Performance Horses love DE!
Divine Performance Horses is a training facility located here in Brady, TX. Our ranch has been located here for 5 generations and over time, gone from a strictly sheep industry, to cattle and sheep, to cattle only, but one of the things that has not changed in this family is, training horses. Training has been a side job in our family for multiple reasons, we need horses here as ranch hands, and to sell for extra side money at the end of the year. I am a 3rd generation horse trainer 5th generation rancher. We have horses coming in and out of training every month from all around. We put our horses through intense training, some more than others, depending on what the owner has them being prepped for. We specialize in race preparation, colt starting, ranching, barrel racing, and more. We host clinics and give riding lessons to McCullough county and surrounding counties. We are huge in the Barrel Futurities and travel with our client's horses as well as ours, to events across the states. We put banners in front of our stalls, advertising our DPH business as well as our sponsors. People ask us what we feed, saying our horses look great, and right now we are telling them about one of our sponsors and the supplement they supply us with: EQ Royal a blood builder, which is great, and does wonders for horses under intense stress and competition, but not all of the horses are on it. What all the horses are on in the DPH barn is DE! We have been using the DE powder for the last 8 months, and we love it! DE is easy, does not break the bank, and our horses have maintained the weight they need, even under intense training.
Where our journey begins with DE:
Part of being a training facility is making sure horses coming and going look great, the process of finding a non chemical supplement that was compatible for horses coming in and out, was a pain to have several different supplements for several different things, when DE does it all at once. While having to feed several different horses. I switched from several high dollar supplements. This resulted with some horses looking great, while others, well, feeding them endless scoops morning and night just to maintain their health and body fat while in training became very pricey. I was stressed but determined to find a supplement that my barn could manage on. I was not impressed with the higher brands nor did I like feeding chemicals and found it hard for horses under training to maintain weight. Needless to say, the horses started dropping weight fast, I was not happy with that product. Immediately dis continued the use of those supplements.
After taking equine nutrition classes, for multiple reason so I can better inform my clients and students on proper feeding management with their horses, talking with my 1st cousin whom I have worked under several years and very close to is vet, we started pulling labels and comparing supplements
We liked what We read with DE. Long story to short for the last 8 months Divine Performance Horses has been feeding DE. With no colic, weight problems, and horses who have seemed to have sensitive stomachs have also done great on the powder. Like previously stated, horses who are here for a short amount of time adjust to DE beautifully and maintain the weight without breaking the bank, this was just what we needed thank you so much! I have some students who I convinced to switch to it love the price as well as the results.
