally, I had to hand feed for 3 days) I got a bucket of Digestive EQ and the rest is history. He is now a hungry hungry hippo that eats all his hard feeds, his weight and coat have improved ten fold. He’s holding weight too. I also started all 4 horses on the VM and my Shetland finally dropped his coat and is super shiny. All 4 horses are now thriving. My grey is also on the EQ and VM and now has a shine even through the dust ! I’ll never stop using both products.
Great service. Only just started using it so can’t show results yet
This horse has settled so much since being on digestive eq. Coat is shiny hooves great and keeping his condition. Love it
The biggest difference I’ve experienced is the change in behaviour, he is much calmer and relaxed.
Along with a good diet Digestive EQ has helped fix my mares gut, shes happier, I'm feeding less and shes working so much better!!
Wish I had started it earlier!!
This horse was purchased from a drought area in N.S.W and arrived at Panton Hill Victoria with a very runny tummy and not handling normal feed well. He is now thriving with coprice, chaff and your eq powder
I have had my horse on this for only a month & have noticed a remarkable difference, his head flicking is near non existent & overall he is a calmer & happier horse .
Have purchased this product for my thoroughbred after strong recommendations from my riding instructor, he has only been on it 2 weeks, so early days, but he seems to be doing well with it.
I started my two competition horses on Digestive EQ and the results I saw were incredible. Both my horses had an improved work attitude and were happier when saddling up. As well as they have put on lots of condition and are looking the best they have ever looked!!
Absolutely love Digestive EQ . Easy to mix, very palatable and has improved my old TB unbelievably. Pics are 8 days apart! Worn out old mouth.
Romy was very underdone when I bought him a few months ago. He had been clipped and his coat was dull and scurfy. He was very reactive and hyper alert. I put him in IQ, as I wanted to rule out gut problems. With not much more than IQ, chaff, good hay and grass, he has blossomed. I have now put my old boy(27) on it. Thanks!
This stuff is amazing! in the 2nd week of starting Digestive EQ my horse became happier he started gaining weight and wasn't showing any signs of girthyness at all!
Love using Digestive EQ and will continue to use and recommend, in as early as 1 month my new horse was noticeably less girthy, had excellent body condition and shine and is happy and gut-healthy.
Love Digestive EQ. It's the only supplement I have my horses on now and they're all glowing with health! My mare needed several courses of anti biotics and other medications during her pregnancy, however she maintained her condition well and delivered a beautiful healthy filly. She has continued to maintain her weight (and glow) through lactation and the foal has remained healthy and strong, with no scouring during the 'foal heat'. I've found my horses seem to be absorbing the nutrients from their feed better, requiring lower feeding rates of concentrated feed, with improved hoof and coat condition. It's well worth investing in good gut health with Digestive EQ. Less supplements and low fuss feeding!
Hi. My 3 giddy ups have really only just started on this product so once I’ve had them on it a bit longer I will share some pics.
I have a stressy tb, very hard to keep weight on over winter. Since starting in Digestive EQ he has maintained his weight, he is relaxed in the stable, he doesn’t fret if he can see paddock friends , generally a much more relaxed happier horse to deal with
Fantastic product. Have started my daughters pony on it and he has calmed right down and seems happier in himself. Ordered the product and it was hand delivered right to my front door by one of the lovely Poseidon ladies. Quick service and delivery with a smile
Just started to use it and my horse is happily eating it. Thank goodness
Very quick delivery arrived in good condition. Excellent product to give my horses
Digestive EQ has changed my horses lives. The results speak for themselves
Amazing stuff my colt has suspected ulcers , dull coat and wouldn’t put weight on started him on eq couple months later and now is fat and glossy and on a diet
Just wanted to show you results of the Digestive EQ on my two ponies. Previously on this horse you could not use any shine/coat products as his skin was so sensitive and he just reacted and was itchy and suffered from hives. Now I don’t need to use anything as his coat is amazing. . Due to the stress of travelling and a new home, he had suffered from ulcers, so I used gastric ulcer treatment. The only product that worked was Digestive EQ. I cannot recommend your product highly enough.
Digestive EQ IS amazing product that allowed me to ride my horse for the first time in 6 months.
Battling gastric ulcers and suspected hindgut ulcers had left my pockets empty with expensive medication and vet bills, and worse,no hope of ever riding again. Symptoms still remained after all my efforts to fix him.
I came across Poseidon products searching for another vitamin and mineral supplement as mine had run out. I bought the VM. I messaged Poseidon with some questions and Linda called me immediately to discuss with me her products. Linda showed a genuine concern for the issues my horse was having and suggested I try the Digestive EQ after watching a video I sent her. So I purchased some. Best money I have ever spent. Four days in and I actually rode my horse on Saturday. I cannot recommend this product enough to anyone with suspected gut issues.
So happy i gave it a shot. Happy riding for me thank you Linda and Poseidon
Thank you so much for your amazing product. We have a team ranging from a 17h+ Warmblood to a 13h Welsh B and the benefits of Digestive EQ is evident on all of them. They have recently completed in 4 Royal Shows over different States and Grand Nationals. They have maintained weight, their coats are amazing and they are calm & responsive which has allowed us many wins. It is great having peace of mind regarding the amount of research and dedication that has gone into this product. I can not recommend it highly enough
3 weeks into using this fabulous product and I can see a big difference in my 3 ponies. Highly recommend Digestive EQ
Digestive EQ has changed my life (and space in the feed room) in the fact that now I only need ONE supplement instead of 4-5! Absolutely vital product for TBs, both on and off the track. Horses have all gained and maintained weight really well on it. Also great support/advice from the Poseidon team.
Pic of my OTTB who was a bag of bones a month ago-look at that shine and dapples after a fresh clip!
Fantastic product all my horses are Digestive EQ started with my Very girthy gelding with amazing results and with a shiny coat as an added bonus so put the others on it ..... amazing results !!! Healthy from the inside out ❤️
The Digestive EQ is just awesome, I have tried several things to try and make my horses look and feel better but they never quite get there!
I have been feeding for about a month now to my 2 show horses, and not only do they look better but they feel great too, I have seen a change in there attitude for the better!!
Happy healthy horses very happy with it
I have gone from having an array of different supplements and veterinary digestive treatments for my horses to only Digestive EQ and Digestive VM. My horses are the most calm and healthy they've been in years. Thank you.
Most amazing product on the market. Does what 20 products do in the one bucket! Cannot recommend more highly !!!
Fantastic product that has significantly improved my teams competition experience. They happily eat when away and are alot less stressed. Thankyou
Since starting my horse on Digestive EQ 4 weeks ago he is so much more relaxed and is eating better. After treating for ulcers and having him on other maintenance supplements for the past 8 months I had struggled to put weight on him. He is now on a basic diet and fed only a fraction of what he used to get, and is improving to put weight on each week. Thank you Linda for all your help, I highly recommend this product.
This is the best product ever!!! Can’t rate it highly enough over a wide range of types from off the track tbs to riding pony youngstock It has done wonders for our horses and ponies in a very short period of time ... LOVE IT
Have had my boy on Digestive EQ for 2-3 weeks and the change has been incredible! So much calmer and actually wants to eat now!
Immediate difference! I am very happy that my mare is happier and calmer. Highly reccommend as I've tried many
I’ve been using Digestive EQ for about a month now on my pony and have already seen a difference in her overall condition and coat. Thank you Linda for recommending this product to me. It is the only one that she doesn’t sift out of her feed. It is also cost effective which is a big plus. I highly recommend this product and will certainly be continuing to use it.
Digestive EQ was recommended to us by a client and is now, along with Digestive VM, a staple tool to help our horses feel and perform their best. The team at Poseidon Equine is passionate about what they do and are committed to putting the horses first and developing products that deliver!
Highly recommend Digestive EQ! It has helped my fella gain weight, build a top line and increase his appetite! His whole persona changed, so grateful for such an amazing product like Digestive EQ!
Could not recommend Poseidon Equine highly enough! From day one I have received personalised care and advice from the incredibly knowledgeable team at Poseidon. My young mare struggled with ulcers, scouring and weight loss until finding Digestive Eq! A year later and my mare is a picture of health, her coat glows and she is performing better under saddle than she ever has. Thankyou Poseidon Equine for changing my horses life!!
I am currently using this product on our seasoned as well as young show horses. The results are incredible. Blooming coats, healthy hooves and a demonstrable happiness within themselves. This product is and will continue to be a permanent part of my feeding regime.
My mares attitude changed she was so calm and wasn't a stress head in the paddock. Looked a million dollars. Highly recommended.
I cannot thank Linda enough for her assistance and knowledge on the hind gut and helping me with my horses nutrition. In just 3 weeks I have seen unbelievable results with my gelding who has struggled for over 12 months with smelly loose manure, and since being on DIGESTIVE EQ for the first time ever he has solid normal manure. His gut is less bloated and his coat is immaculate! He is looking and feeling great and is working amazingly. The results truely speak for themselves. I have one VERY happy horse!
I have noticed the most incredible difference in both my horses since using Disgestive EQ. They both seem to be more eager to work, their coats are amazing, they look a million dollars. Totally converted now! Thank you!
Outstanding product. Turned around the health of our hind gut-prone OTTB and we now swear by Digestive EQ.
I’ve had huge success with the digestive EQ product, both my 2 mares are in full performance work and one struggling with suspected ulcers, with digestive eq I have been able to wean my mare practically off ulcer shield which she had been on everyday for over a year! Highly recommend this product to any performance horse owners, I’ve seen a noticeable difference in the horses.
Linda was also very helpful and gave great advice and was able answer all my questions.
