A top-dress which combines several nutritional factors into one powerful supplement.

EquiPride blends vitamins, organic complexed minerals, stabilized milled flax and distillers grains with ProBiotein®, our proprietary additive.

“With EquiPride, we noticed that our horses had more endurance but without becoming excitable - or ‘HOT.’ Most people feed extra grain to get that extra energy but we don’t have to. We’ve virtually eliminated graining our horses.” LAURA MILLER Westcliffe, Colorado

Feeding Instructions:
1 scoop per 100 wt1 scoop per 100 wt

EquiPride Instructions:

• Feed 1 oz daily per 100 lbs (cwt) of body weight (10 oz for a 1,000 lb horse).

One full Cup of the included scoop weighs 5 oz.

• Feeding may be increased 50 percent (1.5 oz / cwt) to improve initial intake and performance.

• Do not exceed 4 lbs / hd in one day.

Note: Keep sealed to minimize evaporative loss of ethyl alcohol and organic acids.

More InformationProBiotein

ProBiotein is a proprietary blend-additive consisting of yeast
culture, prebiotic oligosaccharides, Beta-glucan, enzymes, and protein isolates.

The Yeast in ProBiotein, cultured on a media of wheat, oats, barley malt and flax, is rich in biotin and other nutrients to aid digestion. The Oligosaccharides, often called “prebiotics,” because they feed the beneficial probiotic bacteria, are a key part of the ProBiotein additive. These prebiotics help maintain good digestive tract health.

Enzymes, the catalysts of digestion are included in a fibrolytic, amylolytic & proteolytic array to assist fiber, protein and mineral utilization.Omega 3 Flax Factor

Flax helps in many ways. The oil is dense energy which is high in Omega 3 fatty acid content. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid often missing in modern diets. Flax is also among the richest sources of lignans, which help improve immune function. Organic complexed minerals are featured. Zinc, copper and manganese are complexed, or bound to protein instead of other minerals, assuring high bioavailability.

EquiPride also includes ethyl alcohol to raise palatability, enhance fiber digestion and add another non-starch energy source. Now with feed efficiency boost, the cost of maintaining your horse in top condition can be reduced.

Look for up to 25% improvement in forage feed efficiency with SweetPro’s EquiPride.

Horse Digestive System

Digestive Aid, Vitamin and Mineral Supplement for Horses

Horses are hind-gut, foraging herbivores with a comparatively small stomach. A horse left to it’s natural foraging patterns will graze on high fiber grasses and hay many hours of the day allowing its small stomach to balance acid and enzyme digestion with the fermentation digestion of the cecum and colon (hind gut).

Because so many horses are boarded in stalls and non-pasture confines, they are fed in shorter time periods and with more concentrated energy feeds such as grain that is high in starch.

This is where SweetPro® Feeds EquiPride is helpful in aiding the digestion of the typical stable diet.

How EquiPride Works

ForegutBecause a horse produces less natural amylase (starch digestive enzyme) than other animals, (i.e. 10% of what hogs produce) the chances are greater for undigested starch reaching the cecum and colon.

The cecum and colon are the areas where feed is digested by other organisms rather than by acid and enzymes. Mostly, the populations of these organisms prefer hay and other forages, not grain. As a result, elevated levels of grain starch force a shift in their population and in the process, acid levels rise and start to cause problems such as colic, laminitis and ulcers.Hindgut

EquiPride as a digestive aid consists largely of externally processed ingredients that have been pre-digested for the horse and improves the nutrient utilization of the horse’s entire ration, as well as adding key nutrients.

ProBiotein® is the SweetPro® Feeds proprietary “blend additive” in EquiPride which constitutes the digestive aid. We stress the blend aspect of ProBiotein® since digestion is a complex process that is influenced by many factors and combinations of factors. No single “silver bullet” ingredient is
going to get the job done.


• Enzymes (amylolytic, fibrolytic, proteolytic)
• Yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae)
• Fiber and fermentation metabolites
• Oligosaccharides (prebiotic, i.e., food for probiotic bacteria)
• Beta-glucan from oats
• Protein Isolates (wheat, oats, barley, corn and flax) broadens amino acid profile

Flax Factor

Omega3 fatty acids (alpha linolenic with lignans).

Vitamins and Minerals

• Vitamins (A, D, E and d-Biotin are added to B complex vitamin from yeast);
• Minerals (organic complexed trace minerals to raise bioavailability).

The amylases added to your horse’s diet via EquiPride include both alpha amylase and glucoamylase (aspergillus oryzac extract) to help mitigate problems. Additionally, there are other enzymes helping digest fiber, protein and minerals. Blended with the enzymes are oligosaccharides and Beta-glucan that help feed the beneficial bacteria and help keep their populations high enough to exclude pathogenic bacteria from getting a foothold.

A noteworthy component of the EquiPride blend is flax, which is best known for its rich source of omega 3 fatty acid, so often neglected in modern diets. Flax is one of the highest sources of lignans. Lignans contribute to immune function. The major lignan in flax is SDG (seicoisolariciresinol diglucoside).

Lignans from flax are being studied in human applications because of strong antioxidant properties that may play a positive role in certain cancers. This characteristic of lignans may also be responsible for reduction in atherosclerotic plaque formation noted in animal studies. The development of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes has been shown to be due in part to oxidative stress. The flax lignan SDG has been found to be effective in lowering the onset of both types of diabetes due to its potent anti oxidative ability.

All these factors and components of EquiPride add up to improved digestion allowing the horse’s immune system to maintain a wellness that virtually eliminates the need for costly gastric, joint, hoof and other chronic malady treatments, while giving energy, weight maintenance and a shiny coat to this magnificent animal.

And this final note – when digestion is improved, less total feed is needed. We are seeing forage requirements drop by over 20%. Depending on prices, one can recover nearly half the cost of EquiPride in feed savings alone!

EquiPride is the ounce of prevention that eliminates the pound of cure.
