FOR PURE POWER AND EXPLOSIVE EFFORTS - Cavalor® Superforce is a top-quality sports feed specifically designed to supplement the daily ration of the very active horse during competition. Great for helping the horse perform short explosive efforts (e.g show¬jumping, racing sports, barrel racing, etc). To adequately perform these efforts, the horse’s body primarily uses starches and sugars derived from the forage and concentrates in its diet. Superforce contains an excep¬tional mix of balanced omega fatty acids, in addition to amino acids and an extensive range of vitamins, minerals and easily absorbable trace el¬ements. TIP: Swap Superforce in place of normal feed 2-3 days before events when more energy is needed. It’s a helpful addition to feed ration for lazy performance horses.
Indication for useQuantity per 220 lbs. of live body weight in addition to at least 16.5 lbs. of forage [hay]. Medium exertion: 1.3 lbs; Training and performance: max 1.7 lbs.

"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."

"Cavalor is a wonderful company to be associated with. Cavalor feeds and supplements are superior and keep my horses in top form. Their coats are always shiny, weight and muscle perfectly proportioned, and nutritional needs met on many levels. Their customer service is amazing as well. They are always there to answer any of my questions and concerns and take great pride in their products. My horses look and feel great! Thanks Cavalor!"

"My horses seem calmer with the right amount of energy on Cavalor feed. They clean the feed right up!" Dallas Wedel, Professional Reining Trainer
"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
Additional Information & Education
PUFFED GRAINS FOR INCREASED DIGESTIBILITY
By puffing grains we are able to improve the starch digestibility in the foregut from an average of 5-50% to 85-90%. These grains travel through the stomach and small intestine at a slower rate, allowing the digestive enzymes more time to act on the feed. More nutrients in the feed are released for the horse to absorb while avoiding any rapid releases of sugar and starch, which is critical for horses with metabolic issues.
SUGAR AND STARCH FOR EXPLOSIVE ENERGY
Non-structural carbohydrates (including starch and sugar) are broken down and absorbed in the small intestine, and then stored as glycogen in the muscles and liver. When a sport horse is asked to per¬form short intense efforts, this anaerobic activity will break down glycogen in the muscles into lactic acid. Superforce provides the horse with the energy he needs to perform well during the intensive efforts.
VITAMIN E AND SELENIUM
The combination of extra vitamin E and selenium in Superforce combats the formation of lactic acid and avoids muscle acidification. Sufficient selenium and vitamin E supplementation has been used to prevent muscle disorders (tying-up) in some horses.
