Equine Elixirs products Ulceraser® and Positude® are staples in top show jumper Amanda Derbyshire’s feed room at Baxter Hill Farm, helping keep the horses in her care healthy and happy.
“Our barn has been using Ulceraser® for the last year. We’ve seen really good results with it,” Derbyshire said. “The thing I like the most is that we don’t have to feed 100 supplements anymore. We don’t have the wastage [that we had with other products]. Before, we were finding that with the amount of supplements that we were putting in the horses’ buckets, at the end of the day most of the powder was left behind. With Ulceraser®, it’s all gone. They eat it like grain and they really seem to love it.”
Ulceraser®, an all-natural forage-based blend, is designed to promote gut health and help prevent the recurrence of ulcers. Ulceraser® is a proprietary blend of ingredients that helps build and strengthen stomach and intestinal mucosa, reduce inflammation, increase circulation, boost the immune system, reduce anxiety and nervousness, and clear sand and debris from the gut. Unlike pastes and powders that horses avoid, they love to eat the forage-based Ulceraser, so there’s no waste or mess, and even the pickiest eaters approve.
Derbyshire, who hails from England but has lived in the U.S. for nine years, made her international championship debut last year at the FEI World Equestrian Games Tryon 2018 riding Luibanta BH for the team from Great Britain. In March, she topped the $134,000 Horseware Ireland Grand Prix CSI3* with Roulette BH during the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL, and she’s had recent top placings in grand prix classes at shows such as Devon (PA), the Upperville Colt & Horse Show (VA), Longines Masters of New York, and the Royal Horse Show (Canada).
This year, the all-natural, extract-based hormone balancing liquid supplement, Positude®, joined Ulceraser® in Derbyshire’s program. Positude®is an all-natural alternative to Depo-Provera that is made from highly concentrated leaf, berry, and root extracts. Positude® is more effective than other products made from powders because extracts contain only concentrated active ingredients, while powders include inactive and inert elements, resulting in a less effective product. Daily inclusion of Positude™ as a top-dress in feed allows for a consistent delivery, unlike weekly or monthly injections of Depo-Provera, which result in hormonal fluctuations and peaks and troughs of effectiveness. Like Ulceraser®, Positude® contains no prohibited substances and is safe for showing under USEF and FEI rules.
“What I like most about Positude is the fact that it’s USEF-safe and FEI-safe. That’s a really big bonus in a big barn with a lot of horses in it,” Derbyshire said. “I also like that it’s affordable. In many of the big barns, a lot of the horses are on Depo, and this way, it’s not breaking everyone’s bank. The third thing I’d say about it is that it’s a lot more consistent in the horse’s system. Rather than the highs and lows you get with the Depo [injections], this is twice a day in their feed every day, and I think that’s a lot better for the horse’s system.”
Ulceraser® and Positude® have become the go-to gut-health and hormonal support supplements for top riders like Derbyshire, McLain Ward, Scott Stewart, Tori Colvin, Jimmy Torano, Kevin Babington, Peter Pletcher, and more.
A 30-ounce bottle of Positude®, which is a 30-day supply, costs just $49.99, and a 30-day supply of Ulceraser® costs just $59.99. Auto-ship options are available. Find out more and order both Positude® and Ulceraser® online at www.equineelixirs.com.
