FAQ

Can Cavalor OilMega replace other Cavalor products (for example Cavalor Resist or Cavalor Muscle Fit)?
No, these are different products that act on different levels. Cavalor OilMega provides energy and influences the fatty acid composition and the immunity status of the animal. The NAB in OilMega may help the microflora to fight against pathogens. Cavalor Resist provides nutrients necessary to improve antioxidant and immunity status, as well as to help the horse protect itself from environmental influences that may impair its health (e.g., horses that will be subjected to international transportation or to different environments). Cavalor Muscle Fit is especially designed to provide nutrients that support muscle health and provide dietary tools to prevent fatigue. Horses with muscle problems may benefit from the combined supplementation of Cavalor Muscle Fit and Cavalor OilMega.
How long does it take to see the effect of Cavalor Muscle Fit?
Riders should be able to feel an improvement on the suppleness of their horses’ muscles within a few days.
Do different kinds of energy need different kinds of energy sources to function properly?
There are two different types of energy sources: aerobic and anaerobic. Aerobic and anaerobic refer to the presence and absence of oxygen. Aerobic energy refers to the use of oxygen. Most of our cells prefer to get their energy by using oxygen to fuel metabolism. During aerobic exercise, with adequate fuel and oxygen, muscle cells can contract repeatedly without fatigue (e.g., Endurance, Driving, Dressage, Eventing, long distance racing). For aerobic activity, suitable rations should be high in vegetable fats, such as soy oil, corn oil and linseed oil. Anaerobic energy refers to not using oxygen. Muscle cells must rely on other reactions that do not require oxygen to fuel muscle contraction (e.g., high intensity exercises such as: Show Jumping and short distance racing). For anaerobic activity, suitable rations should contain higher levels of starch such as oats, wheat, etc. It is important to pay close attention to avoid an overdose on sugars and starches, as it can cause muscle problems. Bottom line, feed as needed based on the level of activity of your horse. To avoid muscle fatigue, we recommend supplementing your horse’s diet with Cavalor Muscle Liq, or Cavalor Muscle Fit.
Can I provide Cavalor Muscle Fit daily for a prolonged period?
Yes, horses sensitive to muscle stress may especially benefit from daily supplementation with Cavalor Muscle Fit for longer periods.
What is the difference between Cavalor Muscle Fit and Cavalor Muscle Liq?
Cavalor Muscle Fit contains high-quality nutrients that improve muscle function and therefore help prevent the onset of fatigue. Cavalor Muscle Fit should be used several days before competition and as a nutritional support for horses with muscle problems. Cavalor Muscle Liq can best be used during training, while Cavalor Muscle Fit can be given two days before, during and one day after competition.

Testimonials

Birgit Warkentin

I used Cavalor® Freebute Pro together with Cavalor® Muscle Fit during races in Bad Doberan. It was the hottest weekend of this summer, the race was delayed and my horse had to wait in the hot trailer for three hours. She was already very sweaty before we started the race. Despite the heat and all the excitement before the race, we still won that race! I am convinced that Cavalor® Freebute Pro contributed to my victory and I will definitely use it again. Birgit Warkentin - Germany

Carmen Rotfuss – Germany

After the second administration of Cavalor® Muscle Fit my stallion already felt significantly more relaxed during riding! Carmen Rotfuss - Germany

Anne Steffenowski

I didn't like the smell of Cavalor® Muscle Fit and I really doubted that my horse would eat it because he is a picky eater. Surprisingly, without any problem he ate the Cavalor® Muscle Fit. After a week of administration I really felt that he was more supple during work, especially in his back. In the middle of the treatment I was a bit unsure whether it was still having that big effect. But when I stopped the administration I really noticed the difference. I can surely recommend Cavalor® Muscle Fit and will give my horse another four-week treatment at winter time. Anne Steffenowski - Germany

Olaf Carsten Korries

I have a big, clumsy show jumper, who lacks energy. I administered Cavalor® Muscle Fit through a four-week treatment, and in my personal opinion it was hard to judge the improvement. But I really noticed the effect of Cavalor® Muscle Fit when I stopped the use. My horse had less appetite and was surely less flexible. Olaf Carsten Korries - Germany

Claudia Pohl

Right from the start my horse was surely more flexible when I administered Cavalor® Muscle Fit. Both my horse and I had more joy at riding! Claudia Pohl - Germany

Barbara Minneci, member of the Belgian Paralympic Team, 2012 Olympic Games

"By providing optimal nutritional advice for four team horses, Cavalor gave Belgian riders a great opportunity to maximize our preparations for the Paralympic Games.
First I was asked for detailed information about my mare, Barilla, including her current diet and any specific problems she was having. Cavalor also asked me to get a blood test so they could make a complete assessment and optimally adapt my horse's diet.
My mare has a large muscle mass and metabolism issues that make her very sensitive to a diet too rich in sugars and proteins. If her diet is lacking nutrients, especially during periods of intensive training or performance, muscle problems can rapidly result. Therefore it is important to find other sources of energy in her diet.
Cavalor advised me to supplement Barilla's diet with Cavalor® Oilmega and Cavalor® MuscleFit.

Cavalor® Oilmega increased the fat content of the diet. As a result, I quickly found that my mare developed improved endurance without becoming more nervous.
After only a few days of using Cavalor® MuscleFit, Barilla became more flexible in the muscles and showed no stiffness, even after an extended workout.
Cavalor didn't only provide advice but also gave me everything I needed for my horse to be in top condition for the Games!
Upon arrival in London, Barilla showed excellent recovery after exercise, which enabled her to stay in great shape throughout the Games.
The vet was very alert for any sign of muscular discomfort, but my mare remained flexible in her body, supple in her gaits and had an excellent mood throughout the Games ;-)
Cavalor's contribution to the fitness of our horses was proven by the results the Belgian team achieved in London! "

 

Koos De Ronde

"Cavalor® products were a big help to me in winning the FEI World Cup Driving Championship. Because of this, my horses stayed very fit over the entire three days. It is a very strenuous competition. I always give each of my horses Cavalor® An Energy Boost a half-hour before we go. Cavalor® FreeBute was also important because our driving time was at midnight, and there was not as much time as usual to cool out the horses. Giving them Cavalor® Muscle Fit in the evening made them supple for the next day. Cavalor® First Aid Spray always travels with me, and some of my horses also get Cavalor® OilMega. For one of my team horses, the most important thing for peak performance and well-being is Cavalor® SoZen, which I like for its calming effect. I'm happy with Cavalor's wide range of proven products because they keep my horses feeling good and fit to compete at top levels."

Janet Persson

Hello from Sweden!
I have been trying Cavalor Muscle Fit on my Camargue horse that has PSSM for 2 or 3 months now.
Cavalor Muscle Fit is the only supplement that could keep him over the edge.
We started the groundwork and it works great, I am very happy with the result.
My horse's diet contains: low starch hay 24/7, molasses free alfalfa, no grass and 2 bags of Cavalor Muscle Fit per day.

Heather Gillete, Trainer, Eventing Professional

"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!"

Hokan Thorn, Professional Dressage Rider

"When I moved from Atlanta to South Carolina I received several clients who were on Cavalor and had had great success. I actually feed less now and the horses look great. They have lots of muscle without looking heavy. What I most liked about the product is I can see what's in the feed. I'm very happy with Cavalor." - Hokan Thorn, Professional Dressage Rider

Letter from Mr Takanari Kusunoki, Japan

Thank you Cavalor for your feeding advice! I followed your advice strictly in preparation for the Asian Games. Daily my horse, Fairbanks Cargo gets Cavalor Strucomix Original with Cavalor Endurix. First he got a treatment with Cavalor Hepato Liq to remove the fatigue and to cleanse his liver and after, depending on the condition we adjusted his muscle strength with Cavalor Muscle Force. Two weeks before the departure to the Games I started the cure with Cavalor Resist and on the way from Japan to Korea I used Cavalor Emergency 911. Fairbanks Cargo arrived in perfect shape and did not suffer from the travel. In training days I supported my horse with Cavalor FreeBute and Cavalor Muscle Fit. During competition days I added Cavalor Kick Up, to give that extra energy push. The care products my groom used are Cavalor Muscooler and Cavalor Ice Clay. The Cavalor products really worked as expected and we had a fantastic competition. I ended winning Silver in the team and placed 9th in the individual competition and I was very happy !

For the reference, Mr Kusunoki visited Japanese Cavalor distributor from far away to say "Thank you" and he hang a silver medal on the distributor's neck!!

 

 

Alice Naber – My horses look fit and in tip-top condition. Thanks, Cavalor!

The 4 Stars of Pau cross took place recently. The event was a must for our Cavalor Ambassador Alice Naber and her two horses, Coral Estate Harry Belafonte and Coral Estate Curacao. She told us about her adventure in Pau with great enthusiasm. ‘Both horses did their very best! Curacao learned a lot and Belafonte breezed through the difficult 4* cross round – and well within time too. How cool was that! And it’s partly thanks to Cavalor. I think their products are great, especially Cavalor OilMega. I’m so impressed with that! I also got some compliments from the team vet. Once again he had nothing to do. Perfect! The combination of OilMega, Muscle Fit and Endurix works a treat. You can see the results in the pictures. My horses look fit and in tip-top condition! Thanks, Cavalor!’

Additional Information & Education

CAVALOR® MUSCLE FIT (Enriched with isolated whey proteins) - Professional Line
Helps prevent muscular problems


Cavalor Muscle Fit should be used before and after intense efforts to obtain optimal muscle fitness and flexibility. After 2 days, your horse will be less subject to muscle stiffness and soreness.

Indication for use
Muscle cramps and stiffness are phenomena that human athletes can relate to. Riders who lack sufficient athletic condition may also suffer from these muscle problems. Top competition horses experience similar problems. Since the performance level is high, it is essential to prevent acidosis. The consequences of not recognizing, preventing and solving muscle stiffness is well known: loss of condition, not being able to participate in competitions, injuries, and perhaps even an end to participation in all competitive sports. Competition horses have a greater need for these nutrients. Horses that have had previous muscle problems may remain sensitive to these problems. The administration of Cavalor Muscle Fit for 2 to 3 days before a heavy effort will result in improved muscle action.

Composition
Cavalor Muscle Fit contains a wide selection of nutritional elements that counteract the production of acid and break down and remove accumulated acid relatively quickly, even under strenuous conditions. Cavalor Muscle Fit has been recently enriched with isolated whey protein, an immuno-compound that aids muscle performance by its antioxidant activity. The composition of Cavalor Muscle Fit - a mixture of specific vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, sulfur precursors, natural anti-oxidants and other nutrients - makes it a product often recommended by specialists.
For precise dosage and a long shelf life, Cavalor Muscle Fit is supplied in small sachets. It contains: vitamins E, B1, B2, B12, B15; herbs; trace elements: manganese, zinc, selenium; calcium, sodium, magnesium, lysine, methionine (see packaging for label values).

Dosage
Two sachets (30 grams/ 1,06 oz) per animal per day mixed in the feed. Cavalor Muscle Fit can be given preventively several days prior to strenuous exercise (to prevent stiff muscles) or for 3 to 4 weeks in cases where stiffness is detected afterwards (Maximum dose: 120 grams/ 4,2 oz per animal per day).

Packaging
- Box containing 90 sachets of 15 grams/ 0,53 oz each
- Pail containing 2 kg/ 4 lb.
- Pail containing 5 kg/ 11 lb.
