Hailey Prest – Multiple Horses – thin soles – loose stool - tying up – hot headed – reduced injections

John Dowdy:

Hello, and welcome to this week's Equinety podcast. We are swinging up into the great country of Canada, eh. Up in the West Coast. We've got Hailey Prest on the call. Hailey, welcome to the Equinety podcast.

Hailey Prest:

Hi, thank you so much for having me.

John Dowdy:

Well, it has been a long time coming. You've been using our product now for about three years, and we've been having these podcasts for two years, so it's taken us awhile. I know you have a very busy schedule, but here we are. So we're excited to have you.

Hailey Prest:

Oh, thank you. No, I'm really excited to get on here and share my story. So my story with Equinety, I've used it on multiple horses, but I'll talk about four that I have noticed tremendous differences with.

Hailey Prest:

The first horse would be ... the first horse I tried Equinety on was an older gelding I had. And he had really thin soles, and we were couldn't ... we were trying everything to get them thicker and stronger and build them up. This is through the winter months, and Canada winters ... or, Canadian winters, I should say, are not the warmest. There's a reason why everyone wants to go South

John Dowdy:

Down here in the States we think Canada's got snow 24/7/365.

Hailey Prest:

Oh, I know. I have actually met people and they're like, so how are your polar bears? I'm like, oh, they're great. Yeah. No, I get that all the time. I even got that from a gentlemen that said that to me when I was in Oregon. I was like, you do realize that British Columbia, Canada is only ... I can make it there in a day, right? It's not five hours ... or five days or something.

Hailey Prest:

But so anyways, this horse he was having ... he was about 25. So it means he's not a young spring chicken anymore, but everything else seemed pretty healthy on him, except he was really loose and I couldn't seem to get him firmed up and his feet were just ... and his coat started to get dull and it was just, ugh. So that's when I had started talking to you and I started him on a Equinety and I couldn't believe the difference because his ... the light in his eye kind of came back and his coat got better. His feet got harder and started to you grow better. And his stool obviously firmed up as well. So I was really happy to see all that change with him. And another horse I had, this was a four year old, so he's been on [crosstalk 00:02:36].

John Dowdy:

Now, before you jump into that one, about ... what was the approximate timeframe on all of that happening?

Hailey Prest:

I noticed the stool firming up in about just a couple of days with him. And then it was about six, seven weeks [inaudible 00:02:54] my farrier was there next. So, I mean, I saw him walk around better. And I was living at the time in Abbotsford, British Columbia. So it's right on the coast so, I mean, you get rain 365 days a year, it feels like sometimes. And my place is built on a gravel pit. So everything drained really well, but I mean, they're still wet. And so, I mean, I noticed a difference, but it was really a huge difference to me when I had my farrier. He doesn't really talk very much. He was like, what are you feeding this horse? Something has changed. And I was like, oh, okay, perfect. I'm going to make a note of this. I'm glad that he noticed.

John Dowdy:

That's awesome.

Hailey Prest:

So that was about the timeframe on that horse.

John Dowdy:

Right. Now, for those of you tuning into this podcast, we're going to be talking about four horses in particular and then another crew of just treating horses in general. So it's multiple horses, multiple things going on here, different problems, different horses, and how this one product, Equinety Horse XL, has helped each one. And I'll get into the science of that as we go along here and why it works in so many different ways with different horses. So, okay. So horse number two.

Hailey Prest:

Horse number two, I'll make it as my gelding, who is [CL Rooster 00:04:16]. When this accident happened with him in the spring, he was only four at the time. And through his training, through the winter and early spring months, I was having a really hard time with him actually tying up quite often. So I was trying everything I can to help out with that and keep him calm and just helping out with his tying up. But this accident that happened in ... when was that? I think ... It was end of April and he came in from the field and I had his gate tied open. It was on a huge pole, a big, thick pole. And he flew in and he hit his hip, I guess he didn't realize how big he is and how much of a tank he is, and he took the pole out [inaudible 00:05:06], gate was attached to it and tied. So it was a big, heavy gate too.

Hailey Prest:

And he took the whole poll out with his hip and the gate and everything. And, of course, being me, I go up to him like, okay, what are we dealing with here? And he's, I think he was more embarrassed because he wouldn't let me see his hip and he's really sensitive. And, oh he was such a character. And so I get him and I'm checking him out and I'm really close with my vet. So of course I get on the phone with him, I'm like, okay, so this just happened. Send him the pictures, and he's like, okay, you're going to have to rest him up and put your therapeutic blankets on him and do your barrel racer thing. And you're going to ... you can't ride him for months, basically is what I got from my vet. And I was like, okay, this is not part of my program. I don't have time for him to be off for that many months. Because I think he said about four ... three or four months that it was going to take for just to keep every ... just to make sure a hundred percent again, because he had ... his hip was opened with this injury.

Hailey Prest:

And so I, of course, he was on Equinety already, so I doubled up his dosage for a little bit. And I phoned my vet because I go out to feed one morning and I didn't have stalls I could lock them in at night, but I had smaller pens I made, and Rooster is out there running and bucking and I phone my vet and I'm like, ah, just so you know, this is happening. And he's like, I'm down the road doing a call, I'll come and see him. You can't have him be running around. And he showed up and he goes, I can't believe that this horse is feeling as good as he is. The inflammation is gone in his ... he had a ... so where he hit the pole or the gate, I guess, the hinge, it cut into his hip. He had an open wound there and it was just nasty. And he was like, I can't believe how clean this looks, how well it's all healing. He just couldn't believe how good that looked. And he was like, what kind of barrel racer trick are doing? What therapeutic joint blanket are you using? What's the thing?

Hailey Prest:

I said, well, I'm using my back on track and I'm feeding Equinety. And he's like, Equinety? And I said, yeah, you're going to have to look it up. I said, I ... And then I of course tell him about it and he's like, oh, okay. Good to know. And so I was really impressed by that vet being so shocked at what he looked like. And it definitely cut down, obviously, his healing time with it because when ... he came about a month and a half roughly after that, and I was ... it was going to be double that. So, no, it was definitely a good savior for that one.

John Dowdy:

For sure. Well, I'll tell you, with all the feedback we've received, we've been on the market now going on seven years. And it's probably one of the most common things when you're dealing with an injured horse or one that's come out of a surgery, or they're just trying to repair from some kind of an injury using this product, all the feedback. And of course we don't hear a hundred percent of them, but the people that are pretty outspoken, they always report that the horse is back faster than what they were told or whatever the projected time. So that's very, very common.

Hailey Prest:

Yeah. I was really pleased with that, on the recovery time. Because we've all ... If you own a horse, you've been through injuries, it's just something that happens. And especially when you're in a competitive performance work world, you don't have that time always to stall rest one for six months. Not that his was going to be for six months, but I've had other horses that, I didn't have Equinety at the time and thinking back, man, what would that have meant for that horse's career if he didn't have to be laid off in the midst of a season and had them come back stronger and feeling better.

John Dowdy:

Absolutely. Okay. Let's go into the next one.

Hailey Prest:

So the next horse I want to talk to you about was a little gray mare that we had and she was naturally just really hot headed. She had a really hard time focusing on anything. You could see her out in her stall and she'd just be busy. It looked like we just send her buckets and buckets and buckets of [sweet feed 00:00:09:45] or a hot starchy grain, you know? And she'd just twitch out. And I was like, what is wrong with this horse when she got here? And she was really mareish and just nasty. And I always had her over in her own area. And this is actually my boyfriend's horse at the time. And he ... [inaudible 00:10:09] aren't very known, or at least the ones I was around, weren't known for riding every single day. And all the things that [inaudible 00:10:17]. And this mare, she'd spin in the box on him and she'd scale anything she was tied to.

Hailey Prest:

And it was just kind of not ... she just wouldn't focus and do her job. And I'm not expecting horses to stand like rocks and ... I'm not expecting them to just stand still and only do their job and go back to the trailer with their head down, not in the performance world that I'm in at least. And so this mare, I started feeding her Equinety and he couldn't believe it, she wasn't spinning around in the box anymore. She was easier to be around. And I just, I really noticed a difference with her because when you got on her or when you came around her, she was like, okay, game on. I'm ready to focus. We're going to do a job. And she finally had somewhere to channel all that energy to ... into something productive instead of pacing my fence line and digging a ditch.

John Dowdy:

And again, it's one of those, we hear this all the time horses that have a lot of stress, anxiety, bit spooky. And we've got a lot of feedback from people that they've seen complete demeanor changes in as little as two to three days even.

Hailey Prest:

Oh yeah, no, this mare definitely changed within days. And I thought, okay, how long are we going to be this forward to see something change and all that. But no, she immediately ... like when, before Equinety, you'd into her pen and she'd beeline it way from you, and then come at you ... like not come at you mean, but come near you and you wouldn't be able to walk up and pet her. It was like a game for her. And first thing in the morning, there's no games I play. I'm still asleep usually, when I go out and feed. Until I have my coffee and my humans to wake up, nothing. I don't talk, I don't nothing. So I'm not going to go out there and play games with a horse.

Hailey Prest:

And then after Equinety, she ... there was this ... she didn't run around as much in her pen. And I'm all fine, if they want to run around and buck and play, that's great. I want my horses to be feeling good for that. I don't want them to run around like a chicken with their head cut off for no apparent reason. And that's kind of what this horse was like before Equinety. And after having it, she was like, okay, I have ... she was just way more focused in doing a job and just being a pleasure to be around.

John Dowdy:

Right. Yeah. Now, after we talk about this next horse, I'll get into why this product helps in so many ways and why these things are happening just in the three that you've described, but we'll go on to number four now.

Hailey Prest:

Okay. So number four would be the mare that I was running at the time. Her name is [Ms. Copper Cartel 00:00:13:17] and she was my main feral horse. With her, I noticed ... So I had treated her for ulcers, but I wanted to put her on a supplement to kind of maintain healthy gut function and everything after that. And when you start Googling and researching, it's amazing how many you can find. And for me, I'm a scientific person. I like ... I love hearing testimonies from people, but I want to know the science behind why does it work? What's the thing? And that's what I liked about Equinety, is it has the scientific facts, you have the data, you have all this stuff to say, this is the product and this is why it works.

Hailey Prest:

And as you know, that amino acids like that is, if you don't have ... Well, if you don't have the right amount or the right type of essential amino acids, it's not going to get absorbed properly. So that's one thing I really liked about Equinety, is that it is really cost-effective to only feed ... you only have to feed one scoop, but you are getting the right kind of amino acids, the right type, and the right amount of them. And I also like that it's also really cost effective then, you can choose? The more horses, or get more horses to then feed it to and all that, right? That way. That's the way I looked at it. I was like, okay, if I put it on this product, that gives me so much more money than I can put towards buying another horse.

John Dowdy:

Yes. Now, I want to expand on that for sure. Now, so with the ulcers, what'd you find there specifically how it was helping with the ulcer issues?

Hailey Prest:

So with her ... Right. So with her, I noticed, I knew she had ulcers when you ... I would touch her on her side and she just, she was hurting. And we had a really stressful season. So I treated her for the ulcers. But as soon as ... before I treated her, if you'd touch anywhere around her back cinch to in her flank, or going up towards her lumbar at all, she ... it would, she was hurting. So I treated her for the ulcers and then I started her on Equinety and that spring, the next ... I was getting ready for the next season after I had started her on Equinety for a little bit. And she's a harder mare too, so I had noticed the same with her as I had noticed that the gray mare that they have better focus. They're not as marey, they're more focused to do a job ... excuse me, and they had faster recovery just coming with runs.

Hailey Prest:

But so I had started her on Equinety and I had gone to ride her again for the next season after treating for the ulcers. I go to do my back cinch up and you kind of see that she's waiting for it to hurt. She kind of had like her stance. And I just pet her and I rubbed her and she turned around and she's like, that doesn't hurt. That was hurting for a long time and last year that really hurt. And I just rub her and rub her and she's like, oh, then she started licking her lips and get her saddle up. And there was no pinning on the ears. And I was like, nice dragon, be nice. And she's a doll, but she's very ... you can tell any ... I've had her since she was two and she'll be 14 this year. So I know everything there is to know about her. So she has a look when you ... she thinks something's going to happen and then there's a look when something is going to happen. And so I only had the one look the whole time, but I was like, this isn't going to hurt you. So I was really, really happy with that.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. Now, one of the other things, this is a horse that you would typically have injected on a regular basis?

Hailey Prest:

Yeah, no, I've had her injected in her hock and I did her side folds, and I did it as just a maintenance thing just to ... Like I said, I'm a very scientific, based person. So I mean, I'll feed a supplement, but I'm always worried they're not going to eat at all. So I mix it with water or add something to it so everything would stick to the grain or whatever I was trying to get them to eat. So with injections, I knew that they get the whole syringe of that injection. And when I started feeding it Equinety, I was mixing it with water because I was like, I don't know if they're going to get it down and I hate feeding product and seeing it on the floor. So I was mixing it with water and then one day I forgot and I'd go into their stalls and be like, oh my gosh, I better put some water in there.

Hailey Prest:

I'm just like, running around the side of the barn and my horses are licking their buckets clean with no water in it. Like they just ... And they've eaten it right, actually, out of my hands too. Like I wanted to see if they actually like it or if it stuck to their grain or something. So that tells me a lot, that if your horse is going to choose that supplement, there's something in it that they know they need. And it's not full of molasses and sugar or starches or fillers. It's what it is. And they have licked my hand clean when I put it on my hand to see if they've actually eaten it or if they just blow it and it would go everywhere.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. Awesome. Well, for those of you who are tuning in for the first time, maybe you're doing your research, you've come across our product and you're trying to find out more about what this is. And we're specifically talking about the Equinety Horse XL in this podcast. We actually have two products, but the Equinety Horse XL is the one that we've been out with for going on seven years now. And what that is, it's 100% pure amino acids. There's no fillers, no sugars, no starches. And there's no loading dose. So that large tub, which is a hundred dollars here in the US, has a hundred servings in it. So it runs a dollar a day. And it's eight specific amino acids that are specifically designed to give the body what it needs to release the necessary hormones from the pituitary gland and those hormones are specific for repair.

John Dowdy:

And so when you can get the body to release its own hormones, it's now that horse's body that's sending its own hormones to the problem areas. So when we go back and just recap these four particular horses, you've got one that had a serious injury on the hip with an open wound, tying up issues. It kind of fixed all that. Then you have an older horse with horrible feet, thin soles, loose stool. And I think you even mentioned, Hailey, prior to us recording this call, how the farrier, you could have the best farrier on the planet and if there's nothing to work with, what are they supposed to do? You know? And so-

Hailey Prest:

Exactly.

John Dowdy:

And so one of the great things with this product, and again, it doesn't fall into the category of a hoof supplement, a joint supplement, a calmer, a shiny coat, or muscle building. It doesn't fit into any one of those specific categories, but when it comes specific to the hooves, it's really giving the body what it needs to again, to release those hormones. And then you're going to find, as you with your horse, thicker souls, all around healthier hoof growth, and ultimately this has given you a farrier more to work with in a shorter amount of time. The other horse, just a hotheaded, stressed, kind of doing her thing and then she's more calm and more focused. The other one with ulcers, you were able to reduce the injections, but overall just calmer. So this is why the product helps in so many ways, because again, we're giving the body what it needs to release its own hormones.

John Dowdy:

And then it's that particular horse that's sending its own hormones to the problem areas with pinpoint accuracy. And so in essence, it's customizing to each horse. Now, one of the other things that you had mentioned about cost-effective, saving money and you can spend more money on other things, I didn't ask you this before, but would you agree, and this is, I guess, a leading question. But a lot of the feedback that we get, people are typically saving anywhere from 20% to 40% in medical and other supplements just by using this one product.

Hailey Prest:

Oh, for sure. And what I was going to say too, is that, I always call it doing the barrel racer, when you look for a supplement, say it's for their belly, for their ulcers, or see something. And then you get, oh, they're getting older, I'm really going to work them this season so I should have them on a joint supplement. And then it's, oh, well, they might need more muscle help or something. They might need this. And then what about that? And what about this? And you get going, like I was hauling with a girl, a quick story. I was hauling with a girl and she, I was loading one side of, I was doing the living quarters and she was loading her grain and stuff up. And we get to the barrel race and she unloads a moving tub of bags and jars.

Hailey Prest:

And I'm standing there with my grain and my Equinety, and I feed Platinum, and I'm like, oh, oh, maybe I should ... I feel kind of weird because I'm not making a science project in a bucket for a horse. I'm not adding a sprinkle of this, a fairy dust of that, and three pumps of this stuff. I'm just standing there, like why, what is all this for? And she could tell me. She's like, this has this, this has that, this has this. And I was thinking, and she was telling me, why she was feeding each one. And I was thinking, well yeah, I had a horse that had an injury and I had him on Equinety. And yeah, my horse had thin soles and I put him on a Equinety. And yeah, my horse had ... I used to do injections and this and that, and I give him Equinety.

Hailey Prest:

And I was kind of going through this, that this is kind of, this isn't a one size fits all because it's going to be different for each horse, but this is a product that I feel like I can feed this to absolutely every horse I have and it will fix or help with a problem area. Whether that's thin soles, whether that's their ulcers. It's kind of, I feel like [inaudible 00:23:59] just kind of goes to the area that needs the most attention and then just kind of helps everything out. Once everything gets in balance, then it's a great maintainer product as well. And I've had it on tons of training horses I've had in, and it's great to see them all feel great too.

Hailey Prest:

And I mean, there's other stories that we could go into about their injuries that they've had and how Equinety has sped that up and that, but I love that it's one product that's going to cover everything from head to tail. From withers to feet, everything in between, that this is something that is ... it's essential in my program basically, is what I'm trying to say.

John Dowdy:

No, it is. And I tell people it's not a miracle supplement, but it has sure has done some miraculous things. And when you come across a product for the first time, and then you start seeing some of the before and afters, or you start reading some of the testimonials. And at first thought people are like, oh my gosh, this is what I've been looking for. But then as you keep reading, you're like, come on. All right, this can't be. This sounds way-

Hailey Prest:

Where's the negative Nancy.

John Dowdy:

Way too good to be true. And then we have converted so many of the skeptics in a big way. But when it gets back to it, and you kind of mentioned this, it's amino acids. And here's one of the great things with amino acids. And we're blessed because again, we had no idea this was going to help the way that it has in the horse industry.

John Dowdy:

But what we're finding is it doesn't matter where in the country or what country the horse is in, what they're doing for a job, what their diet is. It could be the best of the best of everything. And they all seem to be benefiting from this product. So we just have to conclude that horses in general are deficient in the right amount of amino acids. And that's really what this is doing. And so it just helps get the horse back to where you want it to be balanced. Balancing it from the inside out.

John Dowdy:

It gives a farrier more to work with in a shorter amount of time. It helps the repairing process much faster. The other thing, because it's already in the amino acid stage, it starts working in 24 hours. And I would say the vast majority of people, and I'm talking upper 90 percentile, have given feedback in 30 days or less that they notice changes. It could be the spark in the eye. It could be softer shinier coat. They're just moving better. They feel better. So those are pretty darn common things that we just hear over and over and over again.

Hailey Prest:

Oh yeah, no, I noticed differences, especially with the mares, with them focusing and just being easier to be around in general. I noticed that in the days. It didn't take me 30 days to be like, you know what, you're really nice to be around today. You go out there in a couple of days and you're like, okay, there, Sally, your attitude has changed. Things are good. You're feeling better. You're not looking at me like you're going to bite me and everyone's happy.

John Dowdy:

That's awesome.

Hailey Prest:

No, I noticed really quick results with it. And that's something too that I liked that I didn't have to feed a lot to see a difference. Because then you ... For me, then I start going into, okay, if I have to feed this much, that cuts down on how many servings are going to be in the tub if I have to feed half of it to see a result right away.

Hailey Prest:

So with this, I mean, when I needed, when I felt like my horses needed a little extra punch or if we were on the road for a long time or had a really stressful haul or if they had their injury, then I would update them to two scoops. But I just keep everyone on one and just kept it easy and less is more for me in my program. I like stuff that I can pronounce and understand what it is. And with Equinety, I mean, it's pretty self-explanatory on why it works and how it is. And I also liked that it's easy to travel with too. I didn't have to have a moving bin full of products to get the same results as Equinety does. So I like that too. It's easy to fit. It's not a big, bulky thing. It's not heavy, obviously.

John Dowdy:

Yeah, it's about half the size of a Folgers coffee can. I mean, and it's got a hundred servings in there, so it's very easy to haul. One of the things, because you had kind of touched upon this a couple of times. So just, anybody that might have this question in their head, I had mentioned that it targets the pituitary gland. So if you have a horse with Cushing's, we have tons and tons and tons of testimonials with how this has helped with Cushing's horses. It's a hundred percent safe because we're trying to balance the right amount of aminos. I'm sorry, the right amount of hormones that are coming out of the pituitary.

John Dowdy:

And also it's a hundred percent safe with any other medications or supplements. And as a matter of fact, whatever you're giving your horse, we recommend to not change any of that and just add this to it. Because it's just a teaspoon and it doesn't matter if it's a mini horse or a draft horse, they all get the same dose, which is kind of what you had mentioned. Because it's based on the size of the pituitary gland, not on the size of the horse. And so we recommend just adding this to whatever program. And then within a couple of weeks to 30 days is when most people can begin seeing the results. And then you can make the determination whether to reduce or stop giving other things, but that's completely up to you.

Hailey Prest:

Yeah, no, that's what I like too, is it's not a science project to figure out, how many grams is this particular horse get and how much does that one exactly get? It's one scoop, everybody's on the same page. We're all good. Everyone's getting exactly what they need. Nothing more, nothing less. It's pretty basic and self-explanatory.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. It makes it easy. Well, for those tuning in, anybody that might still be on the fence about this, is there any last words you might say to them to get them to try the product?

Hailey Prest:

You know, I ... This is going to be kind of harsh, or not harsh on me, but being ... I've grown up in the performance horse world and I've been [inaudible 00:30:24] competitively for years and I used to trick ride with my sister. And so I've ... There's generally about three girls in the trailer that are barrel racing or doing some kind of performance horse events, we are Googling, researching, being like, this is the new best thing. This is what you need to have. This is it. This is it. This is it. And so I have done the barrel, I call it the barrel racer. When you go into extreme Google mode, and you Google everything to figure out, why is this happening? And the thing I liked about Equinety is that it's, like I said, it is cost effective. So it's not like you're being like, okay, you know what? This is going to cost me $3 a day and I really hope I see a result.

Hailey Prest:

It's $1 a day, because there's a hundred servings in that tub. And it's, the proof's in the pudding. And you've had so many people from all different disciplines contact you. I know, because I've gone on your website and I've seen them for myself. So if you have team ropers, barrel racers, dressage, I don't know if it's dressage equine people, and then show jumpers, and cutters, reiners, everything, and we all agree on one product. I mean, that just speaks for itself in trying it.

John Dowdy:

Yeah. So for those on the fence, get off your duff and try some product, try some Equinety. That's awesome. Well, Hailey Prest out of Canada, I really appreciate you taking the time to share your stories here. I know you're a busy gal and got a lot going on. So I do appreciate you taking the time and hopefully this will hit home with some folks out there and it'll help them out.

Hailey Prest:

Oh, for sure. Well, thank you so much for having me. I really appreciated it.

John Dowdy:

You bet. Well, thanks again. And we'll be talking soon.

Hailey Prest:

Okay. Bye now.

John Dowdy:

Thanks. Bye bye.
