Speedbump with Colt Lyons. This is one of his first work ups as
he recovers from wobbles.
Speedbump, recovered from wobbles, on his way to surgery for
final repair of a large tear on his left hip, injured when
his hindquarters were uncontrollable. Not everything was initially
removed from the wound so it was reopened and flushed.

“…A miracle that we found this awesome product in time to save this

By Crystal Lyons

In the fall of 2003 we purchased a weanling Quarter horse colt.
Within about 3 to 4 months, we began noticing that he wasn't traveling
right. His hind quarters just didn't move right. Within a short time,
he worsened considerably to the point we even debated putting him
down. We got a couple of veterinarian's diagnosis and were dismayed
to find it was wobbles.
Wobbles effects the horse's ability to control his hindquarters.
He couldn't back up. If he tried, he fell over back wards. When he
laid down it was getting harder and taking longer to get back up.
Often, he would work to get on his feet until exhausting himself
and would have to lay there and rest awhile before trying again.
We knew the day was coming when he wouldn't be able to get up at
all and we would have to put him down. It has been believed for a
long time that there is no cure for wobbles.
During this time, we came across EquiPride and bought it to give
to another young horse we had. We at first made the decision to only
feed the one colt and not "waste it" on "Speedbump",
but just nonchalantly started feeding it to him anyway. We never
expected it to improve him in any way---we just "did" it,
feeling like it was a waste of money to put these good minerals into
a horse that
we would probably have to put down within the year.
I am SO THANKFUL that we did! Within a couple months, we began to
notice an improvement in the way Speedbump was moving, but we were
so sure that he couldn't be helped by anything other than a miracle
from God, that we actually thought it was just our imagination! Well,
really in a way it IS a miracle from God. A miracle that we found
this awesome product in time to save this horse's life and to save
the investment we had made in this fine colt. Soon, it began to be
so obvious that EquiPride literally did a reversal of the damage
in his neck and spine to where I decided to get on him and begin
his training. You have to understand what this meant. If he tried
to take one step backwards, he instantly flipped over! He was now
able to move off his hindquarters, back up, back out of a trailer,
lope....I even let our 12 year old son begin to ride him! He's doing
awesome. This fall we will send him to a reining horse trainer and
Lord willing, by the spring of 2006, I will be taking him to horse
fairs and rodeos to perform on for concerts and cowboy church services.
If you see me on a big, muscular gray at some western event---come
talk to me and meet "Speedbump".
We now feed EquiPride to every horse on the place. We also feed
the tub (EquiLix) to our mares in the pasture. Since getting it,
their coats are slick and shiny and nobody chews on the bark of trees
or board fences anymore. We thank God for EquiPride because it literally
gave Speedbump back his life!
