I am a single parent and in order for my daughter to continue with her jumping career, we decided to adopt a retired Thoroughbred from our local organization known as Thoroughbred Retirement of Tampa, Inc. (T.R.O.T). A picture of Promenades Hero was posted on Facebook by T.R.O.T and we instantly knew we wanted him. Hero was being confiscated from his previous owner due to neglect along with 16 others and was extremely underweight. T.R.O.T went to Kentucky and obtained nine of the horses, which were originally theirs. Hero was skin and bones when he finally made it back to Florida but we knew he was the one for us. Hero came right over to my daughter when we went to visit and we looked past his current appearance and knew he would again be the beautiful OTTB he once was with time and proper nutrition.
Our local Cavalor Representative, Summer Thurber, spoke about the wonderful success and benefits we would receive by using Cavalor and gave us samples to "hand out" to Hero when we went to visit. Hero was not on any grain right away due to his poor condition.
When we were able to bring our OTTB home, we started him on Cavalor® Strucomix and Cavalor® Perfomix mixed at a 50/50 ration. We have had Hero for nine months and he looks amazing on his Cavalor feed. He drools at feeding time and his coat is very shiny. He doesn't show any signs of being "hot" and "hard to handle" while being fed Cavalor.
Hero's actual birthday was in April and we celebrated by making him some Cavalor® Mash & Mix cookies. Which he thoroughly enjoyed!
My 14 year old is training him for his new career in the Hunter/Jumper Ring with the assistance of her trainer Debbie Bucciero. My daughter and I are always advising other owners about the benefits of feeding Cavalor.
We recently found out that some of the owners at the barn have been "sneaking" our feed to give as a treat to their horses. I was wondering why we seemed to go through it faster on some weeks. The results we have achieved on Cavalor have been AMAZING and just want to say a big THANK YOU!!!

"I grew up on a farm with an equine veterinarian as a father and cannot remember a time when I did not own horses. I went to college at Auburn University where I earned a BS in Animal Science and my DVM and I have been practicing veterinary medicine for 12 years. When I started playing polo six years ago I fed my horses Purina Strategy. I trusted the company and I was very familiar with their research in animal nutrition. Because I frequently advise my clients not to make changes in an animal's nutrition unless there is a good reason to do so I was very reluctant to make a change myself. A Cavalor representative started talking to me about Cavalor over a year ago but I really was not interested in switching feed as my ponies were doing great. I continued talking to Libby and did some research on my own and began really thinking about my program. I had several older horses, two that were difficult to keep weight on, and another that was frequently choking on her pellets if they weren't fed to her very slowly. Maybe "great" wasn't the right word.
I switched all of my horses to Cavalor three months ago and have been absolutely thrilled. I'm no longer feeding supplements. My thin ones have picked up weight in spite of it being winter. And I have not had a single choking incident. I'm also very happy with how much the horses like it, even the ones that were never good eaters are excited at feeding time.
Thank you Cavalor for your contributions to equine nutrition and thank you to my Cavalor representative, Libby Cifuni for convincing me to make the change."

We have a mare that has difficulty focusing and needs a fair amount of grain and forage to stay in good weight. A professional rider we respect recommended feeding Cavalor® Pianissimo and we have had wonderful success. Cavalor has given us the horse we always knew was "in there"! We also use Cavalor® Performix and Cavalor® Strucomix Senior as a top dress for our other eventers. The horses love Cavalor feeds and they thrive on them.

"The first thing I noticed was that everybody in about two weeks looked shiny and dappled out. I had a horse that was colicing a lot; she's 19 years old. I put her on Cavalor® Strucomix Original and Cavalor® Perfomix and she hasn't had any more colic episodes. She was having baby colics once a week." - Lisa Hickman, Professional Barrel Racer
"Cavalor already has all the supplements my clients were using included in the feed, which cuts down a lot of the time we have to spend mixing the grain in the feed room and really it ends up being more cost effective." - Wanja Gerlach, Professional Dressage Rider
"Sort of as an experiment I switched two of our horses, one being Brianne's [Goutal] oldest horses, he's about 17 now. We had trouble keeping weight on without him getting fat, we moved him over to the Cavalor® Strucomix Senior and Cavalor® Perfomix and then added Cavalor® Superforce in the mix later as well. The change alone in his coat is amazing. We've tried everything, Omega 3, but now he's dabbled and not that mousy brown. He looks as good as our stallion and that says a lot for me." - Tatiana Gabrush, Manager for International Show Jumper Brianne Goutal
We've got a mail from a very enthusiastic Cavalor customer, Suzanna Hayward, who has a small breeding stud of Spanish Arabian horses in Northern France.
"I've been using Cavalor feed for over 5 years now, I'm always satisfied with the quality and so are my horses! My stallion Amoroso de Salvadora competes in jumping, dressage, showing and endurance. He gets Cavalor Strucomix while he's on rest and Cavalor Perfomix while working. He always looks fantastic and has a beautiful shiny coat. Amoroso will be competing at the World Championships in Paris in November in the senior stallion class. He will surely be the oldest horse to participate at nearly 18 years old, but he certainly doesn't look or act his age!
My broodmares are getting Cavalor ProBreed. Whilst in foal and lactating, the mares stay in great condition and the foals grow at a steady rate.
I really like the products of Cavalor, not only do the horses find them very palatable, they are already enriched with the right supplements needed for each discipline and give a fantastic and consistent quality. Cavalor is the best feed that is available for my horses and has the best range of options for all types of horses and all disciplines!"
Additional Information & Education
PUFFED GRAINS TO IMPROVE DIGESTIBILITY
By puffing grains we are able to improve the starch digestibility in the foregut from an average of 5-50% to 85-90%. This reduces the risk of colic and improves the overall digestibility of the complete feed by 30%, meaning you can feed less.
BALANCED BLEND OF VITAMINS AND MINERALS
Not only do we use a balanced blend of high quality vitamins and minerals, but we are always careful to use the most stable versions. While the vitamins we use are always in the most stable form, the minerals we use are always in the most absorbable form.
HIGH QUALITY, SAFE STARCH SOURCES
We believe that the quality and source of the starch greatly impacts digestibility. The sugar and starch content in our feeds come from high quality complex carbohydrates that are highly available to the horse’s digestive system and are safely digested as energy before reaching the hindgut.
LOW MOLASSES CONTENT
We handle our ingredients carefully during the manufacturing process to eliminate all possible dust and we limit the amount of pellets in the feed. This means Cavalor uses molasses only to increase palatibility, rather than using molasses to hide dust.
