What Is Lactic Acid and Why Is It a Problem?

The #1 Way to Remove Lactic Acid From Your Horse’s Muscles

For performance horses and aging equines alike, the Leg Saver is the number one treatment to help remove lactic acid from your horse. Combined with trotting, this is a surefire way to address lactic acid buildup in your horse.

What Is Lactic Acid and Why Is It a Problem?

When Lactic Acid build-up is not addressed, it settles deep into the sacroiliac and spinal cord with devastating results to the long-term performance of your horse. Lactic acid is a side-effect of energy generation in the muscles without the presence of oxygen, leading to muscle acidosis and ultimately, muscle fatigue. The build-up of lactic acid causes pain in the horse’s rear end, often resulting in problems with the front legs, such as bowed tendons, wind puffs ligament, joint and hoof issues.

The Winning Combo: Trotting and Leg Saver

Strictly walking your horse for doesn’t remove this toxic lactic acid, while galloping can actually increase levels, driving it deeper into the horse’s body and spinal cord. However, the Leg Saver treatments combined with trotting resulted in increased performance levels for every breed of performance horse: Race, Grand Prix, Jumpers, Endurance, Barrel Racers, and Polo Ponies.

Lactic Acid Build-up Treatment with Leg Saver:

Treat the Tip of the Tail, Sacroiliac, and Bai Hui points simultaneously with 5 electro-pads that run down the spinal cord to the base of the tail with the Leg Saver copper coupling that secures directing on the Tip of the Tail, for about an hour. Trot your horse during or immediately following the treatment for half an hour to enhance its effectiveness. Treatment should be administered 3 days prior to the race or event, as well as the day before the event and always the day following. Maintain trotting for a couple of days post-race or event as well.

Leg Saver’s proven results are evident in our satisfied clients whose performance horses exercise pain-free post race. We are continually improving our protocols and developing new ones to ensure every horse has the best possible chance at a healthy career.

In keeping: Wishing You & Yours a very Happy Holidays and a Healthy, Happy New Year!

Firewater’s Faith Winning SCBRA Horse with Most Heart and SECCC Year End 1-D saddle

Firewater’s Faith went out on top.  Her death came as a sock to many.  But her memory will live on for years to come.  Faith and I ended up 6th over all in the Open competition for SCBRA and once again she was voted “Horse With The Most Heart” by the SCBRA members.  Faith won this prestigious award the year she won the SCBRA Novice horse in 2013.  Her first year in competition.  So need less to say this was a overwhelming surprise to Shane and I at the awards dinner.   That the members felt she should be honored with the award again for 2017, her last year on earth.  Thank you SCBRA members for your love of Faith and I.   For full year-end results for SCBRA you can go to: “Southern Colorado Barrel Racing Assoc.”  Facebook page.

Firewaters Faith 2008-2017

Faith and I won the year end 1-D saddle for SECCC.  She went into the lead in August and was able to hold on to it even after her death. Winning three barrel races in a row in August gave her a huge lead.  Faith always wanted to prove she was the best but I was not always able to ride her to the best of her potential. I look forward to riding her in heaven where I will be able to ride her to her full potential.  Faith won the 1-D saddle for SECCC three years in a row starting with  2015.  She was a winner and a champion in many different arenas and I did enjoy the ride and the places she took Shane and I in a few short years.

ULCERS – A problem for 90% of performance horses.

“Every hour, the parietal cells lining a horse’s stomach secrete more than 6 cups of concentrated acid – it’s part of the digestive processes of an animal meant to graze all day and all night. A constant supply of food passing through the stomach requires a constant supply of acid to help digest it.”
– Rex Ewing – Formulator of Formula 707 ULZERless

The modern horse has a different life than a wild horse or most pastured horses:

  • Limited access to pasture on which to graze;
  • Less frequent feeding (typically only 2-3 times per day);
  • High grain diets;
  • Stress from training, travel and competition.

Horses under these conditions frequently begin to exhibit signs of gastric problems and discomfort:

  • Weight Loss
  • Irritability
  • Poor appetite
  • Lack of Energy

Formula 707 ULZERless was specifically developed to address these symptoms, aid in digestion and ease the often damaging effects of acid on the stomach lining. In an independent clinical study of horses exhibiting signs of gastric discomfort (led by veterinarian Dr. Joe Stricklin), Formula 707 ULZERless was effective in supporting a healthy stomach in 100% of the horses tested.

An affordable, effective and 100% GUARANTEED way to maintain stomach health, Formula 707 ULZERless is available for less than $2 per day, and is safe and recommended for continuous feeding.

Formula 707 ULZERless … veterinary-approved, clinically researched, and remarkably effective … The best choice for performance horses or those that exhibit signs of gastric issues.
